One of the most difficult and excruciating parts of relationships are breakups and the events leading up to them. Yet they can be avoided simply by recognizing early warning signs. But why do we ignore them so readily?

In this episode we’ll show you what it looks like when someone is starting to withdraw from you, as well as the twisted truth about what really happens when we or they pull back.

When others withdraw from you, it can make you feel a sense of “forced neediness,” which isn’t healthy for either partner. We’ll also look at why real communication fails through text and why being “unavailable” is a myth. Finally, but no less important, we’ll explain why expecting others to “get the hint” is a disaster when it comes to rejection.

When we learn healthy boundaries and own the ability to risk the relationship for what we stand for, we can say goodbye in a healthy way, rather than of holding on to someone who is toxic for us or not all in.

This is Part I of a II part episode.
