Raising your standards & improving your relationship skills. Because you can do better, sis.

S2E11 | Love is a Drug

This week I have a conversation with my friend who shares some of the lessons he thought he learned, but ended up repeated in later relationships. I think a lot of us are familiar with rushing into a relationship, being overcome with the rush of emotion that comes with falling for someone, and not necessarily learning our lesson the first time around, so I’m sure you’ll be able to relate to some, if not all, of Justin’s experience.

Justin mentions a few tools he’s learned through couples counseling that I know I want to use in my love life going forward. I’ll link to the references in the show notes so you can get the wisdom as well.

More information about some of the tools we talk about on this episode can be found below.
