A great relationship will not make you lose who you are, but instead highlight and support you as the person you want to become. This week, Lisa and Benjamin dive into why it’s so common for women to lose their identity while dating and in a relationship, and how our hormones and anxiety can lead us to jump in too fast. Benjamin shares a male perspective on what a guy really thinks when the intimacy happens before getting to really know a woman, and he and Lisa talk about how to notice codependent tendencies and process through them. Working with a coach is so helpful because it allows you to take your time and learn to keep your identity, to ultimately find the true Guardian of Your Soul.
