Ahhh, difficult words to consistently live by, aren’t they???? Certainly, for me they are! And when I don’t live by them I suffer. My coupleship suffers.
Jami would rather hear me fearlessly and gently express my truth than suppress it out of fear of being misunderstood or abandoned.
These are unprecedented times.
The stress level in coupleships is higher than ever before and you don’t have to let it take your dreams for yourself and your relationship away from you. So what can you do right now?
The answer is to cherish yourself enough to have a better conversation. This means doing things that you have not done.
It means making better agreements as you grow so that you can grow together instead of apart.
It means getting honest about your online shopping addiction, your porn use, your busyness, your stubbornness, or who is making you feel good about yourself on social media, or whatever other numbing-out technique you’re choosing at the moment.
It means letting your feelings about finances or how your partner treats
you be felt and known in humility and love.
It means doing the hardest thing you’ll ever do...be truthful, gentle, and fearless.
