Want to feel empowered? How about realizing that YOU have the power to create the relationship of your dreams and find your own happiness. Many of us look to our partners to make us happy in our relationships. Listen to today’s show to understand why that’s the wrong approach and how to switch that mindset.

In this episode, we discuss relationship advice topics that include:

  • Getting rid of the expectation that our partner will make us happy
  • Self reflection practices to understand your contribution to creating conflict
  • Realizing that relationship issues don’t always get solved
  • Using conflict for growth in your relationship
  • Developing positive characteristics in yourself
  • And much more!

As an author and public speaker with 40 years of experience in psychotherapy, Larry Shushansky has written a book called Independent Enough and is looking to share his theory with as many people as possible. Larry turns his theories on relationships into achievable day-to-day practices for his audiences through engaging, conversational-style presentations.
