SORT BY Relevancy
in Self Help
We don't get what we ask for, we get what we expect. Whatever we don't have is because of our own resistance to it. What have you been struggling to have that you keep thinking outside sources are keeping you from? Let's let go of the resistance and recognize that there is only one Source, and that source is within us. And let's check out expectations and the beliefs and worthiness that is attached to them. Call the number for coaching on this and any topic.
Today we are going to explore expectations? Do you have expectations for yourself? Or, are you only dealing with other people's expectations of you? What about your kids? Do they have their own expectations of themselves? Or, and they only attempting meet the expectations of everyone around them?
The topic today is, "The Expectations and demands of Thorns and Thistles." Why is this important, you might well ask? These things seem to result in a somewhat dark perspective of ourselves and our world. We will be looking at the kinds of things that come up which cause discomfort, pain, disappointment all of which usually result in feelings of loss in one way or another. And yet, perspective is a great word that describes where we can go to get relief.
I am choosing to relate to such things as problems, difficulties, stresses and strains as thorns and thistles. They hurt; they cause pain an inflammation not just at the point of friction, but all over ... so it seems. Where do these thorns and thistles come from? Where can we go for help, relief, and direction? There are many ways into these problems, difficulties, stresses and strains, but there is really only one way out. Let's find out how to deal with "The Expectations and Demans of thorns and Thistles."
This is a topic that we all have thought about over and over again. Our program last week covered many issues related to relationships and we want to continue the dialogue.
Is it good to have expectations or can they lead to disappointment and/or resentment? What does society teach about relationships? Is it time to change our perspective about relationships?
We will address these topics and most likely many more. We hope to again have special guest Summer Bacon on the program.

The expectations that we have on oursleves as mothers is large, we can all agree on that - but is it real? The media feeds us with images of how we should look, feel and live from a very young age. The images of motherhood are often unrealistic while the reality of motherhood is vastly under-represented. These expectations are reinforced every which way we turn, causing women to try to hide their reality and persisit on 'keeping it together'. As you transition into Parenthood, you transition into a stage of life that challanges and changes your identity, your values and your relationships. Not expecting these changes can greatly affect your life, often leaving women feeling they have underachieved, confused and even depressed - but it's in this vulnerability that we can truly connect - and create our new tribe.
Elly Taylor is a Physcologist who noticed that her story and many of her clients stories were not dissimilar, they were drowning in parenthood, feeling that something was wrong with themselves, their partner and their relationship. After studying the research available she discovered that there was a lot of research on the subject but it wasn’t translating into practical support in the community, so she wrote her book Becoming Us which has become a bench mark book on the subject. www.empoweringmotherhoodradio.com
My New Years resolution was all about Expectations. Who to put them on. Who to NEVER put them on. And what to put on myself. Tonight I want to really expound on when did holding people to thier word become almost extinct? What came first, the word "Loyal" or the person claiming to be it? The people that are truly what they claim and do as they say are the Last of the Mohicans. Tonight we will discuss.
Call into Let's Talk About It with Dyphia Blount & WGWIII tonight at 929.477.1281 or click the link to talk about stipulations & expectations within a relationship. Can you have unconditional love for someone with stipulations? Do you go into relationships with expectations or do you let nature take it's course? Can people have a healthy and loving sex life when stipulations are put on what they want in the bedroom? Can your expectations of a person cause you to eventually dislike them as a person when the standards were set to high to achieve? Should we allow people to be people and love them openly and freely without stipulations and/or expectations? This is a follow up show of "Does Game Recognize Game" and "Age Ain't Nothing But a Number." We hit on certain things on those two shows that point to us into the direction of unconditional love no matter the age and when a person has game, do you begin to expect certain things from them.
Do the inverse ways men and women approach relationships directly affect their respective expectations for their relationships? Meaning: in men looking for attractors in women they tend to find the things they are attracted to in their potential mate and focus on those things, and the attractors their mate does not already posses, men make accommodations for by accepting the women how she is. The flip side to that coin is that these accommodations often can lend to creeping to find those particular attributes they desire.
Women tend to see the detractors in their mate, and then create and hold on to expectations of what the women feel are the potentials for their man to "evolve" into(or live up to)...This can often lend to misery and nagging etc, as females are thus relegated to their fantasies of their mates "potentials". Thus we have women initiating divorce at a very high rate compared to men, and in most cases this will be due to their perpetual feelings of their respective expectations not being met…
