Today, Kait and Carlos discuss the lies that are holding you back not only from your calling but even your dating life.
Could you tell us a bit about yourself?
You mention in your book that you spent some time at a retreat and healing center called “onsite”… I would love to hear more about how therapy has worked for you!
In my new book “Thank You for Rejecting Me”, I talk about the “dreaded F Word” (failure). Have you ever personally been affected by labeling yourself or having others label you as a failure?
You talk about breaking “the agreement with the lie”. How do you go about doing that?
How do we discern between which voices we’re letting in?
What is your final nugget of dating advice?
Brittney talks about the importance of mental health and how past traumas can trigger anxiety and dating.
Mike discusses what codependency is, how to avoid it, how to recognize it, and why we do it.
Kait and JD discuss the dangers of dating someone when you see "potential" in them and also discuss missionary dating and how that could potentially be problematic.
Abi and Justin discuss how they overcame shame from their past and restored relationships with themselves first.
