Sacrifices for your Partner’s Career – Sharmon Reddington

In this episode, we chat with our very special returning guest, counsellor, and owner of Mumwell, Sharmon Reddington, delving into the topic of making sacrifices for your partner’s career, and exploring its nuances in today’s context.

Sharmon defines sacrifices within the context of prioritizing your partner’s career and we discuss why sacrifice isn’t always negative. We explore the concept of pro-sociality, weighing the benefits and costs associated with making sacrifices for the well-being of your relationship.

We also talk about sacrifices and default parenting, addressing how to prevent resentment from building up when one partner takes on more parenting responsibilities. 

If you are a people-pleaser or struggle to establish healthy boundaries and prioritize your own well-being while still being a supportive partner, then this episode is a must-listen!

Uncover the complexities of sacrifices within relationships and find a balance that promotes both personal fulfillment and a thriving partnership.
