43 - So, What's the Catch? Bringing Hidden Expectations to Light

Maybe you thought you were serving someone, expecting nothing in return. No strings attached. But what happens when the recipient of your goodness doesn’t treat you the way you thought they would?

Do you feel like because you had been serving them and treating them a certain way - they should act a certain way in return? This is called “giving to get” or “score keeping.” These hidden expectations may not even register on our awareness, but they will flare up eventually.

Hidden expectations are common, but they really aren’t fair. It’s not fair to you and it’s not fair to the person you’ve been serving. Today, listen in to Leanne and learn how to discover and communicate your expectations to your friends and family. And better yet, learn how to meet your own needs and drop some of the expectations you have for the people in your life.
