Do you ever find yourself experiencing resistance when it comes to taking positive steps to improve your marriage?
You resist pausing before saying a hurtful comment to your spouse.
You resist reaching out to your spouse when you're feelings are hurt.
You resist expressing your love when it feels unreciprocated.
You resist taking a long look at yourself and how you are contributing to your issues.
You resist letting go of resentment and continue to hold a grudge.
These are normal experiences that many people go through.
There are a number of reasons you may be experiencing resistance right now.
In this podcast episode I break down the 7 most common reasons I see among my clients and give you some specific next steps to take to move yourself forward.
