Michele Lisenbury Christensen

People often think they need to figure out their relationship challenges between the two of them.   They think they should, that the problems aren’t so bad they need help, and that they have what it takes to solve it.  If you think those things, you may be right!  This episode is here to help you get to the bottom of whatever has you stuck, or to understand why you can’t.  Either way, it’s definitely worth your time if there’s something you want to  have be better in your relationship.


As you listen to this episode, you'll learn:

  • Discover the 3 keys needed to create a change in your relationship 
  • Why couples feel like they need to figure out their relationship problems on their own, even though they often can’t  
  • Is “Happily Ever After” an unrealistic expectation?
  • The secret to why even the most high-functioning people have relationship challenges 
  • 2 really painful lies that challenge your relationship

And more.

People are annoying. They don't do what we want them to do. They need things from us at just the wrong time.  It is terribly inconvenient to live with another person and all the more so if they rely on us, or we rely on them for deeply felt needs or wants. When they are Your Person and you are Their Person, you’re guaranteed to plug one another in.
