406- Three Strategies to Improve Your Relationship

Today’s episode was inspired by a conversation with a dear friend who was seeking relationship advice. 


The truth is that many relationships face similar challenges — even relationships that aren’t romantic. 


As I explained the significance of self-awareness in her relationship, the role of her childhood wounds in shaping her interactions, and how to effectively repair and improve the communication in her relationship, I realized that the conversation was something everyone could benefit from. 


If you would like to start improving your relationship today, stop what you’re doing and listen to this week’s episode.


In this episode, I share the three strategies you can use to improve your relationship:

  1. Self-reflection and ownership
  2. Healthy communication
  3. Effective repair strategies 


I also include actionable tips centered on understanding yourself better to improve the dynamics of your interactions with others.


Listen to discover:

  • The importance of self-awareness in relationships
  • How your childhood impacts your relationships
  • The power of direct questions in communication
  • Techniques for expressing needs and wants effectively to partners
  • What “stonewalling” is and how it affects your relationships
  • How to manage your and your partner’s emotional needs
