Waiting for Your Partner to Change, Part 2

Updated: Jan 5

Waiting for Your Partner to Change, Part 2

In the past, I’ve had a few jobs I didn’t like.

I didn’t think the pay was fair.

I horrified people when I told them how much money I made.

I told them the pay was so crappy, my son almost qualified for free or reduced lunch at school!

Yet, I stayed.

And complained.

Surely, if people were sympathetic, it gave me hope that someday the boss would see the light and give me a raise.

I was stuck in the trap of wishful thinking.

And this happens a lot in dating too.

In fact, I bet you know a woman who stays in a relationship that’s well past its expiration date.

🤷🏻 🤷🏻 🤷🏻

Maybe this woman is you.

You’re dating someone who makes you sad. Or mad. Or frustrated.

You tell your friends all about it.

And they agree with you.

This person is a jerk.

They don’t deserve you.

And you get a lot of sympathy.

So you don’t make any moves. You stay and wait because surely this partner will see the light and come to their senses. The sympathy you’re getting is a sure sign that your partner needs to change.

Alas - you’re trapped in wishful thinking.

But you don’t know the real reason you’re staying.

And that’s where coaching comes in.

I shine the light on things that are currently hidden from you.

Why am I telling you this?

Because so many women are stuck in the wishful thinking trap.

Weeks, months, and years go by while they hold out hope that their partner will change.

And then one day they finally realize it’s never gonna happen.

And then they beat themselves up for staying too long.

⌛ ⌛ ⌛

Lots of regrets.
