Are you an empathetic person? If so, you may have run into this problem before. I sure used to before I learned some healthier boundaries. When you take on another person‘s emotions or baggage as your own, it is very easy to lose yourself in the process. Where many empathetic people have a difficult time turning on and off their empathy, it is necessary to a certain extent or else you run the risk of ruining your own life and happiness. So, is your empathy preventing you from living your life? I would love to hear from you about this episode or anything else that is on your mind. You can reach me at HeidiDellaire.com or LoveWideOpen.com If you are interested in my book, Roots and Tendrils, which is my journey back from being too empathetic towards others and not enough towards myself, you can learn more on HeidiDellaire.com If you are interested in working with me for Heart Space Sessions, reach out through HeidiDellaire.com.
People with a growth mindset have an underlying belief that their learning and intelligence can grow with time and experience. According to Dweck, when a student has a fixed mindset, they believe that their basic abilities, intelligence, and talents are fixed traits.
Let's talk about what it takes to have a growth mindset and a positive mindset to move forward in life and learn new things. You can reach me at LoveWideOpen.com or HeidDellaire.com If you are listening on the Anchor App, you can send me voice messages that may be used in future episodes.

So many of my clients find themselves in this place in life. Hell, I found myself in this place in life once. We wonder who the hell we are. Why did life get so off track? Is it too late? Can I change it? Do I have the power within myself to do something else? Well, I am here to tell you, Yes! You do still have power to change your life, you just need to WANT to CHOOSE to change it. It's all up to you. If you would like to speak with me about this episode or want to work with me, reach out to me through the contact form at LoveWideOpen.com or HeidiDellaire.com. Have an amazing day and I am happy to be part of your journey. Sending lots of love. ~Heidi
I had the pleasure of hearing Elizabeth Gilbert speak on the last leg of her book tour for City of Girls at Memorial Church at Harvard last week. I got up and asked a question about something that Liz talks about a lot...being love in the room. Liz has been an inspiration to me in many ways and has been a part of my journey. Her book Big Magic was the push I needed to understand that Love Wide Open was a big magic idea. I now teach people about love after learning to love myself again. My own book was my love letter to myself and a healing journey. I now coach people on heart journeys. Thanks Liz for all that you do to remind us that love is messy and beautiful and that life was meant to be lived. There are several powerful quotes from Liz in this episode along with the Derek Walcott poem, Love After Love. I also wrote an article about it for my Heart Space Lessons blog on LoveWideOpen.com. You can find it here https://bit.ly/2Ya3JxN. If you would like to reach out to me or work with me, you can contact me at LoveWideOpen.com or HeidiDellaire.com Sending lots of love. ~Heidi
How do you take control of your own life and make it what you want it to be? How do you become who you want to be? We are capable of becoming anything we want to be. It takes practice and diligence. I work with so many clients who get stuck in a self-limiting belief mindset and can't see that they have the ability to CHOOSE what happens next in their lives. They have the responsibility right in their own hands. Understanding that I was capable of anything allowed me to finish my book, Roots and Tendrils.

We have all been through it. We have made mistakes. We have hurt people. What do we do when someone won't forgive us for what we have done to them? Is it our responsibility to try to make them understand and forgive us or do we need to forgive ourselves in the midst of taking responsibility for our actions and say that we are sorry? I would love to hear more from you. You can find me at HeidiDellaire.com or LoveWideOpen.com. If you are interested in working with me for Heart Space Coaching, reach out through the websites above.

Substance abuse is a topic that comes up a lot with clients, whether it be their personal addiction or the addiction of someone they love. Whether the addict in your life is a partner, a parent, a sibling or a friend, maintaining a relationship with a person with a substance abuse issue will present challenges for you. If you love someone who abuses drugs or alcohol, their dependence becomes an unavoidable part of your life.

Words have power. We can either use negative words or positive words. Negative words hold us back. Positive words propel us forward. The language we use with ourselves internally and with the world at large have a major impact on who we become. They can keep us struggling or they can empower us to strive for high achievement and a better life for ourselves and the world. There is power in getting into a routine or habit of positive self-talk. Let me know what your words of positivity are going to be for yourself. If you would like to work with me, I can be reached at LoveWideOpen.com or HeidiDellaire.com.

Sometimes we aren't even aware that we have a negative internal dialogue that can also spill out to the Universe and become our reality. Negative words and thoughts become what we are. If we believe we aren't good enough, then we aren't. The things we think and speak are important to our stagnation or our growth. Let's discuss those negative words and phrases and touch upon how to slowly shift that around. If you are listening on Anchor, you can send me a message via the app, if you are listening on Apple Podcasts, I would love your honest review.

If you knew you had one week to live, what would you do differently with your time? If it is different than your every day life, it is time to dig deeper.

Why are we so quick to fear change? Why do we get anxious about the things we can't control? Change, often, brings us amazing periods of growth. So what must we do to embrace change and put fear aside? I would love your feedback on this episode or any other episode. If you are listening on Apple Podcasts or another platform that allows reviews, I would also love your review. I can be reached at LoveWideOpen.com or HeidiDellaire.com.
So many of us push away our discomforts and opt to stay only in our comfort zones. What we are ultimately doing is pushing away those things that we need to work through from past hurts, traumas or faulty beliefs. When we lean into the discomfort and allow ourselves to heal our "stuff", we free ourselves and allow are hearts to be more open. And when our hearts are more open, so are our minds and vice versa. Don't forget to subscribe and review if your listening platform allows it. Thank you.

Many of you have heard me talk about chasing joy after getting out of a toxic relationship. I have made a few videos about it on both the Love Wide Open Channel on YouTube and also Love Wide Open on Facebook. How do you do it? How do you rebuild your life after losing yourself and giving yourself away to a toxic connection with someone else. It takes a lot of hard work and effort but it starts with getting back into doing the things you love and spending time with the people who love you. There are numerous articles about it on LoveWideOpen.com. If you have any questions about this episode or want to work with me, I can be reached through either LoveWideOpen.com or HeidiDellaire.com.
Just because you love someone doesn't mean that they are going to be able to receive it. You can't save someone with your love. Only they can save themselves. When we squeeze too hard, we can squash the love we are trying to give away and then it just becomes toxic for both parties involved. You can find me on LoveWideOpen.com or HeidiDellaire.com. Please reach you about this episode or something you would like to hear about.

We can learn a lot about ourselves and society in general if we choose to embrace the shadow self instead of ignore it or make it "not" part of who we actually are. Listen in as I discuss how embracing our shadow actually allows for us to be more compassionate with ourselves and others. Feel free to reach out to discuss this topic at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. You can find out more about my book Roots and Tendrils at HeidiDellaire.com.
Friendship is such a beautiful testiment and witness to who we really are in the eyes of another. Friendship can be fleeting or last beyond our own passing. Join me on a journey through what true friendship means through the words of one of my favorite poets, David Whyte. He has been one of the inspirations in my own writing and publishing of my poetry book, Roots and Tendrils.
As we are moving through life, why does it become harder to find or express the joyful moments in life like when we were children? Where are you #chasingjoy? How are you finding joy in your life?

It's for anyone who has ever loved or been loved.
We have all had painful moments that stay with us. Time can often heal these wounds and painful moments if we let it. In this episode, I discuss a break-up I went through awhile back and how with time, the pain has lessened. I also read a poem from my book, Roots and Tendrils (available on Amazon) called Heart Cleanse. Heart Cleanse is a piece that talks about pain and releasing it to allow it to form a scar. How are you working through your pain? How are you also seeking out the joyous moments to help you heal? k9bb4k4r
We have all been there. We have been on both sides. We have been the one who is in pain and someone says something that just hurts your heart in their kindest attempt to help the situation. We have also been the one that is feeling so much need to try to help the situation that we end up saying something the discounts the pain that someone else is in. Let's always work hard to just stay in presence with someone who is in pain. Often, our presence is all that is needed. Reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org with feedback
We hear a lot about self-love these days. Let's talk about what it is and what it isn't. Self-love is an individual journey. I understand that journey.

Have you ever wondered why you can't stop thinking about someone you were involved with or why you hold on to certain items of theirs? When we get emotionally and phyically involved with a person in a romantic relationship, we create energetic soul ties to that person. It's important to clear those soul ties so that both parties may move on with their lives. Listen to understand chord cutting and why it is important. This can also be done with anyone you have an energetic bond with. My book, Roots and Tendrils, is a journey through romantic relationships that ultimately leads to self love. You can find it on Amazon. Always feel free to reach out with questions at firstname.lastname@example.org
Does the universe provide us with signs of when it is time to let go of the things that hurt our heart and our soul? Why yes, it does. Tune in to understand the signs that come to us when it is time to let go of either big things or little things, ie., relationships, a job, an idea.

What is it in us that makes us lash out at others when we can't sit in our own discomfort? Why do we think it is an act of strength or power to tear someone else down when we don't even take the time to understand a situation? We have to dig deep within ourselves to understand why we, as humans, stop seeing other people as human beings with feelings. Why do we stop acting with empathy and compassion when we are in a state of fear?
