[LISTEN] We become what we've seen in relationships says psychologist

In the Wellness Feature, psychologist and coach Yasmeen Engelbrecht chats about relationships and why we keep dating the same kind of person.

Engelbrecht says that the reason we keep dating the same kind of people is because we always want to be right.

We choose a person that will confirm our beliefs about relationships.

Yasmeen Engelbrecht, psychologist and coach

Engelbrecht says that the question ends up becoming, 'Where do the beliefs come from?'

She adds that these beliefs can sometimes play out in not so obvious ways.

Engelbrecht says that we need to ask ourselves, what have I learnt from relationships?

She adds that she often asks people to write down 3 things they've learnt about relationships from their childhood

Unless you've seen a healthy, functioning relationship in your childhood... You will probably repeat those patterns in some form or another.
