161: THIS is Keeping you Stuck
There is a real epidemic of people believing that they can’t have something.

Some people truly believe that joy, excitement, abundance, it’s not for them. This attitude breeds resentment towards people who have…
160: Sex After Abuse
Let’s get real about sex. First off: do whatever you want with your body. If you’re doing something and you’re enjoying it, get it, boo! I ain’t judging. What I’m going to address specifically is the woman who is having sex because she feels obligated to or because she feels that’s the only way she…
145: How did I get stuck with an abusive partner?
How did I get stuck in the cycle of abuse over and over again? I asked this question to myself a lot and found that many others do, too. Even if we understand what got us here in the first place, we don’t understand why we keep going back to relationships where we’re treated like…

Victims don’t stay in abusive relationships because we like the abuse. What we go through actually…
139: Learning to Open Up
I want to be real here and be vulnerable here may come and bite me in the butt. But you know what I know someone needs this. For most of my life, I needed attention from men. And when I say need, I’m not talking about some funny sitcom where the woman is desperately single.…

Are you carrying a fear of growth? If you are, you’re not alone. This is what we’re diving into today. What holds a lot of people back from growth is knowing that it isn’t going to be easy. For a break down of the different types of fear and how to combat them, listen to…
135: Codependency – It isn’t what you think
When you hear the word codependent, what do you think of? If you’re anything like me, you think of those clingy people who can’t survive without being latched on to another person. In our minds, that’s codependent. And yes, that is most definitely codependent. But what if I told you that that’s not the only…
133: The 3 Fears Holding You Back
One of the hardest parts of healing is the fear of the unknown. A huge reason why a lot of us don’t want to step into our healing journey because it’s like, “well, I don’t know what’s on the other side of it. What’s going to come up when I begin to process these things,…
