When we go through heartbreak, we tend to forget about loving ourselves and each other. We will mentally create false thoughts in our minds that will tear us down. Our mind is a powerful tool and this mental sabotage prevents us from healing. In this episode, we discuss how to love ourselves after our hearts have been shattered and rediscovering our worth. What does it take to recover from heartbreak? How do we engage in voicing our experiences and opinions in healthy ways on the road to healing? How do we move forward from harmful messages from people around us while we are healing? How do we remain mindful of the fat that we cannot control anyone while trying to regain control of our lives?
Why should you stay after your partner cheated? There is no right or wrong answer to this question. Many people may say that once a person cheats, they are leaving. Is it even possible to rebuild your relationship knowing your partner has betrayed you. In this podcast, we guide you with tips for making the decision that is best for you. These tips include but are not limited to processing your crisis instead of reacting out of emotion, understanding the catalyst, being in tune with love languages, and being mindful of your decisions every step of the way.
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.

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. We have similar questions when we are well into a relationship for some time and things may not go as planned or seem stagnant. Although in most cases you cannot be sure with clinical precision, there are a few signs that could tell you if it is time to part ways with the other person.
Every relationship is different and has its own sets of needs so there is no one size fits all answer here. I cannot tell you what is best for your relationship. It really comes down to the two of you sitting down to figure out the wisest path for your future. There are many factors to consider; finances, work, children, family, rented and/or owned property, healthcare, and so on. One great way to begin to figure out what’s best for you is couple’s therapy. If you’re able to afford therapy, consider talking through all of your decisions in therapy which will help you see what you are emotionally ready for as well. Because it’s not just a physical, tangible decision. This decision will affect you mentally and emotionally as well.
