Ever had a guy ghost you? He’s into you and suddenly he pulls away or cheats? Does he leave and come back into your life? This is a Gumball Guy. Gumball Love is attention addiction.

Attention is just like a Gumball, temporarily intense and sweet but soon the effect is gone. Guys addicted to the “Gumball" (any flavor of attention), get a high from the excitement, adoration and validation. During this cycle they appear to be falling in love. When the high is gone they pull away, ghost or cheat leaving you feeling confused, rejected and heartbroken.

I'm your host, Melissa Leger, professional relationship coach, creator of Gumball Love and the Back to You Academy. If you're ready to stop the cycle of toxic men, get through the break up once and for all, and finally get back to YOU, you are in the right place. This journey is about healing your heart, and you are encouraged to take the pace that is just right for you. In the process, you will build a foundation of confidence and strength that will make you unshakable, I promise. So get ready to level up your mindset and your lifestyle, as you awaken the seeds of greatness that are waiting to burst into full bloom. Let's do this!

    Are You Caught in the Cycle of Playing Games?

    Are You Caught in the Cycle of Playing Games?

    Wondering if YOU are the Gumball Girl? 
    Sometimes we are the ones giving and receiving gumballs, and it feels good to get that dopamine hit. This isn't always a bad thing, if your relationship with this guy is not SOLELY based on these dopamine hits.
    It becomes a problem when the guy is not seeking anything more than a quick "high", and there is no deeper level of intimacy and friendship holding the relationship together.
    If you're worried you are a Gumball Girl or wondering why you're always caught up playing games in dating, this episode will help you decode what you are getting out of being with these guys and playing the games.

    Are You Giving Too Much to the Wrong People?

    Are You Giving Too Much to the Wrong People?

    When we are disappointed with another person or situation in our life, it can almost always come back to what expectations we had about that person or situation.
    When someone doesn't come through for us, we assume it was their conscious choice. But often, we're assuming this person has more to give than they actually do.
    Not everyone has the capacity to love you as much as you love them. And once we can recognize that and let go of expectations, our life will be much more peaceful.
    Join me in this episode as I dive deeper into what boundaries are, the process of creating boundaries, how to recognize when your boundaries have been crossed, and more!
