Forgiveness, Finding Real Love & Setting Expectations

Stop setting expectations for your relationships.

Why should we stop setting expectations in relationships? Isn’t it important to be clear on what kind of person you want to be with and how you want that relationship to go?

While there is nothing wrong or harmful with setting relationship goals alongside your partner, setting expectations is a different game altogether. Most of the time, expectations stay inside our own heads and aren’t voiced. We may have certain expectations of how our partner should behave, but we don’t always communicate those desires.

Plus, expectations put immense pressure on a relationship — even before it starts! You may have a picture in your head of finding that perfect person who checks all the boxes for you, but as it turns out, the person you thought would be good for you actually isn’t.

If you want to find true love, you have to let go of your relationship expectations. Of course, you should have standards, but don’t limit yourself when it comes to love. Be open and ready to find true connection.

Today’s guest, Stephan Speaks, is a relationship expert, and in this episode, he’s going to help you let go of your relationship expectations and find real love!
