It's OK to Need
One of the results that I help my clients create for themselves is to fall in love with themselves, along with healing their hearts and finding someone better. And part of what I help coach my clients on is to date themselves and to get so solid in that relationship that it’s merely a bonus with their Mr. or Ms. Right shows up. This sense of independence is really important, but I also want to share with you that it doesn’t mean that you can’t need your partner, or need things of them in order to be in your ideal relationship.
This episode was inspired by a dear friend of mine who recently told me that she feels like her partner isn’t stepping up to the plate in the way that he once was. She has always been pretty low maintenance in their relationship, and now she’s afraid of needing more from him. But I’m here to tell you that it’s ok to need! It’s ok to have needs and to have certain expectations from our partners. In this episode, I give examples of the kind of needs I feel it’s ok to demonstrate, getting clear on why it’s important to you, and key tools to be sure you get your needs met.
If you aren’t clear on what your needs are, or why it’s important to you, or even if you are struggling with your relationship with you and healing your heart, I invite you to join my one-year group coaching program, Stop Wanting Him Back and Find Someone Better. Or, for a limited time, I am again offering my 60-video course, with the same title as this podcast and as my group coaching program. With this course, you get lifetime access to the videos, and if you purchase my course before March 1st, I will be hosting 3 live group calls the first week in April 2022.

PLEASE NOTE: Claire refers to her exes and the listener’s ex as a “he,” based on her own personal experience as a heterosexual female, but this work can be applied to ANYONE going through heartbreak.
