Tell Them How You Feel! (Even When It Sucks)
2021 Feb 0610m 9s
Telling people how I feel has always been a struggle for me, especially in romantic relationships. In this episode of Growing Pains, I tell a super vulnerable story about when I was left heartbroken two days after telling my ex that I loved him. Since that relationship, I've learned a lot about the importance of speaking my mind and being honest in ANY relationship. I used to hold back so much in fear of being rejected, embarrassed, or not liked. By holding back this much I've sacrificed not being myself. It wasn't until that breakup that I realized enough is enough. Since then, I committed to being more confident in myself within relationships. For two years now, I am the happiest I have ever been in a romantic relationship with my current partner. I really think it's because I've learned to communicate, speak my mind, and really be myself. In this episode, I share the importance of telling people how you feel, even when it's difficult.
Introducing Growing Pains
2021 Jan 263m 36s
Introducing Growing Pains...This is the podcast that is going to talk about all the things growth-related, especially in your 20s. I’m going to talk about the not-so-glamorous side of growth like the breakdowns, uncomfortable conversations, self-doubt, and well, you get my point. Growth can be hard and painful, I get it! Hence the name growing pains. I want you to know that as much as I’m here to spill and share all the not so pretty parts of growth, I’m also going to be equally sharing and talking about the really wonderful things that come out of painful experiences, heartbreak, and setbacks. The most beautiful part about growth is that there almost always comes a time in our lives where we can look back at that thing that may have caused us pain, or sadness, and we end up realizing that we have made it through, we have GROWN.
