“Being able to articulate our internal world and share it with someone else is essential.”

How Well Communicated Conflict Builds Strong Relationships with Jayson Gaddis

There’s no escape – CONFLICT is a part of life! Especially in high stakes relationships, there’s this idea that because there is mutual love, discord won’t arise. Author, relationship expert, father, and husband Jayson Gaddis joins us and shares why there is no summit to relationships – they constantly grow and adversity is part of that. We also cover the hidden cost of containing every emotion, what to do when we feel shut down, and why getting back to our zero point is instrumental to peace. Listen in and learn how to show up more AUTHENTICALLY!
