This is about knowing your partner’s world. It is difficult to really love someone that you don’t know. You might read this list and think, of course I know these things about my partner. That is great. But know that love maps change over time. When you have been together for a number of years, couples can become complacent and uninterested in one another, drifting apart. Staying connected by discussing meaningful things creates connection.
It is easy to get caught up in the day to day routine of raising kids,
Good luck on your healing journey, Jen
