Our lives our busier than ever. It’s easy for one partner in the relationship to feel like they no longer are a priority to the other partner. Work, hobbies and technology are just a few things that can begin to take priority over a partner. Listen to today’s episode to navigate the emotions of not feeling like a priority in your relationship and learn how to proactively make your partner feel important.

In this episode we discuss relationship advice topics that include:

  • The importance of understanding that no one is a priority all of the time.
  • Exercises to remind your partner that they are important.
  • How to talk about feelings of unimportance and neglect.
  • Navigating priorities in relationships with blended families and family dynamics.
  • Communicating our feelings in a productive and positive way.
  • And much more!
