If you're ready to let go of your past, build your confidence, and move forward then this is the podcast for you. Dr. Patricia Shaw is a bestselling author and Relationship Coach who helps women overcome deeply rooted beliefs that sabotage their relationship success so they can make decisions with clarity, be confident with their choices while living committed to who they are without sacrificing their values.
In today's episode I'm answering the following questions:
1. How did I get here?
2. Why can’t I shake this man?
3. Why do I keep going back to him?
I'm defining the difference between lust and love and how you can let go of a toxic relationship and set yourself up for true love.
How did I get here? Why can’t I shake this man? He treats me like less than a person, but I keep going back to him. Those are the words I repeated in my head for the course of our relationship. What started as a childlike love affair ended as a tumultuous tornado.
It was fall of 1989, my junior year of college; the boys’ basketball team was playing our rival school. It was a typical Friday night filled with fun and adventure, but I knew something was different about this Friday, I could just feel it in the atmosphere. I had on my favorite pair of Levi jeans, a red top, and my brown penny loafers. I always dressed to impress, but I was in rare form that Friday night, the Friday that would forever be embedded in my head. The Friday that made me wish I were dead.

Welcome to the Soul of a Woman Podcast, I’m so glad you joined me. I’m your host, Dr. Patricia Shaw and this podcast is all about helping women have healthy relationships. As a Relationship Coach, I help my clients overcome deeply rooted beliefs that sabotage their relationship success so they can make decisions with clarity, be confident in who they are without sacrificing their values.
So, if being in a healthy relationship or maintaining one is of interest to you, then stick around, you’ll be glad you did.
Around social media, I’m known as the Soul Ties Coach because I believe when two people have a soul connection rather than just a physical connection, then their relationship can go deeper than most can ever imagine.
Now, exactly how do I know this? I’m glad you asked!
I wrote a book a few years ago titled, Soul Ties, Unchian My Heart and this book is near and dear to my heart because in it I share some of the things I went through as a result of being physically attracted to someone during my dating season and NO hunty, I was not waiting, but I should have been and that’s part of the reason I started this podcast, to help you spot the red flags so you don’t try and limbo your way under them or hurdle your way over them, or be like some women I know and convince your way into accepting the unacceptable.
Yes, gurl, Dr. Shaw got you. I’m the coach who really cares, just ask my clients.
I’m going to use this podcast as a platform to help you safely navigate out of the relationship ocean and on deck of my marriage cruiseliner where I’ve been sipping on Arnold Palmers and please don’t get your dainties in a wad cause that’s not alcohol, it’s tea and lemonade mixed; well at least that’ how I drink it.
So that you can get to know me a wee bit, I’m sharing my story from in my book, Soul Ties, Unchain My Heart and please don’t judge me but even if you do, that was in my BC days (Before Christ) and I’ve been delivered today since the Lord, ok, Patricia, get back on track.
By the way, please make a mental note for yourself so when you get your copy of the book you won’t say, where is the part when she said, just note, that I will be doing my own narrating so you’re looking for me to read it like they do on audible, it’s not gonna happen…..so beware.
I’d love for you to read along with me and you can get your own copy of my book from my website at www.womenofexcellence.biz/books.
Just know, if you order the ecopy, I will add you to my email list and just like that you’ll have a new friend.
How awesome is that?
Let’s get started!
