Communication and smart conflict resolution are extremely important in any relationship. You know this! Yet we all struggle with these things too often (at least Sarah and I do). This episode is a gold mine of valuable information for navigating communication and conflict resolution.

In this episode we discuss relationship advice topics that include:

  • Is honesty always the best policy?
  • The importance of making your partner feel that the conversation is important.
  • Arguing about silly things and how to resolve it.
  • Communication techniques for productive conflict resolution.
  • How to avoid blaming and criticizing language with your partner.
  • And much more!
