Maybe you've been here before in your relationship, where you finally have had enough of your partners behavior, abuse, neglect and careless treatment, and you tell him it's not going to work for you anymore. He then promises to change, or even says he'll go to counselling. But how can you know this time is any different than all those other times he promised to change? In this episode I share some key indicators of change, and how you can know if he's truly remorseful and motivated to do the work, or if this is just another case of empty words and broken promises.
