Great content. I'd really love to transcribe your podcasts. People who are deaf, hard-of-hearing, non-native speakers, or suffer from auditory neuropathy spectrum disorder may have trouble following a fast conversation. Transcription provides an avenue for them to absorb everything you are putting out. My email is vickies2cents@gmail.com. Thank you.

Just believe in God and dream big and when it doesn't happen it wasn't the right dream. =) circular logic is so inspiring aka there is no plan but if it helps you stay positive then believe whatever you need to

So many truths in this episode, thank you Iyanla & Opera. Also for everyone who shared and was willing to be vulnerable. Giving yourself permission, accepting grace + that we've already been punished that we don't need to continue to punish ourselves. We have the choice + responsibility for our responses...so powerful 💜

when people show you who they are, trust them. don't paint them a different color. don't justify sb's disproportionate anger as only the effect of the situation. don't wait for the 29th time. believe what people show you the first (or maybe second or third) time. but the thing is, don't give people the benefit of the doubt many times. are you seeking validation in your relationship/ marriage or do you really feel excited about it? too many times, people stay in toxic relationships just because of that tiny little potential they believe still exists. you don't see it because you don't WANT to. because if you see it then you have to sth about it and ... do you know what to do about it? I think not. controlling behavior manifests in all aspects of life. allow people to show you who they are and believe them. stop expecting them to be sb different. if toxic, leave them. no fuss. no potential seeking. no change expecting. just leave. ps: I am thinking," what is wrong with keeping finances secret?" and why should a person keep his/ her finances secret?

lowering your standards because you think a better person won't show up. myths: I need sb to complete my life. you complete you. don't just worry about them liking you. worry equally about you liking them. get your shit together. create a really good and quality life for yourself when are single so you won't have to lower your standards just to find a relationship. date SB who is not intimidated by and jealous of your success. date sb who will cherish your success and be your first cheer leader. don't date sb's potential instead of their reality. everyone has potential. the important thing, however, is whether that potential has been realized or not. see the reality. you will be able to realize high quality mate potential only if you are one. game recognize game.
