Relationship Tip of the Week

Our relationship tip of the week this week is brought to you by an old quote Sophie found on her phone from several years ago that still deeply resonates with us. It is: “A lover doesn’t discourage your growth. A lover says: I see who you are today, I cannot wait to see who you become tomorrow.” When I hear this quote, I think: How can I encourage my partner? Start applying this in your relationship and you will see your partner become a better person because you’re pulling that out of them.
