One thought on “283: THE HAPPINESS MYTH

  1. Another geat podcast. I have been listening for almost a year and I love the podcast. I envy you guys. I wish my spouse would listen too then maybe we can improve our marriage. This morning I was just thinking about being happy with my spouse. I used to expected him to made me happy but I am no longer cause I end up just be disappointed. What is the point staying in a relationship when he isn’t making me happy and I can be happy by myself. Sometime I want to leave but I have five little children. He was my first. It is better be alone than be loneless in a marriage.
