Resistance can come in many other forms and may come from a huge array of different fears in your mind and your partner’s mind.

Growth is not about how much the other person NEEDS to grow. It’s about you and where you are, to where you want to go. Who do you want to be? How do you want to treat others? How do you want to treat your partner?

Growth Tip 2:

Talk about your experiences and share your personal goals.

Explain where you feel you are and ask the other person to hold you accountable to grow to the next level.
