Welcome to the Raw, Real and Rebelicious Podcast!

My name is Michelle Coops, and as a Life, Love & Leadership Mentor I guide people to liberate themselves from the invisible shackles that keep them from showing up authentically and unapologetically in their relationships.

In this podcast I share about how you can deepen your relationship with yourself, your partner… and actually everyone you come close to.

I believe we are all relational beings. We are wired for connection.

The more we are connected to ourselves, the more we can authentically connect to others.

As many others before me have stated: The quality of your relationship determines the quality of your life. This starts with you taking ownership, Leadership, of yourself.

And so I ask you: are you open to explore how you can become who you’re meant to be: a free, courageous, radiant, joyful, bad-ass, confident and juicy creature of love, who takes charge like a true Leader does.

    S2E10 A Fresh Perspective on Prioritizing Yourself

    S2E10 A Fresh Perspective on Prioritizing Yourself

    Welcome to another soul-stirring podcast episode. This time, we'll be diving deep into a critical question - how do you prioritize yourself in a healthy way? This is especially important in an era of over-giving, where we often forget to put ourselves first.
    In society, the concept of self-prioritization is often justified with popular notions of self-care and autonomy. We'll question that view and challenge the common but misleading perception that self-autonomy means a hierarchy that unintentionally places others on the back burner.
    We'll explore a different conceptual slant. Self-prioritization isn't an either/or choice, nor should it create hierarchy. The key to a healthy balance, lies in redefining the narrative: it isn't about 'me first', but 'me as well'.
    This view recognizes that while all individuals, including ourselves, are important, circumstances and relationships can influence where the most attention is required at a given time. This shift helps recenter us back into the cranial fabric of our communities, fostering stronger, healthier relationships with others and ourselves.
    Join us on this enlightening episode, as we dismantle black and white sayings, and embrace a more inclusive, relatable approach to self-care. Discover how a healthy balance of autonomy can color your life and inspire you to mature in your sovereignty. So, get ready to embark on a redefined journey of self-prioritization, where every soul matters!

    S2E8 Overcoming Fear of Abandonment through the Best Relationship Ever

    S2E8 Overcoming Fear of Abandonment through the Best Relationship Ever

    In this inspiring and insightful podcast episode, we seek to explore the relationship with self, focusing on the crucial topic of the fear of abandonment. A basic human instinct that goes back years to when survival relied on being part of a tribe, this fear has evolved into more complex forms, manifesting in our relationships and our interactions with the world.
    We delve into how fear of abandonment may be dictating our responses, choosing a life of misery over the fright of being alone, or holding on too tight to avoid giving others the space to go. The central theme remains the same: deep down, it's all about not wanting to be left alone without the protection of the tribe which essentially translates to the fear of death.
    Through personal experiences and psychological insights, I present how overcoming this fear can only be achieved if we prioritize ourselves and nourish the relationship with self above anything else. Recognize your fears, feelings, stories, physical discomforts, all in an effort to understand that there is a part of you that longs for recognition and attention.
    Explore an intriguing concept of reparenting ourselves where you express love, empathy, and strictness towards your inner child. It's about teaching ourselves that it's completely okay to be available for our emotions, needs, desires, to give voice to them, and ultimately to be available for us.
    Tune into this episode for a deeper understanding of yourself, to work your way towards overcoming fears, and forming a stronger, healthier bond with yourself.

    S2E7 Unraveling the Contradictory Dance between Distance and Closeness in Relationships

    S2E7 Unraveling the Contradictory Dance between Distance and Closeness in Relationships

    Welcome to a captivating exploration of the complex world of relationship dynamics. In this podcast episode, we delve deep into the familiar dance between love and fear; discussing the delicate equilibrium of emotional space and connection, and the subconscious dance where each partner has contrasting needs. We uncover the underlying causes of one partner's retreat and provide practical strategies to help manage this effectively. Also, we explore withdrawal as a coping mechanism, the significance of hormones and attachment styles in the mix of things.
    Understanding your partner's withdrawal as their safe haven during stress can, often times, change your perspective. This episode aims to help you empathize with your partner's retreat as being unrelated to the relationship and more as a coping mechanism. In the midst of all this, acknowledging your own feelings becomes equally important. This self-awareness can help decipher whether your impulse to hold on stems from a genuine desire to support your partner or a less selfless need to feel needed.
    The episode also dives into the concept of "promised returns" - assuring your partner of reconnection after periods of self-regulation – an understanding which can provide a sense of security to the anxious partner. By addressing these challenging situations, this discourse helps you navigate the common relationship trials with understanding and empathy, facilitating a way for stronger and healthier relationships.
    Join us in this illuminating discussion and gain valuable insights into managing emotional spaces in your relationship, fostering personal growth, and creating a lasting, mature connection. Every relationship is a rhythmic dance of closeness and distancing, with the perfect balance struck in understanding, patience, and love - the core ingredients of the symphony of love.
