One person can’t be an individual’s sole source of joy, pleasure, excitement, comfort, reassurance, friendship, or love. That’s why we have family. Friends. Colleagues. When we put too much pressure on another person to be our everything, we not only push them away, but we set them up for failure, and ourselves for disappointment.
