Can’t set boundaries in relationships? Wish your marriage was better? In a pandemic, relationships can really fall apart. Marriage and family therapist Kimberly Holmes has great marriage and relationship tips for us in this show
This show begins with a little pep talk about saying ‘No’ to the people you love from my blog… you can do it, girl. I promise! This is especially for you if you struggle with keeping your head on straight, and you know there has to be a better way. Bon courage!
Here are the questions I asked at the end of that essay, which also happens to be a chapter in my book, The Extremely Busy Woman’s Guide to Self-Care
Whom do you need to set limits with in your personal life?
What would you like to request?
When will you request it?
Just what will you say?
My guest, Kimberly Holmes, has a lot to say about peaceful, healthy relationships. Specifically, she’s here to help us get on—and stay on—the ‘Love Path’. That’s what she calls it, and her advice is nothing less than inspiring!Among other things, I learned:
- The four stages of attraction
- Her history and what got HER on the Love Path
- How stress and COVID impacts our relationships
- Why ‘COVID Divorce’ is a thing
- The process of falling in love
- The second stage of marriage
- How to manage the differences between us that become fights
- How to get the help you need (a really great technique)
May this help you have the happiest relationship you’ve ever had.
Here’s to you and your self-care!
