Bedtalks Relationship Podcast Ep. 6 – What is the Foundation of Your Relationship?

Bedtalks Relationship Podcast Ep. 6 – What is the Foundation of Your Relationship?
I have an important question for you: What is the Foundation of Your Relationship? As you know, without the proper foundation, it's hard to build anything solid. A poorly constructed house will fall apart. Not teaching your kids the fundamentals and failing to give them the proper foundation can limit their potential once they reach adulthood. Putting together any piece of furniture without the needed screws will lead to a poorly constructed piece of furniture that will fall apart more quickly than one that is well constructed. Listen in as K and I discuss on Bedtalks how two people c...

Bedtalks Relationship Podcast Ep. 3 – The Lustful Truth About Love
  In this episode of Bedtalks, we focus on lust and love and how the two intermingle. Differentiating between lust and love is hard in the beginning. Desire can be intense at the onset of a relationship, often making it difficult to recognize true feelings versus infatuation or a physical desire for someone. But lust and love have separate definitions. Love is defined as having an intense deep feeling of affection for someone. Lust is having a strong sexual desire for someone. But the two may coexist in a relationship which is why it's important to be able to differentiate...

5 Powerful Lessons Losing Can Teach You

5 Powerful Lessons Losing Can Teach You
I have been watching a new documentary on Netflix called Losers. It showcases individuals who were extremely talented, worked hard at their craft for many years and while sustaining some level of success, missed out on winning what would have put them at the peak of their aspirations. We often focus on winners, but we don’t focus on the journey of losses, often times significant ones, that these individuals experienced along the way. One friend of mine would often say to me that you will get a 1,000 no’s before you get a yes and while the number is extreme, I think this metaphor has some trut...

What happens when we choose to stay in a toxic relationship? What if you are married to a toxic person? How do you know if you should get a divorce? We do intensive research before buying a house, a car, or even a new stereo. Rarely do we take the same steps to make sure we are entering a healthy relationship.

Once we suspect we're in a toxic relationship, we need to do some serious thinking. Choosing to rem...
