Why is love the most beautiful experience, yet we all have relationship struggles?
Right now, we are still living through COVID. For some people, it’s strengthened their relationships with their partners. For others, it’s brought on conversations and conflicts that raise big questions and put major stress on the relationship.
Online Communities Bring Connection
Today’s podcast guest, Naomi Stonier, lives in Italy. I’m extremely grateful for online communities that are focused on growth and vulnerability. Naomi and I met over my comment online when I shared how I’ve been having a huge block in communication with my partner and our differences of opinion. In the most sincere way, she let me know she was available to listen during a call. It’s on communities like these where I’ve connected with new friends like Naomi in the most unexpected threads and conversations.
Little did I know, Noami is a relationship coach, trained and qualified by the official training school of Tony Robbins. Yes—THE Tony Robbins. During our conversation, she held a space for me that I really needed. The conversation we had felt like something a lot of people in my life need to hear right now.
Listen to This Episode for Solutions on Relationship Struggles
If you struggle with anything in your relationship or have unresolved issues from the past that keep coming up, you need to give this podcast episode a listen. Naomi shares her personal relationship struggles which led her and her partner to move to Italy to fulfill their lifelong dreams.
As a relationship coach, Naomi helps individuals find and reclaim their passion and purpose so they can focus on repairing, deepening, and reigniting their relationships.
In this episode you’ll learn:
How simple shifts in your mindset are extremely effective in changing your life.
The four human needs and how to find a way to meet them (good or bad).
How difficult moments can build trust and honesty in a relationship.
Why you don’t need to be in a relationship to work with a relationship coach.
What it takes to be in a marriage for 20, 30, or 40 years.
My three biggest takeaways from speaking with Naomi were:
- Trust is the foundation of a relationship. Trust allows you to open up and share difficult feelings, not feel shame from admitting you’re in the wrong. It also allows you to be able to grow and allow your partner to grow too.
- Our past experiences filter our current reality. It can take more questioning, pausing, and awareness to find out why certain triggers still come up years later.
- Anger simply means your needs aren’t being met in a positive way. We get defensive because we feel everything is about us, but anger can be a hurt your partner has from a trigger in the past. In the past, anger was complicated for me to understand, but her translation helped bring me the clarity to the emotion.
