If your relationships feel strained, this might be why

If your relationships feel strained, difficult, or leave you feeling less than pleased, this video might offer you some answers.

Watch the video on this blog to learn how your relationships are really mirrors for you and what that even means...

Your Relationships As Mirrors

Relationships are great. They serve a wonderful purpose in our lives. Relationships help us feel like we are connected. They help us feel we are loved and we belong. Our relationships help us to feel good about ourselves…

That is, until they don’t help us feel that way anymore. 

When your relationships start to lose a sense of meaning and it feels like the love is lost, all of a sudden it can start to feel like life is losing its sense of meaning too.

What is Self-Sabotage, Really?

There was a time in the therapy world where we used to say people were “self-sabotaging” when they would do something to mess up life when it was going well.

The Lies We Tell Ourselves

The stories we tell ourselves. Lies. All lies. Until we find our stories and heal them. Until we see where they come from and hear them. Until we hear them with love and compassion and kindness. Until we can welcome them with an open heart. And once we do that, more accurate and true stories can emerge. Until then, they are all lies. 

The theme of the process of unbecoming in order to become has been on my mind for a few months now, and this blog is finally ready to be written as I too have been moving through clearing a number of the old lies I've told myself, as I too have been moving through the process of unbecoming in order to become. 

When Sex Hurts

When Sex Hurts

Having sex with our partners should be fun. We love the people we have chosen to call our boyfriends, girlfriends, husbands and wives. We want to be able to share all of ourselves with them. After all, these are the people who we care about and who care about us. But what happens when sex isn't fun?...

When Fear Runs the Show

When Fear Runs the Show

How can the Universe bring you the relationships you deserve if you are operating on fear and constantly fighting, running away from, or freezing anytime a relationship presents itself to you? It can’t. So I invite you to take a moment to ponder that...
