Are you worried that your partner might not like you for who you truly are? And if you notice that you’ve been not entirely “you” in your relationship – how do you shift gears and create a context that supports more authenticity? Sometimes we discover something new about ourselves. Other times we knew all along that there were aspects that we’ve been hiding. Or we might act one way when we’re trying to attract our partner – only to then feel trapped into being that “super-enticing” version of ourselves…forever. In today’s episode, I show you exactly how to bridge the gap into truly being yourself – and how to invite your partner to be more authentic with you. In the end it will be a relief for both of you to be who you are – and to set yourself free from the shackles of society’s expectations!

Also, announcing that tickets are on sale for Relationship Alive…LIVE! featuring Terry Real. We’ll have a musical guest (Katie Matzell trio), and you’ll also have the chance to ask YOUR questions.
