Here’s a question: What are you supposed to do when you’re more into personal development than your spouse? How do you navigate this? Can you encourage and support one another on your own journeys to growth while remaining united? Are you able to pursue personal growth as a couple?
I mean, is it even possible?
To find out, Matt joined me for an interview. Together, we interviewed Gerard and Jessie to dive deep into this topic.
Gerard and Jessie host the Marriage Is Funny podcast. In this episode of SHE, they’re serving up all sorts of relatable stories, helpful tools, and practical steps we can take toward growing together as couples. That means even if we’re growing differently, we can grow together.
Tune in to learn:
- What to consider when pursuing personal development while doing life with another person
- How to respect and work through your different approaches to growth without losing sight of your own goals
- Ideas to align your mental, emotional, spiritual, and lifestyle goals as a couple. (ie. addressing overlap and potential opposition with respect)
- And why setting up some “family rules” can actually help support the relationship
Personal Growth as a Couple
If you know that you and your S/O need to get on the same page, or at least find better ways to support your personal growth as a couple without growing apart, pour a glass and hit play.
You won’t want to miss a second of this one!
