    On this episode, I share some things I've come to understand more of when it comes to the people in my life and the support I needed from them.

    We all want to feel appreciated, seen, heard and valued, but the reality is, not everyone have the ability to give you these things.

    2 Questions:

    How would you feel if these things aren't often shown/given to you?

    Are you currently experiencing frustration from lack of support?

    On this episode, I share a new valuable HOLISTIC lesson I've learn while watching last night's epic Verzuz battle between the queens, Stephanie Mills and Chaka Khan.

    Part of the concept of being holistic is keeping everything balanced, not only physically, but emotionall andmentally, as well. That carries over into how we handle situations. Especially, situations that may be challenging or truamatic for us and for those we ...

    On this 70th episode in the season of relationships and intimacy, I feel compelled to give you some encouragment about dating.

    We've all experienced dating disasters, but as much as we'd hate to admit, they're a part of life and they actually help us to become better humans.

    You may have had enough and NEVER want to date again, but what if I told you there's someone out there for you? Would you believe me?

    There's a lot of fragility and suppressed emotions that most men struggle with. Especially, men of color. It's understandable why our men feel like the weight of the world is on them. Black men being conditioned to mask their emotions and not express how they feel openes the door to...

    The relationship with ourselves is the most important relationship we can have.

    On today's episode, I share the reasons why you're not loving yourself as much as you think you are.

    There are three primary reasons why we fail to love ourselves properly:

  • Holding on to past hurt
  • Not doing what we truly love
  • Lack of proper self care
  • We'll explain each and what we can do to strenghthen the love we have for ourselves.

    Being an emotionally unavailable person can harbor feelings of fear; fear of failure, fear of opening up, fear of trusting, and fear of being yourself.  This can definitely make it impossible to have a healthy relationship.

    Because of our uniqueness in how we handle things, it's a fact that we express emotional unavailability in our own way. However, some of us may seem standoffish in general. Signs include avoiding certain top...

    Our habit of "people pleasing" will prevent others from reciprocating equitably, creating imbalances that a lot of relationships suffer from. Many of us tthat suffer with people pleasing may be oblivious to that, because the focus on pleasing our romanic partners (or people in general) blinds us from this reality.

    When we strenthen our ability to say no and set boundaries, our need to people please becomes non-existent. Peo...

    We are all capable of having an emotionally healthy relationship. Unfortunately, many of us has failed in that arena. That doesn't negate the fact that we can still create and maintain better relationships than the failed ones we've endured.
