Relationships have a life of their own that grow and mature with time. Being in a relationship doesn’t mean that people don’t change and grow as well. When one of you becomes super motivated and ambitious over health or career goals, naturally you may want to push your other half along the same journey with you. But is that the right approach? In this episode, Tom and Lisa talk about living a synchronized life that prioritizes the shared experience of the relationship over individual ambition, and how to better encourage behaviors you want from your partner, not force or pressure.
