1. The Myth of Happiness
Do you believe that relationships are supposed to make you happy?
I used to believe that my relationship was supposed to be my unending source of happiness.
As if my life was supposed to fall into place like the pieces of a puzzle. I carried this unrealistic expectation to many of my relationships.
I used to think that something was inherently “wrong” with me or the relationship when I didn’t feel high on love.
As time passed by, I noticed a pattern. Whenever I wasn’t feeling bliss in my relationship, I created drama. Yup, that’s right, I was an emotionally unavailable woman which caused me to look towards my partner to feel validated and love.
