    How to Heal Yourself and Find Love, with Veronica Grant

    How to Heal Yourself and Find Love, with Veronica Grant

    Feeling loved looks different for everyone but the common thread is that often it comes from another individual. With all this trendy self love talk, we tell ourselves we don’t need to seek love from others to feel loved and while that is true, it is healthy to seek love from others, as long as it is not all you depend on to feel love in general. So how can we tell if the love we look for is toxic or not? We have love and life coach and host of Love Life connection podcast, Veronica Grant, in to discuss emotional availability and why women should stop pointing the finger at men, how our patterns and lack of self-love affect relationships, and why we do what we do in our love life.

    The Real Reason Relationships Fail, with Dr. Abby Medcalf

    The Real Reason Relationships Fail, with Dr. Abby Medcalf

    Failed relationships. We all have them but why? During a breakup or separation we spend soooo much time trying to figure out who is at fault when we need to focus on the real issues that cause the same patterns of failed relationships in the first place, so we can fix it in time for “the one.” Most people think problems with communication is the reason most relationships bite the dust but you’d be surprised to hear what our guest relationship maven, author, psychologist, and TEDx speaker, Dr. Abby Medcalf, has to say about what she thinks are the REAL reason relationships fail is! And trust us, you have never heard this one before but it makes SO. Much. Sense.

    When It’s Good To Ghost, with Melanie Hersch

    When It’s Good To Ghost, with Melanie Hersch

    Ghosting, we have all been ghosted and we have all been the ghoster! When someone just disappears it can cause a ton of insecure thoughts and make it scary to jump back into the dating pool and when you are doing the ghosting it ends up making you feel guilty and like you’re going to have bad karma. If all this strife comes from merely NOT texting or calling someone back then why do we all keep doing it? Lucky for us we have licensed marriage and family therapist and dating coach at eHarmony, Melanie Hersch in to discuss, ghosting: why it happens and why it’s good, how can we fail proof our communication in dating, why our limiting beliefs impact our dating success and what we can do to build dating resilience.

    Should We Talk About It?, with Gabriela Ulloa

    Should We Talk About It?, with Gabriela Ulloa

    Have you seen red flags but painted them white? Spotting an issue in someone else is hard because you don’t want to write them off after one incident, but you also don't want to stick around too long and get caught in a toxic relationship. The longer you hold on, the harder it is to let go because feelings grow deeper, you become more attached and you are more apt to make excuses, otherwise known as painting red flags white! We are happy to have journalist and host of “Should We Talk About It,” Gabriela Ulloa in to discuss how to love and forgive yourself by strengthening your mental health, how to avoid burnout and take care of yourself in your career when you are just starting out, and how to create healthy relationships and spot red flags in toxic ones.
