    Welcome to Season 3, Episode 17 of Create Your Happy: "Beyond Sacrifice: Harmonizing Love, Life, and Parenting for Mutual Growth." As your one and only Happiness Hussy and host, Christy Holt, I’m back with another episode, this time exploring a topic that's been a huge part of my journey and learning: the concept of sacrifice in relationships.



    Through many difficult personal experiences and hard lessons, I've come to see that true love won’t require us to lose ourselves. Let's dive into how we can love deeply without sacrifice, embracing self love as our guiding light.



    🔥 What You'll Discover in This Episode: 🔥



    -The Myth of Sacrifice in Love: We're unraveling the old belief that love requires sacrifice and why it's time to let it go.

    -Creating Win-Win Solutions: Practical steps to finding solutions that honour both you and your loved ones without compromise.

    -The Impact of Sacrifice on Parenting: A personal reflection on parenting without sacrifice and what it means for our children.



    💡 Featured Quotes: 💡



    "The belief that love requires us to sacrifice is a myth that many of us have lived by. But here's the truth, sacrificing our needs leads to self abandonment."



    "True love supports growth and fulfillment, not sacrifice, and that love enriches us, not diminishes us. If you’re giving from a place of abundance, there will always be enough."

    Join me in the next episode, “Breaking the Bedroom Obligation: Reclaiming Pleasure Beyond People Pleasing”. Together, we'll dive into a deeply personal and transformative discussion about intimacy, obligation, and the people pleasing behaviors that can infiltrate our most private moments. When sex starts feeling like a chore, obligation creeps in, and we find ourselves saying yes when we really mean no, it's time to take a step back and reassess. We'll explore how saying yes to others can mean saying no to ourselves, and how we can start listening to our intuition to find harmony and reclaim pleasure. If you've ever felt pressured, guilty, or disconnected in the bedroom, this episode is intended to guide you toward a healthier, more joyful understanding of your desires and boundaries.

Uplifting & Awakening & Self Trust

Christy I Love your podcast show! Most recently listened to Religion vs Spirituality and vibed with you and your guest. Love that you are challenging humans to follow their own path and release misconceptions that no longer align with their vibe and current truth.

As most of us awakening souls, I’ve lead a life of evolving my connection with the divine, transmuting/transforming suffering & ancient myths & trauma wounds held in the body and your podcast speaks to trusting our intuitive guidance which speaks to me and represents so much of my teachings & spiritual guidance to the world.

Thank you for your incredible heart!!
