It can be a challenge to find the right balance that make accountability partnerships work.
I have some friends that find that reminders from others cause them to rebel and not want to do what they had previously said they wanted.
Others of us find expectations of some to sometimes be too heavy and we find ourselves living up to these expectations, but disappointing ourselves in other ways.
That perfect balance between encouragement and expectations makes for great partners as well as having similar goals and expectations. Great communication and no shaming.
Recently I relearned that it’s difficult to find a great accountability partner and this has made me so appreciative of the ones that I do have.
