Finding love is hard. That’s no secret — so when we finally do find it, it’s only natural to want to work hard to keep it by going “all in” on that relationship. Dedication and commitment are both important in any partnership, of course, but we also have to remember to do what we can to keep our own identity intact. Without an ability to be self-reliant, codependency starts to form, which is a one-way street to resentment.
During Part 2 of my conversation with the great, Lori Gottlieb, we discuss the danger of relying too heavily on your partner to make you happy. We also walk through the red flags Lori says to look for in a potential partner, how we can all improve our communication and trust we have in our relationships, and so much more.
Lori’s insight always gets me thinking, and I think the principles she lays out during this episode can help people who are already in relationships, those who are looking for one, and everyone in between. And now, please help me welcome back the one-and-only Lori Gottlieb for Part 2 of her interview on The School of Greatness!

I always love learning new and fresh perspectives on all topics, and Lori never disappoints when it comes to teaching me about relationships, dating, and self love. If you’re ready to learn about the relationship red flags you should look out for, how to avoid codependency, how to take your communication to the next level, and more, then this episode is for you. I hope you’ll join me on Episode 1,191 of The School of Greatness!
