Kya Fool Hain Hum: Why We Always Make This Big Break up Mistake!
Podcast Editor: Deepthy Ramdas
Why do we do this to ourselves?
Why do we always end up falling for people whose behavior — just like Delhi’s air — keeps getting worse over time?
And why is it, that despite making dus hazaar promises to ourselves, we again end up becoming more clingy to our partners than the Kardashian sisters are to the limelight?
Doston, unfortunately, as much as we would like to blame our exes for everything, from our deepest emotional wounds to aaj ke lunch ka late delivery, we TOO NEED to look within and take some responsibility for our own faulty relationship patterns.
The result? After a good run initially, the new relationship too gets confronted with the same goddamn problems.
Which is why no matter how bakwaas it seems, it is important to recognise our own unhealthy relationship patterns and consciously work on them.
Now, unhealthy relationship patterns can be varied — from being so dependent on our partners that we can’t move a centimetre without them, to simply being unwilling to empathise with their concerns.
Or maybe even giving 100 % of ourselves to our partners, which is equally bad. Because guess what? The only thing it leaves YOU with is an ANDA, and what are you going to do with? Make an omelette?
So you never have to be a ‘fool’ ever again!
