Noticing The Small Bids of Connection With Your Partner
In today’s episode, I had the delight of bringing back a colleague and friend of mine who specializes in working with couples to build long-lasting relationships. Julie and I discuss the importance of building a culture of awareness within your relationship that encourages couples to note each other’s need for attention, appreciation, love, and for respect.
Individuality is vital in any relationship. Each person needs to have a sense of freedom and be their authentic self, not to feel oppressed.
