    222: Calling The Wedding Off with Natasha Pearl Hansen

    Comedian, Podcast Host of Future Role Model, and CEO/Founder of My Breakup Registry, a community-driven platform that allows people to crowdfund their break-up or divorce and more, Natasha Pearl Hansen joins Chelsea 6 minutes in to talk about the choices leading up to calling off her wedding and deciding to record and self-produce her first comedy special titled “I Was Supposed To Get Married Today…” (Amazon Prime Video) at the venue instead, how dropping her ego and walking away from the “showy stuff” in the midst of heartbreak helped her figure out the most important question, what am I feeling?, and truly change, how her experience in therapy combined with being in a conscious relationship became a masterclass in knowing yourself, and what it feels like to learn, in your 30s, that the conversations you were having with partners in your 20s weren’t that deep after all.

    221: Only For The Brave with Ruchika Lal

    221: Only For The Brave with Ruchika Lal

    "As adults, because we’ve experienced pain, a lot of what we go through in life is pain avoidance rather than truly living," Ruchika Lal, the Founder & CEO of Winked!, an app that aims to make adulting joyful, joins Chelsea 8 minutes in to advocate for embracing our inner child,  and with that our whole range of emotions, picking up the lesson and dropping the story, the opportunity in outgrowing ourselves, surrendering to helplessness rather than shunning it, and why the road to warriorhood is paved with feeling it all and letting transitions fill us with wonder.

    220: Be Suspicious Of Patterns with Sean Galla

    220: Be Suspicious Of Patterns with Sean Galla

    The Founder of MensGroup.com Sean Galla joins Chelsea 9:30 minutes in and, through his own experiences and the wisdom that came with, is able to nudge her toward a massive wake up call before she falls too deep. Topics touched upon within: the healing balm of approachability, preserving your identity within relationships by honoring personal boundaries, there are no shortcuts towards inner validation, the harmful effect of choosing partners and careers that require us to perform outside of our nature, the anxiety of trying to make everything work in your life so you don’t look like a failure, chasing activities in an effort to avoid feelings, setbacks forcing us to turn off, from Mr. Popular/one of Vancouver’s Most Eligible Bachelors to isolated and sick for four years, losing friends when they can no longer relate to you, filling the void by rushing a relationship, not having the self-worth to say I deserve better than this, patterns come from wounding, the power of pacing in new relationships, the classic avoidant hero complex is portraying yourself as the caretaker, underestimating the opportunity cost of being in a mediocre relationship, the call for consistency in intimacy and communication is not a liability, and so much more.

    219: Not Just A Housewife with Laura Friedman Williams

    219: Not Just A Housewife with Laura Friedman Williams

    Author of the memoir Available: A Memoir of Sex & Dating After a Marriage Ends, Laura Friedman Williams opens up about the loneliness of a stay-at-home mother, what her marriage—and life—looked like when she measured it by being happy enough, what it means to no longer be playing the supporting character in her own life, and the sexual liberation following her divorce that set her on a path of self-expression, self-enhancement, and self-sufficiency.

    218: Lazy Loving with Lil Sebby

    218: Lazy Loving with Lil Sebby

    “That’s literally what it is,” today’s guest recording artist Lil Sebby tells Chelsea 57:25 minutes in, "lazy loving. You’re not fully committed. You’re not ready to ride throughout the ups and downs. And there are going to be down times. It’s inevitable. It’s never just going to be perfect. But once it’s not as fun anymore, they dip. They just dip. Ghost culture.”
    HIGHLIGHTS.
    2:35 — I don’t even know if I should be comfortable being close to you. I’m just looking at you from a distance. You could have COVID. The trust for a common human being was gone.
    5:11 — You know how people say, start before you’re ready? The next big shift I need to make is, start before I know. Start before knowing whether it is going to resonate or go in your favor.
    10:15 — You should never stop because you're not making money. Money is just the cherry on top of the cake. The passion is the cake.
    15:40 — Late in my twenties, I started to see that there was always something beautiful about everyone I looked at. I realized that most everyone we pass on the street has been loved before and I started to get curious about that. Someone has loved them, I wonder why.
    21:30 — Depending on Adderall to give us a false sense of interest in our lives.
    29:15 — Sometimes you don’t really connect or click with someone when you want to. You may see they have their own thing going on outside of you that comes into play. And it shows, it radiates off them. They aren’t ready for love and you don’t want to force that.
    33:10 — I would never change who you are for nobody. Because when you’re changing who you are for somebody else, are you truly happy or are you trying to impress and having to hold back? Because, then, you’re in your head and that’s the worst place to be.
    43:20  — Girls won’t even give dudes a shot these days.
    59 — We don’t need fans. We need believers. We need partners who believe in us.
    1:08:40 — I feel like if you want something, you can get there and get rejected but at least you tried and took the time to get there rather than not going to figure it out. You fail by not trying. You succeeded by trying. So, either way, you win. 
    1:16:00 — I’m more litty than ever. We’re having a lit experience right now because we’re expressing ourselves.

Thoughtful and helpful

This podcast has been so helpful and thought provoking. It has been a solace to me during a heartbreak I’m working thru. It has helped change my perspective- I like the reminder and teaching that relationships and breakups are educational and learning experiences. Thank u

Unique and thought-provoking!

Never before have I been compelled to write a review for a podcast but this podcast really struck a chord with me. Before listening, I (stereotypically) thought of heartbreak as something that might occur in a relationship with ONLY a romantic partner. (Two people in a relationship “break up” leading to “heartbreak”) However, that is just not the case. We can mourn anyone and anything while simultaneously manifesting a deeper appreciation for the inner strength that triumphed.

What in the phil ,
