Intimate Relationships

“It is unreasonable and unhealthy to expect one person to be the source for meeting all our needs.” – The Language of Letting Go 

Can you imagine having to meet every single need of someone else? If you’ve raised kids, you don’t have to imagine, you’ve been there and done that. But when it comes to intimate relationships, being with someone (or being that someone) who has frequent expectations & demands is exhausting – in fact, it’s the quickest way to sap all the romance out of a coupleship. Healthy relationships exist when each person gives what they can and is grateful for what the other can give. By taking steps to lower my expectations, practice acceptance and stop making unreasonable demands on my wife, I fall deeper and deeper in love with my her. And the more I love my wife, the more ILML! :-)
