Single You "The Podcast"

By Reka Robinson
In September of 2020, after 18 years in radio, I stepped down from my full time job— to focus on what God is calling me to do in this season. I’m called to guide women who need to hear that singleness is not a punishment and you are worthy regardless of your relationship status. I’m the Founder of Single You Academy & the host of this Podcast! ⁣ I help the ambitious millennial single woman discover her worth so that she can stop tying her identity and worth to men and stop being a man pleaser.⁣ If this sounds like you... then you're in the right place!

20. Do good men actually slide into DMs with Shanice. Her Fiancé did.
Sick of being played? Shanice explains how she got ghosted after she drove 2 hours to meet up with a guy who never showed. Through her story she shares 4 tips on how to better gage if a man is playing you or not. (1) Stop giving men the benefit of the doubt. (2) Those stupid rules you make for you not to come off as “annoying” to a man —stop with the rules. (3) Ask all the questions. Being afraid to ask the questions puts you in situations you didn’t ask for. (4) Listen to your gut. Stop looking for ‘evidence.’ Why don’t you believe you? And then because of that story she met her fiancé and yes, he slid into her DMs.  Listen to Shanice has she encourages women who are still in their single season.

19. What I Wish the Church Taught Single Women (With Pastor Marlando Jordan)
Why is their so much pressure in the church to get married? How should we be dating?  "What you believe is what you do." - Pastor Marlando Jordan The books we suggested you can buy here.  The Right One by Frank Martin and Jimmy Evans Relationships Goals by Mike Todd Relational Intelligence by Dharius Daniels "So what you believe is what you do. So if somebody says, "I believe it's important to pray and talk to God every day and I believe I should read my Bible every day." Then the lady should say, "Well, do you do that?" If he says, "No, I don't." So then an honest answer for him would be, "I don't believe it's important to read my Bible and pray every day because I don't do it." Some people try to separate their beliefs from their behavior, and you cannot. You cannot separate your belief from your behavior. - Marlando Jordan Pastor Marlando’s desire is to bring the message of reconciliation to those who do not have a relationship with the Lord and to establish, equip and empower believers to be radical disciples of Christ. His enthusiasm, passion and love for God and people, brings a unique and bold style of teaching and preaching. Marlando Jordan currently serves as the Senior Pastor Sozo Church in Kennewick, Washington. Pastor Marlando and his wife Megan live in Pasco, WA, they’ve been married since 2003 and are the proud parents of their two children, Isaiah and Annabelle. ------ Sis, let's talk. He can't say he loves you and is treating you like yesterday's trash or heck today's. He can not say that. He may want to love you but I'd argue he has zero idea what love is. How many books has he read on love? How many people with happy marriages has he talked to about love? How about you? When you want to be a doctor or a lawyer you know you have to go to school for that. You know exactly where to go but where do you go if you want to be in love? Where are we learning what love is? [ Single You Academy ] How are we learning to have healthy relationships? Also you can't say you know your worth and continue to be treated like crap. You are your behavior and your behavior is showing that you allow the revolving door of dysfunctional relationships. Your behavior is showing you- you tie your identity to men and he's your world, not you. What are you getting out of that? Whenever you're ready to discover your worth so that you can stop tying your identity to men. I'm ready for you.  Did you listen?

[ Tip ] Finding Purpose Before Marriage because a Man Doesn't Actually Complete You (With Pastor Marlando Jordan)
Do you value yourself? Do you know who you are sis? Are you proud of you?  Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he. - Proverbs 29:18 In finding your purpose: 1. Prayer. Ask God to reveal to you, who you are.  2. Searching your heart. Ask yourself the same question. Who are you in Christ? What is your identity? Who are you outside of dating, a man and your kids?  What are you reading, listening and what company are you keeping?  “Your eye is like a lamp that provides light for your body. When your eye is healthy, your whole body is filled with light. But when your eye is unhealthy, your whole body is filled with darkness. And if the light you think you have is actually darkness, how deep that darkness is! - Matthew 6: 21-23 "So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God." - Romans 10:17 How is your heart?  "It’s not what goes into your body that defiles you; you are defiled by what comes from your heart". - Mark 7:15 "Create in me a clean heart, O God. Renew a loyal spirit within me". - Ps. 51:10 "For in Christ lives all the fullness of God in a human body. So you also are complete through your union with Christ, who is the head over every ruler and authority." - Colossians 2:9-10  Did you listen?

18. Dai: On How She Got Over Her Abusive Ex and 'Found' Her Husband.
She writes:  Dig, isolate, ache from being lonely, GLOW.  Like many late 20-somethings I've had my share of failed relationships, the most prominent being an 8 year live-in one. "Common law married". I'm not gonna spend so much time on the particulars, but we weren't meant to be. For 6 months I spiraled and acted out every annoying and "smh" worthy moment that almost every woman has after a heavy breakup. Lately, I've seen it replayed in SO many young women, so I felt the need to write this post in hopes that if you do need it, it'll find you. When the relationship ended, there was definitely a point in time where I felt that I might possibly die lol. I was 25 so of course that didn't take much, but in my defense, 8 years is a very serious commitment. Real marriage was an actual goal at the time, and after so much time of living together all we were missing was the wedding and the paper work. At first I made the mistakes that I see other women make every single day and I cringe from the memory. I cried, I prayed, I tried to "make myself whole" in hopes that he would see what a "good woman" I was. Constantly trying to prove my worth, thinking I was growing when really I just wanted him to see. I tried to mimic the women's patterns that I thought he desired and felt further and further away from myself. I was lost. My entire identity was wrapped up in who "we" had been and I missed it so much that I didn't even stop to realize that there was no possible way that there was ever a "we". There was hardly even a "me". She is Dai and you can read the rest here. Dai can also be found on IG @ _dai_dreaming Did you listen?

[ Tip ] Sis, Slow Down The Dating Process with DJ Robinson
[ Your Wednesday Tangible Tip ] She writes: I met a guy last weekend and we slept together. He hasn't text me back until now. We had a good time, he kissed me (first) and it was in front of someone who's flirting with him while I was beside him. I just felt over the moon because no one has ever done that for me. But I realized he never asked me any questions about me. So it got me thinking... does he want to know about me or did he just want a one night stand. I didn't want to be his one night stand, my intention was to date. I don't have to be in a rush for commitment but I like the guy. I don't have any expectations but I still want to keep an open mind for whatever could potentially happen. Should I text him again. Uuugh I'm frustrated because I don't know what to say and what to do? I felt bad for easily sleeping with him. Me: It's so easy to get excited when a man 'picks' us but we have to slow down our feelings. "feeling over the moon" doesn't mean he's the guy for you/us. We have to slow that down. Unfortunately he sounds like a guy who just wants to have you around when he has time. He'll string you along and give you just enough to keep you "interested." Don't ever let a man save you for later. One thing I know for sure after truly understanding that Singleness Is Not A Punishment is that there will be NO confusing when you come across a man that is 100% interested in you/no games.

Topic: So I’m with this guy who doesn’t work. He doesn't want a 9-5 but I get up five days a week to work. Then I have school on Saturday while he’s at home in my bed and all he does do is clean and take care of my kids when I’m gone ...am I wrong that I want more? I hate that I’m doing this, is this really what I deserve? Am I settling? --- My name is Jeffrey Whittingham – I am a former Temple University football standout with a burning passion to help others succeed. Being born and raised in Atlantic City, New Jersey, socio-economic hardships and environmental woes made it difficult to remain optimistic about a brighter future.  I did not allow those difficulties to deter me from accomplishing my goals. In 2014, I became the first person from my immediate family to graduate from college. Since then, I have been relentlessly pursuing my goals, while at the same time, setting a positive example for the young men and women in my community.  The combination of my past experiences, present skills, leadership qualities and intellect, make me uniquely qualified to help mold the youth of our community to grow to their full potential. Growing up, it was difficult for me to see past my immediate circumstances.  Fortunately, football provided me with the optimism I needed to see beyond my present circumstances and elevate to the next level. My motivation to excel in football stemmed from my desire to prove to others in my community that it is possible to excel, despite growing up in an economically depressed area with little to no positive role models.  Today, my mission is to motivate the youth of my community to excel, despite any adversity and/or obstacle in their way. I want to be the light and optimism for someone who may not have the means to find it on their own Jeff can be reached @_jeffstruth

12. Stop Making it So Convenient For a Man to Date You. [ Here's How ] D. Irvin's journey back from that 10 year abusive relationship
Join Single You Academy Here: www.single-you.com/join Reka's IG = justmeReka D. Irvin's IG = @therealsupad ----------- Atlanta, GA (October 2020) - D’wayna Irvin, affectionately known as “D. Irvin”, is a woman who certainly lives up to her moniker. A product of New Orleans’ 9th Ward, the polarizing entrepreneur, influencer and author has experienced it all – from crime, fast money and near-death experiences, to betrayal and heartbreak – all in the name of love and loyalty. However, that way of life nearly destroyed hers, until she made a change for the better. Now, she shares her rollercoaster story of tragedy to triumph in her raw and uncut new book, When A D.A.B. Spills the Tea. What is a D.A.B, you ask? It is an acronym for the kind of woman often celebrated in rap songs. A woman who, against her better judgment, stays loyal and handles the dirty work for her significant other who usually ends up behind bars. It is the woman who sticks by a man’s side through good, bad and worse, jeopardizing her own future in the process. Yet, unlike in the movies, that loyalty typically doesn’t pan out the way many women imagine. “Love is a dangerous game, especially when living the street life,"  said D. Irvin.  “One of the biggest lessons I learned is to always put yourself first, because that is what others will do. You may be second to them, but you will never be first.” D. Irvin Came to this realization after finding herself entrenched in a long romantic relationship with a drug dealer. Like many young women in urban environments, she was mesmerized by the nice cars, clothes and money the lifestyle afforded. Also, this particular man was charming and manipulative. She risked her life for him, delivered packages for him, stayed loyal as he served time for nearly a decade – only for him to betray her. It was the darkest moment of her life. Suffering from anxiety, depression and even suicidal thoughts, D. Irvin had to rebound. She sought therapy to address her mental health, discovered her self-worth, and ultimately used the hustle she learned from the streets to chart her own course as a successful entrepreneur. Now, her goal is to show other women from similar situations how to do the same. When A D.A.B. Spills the Tea is about revealing the truth about life and love for a woman in the street life. Rarely are there happy endings with money, marriage and a family. Therefore, the book emboldens women to claim their power, set the standards for their own lives and to become real bosses by understanding how to make things happen for themselves. D. Irvin is bold and transparent in the book, revealing things most people might be ashamed of, however, she is a firm believer that one must come to grips with their past in order to move forward. Either way, readers will be shocked, entertained and educated by the hard truths and wisdom on each page. “A ‘D.A.B’ is a female that is willing to go above and beyond the call of duty to gain whatever it is she feels is attainable to her. It is more than for a man or in a relationship. It could be for your business,” D. Irvin said. “I want women to learn how to boss up on their own and take control of their lives. If they can learn from my story, I am happy and I have reached my goal.” To keep up with news and updates on everything D. Irvin, follow her on Instagram at @therealsupad. Her book, When A Real DAB Spills the Tea is available now and can be purchased on Amazon at https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08G7ZVW6N/ref=dp-kindle-redirect?_encoding=UTF8&btkr=1. xo Reka

11. "I Want to Be Valued First" Stacey J's Journey Back After that 5 Year Abusive Relationship
Learn from her story! One of the things that helped me heal from the pain I inflicted on myself by being with my abusive ex, was finding and learning from women who had been through what I went through. I loved feeling like I wasn't the only woman who made 'stupid' decisions for a man. I also was able to learn from those women. Here is what Stacey J. wrote on her Facebook:  I became single after a 5 year relationship ended in January 2020. What I once thought would end in married ended in a breakup. The breakup was needed in order for me to save myself. Not because of physical reasons but to save my mind, protect my peace, confidence and self esteem. There's nothing like being in a relationship that looks like love to later realize it's narcissistic control. No one thrives in this kind of relationships and it quickly becomes toxic. The sad part is we are the ones that allow it! Yep girlfriend it's on you. We stay because we feel like things will change, get better,  we pamper them and their feelings sometimes ignoring our own. But once I was gone I know the universe heard my internal cry and it delivered. That's when operation heal Stacey J began. I had to learn to accept, understand my role in this and rebuild my confidence. Now I'm happy to say that I am internally happy and my life has exploded like never before!! I have peace,  joy and I've tapped in to my higher self. I am not bitter I'm  better and I welcome love again but when the universe knows I'm ready. I have learned to truly enjoy me. Stop second guessing yourself girl and know what you want, deserve and willing to give without giving up yourself. Stacey's IG = @therealstaceyj and @live365.radio www.live365empowerment.com I hope in this episode you learn how to stop guessing yourself!  XO Reka Sign Up for Single You Academy Here:  IG = @justmeReka www.single-you.com/join

3. He never hit me. So how did I know my relationship was abusive?
#AskReka How did you concluded that your relationship was abusive? I think it's a word women struggle with because we're programmed to think abuse is JUST physical abuse.  Do you listen to my podcast and you think "I need more. I wish I had steps".... that's exactly what "Single You" is.  What is “Single You”? An online community and resource for single women. The primary purpose of “Single You” is to get you to a place of loving yourself. Knowing your worth and understanding that you’re worthy regardless of your relationship status. How do I help you with the above? By providing you real life conversations with women you can relate to via a curriculum, experts, workshops, tips, a community and more.

2. Why I stayed in that abusive relationship? Can you relate?
I didn't have a strong relationship with God until I hit about 34. I always believed in God and grew up in the church but (for me) because I didn't seek a true relationship with God. Because I didn't question the things I was told and not told, I began to rush and try to get into relationships. Which sadly set me up for failure. I was so naive and I thought that when a guy told me he loved me, he meant it.  Relationships don't have a "user manual" or do they?  Why did I stay? Why did I allow a man to treat me this way and what did I learn from it? Let's talk... "When you learn, you teach" - Maya Angelou  Singleness is not a punishment. It's not a season to endure, it's a life and a life worth living. You just have to design it! xo,  Reka = @justmeReka www.single-you.com

Sidenote: If you're listening to this after August 2020-- the videos will still be available for you to view in Single You once you become a member! Also the 1-month free promo is over.  #AskReka 👉🏽 Hey Reka, I have a question or thought that’s been on my mind, I find myself asking often, what’s worth it? So in relationships now days we have a list of red flags, which is a good tool, I feel like these times we are quick to tell people to leave relationships, to see the red flags and walk away. ⁣ Which I understand completely but we also see a lot of comments about “people don’t stay and work it out anymore” ...so where’s the line between making a relationship last for years and working thru differences and humanly character “flaws” mistakes etc. ⁣What's the difference in ...see a red flag and don’t waste your time, you deserve better mentality or work thru it. How do you know what to walk away from and what to use as growth in your relationship. When do you stay ---instead of walking away? I feel like the advice to “leave” is so quick these days, I’d love to hear your thoughts on it. xo Reka = @justmeReka www.single-you.com

[Trailer] What is "Single You" The Podcast?
Dropping every Thursday at 6a PST / 9a EST starting August 27, 2020 I intend to help you see that you have authority over your life.  No one gives us a manual when we are born. No one gives us a book of instructions for our birthday. Which is weird because don't you have an instruction manual for your TV, your car, and everything else that you do not know how to use at first. We're born, for the first time and we're just expected to be great at being human. We're given a name and expected to know how to operate as such. How are we supposed to know how to operate? How are we supposed to know how our mind works? How are we supposed to know how our body works? We do learn from others but the problem is most of us are learning from others that never took the time to learn themselves. For the most part they probably never knew you could learn "yourself", so, it's not their fault. Psychology 101 should be taught to us. We should have mandatory 'learn-how-to-be-a-human' classes starting at age 2. Like drivers-ed but human-ed. I'm not an expert at anything but I did start getting curious about life… my life. Which lead me to ask questions like: Why do we do the things we do? Why do we NOT do the things we want to do? That researching is paying off for me and I thought: what if I could help other women create their manual for their life? “When you learn, teach…” - Maya Angelou Please share this podcast if you can relate and if you think it can help someone else. It helps grow my audience and you can help me for free by sharing, rating and dropping comments/questions.  Thank you in advance!  Xo, Reka = @justmeReka www.single-you.com
