Healthy Relationship Advice
A friend and fellow relationship expert, Annie Lalla, once told me, your beloved’s “desires mean something good about them.” Because of this foundation, I recommend couples aim to YES each other. It’s great if your go-to reaction is to want your beloved to have their desires met. Of course without sacrificing your own needs, boundaries, feelings or desires either. Holding YES as a foundation, while exploring the nuances of each other’s “Nos'' can build intimacy in a deep and powerful way.

Resolving the hurdle we were facing was important, but HOW we handled it was even MORE important. Crossing the finish line as enemies or even with any adversarial or disconnected dynamic between us was NOT worth it. Plus we could accomplish so much more, with greater ease and better results if we worked on the hurdle as a united front, and stopped trading warring assaults. Scan our list for the healthy habits that YOU commit to leaning into to create more TEAM between you and your beloved.
No one needs to attend a workshop on how to stress out or lash out at your beloved. Getting upset, blaming your beloved, complaining about how things are… it happens all too naturally. Learning to work together as a team, ESPECIALLY during stressful times, is a CRITICAL skill to fold into any healthy, happy and hot Couple Culture. It takes something, yet one of my favorite reminders/mantras is “Wonderful is worth it!”
It sounds so terrible that you’d ever, even for a moment see your beloved as your adversary, yet it happens all the time, even in the best of marriages. It’s all too easy to end up in an adversarial dynamic with your beloved if you don’t invest in intimacy and build an intentional Couple Culture. Life is more often than not full and full-on whether it be work, family, health, whatever, there’s often A LOT going on. Maintaining connection, intimacy and allyship TAKES SOMETHING!
