On today’s episode we sit down with Holly Hughes and hear her story of her starter marriage. How when she looks back, all the red flags she saw when they dated, were the exact reason she ended up getting a divorce. The excitement and thrill of new and fun relationships. The temptations of workplace flirting, the degrees of flirtation, and when you’ve taken it too far. Coming out of a place of insecurity, emotional abuse, and lack of self love. The craving of wanting love and flirtation no matter where it is coming from, even when she knew it was wrong. Tune it to listen to the stories about bad vs. evil, and how we can grow from our mistakes.
In this episode we discuss the importance of sharing our story, the unedited, unfiltered one with the world. Kristijana tells us about her unique story that shaped her into who women she is today.
Kristjana’s story is proof that we are not stuck inside these boxes of who we think we have to be. Having the courage to create our own path, designing our own future, and turning pain into purpose.
We as humans have the ability to turn our struggle into progress. We are bigger than the obstacles in our life, our struggles don’t have to define us, if we don’t let them.
Tune in to find inspiration to create a better life for yourself.
A story of infidelity and the roles each individual involved play in it. Although sometimes it’s hard to admit, all three parties involved play a role. Most will find, like in Kristjana case, it starts off small, starts with outside validation, such as “you look really beautiful today.”
We find ourselves looking for outside sources, other than our relationship to fill up our cup. We don’t even realize the road we’re on until it’s too late.
As time goes on relationships build and feelings grow stronger.
Tune into the podcast to see how what starts off small eventually crosses the line.
There are two things that I strongly believe should happen before marriage—sex and living with the person that you want to spend your life with before the vows have been exchanged. It is so important for two people who are going to be together to live together before marriage. The reason I say that is because I strongly feel that one really, truly has to know who he or she is going to be with day in and day out for the rest of their lives if the person plans to spend their life with that person until death do them part. Committing to live with another person for life is no small decision. Everyone is not compatible to live with. It’s best not to be surprised if you can avoid it. By living together before, you can gauge what you are willing and not willing to put up with and compromise on and learn a rhythm of living together so that there is harmony and no huge learning curve right after the high of the honeymoon.
The first time going to a gynecologist can be nerve wracking but that’s normal. Do your research. Ask loved ones for recommendations. Decide if you feel comfortable with a female or male doctor. That is your choice. You must feel comfortable going to the practitioner that you will be visiting on a regular basis. It’s important to have that trust and be comfortable with someone you will be exposing yourself to. Let them know if you prefer small talk or not if you find that one or the other is more calming during your visits. Establish a healthy relationship with your practitioner from the get go so that everyone is on one accord and the anxiety of visiting the gynecologist dwindles.
