This week on the You Are Radically Loved Session, Tessa Tovar and Rosie dive into chapter 9 of You are Radically Loved, You are Radically Engaged.
Time and again, fairy tales have conditioned young children that a happily ever after exists. Thus, growing up, we create an idealized version of our relationships and life in general. And this often clashes with the reality that is often far from this picture-perfect vision. As such, we are often met with endless disappointments in this pursuit of ideal love. In the end, it comes down to the ability to understand and discern the relationship you want to build.
