Marriage (Im)Perfectionism

Updated: Sep 6, 2023

If you find yourself asking, “Did I marry the wrong person?”, wondering if maybe there is someone better out there for you, or noticing a lot of what is not so great about your partner—or generally feeling dissatisfied with your marriage— this episode is for you.

This is so common as highly sensitive people, not just because our partner's faults tend to loom large to us, but because our society gives us the idea that it's possible to have a perfect partner, a “Mr. Right”.

This seriously (and sneakily) undermines our ability to be happy in our marriage… because every REAL human will ALWAYS fall short. And we will be disappointed and endlessly dissatisfied and longing for something better.

This is what I think of as Marriage Perfectionism. And even if you don't think you're a perfectionist, you may still be under the spell of marriage perfectionism–and having the life sucked out of you and your marriage because of it.

If you want to re-enliven the love, attraction, and joy in your marriage--and make it all LAST– then having an imperfect partner is the BEST opportunity to do so–if you take advantage.

Because the solution isn't your partner being more Mr Right. It’s about you learning to love more perfectly. Listen in to hear all about it.

Listen in to find out how you can, too!
