While relationships are exciting and fulfilling, they also bring up our deepest fears and desires, in challenging and uncomfortable ways.
When you add to this going through divorce (or break-up), or the death of a partner, relationship challenges reach a whole new level.
How do you open your heart again when it can seem so unsafe?
What do you do with the grief, fear and pain you inevitably bring into a new relationship?
In today’s Man Alive podcast episode relationship coaches Chris Balthasar and Lisa Nicks Balthasar share about how they found each other after experiencing their own profound losses. They managed to stay open to love, though they admit at times it was bumpy and their faith and hope were challenged.
In this conversation we discussed…
- How to open your heart to love after loss (divorce, death, etc.)
- The necessity of appreciation to keep a relationship alive and intimate
- How to expand beyond what your ego thinks it wants in a partner
- The # 1 sex organ in your body
- How to tap into your heart’s intelligence, in addition to your mind’s intelligence
I highly suggest this episode if you’ve struggled to believe you can love again, or if you want to learn more about how to keep a relationship alive in the long-term.
May you remember that love is always possible, even when it doesn’t seem like it.
Even men at the top of their game find themselves wanting more from life. Man Alive is the resource for men who want more meaning, a bigger impact, unshakable confidence, a hotter sex life, more money, deeper love, solid friendships or a powerful legacy.
