If you are in a relationship right now, have you noticed that things are a bit harder than usual?

Tolerance, patience, and moods are down, while irritability, irritation and annoyances are up.

And this makes perfect sense. Being with our partners 24/7 during the pandemic is hard. Not to mention all the life stressors contributing to your emotional state.

What has been under a flashlight of awareness is now under a floodlight of awareness. Anything that has been able to stay bubbling just under the surface for some time has likely now been bubbling up and over.

And if you are experiencing this, you are not alone.

In this week’s episode of Journey Forward with Joree Rose podcast (click here to listen), I interview Shaun Galanos. He is a love coach who imparts honest and straightforward relationship advice on his podcast (The Love Drive) and social media outlets by the same name.

(Btw, this was one of my favorite episodes I've recorded!)

His number one piece of relationship advice is to talk about the hard thing; he and I talk about tools and strategies in how to do that.

“Everything mentionable is manageable”

~ Fred Rogers

A big piece of my work is my story –I have Journeyed Forward, and I am a living example of the tools I teach, so I know that not only do the tools that I teach work, but that change and growth is possible. Happiness is attainable!
