  • Chaos takes us out of peace and into a place of conflict and stress.

  • The importance of gaining insight into your issue before bringing it to your partner.

  • How using a gentle start-up can set the conversation up well.

  • Couple’s therapy can bring an objective third party to guide a dialogue and bring tools to help solve something a couple can’t solve themselves.


  • Having trusted advisors in your life that can help bring awareness to your part of the conflict that you may not initially see on your own.


  • “Acknowledgment and change silences criticism.”


  • Timing is key when talking about an issue with your significant other.


  • Be mindful that your partner has a deep longing underneath their complaint.
