I had the sweetest pleasure today of talking with a group of students at PCC Southeast campus Queer Resource Center during their Sexual Assault Awareness Month programming.
We spent a couple hours talking about healthy queer relationships, boundaries, and communication through stress.
It was a lot of fun.
Students asked great questions about long-term relationships, introverts/internal processors and extroverts/external processors, and issues for transgender folks in marriages. We covered shame, self-worth, and most of all how to show someone you really love them.
I mean it, I love talking about love. Especially with young people.
I walked them through a tool that can be transformative at any stage in a relationship. It's a simple but profound integrity check for your relationship.
Integrity-checking is important because it brings back alignment between what we say we want and how we get there. All too often distance grows between us when we start moving away from our core.
Most couples get out of alignment after they've been together a while. With just a little self-awareness and personal accountability you can be back on track for better connection.
This super simple tool will help you identify if you need an adjustment and action steps to bring you back to center.
