036. Is Your Relationship Still Worth It?


If you've been in a long-term relationship, a relationship with a parent, a sibling, or a friend, every relationship gets to that point where you have to ask yourself, “is it worth it anymore?"

It can be so hard to think about and question if your relationship is worth fighting for, or injecting more energy into? And is there really any more you can get out of it?

We meet people for a reason, a season or a lifetime, and yet somehow, when it comes to making that decision, it’s the most difficult one to answer.

As you know if you’ve been around for a while, Yannick and I are closing in on 35 years together. And I would be lying if I said we’ve never had the talk about ‘if this is still worth it’.

In this episode we talk about how to dig deep and ask each other the really hard questions. When it feels like a failed ending, there can be a tremendous amount of guilt. You may know exactly what you want, and yet can’t seem to make the very hard choices you know you need to.
