Get to the root of emotional issues and learn the best way to relate to yourself and others by honoring your personal boundaries and making decisions that are in alignment with what's most important to you.
This is not a "common-sense" personal growth and development show. You won't be told to think positively or create affirmations.

Learn what your parents or caretakers never taught you about emotional wellness and creating strong, non-toxic bonds with others.
If you want the exact instructions that will help improve your life, you're in the right place.
Is it selfish to focus on your own personal development when others need your time and energy?
If you've reached a level of personal growth of development that you are happy about and are ready to take it to the next level, but those around you are still in a place that forces you to slow down and meet them where they are instead, is it selfish to continue your journey or should you go at their pace? In this episode, a wife asks if it's selfish to follow her path when her husband is reaching out to her while on his own path.
Should you be more tolerant of bad behavior when they can't control themselves?
Sometimes we can't help ourselves. Anger can come out of the blue and suddenly, we're hurting someone we care about.
I heard from someone that said sometimes you need people in your life to understand that you are going to get upset now and again, and they should be empathetic for your inability to control it.
What is the solution? Should those you love be more tolerant of hurtful behavior or should they put you in your place, telling you to stop or else?

If you're dealing with a controlling person, this might be the episode for you.
The best kind of relationship is the one where you can be yourself
Romantic relationships can create some of the most complex emotional challenges in your life. From heartful to heartache, from elated to deflated, relationships bring us through a roller coaster of emotions until we are either fulfilled or completely drained.
It doesn't have to be that way. Sometimes the right tools and the right mindset can create relationships that don't have to be so difficult. In fact, they can be wonderful when you know how to deal with the challenges that show up.
