Announcer: The following minute is brought to you by Relationship Excellence dot com.
Owen Williams: Welcome to The Relationship Minute. My name is Owen Williams.
Owen Williams: Despite our outward appearances most of us are held together with duct tape and chewing gum. We're quite fragile in the bigger picture of life. And that's OK. I think that's part of being human.
Owen Williams: Where are your defenses getting in the way of you creating the kind of relationship that really works for you? We all have defenses. Personas, images, things that prop us up to be who we want to present to others in the world. And yet in personal relationships we long to be known, to be understood, to be accepted and to be celebrated.
Owen Williams: Where could you drop your defenses so that you could connect more deeply in relationships? Thank you for taking The Relationship Minute and remember, it's later than you think.
