Summary: You may think that your past mistakes define you, that all your broken relationships mean you are broken. Well you’re not. Your past doesn’t define you, it refines you. Welcome to the freedom that comes with being unbroken.
We’ve all said them or heard them at least once in our life. “Happy wife, Happy Life””They’re my better half””I’m looking for someone to complete me””Opposites attract” The problem is all of these are a prescription for disappointment, resentment, and failed relationships.
One of the biggest challenges, and most dangerous pitfalls, in relationships today is the confusion between being important and being a priority. But how do you know if you’re a priority or an option in your relationship? What should you do if you’re not a priority? In this episode I discuss some signs you may not be a priority and what options you have in your relationship.
Every story has power. Untold stories have power over us. As long as you don’t “name your shame” your story has power over you and others can tap into that power to manipulate you. Once you own your story, it can no longer control you nor can others use your story to manipulate you. Like in the final rap battle scene in 8 Mile, Eminem uses his own story to take its power away from his opponent, leaving him completely powerless. “You own everything that happened to you. Tell your stories. - Anne Lamott”
If you’ve ever made a mistake, you’ve inevitably defined yourself by that mistake. Fail a test? “I’m an idiot.” Get fired? “I’ll never hold a job.” Suffer a broken relationship? “I’ll never find love.” Mistakes are simply events. They’re things that happen. THEY ARE NOT WHO YOU ARE! In this episode, I discuss how you can flip the script on the negative events in your life so you can use them to refine you instead of letting them define you.
“What’s next?” That’s the question everyone asks themselves when their relationship, their career, their world falls apart. Any relationship breaking is a loss. And with any loss, there are stages of grief that must be passed through before you are healed and healthy enough to start another relationship.
