The road to self-love often comes with both endings and new beginnings. Yet, the ends tend to undo us and make us doubt our worth, abilities, and self-esteem, especially when talking about our most intimate relationships.

In continuing our search for building self-love, I sat down with my friend, Laura Patricia Martin, the host of the Happy and Healing Podcast, as she and I moved through what it takes to have full ownership of ourselves, self-love, steady relationships, and then we leaned into the important of self-inquiry.

This conversation is filled with tools to help you shift beyond the negative, trying relationships and ultimate ends to finding yourself in the greatest sense of self-understanding, and it originally aired on the Healing to Happy Podcast hosted by Laura Patricia Martin. It is my pleasure to share it now with you.
