22: Break the Cycle of Chaos and Take Control of Your Life

Do you see your life and relationships to be in constant chaos and drama? You often wonder, is it just bad luck or am I intentionally setting myself up for stress?

In this episode of Marriage on Fire, Jon joins me as we paint a picture of a truly chaotic day in our family life. Hear how chaos starts, how it escalates, and how you can react to it in a more productive way.  Jon and I also unravel how your core values or moral compass determine your success. You want to not just survive, but thrive, in stressful situations.

In this episode, you’ll discover:

  • How simple situations turn into chaos
  • How your core values determine the success of your marriage
  • Why people fight and argue
  • Why agreeing is not always the best option
  • The actions you can take if you’re stuck in chaos
  • How to determine if you have the ‘right fighter’ syndrome

Tired of all the drama?  Jon and I reveal how you can get off the roller coaster ride of your life. But the question is – do you really want to get off? Can you take charge of your life and break free from concepts and habits that put you in chaos in the first place?



“People fight and argue to be agreed with.” – Amy

“If you guys have two different moral accomplices, that’s going to be an automatic recipe for disaster.” – Jon

 “I think hearing each other and agreeing are two different things. You can feel heard and be heard and still be okay in your marriage, even if you don’t agree.” – Amy

That’s all for this week’s episode.  Make sure to reach out to me on IG @theamywine and let me know what you thought of today’s show.  I will see you all here next week!
