How Do Expectations Affect Your Relationship?
“If we took time in the beginning to get clarity on the expectations of ourselves, our partner, and the relationship itself, and communicated it, it would save us a lot of conflict and heartache in the long run.” – Anne Hellgren
This episode is taken from a new and exciting podcast series I created with 4 other coaches called “Relationship Secrets Unlocked.” Join Julie Fitzpatrick, Claire Auchmuty, Ksenia Droben, Gazala Saleem, and me as we discuss how collective and individual expectations affect our relationships!
The word “expectations” can elicit a lot of emotions and reactions, and I have seen this to be true with the backlash I have previously received on social media when using it.
A much-contested and very interesting topic when debated from the perspective of 5 women from different cultural, racial, and religious backgrounds!
We explore whether we should have expectations in a relationship from our partners and our own roles in the relationship and how they are formed by our own cultures, religion, values, upbrings and so on. And what happens when we don’t communicate these expectations from the beginning of the relationship?
What also happens when our expectations vary vastly from those of our partner? How do we navigate this- if we can at all.
Be ready for an episode that keeps it real and be warned that it may ruffle some feathers as there are some unexpected and/or shocking views shared!
“Relationship Secrets Unlocked” is a uniquely enriching podcast series that presents a holistic view of relationships from an international and culturally diverse perspective. With an expert panel of five relationship coaches hailing from diverse cultural, religious, and professional backgrounds, the series aims to educate listeners about the complexities of human relationships and how to navigate them effectively.
