Learn To Love Smarter.
Have you ever thought about the irony of the way we ‘do’ relationships? Relationships are really important parts of our lives, yet we never spend time learning how to do them well.
- 11 000-ish hours of classroom specific time to get a high school diploma.
- 4-years for a BA, 4-years for a graduate degree, an extra 4-7 years of med school for doctors.
- Pilots have a minimum of 1500 hours of training before they are really eligible to be hired by an airline.
Even an Apple Genius gets 2 weeks of specific ‘customer relations’ type training on top of their previous IT training…
“Working with Heather has had a huge impact on our relationship! We learned so much, but mostly about our communication and understanding.
Being in a relationship for 5+ years makes you think you have a pretty good understanding of a person, but we often found ourselves in a tangle of miscommunication, misinterpretations, and hurt feelings from not really being heard.
Heather has provided us tools on how to reconnect, redevelop trust, and how to really listen to each other. It is always a process, but having Heather in our corner for support and guidance is the best tool of all!”
How did you learn to do one of the most important things that can have the biggest and most profound impact in your life?
By trial-and-error? Osmosis? Watching TV and movies? Soap operas?
Most of us learned by watching the people around us interact – our parents, older siblings, other family members. The question is: how qualified were they to be mentors for effective relationship building?
For the majority of us (although the people we looked up to were doing their absolute best), most of them were also just bumping around in the dark, trying to figure it out as they went, and hoping for the best.
“It’s the quality of our relationships that will ultimately determine the quality of our lives.”
~ Esther Perel
Here’s the thing, there is a better way. If relationships are an integral part of our lives, then isn’t it time to put some effort into learning how to do them well?
Whether you’re still madly in love and want to keep it that way or some of the shine has worn off and you want to figure out how to get things back to good, relationship coaching WILL make a difference in your relationship. Studies show that couples wait an average of 6 years longer than they should before they seek support – don’t be a statistic.
Ready to breathe some new life into your relationship? It’ll be easier than you think.
