We attended the Relationship Lifeline during our first year of marriage when the problems we had during our pre-married years caught up with us. Bad habits and mind sets were deteriorating what was once a fun, loving partnership. If we wanted our relationship to continue, we knew something needed to change and we couldn’t do it on our own. At the the program we were lead through extensive exercises that allowed us to heal and grow as individuals, thus making us better participants in our relationship.
Four years later we are going strong, using the tools that we’ve learned from the program. Our relationship will never be perfect and there will be bumps on the road, but now the dips don’t seem so daunting. We remind each other of the different elements we learned that weekend and use the challenges we face to strengthen our relationship. When it was difficult for us to do that, the Konkins were there to help us get back on track. That’s the ultimate take-away from Lifeline – it doesn’t end when the weekend is complete!
We attended the program to fix our relationship, and came out of it with wonderful new ones too. Now we are part of a community of people who genuinely care and support one another to be better people. In a time when the world feels increasingly selfish and indifferent, this was an unexpected bonus from the Intensive.
We are grateful for the Konkins and the team at Relationship Lifeline for playing a key role in our new (& much happier) story!
