    Ep34: Asking Each Other Tough Questions ft. the boyfriend

    Ep34: Asking Each Other Tough Questions ft. the boyfriend

    In today's episode, my boyfriend Shawn and I sit down and ask each other some DEEP questions. 

    The only rules? That we have to answer honestly: no filters, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth (!!!) 

    Talking about everything from missing exes to loving someone who has depression, we dive into the more intimate (and spicy) parts of our relationship. Let's normalize talking about the tough stuff with the people we love.

    Ep33: 5 Things I Wish I Had Known About Post-Grad Life

    Ep33: 5 Things I Wish I Had Known About Post-Grad Life

    We all wish we could go back and tell our younger selves what we know now, and that's ESPECIALLY true when it comes that weird limbo period after graduation. 

    Class of 2021, or any who graduated recently: this one's for you. 

    Here are the five things I wish someone had told me about the emotions and experiences I'd face in post-grad life. Everything from how to make new friends to first job jitters, to my own story of hitting rock bottom in my first year out of college. I hope this helps!

    Ep32: Why Do My Relationships Suck? | Fear of Abandonment & Attachment Wounds

    Ep32: Why Do My Relationships Suck? | Fear of Abandonment & Attachment Wounds

    Do you ever feel like your relationships just SUCK no matter what? Maybe it's that pesky habit of yours to self-sabotage when things are going too good. Or maybe you feel like you can't really trust or depend on anyone. Or you might spend most of the relationship freaked out that the other person will up and leave any day now. 

    If that sounds like you... this episode is going to change your life. 

    Fear of abandonment is one of the most prevalent issue in relationships, yet it's not talked about enough. In today's episode, I break down how fear of abandonment could be holding you back from happy healthy relationships, why you choose the wrong partners, and what to do about all... that.

    Ep31: Surviving Sexual Assault pt.2 - The Aftermath

    Ep31: Surviving Sexual Assault pt.2 - The Aftermath

    TW: r*pe, trauma

    Today I'll be talking about facing the aftermath of my sexual assaults. Being a survivor is a messy and complex experience, and this is my attempt to make sense of some of the things that occurred during this time: hypersexuality, self-harm, rediscovering healthy sex, and dealing with my trauma in therapy. 

    For more information on sexual assault, please visit this Google Doc of resources I've created: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1cl3QAcOGyrfZXA4qOtUtxsi24bxdtKLFTg4PyxvJD3Q/edit

    Ep30: Making a Long Distance Relationship Work

    Ep30: Making a Long Distance Relationship Work

    Dating during a worldwide pandemic is not easy. It's even harder when you have to be separated from your partner and aren't able to see each other often (if at all). 

    In today's episode, my LDR partner Shawn and I sit down to talk about how, as the wise Rihanna once said, "we found love in a hopeless place." We share the growing pains of starting a LDR in the middle of a pandemic, pros & cons of being separated, and tackling jealousy and trust issues when you can't be with your partner in person.

    Ep29: Perfectionism, Self-Sabotage, and Learning How to "Fail Forward"

    Ep29: Perfectionism, Self-Sabotage, and Learning How to "Fail Forward"

    2020 was A LOT. Sh*t hit the fan. I fell off the grid for a bit. But I'm back, and I'm here to talk about an issue that's been plaguing me ever since I started this podcast: FEAR OF FAILURE.

    Do you ever feel like you have so many goals and dreams, but you can't bring yourself to start working towards them? Are you a chronic procrastinator? Is your perfectionism holding you back from the life you want?

    If so, join the club: grab a chair and have an antacid. Today we're talking about how our fear of failure sabotages us, fixed vs growth mindset, and what "failing forward" means.
