8 Ways to Water Your Relationship Garden - TWR Podcast #89

7/11/2023
Relationships are a lot like gardens – they require consistent care and attention in order to thrive.

Just like that beautiful garden, it’s easy to see the beauty in someone else’s relationship and to want that thing for ourselves. This is where we might fall into the notion of the “grass being greener on the other side.” But the truth follows something more like what Neil Barringham said, “the grass is greener where you water it.” Whether you’re newly dating or have been together for years, there are steps you can take to cultivate a strong and healthy partnership. In this episode, Pye and Dr. Glen provide tips for how to keep your relationship grass wonderfully green.
