Maybe it’s me.

When You “Tripped Up” in Partnership

Laurie talks about her near divorce experience. She was about 10 years into a relationship, 5 years into marriage, 2 kids, living in a small apartment in New York City. She was still getting coaching and was asked what her dream was and what she’s inspired by. In that moment she couldn’t answer. The more she probbed, she realized she did care a lot about intimacy, communication, and feeling connected. But, essentially Laurie had given up on it.

Proudest Moment In Partnership

Laurie refers back to the same story of finding her connection with her husband again. That’s the bravest and most comprehensive she has ever been. She wanted to chicken out at so many stages, but she didn’t. She acted in accordance with her highest ideals at every step of the way. It was their true, bright turning point for their relationship.
