As a young professional, it may be difficult to prioritize your personal relationships. So much of your time and energy is already being invested in your career and it may be difficult to balance all of the demands at work without neglecting the people who are the most important to you. In today’s episode of Sharpen, we are joined by marriage and family therapist, Jill Woolworth.
Jill is a fountain of wisdom on the topic of relationships and very openly shares with us what she has learned as a wife of over forty years and as a therapist who has sat with countless clients struggling with their relationships. She believes the essence of her career is being an “untangler of relationship knots”. Today, she helps us to understand how to create balance between ambition and relationships. This is a powerful episode for those who may struggle with having to “balance it all”.
What does “relationship health” mean? Why should we talk about it?
What practical wisdom do you have for young professionals who are starting their careers and families?
How to balance “pouring out” to others and being “poured into”.
How to allow yourself to be truly seen in an intimate relationship.
