#026: We All Just Want to be Loved

We all just want to be loved…but we struggle as we get in our own way. In this episode, Mel navigates the nuances and complexities of relationships as he highlights the pitfalls that block us from loving intimacy.

Our tendency to personalize each other’s struggles subverts our ability to recognize that we all bring insecurities, doubts and wounds into our relationships. These challenges impact us, but may not be about us, or due to us.

Recognizing this enables us to act more kindly and more compassionately, which could, in turn, ignite more loving behavior.
