Relationships often start with a spark, but how do you keep that spark alive without getting burnt?

It's a common question that many couples face as they navigate the complexities of maintaining a healthy and deep relationship.

Today, we will look deep into seeing the differences between a toxic and a healthy relationship and uncover the ways to build a lasting one. Every relationship is different - but understanding these four different toxic traits that are common in relationships will help you move away from something that is not serving you. 

Moving to a healthy relationship when you’re coming from a toxic one is difficult but finding the courage to do so is a crucial step towards your emotional well-being and personal growth. 

In this episode, you'll learn:

  • How to prioritize healthy love over perfection
  • How to embrace each other’s unique identities
  • How to avoid over-reliance and codependence
  • How to practice transparent communication

Hope that this guides you through a more healthy and happy relationship! 

With Love and Gratitude,
