      💖Day 2 of relationship advice with our relationship specialists💖

      Today we are hearing from Michelle Ruelke, AASDA and Relationship Specialist trained in Gottman level 1 and 2! She says,

      “Practice the pause. Before you speak or act, ask yourself if what you’re about to do or say is going to help or hurt your relationship. It takes 5 positive interactions to make up for one negative interaction. Therefore, you want to express your feelings and wants/needs without criticizing your partner and creating a negative interaction.“
