A few weeks ago I had an interesting conversation with JJ Flizanes, host of the Men, Women, and Relationships podcast.

She and I have completely different life stories—she is in the process of getting divorced, has a wonderful new partner, no children, and is a well-known podcast personality who has lived most of her life in southern California. Two of her big areas of expertise are fitness and astrology.

Meanwhile, I have been married 23 years, have four children, lived on the east coast, the middle of the country, and am now in northern California. I could easily continue to compare and contrast us in many regards, continuing to point out our differences, yet… when it comes to relationships and what matters, our viewpoints are deeply aligned.

We both believe that our partner triggers our unhealed childhood wounds so they come to light and can be integrated and ultimately become a source of fuel for deeper connection. We both believe being authentic and committed to our own growth is essential for a healthy, vibrant and passionate relationship.

This week, instead of writing more for you to read, I invite you to have a listen to our conversation–I have heard from multiple people who listened that they really loved it and got a great deal of value from listening to the show.
