It’s hard when someone you care about hurts you. How could someone break your heart and why would they do this? What did you do in the situation that may have played a part in this? These are the questions and many more that may run through your mind. In this episode, we discuss key points in helping you heal through a heartache which include but is not limited to being vulnerable and honest about your situation, reaching out to the right people to talk to about your heartache, and understanding the importance of growing out of the same vicious cycles in your relationships.
When you are falling in love or realize you might be in love, many of us may wonder (or even our closest confidants who we may tell about our feelings may wonder and ask) if it truly is love or just an infatuation.

Why do we hurt the person we care about so much? Why not leave instead of hurting your partner? In this episode, Sherley and Kira discuss what often provokes infidelity, detaching, accountability, putting energy towards positive things, and choosing the right path.

We walk through setting the tone for what we want, listening to our gut, and the importance of communication.
Forgiveness is a major part of the healing process. It is defined as “a conscious deliberate decision to release feelings of hurt and resentment toward someone who has hurt you whether they deserve your forgiveness or not.” In this episode, Sherley and Kira discuss what it means to be a prisoner of self, choosing to release feelings of hurt and resentment in order to heal, expectations, and loving unconditionally.
