Welcome to episode 265 of the Love Live Connection podcast! I often talk about how some gaslight-y things go on in the world of personal development, but Amy Smith doesn’t do that. I think the way she teaches about communication, vulnerability, and boundaries is her sweet spot. She also inspires me when she talks about her 20+ year marriage, which is why I’ve invited her as a guest today as we talk about how to make a long term relationship work.
If you feel like you don’t have a healthy relationship model to inspire you, then this episode’s for you. Listen to what’s underneath the surface of what she’s saying so you can emulate it with your relationship.
6:36 – Amy gives an overview of her relationship
11:13 – Why her marriage feels freeing instead of restrictive
16:59 – Intimacy and vulnerability as directly related to each other
23:07 – How we can over-glorify relationships these days
27:37 – Amy’s advice on personal growth and development in a relationship
33:32 – Tips for maintaining and daily care-taking of a marriage
42:08 – How Amy and her husband manage conflict in their relationship
47:07 – Communication tips for resolving marital conflicts
51:16 – What you need to do if you want change from your partner
