113. I am who I am

Diving deeper into a conversation that happened on episode 91. Marisol finds herself still caught between being ones own authentic self, and changing parts of who you are for the betterment of a relationship. This is further illustrated by Adams southern background to be agreeable and gracious, while Marisol is asking him to speak up more, with Marisol's Latin influence to be upfront and in your face while also noting that white southern American culture is asking her to tone it down, or when Adam is asking for feedback to be delivered more gently. Marisol struggles with the dualism between cultural upbringing and the reality of your current community in which you live as well as the more at home issue of working to change parts of your personality to better serve your personal relationships. Listen in to this messy conversation of culture, community, and care.

About the Podcast

Reading Aloud
Welcome to the Reading Aloud Podcast, a place where the creative, emotional and hilarious aspects of relationship communication are explored in real-time, by a real Married couple. Marisol and Adam are a married couple living in Asheville, North Carolina. Outside of the Podcast, Marisol is an entrepreneur, who owns SolReflection, a therapeutic image consulting firm (she's a style therapist) and Adam works for Dogwood Alliance, a environmental non-profit organization. After dating, marriage, and lots of travel, the couple went on a long fertility journey. That journey lead them to IVF, a tremulous pregnancy, post partum depression and an amazing life altering miracle kid, Neo (all while recording the ups & downs). These days Marisol and Adam are raising a toddler, navigating the surrogate process to add to their family, and starting the egg retrieval/IVF process again after a miscarriage. Tune in as the couple provides you insight into how they communicate, navigate and thrive through married life, parenting, being an adult, and living in the world today.
