Open-up: Take the risk to reveal your tender places. Be vulnerable.
Validate: You may not agree, but you can search for what makes sense from your partner’s point of view.
Evolve: Invest in your own growth, development and self-care. When we feel good about ourselves we are better partners.
Sift 2 heaping cups of deep listening into a bowl, add ¾ cup of vulnerability and mix thoroughly. To this mixture sprinkle liberally with validation that has been mashed together with tenderness. Fold in validation using a gentle whisking motion. Transfer to baking dish. Bake in oven set to E (for evolution). Add additional ingredients as needed and stir gently at regular intervals. Taste for sweetness. Enjoy! Repeat.
