overthinking in dating

If you’re prone to overthinking in dating and relationships and create stories in your head, this video is for you.

Overthinking in dating can sabotage your relationship…before it even starts! If you over-analyze when you first start dating someone, listen to this client story. ‘Amy’ went on a great first date on a Saturday, and at the end of the date, the guy said he’d love to see her again. She was so excited for their second date. Sunday, he didn’t text or call. Monday, she waited all day to hear from him. Why isn’t he texting me back? Did I say or do something wrong on the date? He’s back on the app! Why would he go back on the app if we had such a great date? On Friday, he called to ask her out for Sunday, but by that time, she was so angry at him, she ended up pushing him away.

Without vulnerability in dating, there is no intimacy. In this video, you’ll hear about my first date with a man who was guarded from love.

This is a cautionary tale about the importance of vulnerability in dating and healing childhood wounds if you want to find love.

I met a man on a dating app. He was handsome, and his profile resonated with me. We started texting, and it seemed we had a lot in common. When I asked about the highlight of his day so far, he said he had a deep conversation with a good friend. A man with good friends who enjoys deep conversation? Those are values I admire. When he asked if I’d like to talk on the phone, I said, “I thought you’d never ask!”

people pleasing

Are you a people pleaser? In this video, I share 5 tips to help you overcome people pleasing and learn to say no!

People pleasing…what is it, why do we do it, and how do we stop?

You’re kind. You have a big heart. That’s fantastic! People with big hearts tend to give…and give..without boundaries. They tend to say YES when they mean NO. They tend to take on every volunteer job they’ve been asked to do.  Does this sound like you?

Many people-pleasers have trouble saying NO or asking for what they want and need. Needs? That’s needy, right? Nope. We all have needs, and when we don’t meet them, we are out of alignment with our true selves.

Maybe you have asked others for help, but when they didn’t reciprocate, you surrendered in frustration. “I’ll do it myself!” “I can’t depend on others!” And the resentment started to build…
