In today’s episode, I got to talk with Rachel about all things relationships & communication, and boy did she bring the FIRE. She’s been referred to as someone “bridging the gap between a self-help book and a therapist's couch,” is refreshingly funny, charismatic and she adds SO MUCH valuable information to this episode.

“Be kind to yourself. No matter where you are, no matter who you’re with. Whether you wanted to be with someone else or you love who you’re with… no matter what is going on, be kind to yourself.”

“We can reach our goals & it’s okay for those goals to change.”

“We avoid conversations with our partners about really important things because we are so afraid we are going to crash our relationship.”

“Every time you try to win a fight in your relationship, your relationship is losing.”

“The shoulding on ourselves that we do on a daily basis, is one of the worst things that we can do for ourselves.”

“It is so amazing, to realize that we get to continually learn about our partners, and that’s a gift!”

“There is no such thing as perfect, there is just now.”

“At the end of the day, you are modeling how you want people to treat you by how you treat you.”
