Personal growth isn’t the end all be all. But it does make a massive difference if you want a thriving partnership over time…

QUESTION:
“My question is in relation to Podcast #34, Triggers.
I’ve heard you say in numerous podcasts what’s required to have growth oriented people – that it requires 100% commitment of “I’m in” to the path of personal development, and responsibility and interest in myself for this work to be effective. What do you do if a person is 50% in? What do you do if they’re interested in taking responsibility and owning themselves about half the time? The rest of the time is still blaming, dealing with upsets, resentment and disconnection. The latter is tremendously difficult for me and brings up a lot for me. I can continue to work with my end of it, but also notice 50% is not good enough for me. I want more. Do you come up to this a lot in your work and if so, what are your solutions to dealing with it?”
