OTC Ep. 40 – Dr. Les Parrot – Healthy Me, Healthy Us
Everyone wants healthy and happy relationships. Too often though, we look to external sources to try and complete us. Which sets us and our relationships up for failure and ultimately leaves us empty and searching for more. We often look to change others rather than work on ourselves. Dr. Les Parrott in his newest book teaches tangible techniques for how to improve ourselves and “get healthy”.
“If you try to build intimacy with another person before you’ve done the difficult task of getting whole on your own, all your relationships become an attempt to complete yourself!”
