Guiding Principle, Quote or Mantra

Get out of your head and quiet yourself down, and listen to that inner voice.

When You Tripped Up

She became single after being married for 28 years. At a certain point her life wanted her to go in a different direction but she ignored it for a period of time. The guilt grew worse before she finally stopped ignoring it and moved forward.

The “DUH” moment that changed your partnerships forever

The moment she woke up and stopped being in fear. She was a therapist during that time so her marriage was “not supposed to fall apart”. For some time she figured she was supposed to fix it. It’s the moment that she woke up and realized that she can’t do that, that’s not going to happen. That’s when things changed. She surrendered to her true path.

Proudest moment in partnership

When she found her current husband through online dating. She became very open to finding her partner. She never pictured herself with someone like him but she was open to the chance of it. He’s so different from anyone she ever thought she would end up with. She realizes more and more how perfect he is for her.

What is the best partnership / relationship advice you have ever received?

“Take responsibility for your own happiness. To not ask your partner to be responsible for making you happy. They can contribute but it really comes down to you”.

About the author, Ken

I am the producer and host of Speaking of Partnership, a podcast that was inspired by a life of wearing the badge of self-sufficiency and independence proudly, until I realized it wasn't really a badge...it was armor.

My passion is helping you experience the power and payoffs of partnership by understanding and appreciating the opposite sex so you can feel safe, confident and understood in your personal, professional and family partnerships.
