Wow I feel woke

Everything you spoke about on being avoidant and also codependent. I have been on both sides of that world in separate occasions. Not gonna lie I felt trauma come up listening and that is completely ok and necessary. I can relate to both vicky and key. Listening to this I feel hopeful that one day I will be in a relationship that will bring challenges that I could handle. Since I feel I’ve come a long way. Thank you for this 👏🙏. Vickie has the best story telling voice, so calming and soothing.

Great episode

You outdid yourselves in this episode. It was comforting and honest. The subject line is obviously something we all deal with in our daily lives and difficult to discuss without the feeling of blame. After listening, I walked away feeling refreshed and thinking- wow! - these guys are HOLDING themselves together! Beautiful!! Love your podcast!
