There are many indications that it might be time to call it quits in your relationship, but it doesn’t mean you have to split up. In fact, listen with your partner if you think you may be experiencing relationship hiccups so that you can discuss what can be done instead of just throwing in the towel. [Read more…]
Is love enough? Will it overcome anything that happens in your life?
Financial struggles, family problems, arguments, abuse and more… will your faith in love be enough to get you through the tough times? I read a letter from a young man who wonders if love is enough to get through anything. To add a bit of challenge on top of that, what if that love is only one-sided? [Read more…]
Jealousy is a multi-faceted beast that can motivate you to say or do things that you may not normally say or do. It involves many emotions and can run (and ruin) your life if you don’t address the real reasons you get jealous.
Sometimes a fantasy is created in your head and you become jealous based on what may not even exist. Other times, there is hard data to prove that what you’re jealous about is real and should be investigated further (or acted upon). Is there a good reason to get jealous?
Is there a way to heal from this feeling? I drill into jealousy quite a bit in this episode.
In segment two, I read a letter from someone who asks why the holidays bring out the worst in people. So many families get together and so many of those get-togethers can be quite dysfunctional. Is there that one person in your family that just seems to ruin the moment?
It can be hard to honor yourself in front of people who’ve known a version of you all their life, especially when you’ve done a lot of inner work. Can you be in integrity with yourself even in front of your toughest crowd: Family?
During the conclusion of the show, I talk about a letter that I received from someone who takes responsibility for his father’s debt because he believes if he hadn’t been born, his father wouldn’t be in debt. So he now holds the guilt of being a burden to his father. That sounds like something we need to heal right away!

What do you do when your partner wants to spend more time away from home than with you? Is that a sign that there’s something wrong in the relationship? Is there a more serious issue, perhaps they don’t feel safe with you?
In the first segment, I read a letter from a man who missed his fiance’. She would go out drinking with friends and family and he would be home alone trying not to be offended or hurt. As she spent less time at home, he got more concerned but also gave her the space she asked for. Soon, the wedding was called off and she was moving out.
What went wrong? What could he have done differently? [Read more…]
Toxic relationships: Friends, family, coworkers, and more – What can you do if you can’t get away from them? Do you even know how to get away from them? How can you continue a relationship when you have no choice but to be with a toxic person? This episode gets into how to deal with toxic people in your life.
Also, I read what a reviewer said about my show: Stay Away!
What do you think, should you stay away? I’m not here to defend the show or tell you what to listen to, I’d rather you come to your own conclusion and make the decision from there. I’m honored when someone takes the time to provide reviews for the show, even bad ones, it tells me they actually care about their own personal growth and want the best for themselves. Plus, they are genuinely expressing themselves, something I promote and encourage everyone to do!
