This episode is about self-acceptance. Today’s caller, Jessica, is longing for a relationship but doubting it will ever happen. She is having a hard time accepting herself and her current relationship status. This is a great call to listen to no matter what your relationship status because so much of what we talk about is about self-acceptance and self-compassion.

As children, we believe our parents are supposed to love us unconditionally. When one or more parent isn’t there, it messes with our minds and consequently our dating.

Single ladies, if you have had a series of unfulfilling relationships or bad experiences dating, it can lead to some nasty beliefs. Sometimes we make up stories about why we are not in fulfilling relationships such as there aren’t any available men. Our external reality is often a mirror of our internal experience.

There is the caveat in that the places we are looking for partners may not be right. When we make blanket statements about all men are a certain way or we say ‘I’m not in a relationship because of x, y, z,’ we blame our situation on something external. We need to have a reality check and ask ourselves ‘why is this my situation?’

It’s important to have compassion for yourself. Instead of constantly trying to solve the problem and fix yourself, understand what the core issue is and have massive compassion for yourself. Let the timelines and age pressure go because it does not help. There is nothing good that comes from that. It’s just part of the messed up way we relate to age in our culture. Be grateful you have more wisdom.

There is no reason you can’t have what you want but getting what you want is often postponed until you get to a place internally where you don’t need it to be worthy, safe, or loved.
