If you’re wondering what in the world, you’re doing in a relationship that doesn’t fulfil you, you’re not alone.
A healthy relationship is not meant to drain you, de-motivate you or make you unhappy.
A healthy relationship doesn’t kill your dreams, silence your voice or make you feel insignificant.
The good news is that you don’t have to settle for a relationship, heck any relationship that doesn’t bring you joy, motivation or growth.
We don’t have forever, so settling for a soul sucking relationship should not be an option.
And I get it, it’s hard to break away from any relationship. It’s hard to make uncomfortable decisions. No joke, if it was easy, you would have done it already. If it was easy, no one would be in a bad relationship.
That’s because breaking up could carry some implications. It may mean you lose other friends who wouldn’t understand why you’re “giving up” on your relationship.
Breaking up may draw attention to you and if there’s anything you don’t want to do is rock the boat.
A client of mine was in a similar situation, she spoke about feeling lonely in her relationship - I share about not settling in this video.
Although she had been in a relationship for some time, her partner didn’t care about her feelings and didn’t acknowledge her.
And even though she was unhappy and unfulfilled, she stayed and didn’t say much because she was “grateful” to have a relationship.
?Nobody should have to settle for an unhealthy relationship. Everyone deserves to be be loved, supported and believed in.
?If that’s not your reality right now and you’re afraid to rock the boat even though you want better, it’s time to look at your deeper truth. Why are you settling?
Your boundaries determine how others will treat you. Whether it's in your relationships or at work.

Sometimes we choose to be brave and step outside our comfort zone, only to be rejected.
But if you're going to continue to show up courageously in the face of uncertainty or if you choose to pursue goals that make you come alive, learning how to manage rejection so it doesn't stop you is key.
I share how a new mindset is important. The story you tell yourself following a rejection would either keep you from moving forward or propel you.
Watch today's video to see how.
What steps are you taking to show up more bravely?
I'm rooting for you.

Today I want to talk about an issue that is so prevalent in society. Our inability to speak up. This post has been inspired by this year's theme for international women’s day Choose to challenge. If you’re not already doing so, it’s time you begin to speak up. So with this video I’m going to address not only how to speak up against gender inequality but how to speak up in general for yourself, against injustice and when you need to demand more.
The problem with speaking up is that it carries a lot of consequence and as a result people prefer the comfort of silence than the cost of speaking up. In speaking up you could risk exclusion from a group you belong to who may no longer feel you are for them. You could be seen as being difficult - a label we don’t like to wear. You could also risk losing your friends who maybe now no longer see you as being on the same page as them and in some cases you could suffer financial loss.
