Getting Personal: Following Up with Chelsea and Jon

In August of last year, we talked to an amazing couple — Chelsea and Jon. Last time we listened in, they shared their struggles with addiction, an affair, career differences, arguments, and dealing with the loss of a loved one. They were real, raw, vulnerable, and deep with their story — and today, we revisit some of these topics once again and ask how they’ve been doing since the last time we talked. If you have not already heard the first part of their story, we highly recommend you listen to our first episode with them before tuning into this one.

There are so many practical, useful tips from all of the new practices Chelsea and Jon have put into play since the last time we spoke, and we’re sure you’ll be able to take something away from this episode and apply it to your own life. They discuss their newfound radical transparency, how they’ve been dealing with their triggers, and how they’re managing and moving on from arguments, as well as how they’ve been keeping their communication open and spending more quality time together.

Once again, we really applaud Chelsea and Jon for joining us in this episode and being so willing to openly and honestly share their story!
