    On Today's Episode:

    How do you know if he’s really interested or just obsessed with you? In reality, it’s hard to decipher what’s fact and what’s myth when it comes to knowing what men want.

    Him chasing you and giving you lots of time and attention may not be reliable in determining his real intentions for you. His lack of time and communication doesn’t necessarily indicate that he’s playing games or not interested either.

    Stephan (Labossiere) Speaks is a relationship coach dedicated to helping men and women experience happier and more fulfilling relationships. In today’s episode, you’re going to see that much of the problems we need to address are internal.

    Ladies, it's time to reconnect with your greatest source of power, that female intuition, and slow down long enough to be honest with yourself. Having the best relationship of your life is possible, but it’s going to take you asking the hard questions and answering them honestly.

    Why are you really here in this current relationship?
    Why are you holding onto a relationship with the wrong person?
    What are you afraid of, really?

    It’s time to get some straightforward advice from the relationship expert himself, so you can be strong and have your own back in every relationship.

    QUOTES:

    “Him chasing you is not always the greatest indicator that he’s serious about you, or that he has genuine intention.” [1:08]

    “There’s this idea that men don’t have feelings or that men are not being heartbroken by women out there.” [8:06]

    “I do believe the strength of the man is the logical mind, and the strength of the woman is the intuition mind.” [15:10]

    “If you have to cultivate it that means you’re just growing attached to this individual that’s not a connection.” [20:49]

    “It can’t be not true love on my end, but true love on your end.” [22:07]

    “Stop doing what you think will work and do what works for you.” [31:22]

    “The goal should be not trying to fit into other people’s lives, but seeing who we fit together with.” [34:22]

    “Best foot forward should not be how do I win the date over. Best foot forward should be how do I really show who I am to see if they really connect with me.” [35:45]

    “The key to great long lasting sex is connection.” [55:54]

    “I believe a lot of people become narcissists in their relationship, they were not narcissists in the beginning.” [56:46]

    “Some of you are holding on because you’re afraid to be alone, not because you love them.” [58:14]

    “Are you willing to put in the work to receive what you want out of life?” [1:02:12]

    “One of the biggest mistakes a man or a woman can make is to let someone think that no matter what they do you will stay.” [1:07:02]

    “When a man really likes a woman, he’s more concerned about how she perceives his pursuit of it [sex], so he’s going to be more careful, he’s going to be more willing to be patient, [...] the last thing he wants to do is to make you think that’s all he’s here for…” [1:16:33]

    QUOTES:

    “There’s nothing wrong with not constantly being that shining light on everyone and everything.” [2:25]

    “Saying no to a person in power, when you’re here and they’re up here, is not that same as saying no to a person who’s at your level of power. Consent is not the same when there’s power involved.” [9:06]

    “I decided to put this person aside and let this person flourish.” [13:07]

    “To start the healing process, healing couldn’t begin if I was ashamed of my story.” [14:41]

    “Every victim of any form of abuse is someone to someone, is worthy of being heard…” [18:48]

    “My most powerful asset was my truth at that point, there was nothing to hide.” [21:30]

    “The one who broke you cannot heal you. You have to heal you.” [31:42]

    “We give people the power to break us, [...] you give the power to someone to love you and you give the power to someone to break you. It’s their choice with what they do.” [34:05]

    “Boundaries aren’t about being in protection mode. Boundaries are about knowing that what you have within is so valuable that you will not allow certain people to come near it, [...] they stem from self-worth.” [37:57]

    “If pain is knocking at your door and you deal with the pain and take it out of the way, you’re allowing room for yourself to see and feel that happiness that’s waiting at your door.” [56:44]

    “Self-love is picturing the person that you love the most and telling yourself, ‘I will not treat myself any less than I will treat this person.’” [1:06:44]

    “The emptiness we feel on the inside doesn’t mean that we have nothing left within us, it just means that what we created we placed outside of us…” [1:16:27]

    “When you need love, don’t sit there on the floor, in your bathtub, in your bedroom with your phone by your side waiting for someone to magically write a couple words…” [1:23:28]

    You don’t deserve to have someone’s burdens placed on your back for them to believe you love them.” [1:25:11]

I love the honesty

I have always needed validation from my boyfriend because of my passed relationships and so when I saw this episode I immediately saved it and I will probably listen to it a couple times! “Why Your Constant Need for Validation Will End Your Relationship| Relationship Theory”. I love it.

SXM gyal! ,

Great help

Listened to this episode today and it was very refreshing. I am working on this 28 days self discovery journey and this episode definitely brought some light into my life. I felt like Cheryl was speaking about me as I go through the same things she has described. Took notes and will hopefully work on finding my truth. Cheryl, thank you for sharing your story 🙏🏾
