Are you making excuses for your significant other? Or are you genuinely accepting them and meeting them with understanding? Find out in this episode.
You’ve heard me say it a lot: it IS important to accept our partner for who they are.
But, if accepting them feels to you more like you're resigning yourself to things not feeling good between you, or you feel like you’re having to tolerate bad behavior from your significant other, you may be just making excuses for them-- not genuinely accepting them.
If so, you're doing it wrong. In fact, I have a name for this : disempowered acceptance. And it actually takes away your power of influence to make your marriage better.
So today I want to help you do acceptance right.
Because when you are genuinely accepting your partner, you are actually MORE capable of making improvements and inspiring positive change in your marriage.
I call this Empowered Acceptance.
Dive in to hear me lay it all out. I even share a story from my own marriage that will help you understand how to do it yourself.
Listen in to find out how you can, too!
