“I think, whether you’re going to work or you’re coming into a relationship, number one is a sense of self. So, you have to know who you are. Your likes, your dislikes. A sense of work. Both, obviously, going to work. That’s important, and your work ethic is important. But knowing that a relationship is work. It’s not a fairy tale. It gets better the more time and effort you put into it.”

Greg Zehner

“But always being mindful of what you learn about yourself. What you like, what you don’t like, how you show up. You know, and always seeing the context of a relationship as a, as a, as a context for personal growth.”

Jacki Zehner

”I think a lot of it boils down to communication and understanding what each other’s touchpoints are. Understanding, as you grow in relationships, you also understand what baggage each other brings to the relationship, and the past, and your upbringing, and how certain things in the way you were parented affect the way you are and the community you grew up in, and how that affects your beliefs and the way you react to situations. I think there was a big feeling-out process as well.”
