You've been working hard to reconnect and change yourself. You're proud of your efforts. But your spouse just isn't buying. For whatever reason, your spouse just does not trust the changes -- or maybe doesn't even see the changes! Do you feel like you are hitting a brick wall? Like nothing you are doing is making a difference? Like your spouse has already judged you and won't allow themselves to see something different? In this episode, I will be discussing several reasons why your spouse isn't willing or able to see a change. Included are the times your spouse might acknowledge that there has been a change, but doesn't trust that the change will last. Does that describe your situation? If so, please listen. I also discuss how to shift this dynamic in your favor.
