#4 The secret ingredient to self-love
If you feel a little lost because you're no longer in a relationship, this episode is for you.
Often we get lost in our relationships - depending on someone else to keep us motivated, entertained, and fulfilled.
Logically we know this is a bunch of unrealistic BS - We don't need a partner to be fulfilled,
BUT the HOW is a whole other ballgame and we are gonna talk about it in this episode.
Self-love allows us to heal faster but HOW?
How do we love ourselves when we are feeling alone and rejected?
There's a lot of ingredients when it comes to self-love - today I'll cover one of the secret ingredients to help you move forward.
One more thing! Come join the convo about this episode and the others on Facebook: More than a Single Mom Facebook Group
