Top 5 Posts About Relationships

Aug 19, 2015 | Mind, Personal Development, Relationships, Spirit

High Fidelity recently became available on Netflix. It’s one of my favorite movies (perhaps even in my top 5?). One of the recurring themes throughout the movie is that John Cusack’s character, Rob, is constantly discussing Top 5 lists.

It inspired me to start my own “Top 5” series. Today, I give you:

1. Three Ways to Cut the Cord on a Toxic Relationship

In reality, there’s really only one way to end a toxic relationship – LEAVE. But gathering the courage to do so can be difficult. You have to come to an understanding with yourself about what’s holding you there and in some ways, you have to put your own well-being above your significant other’s.

5. Soulmates

Some people say we each have a soulmate and they are “the one” for us. Other people say we have many soulmates, and still others say there is no such thing as a soulmate, for we are all soulmates. So who’s definition is correct?

My first reaction to the reading was WOW. Your words captured a theme woven into my life right now. The reading has emboldened me to take back my power and inspired me to research some books, get back to meditating and provided a focus.
