The Stories we Tell Ourselves.
Do you lie to yourself or other people? Even small misrepresentations can impact our lives day to day. Today we delve deep into the "stories" we tell ourselves and others. We also talk about how we each have our own "truth" and how difficult that can be in relationships.
How Good are your Boundaries?
