32. Celebrating Birthdays: 3 Lessons For Success
Play • 15 min

There are a lot of complexities for many people when it comes to birthdays, most of which don’t have anything to do with getting older. In this solo episode, Krista shares how she and Will approach birthdays as a couple and support each other in having meaningful celebrations. 

Childhood imprinting can deeply impact your birthday experience if those unconscious filters and perspectives go unchecked. You might not realize you’re carrying around disappointment from decades ago, but there are three key ways to discover and articulate what makes you feel loved on your birthday. 

Nothing sets a partner up for failure quite like the “guess what I want for my birthday” game, so by getting clear on what you want and asking for it, not only is there a better chance of getting your desires met, but also helping your partner play a role in that. And even if your birthday doesn’t look exactly how you imagined it, take the opportunity for growth and try to work on the narrative you create about it.
