Kathleen joins me on this episode to speak frankly about her romantic experiences past and present, specifically her current polyamorous relationship with her wife and girlfriend. Most people grow up learning that monogamous relationships are the norm (either for religious or cultural reasons). In this conversation we discuss the potentially harmful tendencies that come from an environment that only allows for monogamy as well as ways to overcome shame and grow in trust, vulnerability, and honesty. We have the capability to love more than we think. It is unhealthy to see your partner as the fulfillment of all your needs. Sorry, Jerry Maguire. "You complete me" is still a terrible, codependent way to connect with someone.
