Prioritizing a Partner is NOT Hierarchy

Prioritizing a Partner is NOT Hierarchy

The inherent assumption is that the status of “highest priority” in hierarchical relationships will remain permanently and never ever waver, which is, for most, unrealistic. And in practice is quite a powerful and sometimes inaccurate assumption. It can also feed harmful behaviours (VETO is an example) and ways of thinking of someone else as intrinsically LESS. Which is personally why I don’t practice hierarchy.

Testimonial

I left a monogamous marriage of 21 years to enter a polyamorous throuple. Over a 3-year time span of traumatic events, feelings of unworthiness, doubt, and toxic behaviour, I was in way over my head. Searching for answers I stumbled across Leanne and Greg’s podcast “Empowered Poly” on YouTube; a blessing in disguise. I needed direction and guidance. I needed saving as I was drowning in heartache and regret. I reached out to Leanne, and she agreed to mentor me. When I tell you she literally saved my life, I mean it. She listened without judgment and more importantly she empowered me to find myself again; my dignity and my worth. She guided me in the right direction. Leanne is empathetic and understanding. She is a wealth of knowledge and compassion. She gave me my power back, my fire. I’ll forever be grateful to Leanne for enabling me to take control… control over my happiness, my peace and my life.
