In Western Culture, we have been bombarded with the romantic notion that life is supposed to have a fairy tale ending. Men and women alike, many of us are waiting for everything to fall into place so we can live happily ever after. We have bought into in the idea that something or someone outside of ourselves will fill us up and make us complete.

We think that if we can obtain enough wealth, the right relationship, the right trappings, we will be complete. And even when we are able to obtain these material riches, we often fail to feel fulfilled. We have expectations of what will make us whole, yet the feeling we seek continually eludes us.

In this podcast, we delve into the idea that there comes a time when we simply must take responsibility for the lives we live. We see that we cannot continue to ask others to give of themselves in ways that are at their mental, physical or emotional expense. And we learn that if we find ourselves expecting another person to be or do things that is not true to them, simply so that we can feel whole, then we must reevaluate our own values.

And we come to the conclusion that if we continue to hold fast to old behaviors and outdated models of how life is supposed to work, and we continue to ask others to fulfill our desires simply because of our own expectations, then we’re pretty much guaranteeing ourselves happily never after.
