215: Your Partner Will NOT Fulfill All Your Needs

It’s easy to look to our partner to make us happy and fulfill our needs. However, instead of looking on the outside, we often need to look within. Listen to today’s show to understand how to be in a healthy relationship with the understanding that our partner will not fulfill all of our needs.
In this episode, we discuss relationship advice topics that include:
  • Deconstructing the myth that our partner will fulfill all our needs
  • Using the hard times in a relationship and turning them into breakthrough moments rather than breakdowns or breakups
  • Circumstances where you could be looking toward your partner for fulfillment rather than within
  • Understanding codependent relationships and breaking away from this type of relating
  • The importance of regular relationship check ins
  • And much more!
