Insights and Invites
Dave: Lack of attention leads to loss of connection. Physical, emotional, and spiritual connection all have an impact on your partner, what will you do to strengthen those areas?
Liz: The key of the “We” and having each other’s backs, we all want someone to get us and know us. You are in this together.
Lee: Remember the pause button, did you hit pause and what is it going to take to un-pause it. Get more intentional about connecting from a physical, spiritual, and emotional level. Take action.
- Shift from “you and me” to “we”. Remember that you are a team, and it is important to acknowledge those struggles as a team.
