Don’t go to the DIY store for milk.  Seems simple doesn’t it?  If only it was as easy as it sounds.  In this episode I’m exploring why we will often look to get our needs met in places and people that aren’t right for us, and the corresponding upset that this can cause.  Fortunately we don’t have to be destined to stay on this roundabout forever.  Have a listen and find out what’s happening when we are looking in the wrong place, and equally, what we can do about it.
