    [030] 15 Red Flags to Watch Out For!

    [030] 15 Red Flags to Watch Out For!

    Emerging organically from recent conversations with friends, Nic talks about red flags to watch out for that often appear early in relationships and can serve as forewarning of potential escalating abuse or unhealthy dynamics later on, or may be so subtle that they are often dismissed or overlooked.

    This episode is intended to help people figure out if they may be in an unhealthy relationship that isn't serving them, or even to see if they might be replicating unhealthy behaviors themselves.

    027 Physical and Social Activity as a Disabled Person?

This show makes me feel more alive

I struggle with disappearing into my head and this show helps me feel connected and lighter. Nic is just such a pure delight and a half. This show is radical relatable. Be well dear readers...

Some of my favorite content

If you care about being vulnerable and hearing from the perspective of someone who is truly passionate about their work and making the world a better place I would check this out! I feel like I didn’t find Nic by accident. This is something my soul needed. Nic’s work helps me in a lot of ways but especially in knowing that I’m not alone in dealing with some of the messiest and most difficult parts about life. but also in celebrating the best parts of life, because it’s important to have community there too.
