Something huge is happening.
For the first time ever, in addition to recording the audio for a podcast episode for you we are going to be recording these podcast episodes on video and posting them to our YouTube channel.
Pretty cool, right?
Check it out,
Video Of Episode 51 (He Broke Into My House?!?)
I’m really curious to see what you think of us doing this!
Personally I had a blast and I am hoping that this is something that you enjoy as well because it’s something that I want to do a lot more of.
So, if you would be so kind to let me know what you think of the podcast video in the comments that would be greatly appreciated.
But I think I have gone on my little rant a little too long. Let’s talk about what’s happening in today’s episode,
A Recap Of The Situation (Anonymous)
This is a strange episode because the woman (who wanted to remain anonymous) who is featured in this episode of the podcast had a situation that I hadn’t ever encountered before and you know me, I love challenges.
Anyways, part of the problem was that she didn’t ask me for any specific advice on her situation.
I believe her exact words were,
“I just don’t know what to think…”
But when she was telling me about her situation she said something that gave me an idea on a topic that I know a ton of you want to hear about, commitment.
Here’s a quick recap of her situation,
- They broke up because they wanted different things out of life
- She wanted to get married and he doesn’t know what he wants
- They dated for a year and then broke up
- It was a friendly breakup (hugging, kissing, crying)
- Claims that he broke into her house to get a hoody and sweatpants
- She wasn’t home and he left a note for her
- Doesn’t know what to think of this
Important Things I Talk About In This Episode

- A fear of confrontation

(BONUS) What Is Interdependence Theory?
This is such an important concept that I feel it warranted it’s own bonus section. The interdependence theory will give you some extreme insight into why human beings commit or break commitments.
Interdependence Theory: We commit to partners because we are dependent on that partner.
There are a total three factors that you need to look at with commitment via the interdependence theory,
- Satisfaction- The individual receives benefits with few costs
- Alternatives- The individual can’t get their needs met elsewhere
- Investment- The individual has a high amount of resources devoted to the partner
In other words, these three factors are what people consider when they are determining whether or not they want to commit or stay committed in a relationship.
This might be handy to know especially if you are dealing with an ex.
