I’m asked all the time what I think the biggest things people do wrong in relationships are. I often don’t like limiting people to a wrong and a right as we are all different and so are our relationships. But there is one thing I have come across that can be damaging… expectations.
It doesn’t mean we shouldn’t expect certain things of our partner, but often this idea of expectations goes too far and people are left looking at their relationship against a comparison of false reality. They might also have an expectation that they have no idea where it first came from or even what purpose it serves.
