2:18 When we are putting this towards the view of relationships, our choices that we make in the beginning are so important. The conversations that we’re having are so important. Listening to what our partners are saying is so important, especially when things go sour and they don’t work out and you look back and you think, hmm, what did they tell me? What did I ignore? How did I continue showing up? How is this person showing up for me? And this goes for all relationships – Drea Renee
