Society and Relationships
Society swears they have this definition to a tee. Everyone thinks they have the antidote when it comes to relationships, yet they don't wanna hear the truth . The funniest thing is they don't understand that relationships aren't just a significant other. This episode along wit episode 4 will get deep into the aspect society is afraid to talk about. Hints the non existent picture perfect families!!!

How can we give back to ourselves?
Its a well known fact that most of us know how to give freely with no consequence. However, when it comes to ourselves we hold back, we do less for ourselves, we literally forget how important our needs are at times. This blog is to get you to notice the problem and get on the road to correcting the problem. I will have a questions segment each show so feel free to ask questions of any topic that will be answered unanimously. Enjoy and remember always find your way back. :D
