EPISODE 4: WHY RELATIONSHIPS KEEP LETTING US DOWN

In this session we’re going to explore why relationships keep letting us down.

So what is it about relationships that leaves us feeling annoyed, frustrated, lonely, heartbroken…and the list goes on.  Most people will quickly jump to ..it’s what the other person is doing, or saying or not doing or not saying…  But notice how all of that resides outside of you and your control. 

When we set up our relationships this way, we’re placing ourselves in a victim role, powerless to change our circumstances because we’re never really in control of what another person thinks, or does or says….so it’s all happening to us and we stay stuck in being at the effect of everything that’s going on outside of ourselves.  In this model we’re totally reliant on what someone else thinks, does or says.  We are essentially placing our emotional wellbeing in the hands of another.
