Why are relationships so damn hard!? Simply put: We weren’t born with all of the tools to live, love and create a life with another human. It takes practice and hard work. Like any good tool box, the more variety of solid tools you have, the better you’ll be able to repair things (your relationship). Listen to this episode’s value bomb of a show to learn key tools to start applying to your relationship today.

In this episode we discuss relationship advice topics that include:

  • Learn the importance of making your partner feel understood
  • Why we should not try to fix our partners problems and instead just listen and show empathy
  • The critical ability to be accountable and show genuine remorse when you make a mistake
  • Understanding the perspective of your partner to create compromises
  • Communicating with positive statements to empower your partner
  • And much more!

Dr. Erin Leonard has been a practicing psychotherapist for over 20 years. She is a writer for Psychology Today, award winning author of 3 books, TV contributor and mom.
