LISTEN TO THE SHOW:
How to Stop Compromising and What to Do Instead
Some friends of mine couldn’t agree about the color for the kitchen cabinets. He wanted white cabinets and she wanted dark cabinets. So they compromised and got gray cabinets, and then nobody was happy.
And isn’t that just the way with compromising? Sometimes it seems like nobody gets what they want. It’s lose-lose instead of win-win.
Everybody says you have to compromise to get along in marriage, but I haven’t compromised in my marriage for two decades.
Neither has my husband. And we get along pretty darn well!
How is that possible?
On today’s episode of The Empowered Wife Podcast we’re talking about how to stop compromising and what to do instead:
- You’ll learn how to eliminate conflict without having to compromise.
- My guest Britny’s marriage felt beyond repair because of infidelity on both parts and separation. He was so cold and hurtful to her that she wasn’t convinced there was anything to save. But today she says her marriage is better than ever, and that her husband is continuously telling her sweet things and how amazing she is. They are truly happy and close! She’s going to tell us how she did that.
- The Worst Relationship Advice of the Week comes from the co-worker of one of my students and is truly cruel and judgmental.
Hi! I’m Laura.
I was the perfect wife–until I actually got married. When I tried to tell my husband how to be more romantic, more ambitious, and tidier, he avoided me. I dragged him to marriage counseling and nearly divorced him. I then started talking to women who had what I wanted in their marriages and that’s when I got my miracle. The man who wooed me returned.
I wrote a few books about what I learned and accidentally started a worldwide movement of women who practice The Six Intimacy Skills™ that lead to having amazing, vibrant relationships. The thing I’m most proud of is my playful, passionate relationship with my hilarious husband John–who has been dressing himself since before I was born.
