Relationships don’t have to be hard. The effort you continue to put into your relationships might be going into the most inefficient places. You might be sabotaging your relationships because you just don’t know better. For instance, are you making demands or requests of others in your relationships? Are you requiring certain things from others that you’re not doing yourself? How are you disregarding the opinions and beliefs of the other person in the relationship? If you’re placing expectations onto another person, you’re purposely looking for reasons to sabotage the relationship. The only thing you can expect from expectations is disappointment, letdown, bitterness and resentment.
