In this episode, we look at marriage in the LGBTQ community. This is a topic that can be taboo as some people may not want to discuss marriage among those who identify as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, or Transgender. In this episode, we push back on that notion and talk about who you choose to love and who you choose to marry. We discuss why validation and marriage is important, why marriage rights are different for the LGBTQ community, how same-sex marriages have been viewed over time, logistical hurdles when marrying, marrying for love and more. Our special guest for this episode, who is part of the LGBTQ community, is Cultural Expert, Collincia Rouse.
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?

So how do we love differently? In this episode, we discuss how to understand the best ways to love your partner and different ways to think about the love languages that we may already be familiar with.
