Bedtalks Relationship Podcast Ep. 2 – Healing
My new Podcast, Bedtalks, where my significant other and I have informal discussions about common relationship topics sharing both the female and male perspective. We always have our best conversations when we are waking up or getting ready to go to sleep. After all, it's difficult to have a tense discussion when you are in a relaxed state of mind. Something about these moments brings about openness, clarity, and vulnerability about various topics. Today we discuss healing as it relates to relationship. Break-ups are extremely difficult.

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?

What you attract correlates with where you are mentally, emotionally, and s...
