I really wish it were, but healthy relationships require commitment, risk, trust, responsibility, and a shared dream or goal.  Love is an important ingredient, but it's not the whole recipe.  Learn more about The Love Drive Website https://thelovedrive.com/ Instagram https://www.instagram.com/thelovedrive Newsletter https://thelovedrive.com/newsletter
While all your needs are valid, some of those needs can’t - or won’t - be met by others (no matter how much you want them to or try).  If your need is tied to your self-esteem, your self-worth, your value, or your love for yourself as a person, it’s going to be nearly impossible for others to meet those needs. They might try and fail because no amount of them trying will meet the need for self-love.
In this episode, Kat Harris, relationship coach and author of Sexless in the City, discusses how to deal with life plans that continue changing and the sadness that comes from living a life that’s different than what you expected.  Kat and Shaun talk about grieving your dreams, how to be honest with yourself, and the importance of keeping your expectations in check.    What you'll learn (or why you should care):   How to overcome being a victim to your relationship status How to accept that a relationship might end How not getting what you want can open up new possibilities   Resources: Peggy Orenstein's book Girls and Sex  Listen to her podcast episodes on fertility.   Where to find Kat: Kat’s website Get her book, Sexless in the City.
