Welcome back to another Soul Driven Podcast interview – oh wait, this isn’t an interview, haha! After a guest canceled last minute, I decided to do something that I haven’t before – host a personal discussion. And who better than with my partner? And what is more relevant than the Pandemic? Like every couple, it’s been a bumpy ride, but because of the unique way we manage our relationship, this isn’t your usual discussion.
This week, you’ll meet my partner of four years, Carlos Fonseca-Rodriguez as we share our personal takes on the good, bad, and ugly of what we’ve been experiencing since lockdown went into effect. We’ll talk about what elements in our relationship made it easier and harder, and we don’t hold back. This is an honest (and fun) discussion from two people who are doing the work and it’s sure to make an impact.
Single? Well, when I was single, these were the types of discussions I wanted to hear so that I could execute them at some point in the future. There’s something here for everyone.
In this episode, we discuss:
- How Carlos and Ahna navigate the pandemic as a couple
- Which elements of their relationship made the lockdown easier and harder
- What they learned about each other during the pandemic
- Relationship success and failure during the pandemic
- Changes they would make if a lockdown happens again
- Their thoughts about couple’s therapy
