“Guess who doesn’t work for me? My husband. Everything he does to make my life easier is a gift, and I appreciate that gift. Entitlement and resentment will kill love faster than anything else.”
– Terri Cole
When you and your partner come together at the end of the work day what’s the first thing you do? Flip on the TV, check email, or hop on social media? Do you ever feel like your connection has become an afterthought?
What I’ve seen in more than 25 years as a psychotherapist is how very easy it can be to take our people for granted. Cultivating lasting love is a daily practice.
If you seek a deeper connection and more intimacy with your lover, this episode is for you.
