Prioritize Your Relationship

We did it! We did a year’s worth of podcasts. Thank you for listening.

The start of a new year often brings reflections about the past and goals for the future. In this week’s episode, we discussed setting goals for relationships.

Tony told listeners–once again–to run if they see something early on in their relationship that rubs them the wrong way.

Meanwhile, Jill said that if you’re looking to start a new relationship in 2020, leave your house. Your mate is out there somewhere.

For those who are already in a relationship, she urged you to look for ways to grow together.

Both Jill and Tony have more advice:

  • Make your goals actions that you can control.
  • Remember that we can’t control what others do or think.
  • When your goal is met, set a new one to become your best self

What relationship goals do you have for 2020? Leave your responses in the comments section.

Also, we still want you to submit topics for us to discuss. You can do so by either sending us an audio file or by simply putting it in the comments section.

Thanks again for your support.

Acts of Kindness in Relationships

In this week’s episode, Tony and Jill discussed whether you should avoid debates or full-blown arguments on your partner’s birthday, or any other special occasions.

Tony told listeners that if their partner feels compelled to be nicer to them on a birthday or holiday, then they should consider how their partner treats them overall.

Meanwhile, Jill advised listeners to accept that their partner may not be thankful for the extra nice treatment.

Both Jill and Tony have advice:

  • If you are into birthdays and your partner isn’t, consider what would make them feel appreciated that date
  • Don’t be afraid to tell your partner what makes you happy
  • Respect and love each other daily

Destined to Meet and Connect

In this week’s episode, Jill and Tony discussed whether people have more than one soulmate in a lifetime. The definition of soulmate can vary, they said, but they believe you can have more than one.

Tony told listeners to avoid forcing someone to be their soulmate.

Meanwhile, Jill told listeners to assess how much they are connected to another person to determine whether they are a soulmate.

Both agree on the following advice:

  • Do not be quick to label a person as a soulmate, boyfriend, girlfriend, etc. Give the relationship time.
  • If the other person does not define you as a soulmate, understand that everyone has different interpretations of what a soulmate is. They may love you just as much as you love them, but they may defy labels.
  • If you lose the person you viewed as a soulmate, take the time to mourn that loss. Be open to love again.

Is a Grudge the Same as Not Forgetting?

In this week’s episode, Jill and Tony discussed whether forgiving and truly forgetting is achievable.

Tony encouraged listeners to forgive and forget, but he also said that there are some situations that you should remember, so that you don’t get burned the next time.

Meanwhile, Jill told listeners who don’t have a good memory to work on improving it because it will help with future relationships.

They both have the following advice for all listeners:

  • Do not hold grudges. They hurt you.
  • Understand that forgiveness is intended to help you.
  • If you find that you can neither forgive nor forget what someone has done to you, find the courage to leave the relationship because the situation will become a wall between the two of you.

Have you ever been able to forgive and forget? If so, how did you do it? Leave your answers in the comments section.

Also, leave a question that you’d like to see us address. We prefer that you send us an audio file, limited to 90 seconds, of your asking the question, but we will also accept written questions. We will select ones to share with our entire audience starting in Season 2, which begins in January 2020.

All Things in Moderation

In this week’s episode, we discussed what Tony would do if there were two of Jill.

He loves Jill, of course, but he made it clear that he could handle only one of her.

As a tip, he told listeners to fully evaluate their mate, as well as the people their partner hangs with.

Meanwhile, Jill advised listeners to realize that the person they like or love is often part of a package deal, meaning they come with others.

Once again this week, the two worked on suggestions together:

  • Cherish what you love about your partner
  • Do not try to change personalities; talk about why behaviors need to change, but remember why you fell in love in the first place
  • Accept the things you cannot change

What would you do if there two of your partner? Leave your answers in the comments section.

Be who you Are

In this week’s episode, Jill lovingly called Tony a nerd or a geek.

He denied it.

Jill told listeners that his denials do not matter because few of us can change someone’s perception of us.

Meanwhile, Tony also advised listeners to embrace who they are.

This week, the two worked on their tips together:

  • Determine what you want to be known for and act accordingly
  • Understand that you can’t change whether people will label you or not, but you can control how much attention you give it
  • Don’t focus on things and views you cannot control
