How necessary is it for both you and your partner to be in the same phase of life for the relationship to work? Selection definitely matters when it comes to choosing who you want to share your life with, and who you decide to share time and resources with matters as well. But, what happens when you have a growth mindset and clarity on the direction you want to take your life in, but the person you love and want to be with isn’t sure about their own path? Healthy, long term relationships don’t require you to agree on everything, and it doesn’t mean that you see eye to eye on everything either. Differences between you and your partner can make the relationship interesting, meaningful, exciting, and worth fighting for. However, mindset matters and may be more important than chemistry and your sex life together. Tom and Lisa discuss how and under what circumstances incompatible mindsets will break a relationship and when it’s worth the effort to stay together.
