Episode 181: When You're Outgrowing Your Spouse

September 05, 2023

A common issue I talk with people about is what to do when it seems like you are growing at a faster rate than your spouse.

You are more self aware, working through your triggers, showing up as a better partner.

Yet, it seems like your spouse is stuck with the same issues, reactions and mentality that made your marriage hard in the first place.

It can be confusing for what you should do.

Do you just need to be more patient?

Will they ever come around?

How can you find happiness with someone who's not moving in the same direction you are?

I address these common questions inside this podcast episode.

This is a conversation where we normalize different rates of growth and transformation because that's what happens in marriage.

You grow, evolve and change at different paces.

Tune in to find out why this happens, and more importantly, what you can do to keep yourself well and on track with your personal growth.

I'll break down 5 specific steps to take, and also leave you with a pep talk to encourage you to keep going with your inner work so that you have more peace and fulfillment as your spouse walks their own journey.

Mentioned in this episode: I have openings for private coaching, or my group program, The Marriage UpGrade. If you are ready to improve the quality of your marriage, or learn how to be less affected by your spouse, I'd love to support you.
