368: Choose Her Everyday (or Leave her), How Men are Setup to Fail in Relationships and the Masculine Objection with Bryan Reeves
The truth is, if we’re crushing it at work but not doing the same at home with our spouse/partner, eventually, it’ll catch up with you, and everything (and everyone) suffers the consequences.
Men have been taught that showing vulnerability in relationships is a sign of weakness. So we build walls to shield ourselves from the hurt and pain that can come with opening up to our partner. And when those walls come crashing down, we’re often confused about how to handle the situation.
On the flip side, men who acknowledge their vulnerability can foster a deep sense of connection and intimacy with their spouse. That’s why I’m pumped to have Bryan Reeves on the show today.
Bryan is an author and relationship coach who helps men, women, and couples create thriving lives and intimate relationships. His Men, This Way blog has been read by over 30 million people worldwide, and his work has been featured in The Good Men Project, Buzzfeed, Allure, Medium, Playboy, and others.
In this conversation, we dig into Bryan’s tools for communicating clearly and with love and respect for your partner and the importance of establishing boundaries as early as possible.
Bryan also shares three principles for showing up at your best in your relationship and the transformational power of intentionally choosing your partner every day instead of leaving your relationship on auto-pilot.
