Moving through control and codependency to get your needs met in a healthy way

Are you tired of feeling like your intimate relationships just aren't fulfilling? Do you find yourself getting resentful and angry at your partner because they don't seem as excited to see you or make as much effort as they used to? Well, you're not alone.

In today's episode, we're going to explore the topic of codependency and unrealistic expectations in relationships. We'll talk about the concept of control dramas and how they can push love away, leaving you feeling frustrated and unfulfilled.

We'll also be responding to a voicemail from a listener who's struggling with these issues and is afraid she's sabotaging her chance at finding true love and intimacy. By the end of the episode, you'll have a better understanding of how to identify your needs in a relationship and how to communicate them to your partner in a way that doesn't end in an emotional explosion.

So, grab a cup of tea, sit back, and join me as we explore the ins and outs of codependency and how to create healthy and fulfilling relationships.
