#32: Dr. Jennifer Finlayson-Fife - How to Fix Your Relationship with a Partnership Mindset

Sep 30, 2020

 Have you ever had trouble in a relationship? (I know, that's a dumb question, right?)

For some it's serious enough that you're contemplating ending the relationship.
But even if you feel you have a "great" marriage or relationship, most of us underestimate how much more happiness, connection, and excitement COULD be there with a little guidance.   

On this episode you're going to learn how to stop chopping at the branches of the problem and start striking at the roots

We interviewed Dr. Jennifer Finlayson-Fife. She helps couples and individuals learn how to strengthen their relationships, overcome relational and sexual roadblocks, and increase their capacity for intimacy, love, and sexual expression.

A few nuggets we discuss with Dr. Finlayson-fife

  • The virtue of desire (Owning our wants in a positive, empowering way)
  • How we show up in the world and our relationships 
  • Figuring what type of partner you are
  • Partners in Marriage (Room for two)
  • "We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them." - Einstein
  • Real Partnership (Not compromise but the better, 3rd way)
  • Being at peace with who we are and our desires (especially sexual desire)
  • Seeing conflict for what it really is (or at least could be)
  • One up and One down positions (with examples of how we do that in our relationships)
  • Losing Strategies to avoid (e.g. costly accommodation, entitlement, overt and covert punishment, etc.) 
  • The more honest you are with yourself, the more you can deal with "what is."  (increased ability and self-respect)
  • Intimacy Vs Validation
  • Not vilifying the "other side"
