We're back with a brand new episode here on Heart of Dating and friends... today's episode is raw and vulnerable as we talk about real emotions when it comes to fighting feelings of self-hatred.
We brought out Sammi and Spencer Robbins on the show today to share their own experiences when it comes to fighting feelings of self-hatred and freeing themselves from it.
Sammi and Spencer run a life coaching business/ministry called Alive & Free helping predominantly christian women heal from self-hatred, shame, and past pain so they can attract a godly man and step into a thriving marriage. They have worked with more than 2000 women and they are still on a process to experience unconditional love in every area of their lives and relationship.
Spencer and Sammi met each other after attending the same ministry school and were married two years later. They had both individually been on an extensive healing process for years. Sammi started Alive & Free a few years ago walking women through 1-1 coaching and it quickly grew into a combination of services including group coaching, courses, and community. Their team is more than 30 people now and they are impacting more people than they ever thought possible.
Although Sammi and Spencer are leaders in their space, they are more involved in their own process and healing than they ever have been. They still hold onto the belief that they’re messy kids that are learning to let love in.
In “Thank You For Rejecting Me” I talk a lot about self-hatred. What are some ways self-hatred has plagued you in your life, and what are some of layers (big traumas, little traumas) that led you into those self-hating narratives?
You talk about numbing your pain as a coping mechanism. Could you tell us more about that?
Could you talk about your healing journey?
What is your final nugget of dating advice?
