Living Fully Alive Podcast available on Apple Podcast, Google Podcast, Spotify, and Youtube


Sometimes you don’t need to be dating, you need to be healing.
— lindsley brooks

On this episode, join Mary and Lindsley as they discuss their adventures in dating! Last week we talked about how to have intimacy with yourself first and then how to show up as your true self in order to create healthy connections. But what about dating? How many of us have bounced from relationship to relationship, seeing the same patterns showing up every time, and wondering how do we stop this? We are in a culture obsessed with dating. The thought of being alone for many is our worst fear. We find ourselves constantly looking for someone to fill a void and make us happy, only to be disappointed over and over again. Often times we are attracting exactly what we are. Two half people coming into a relationship won’t make a whole. Having to heal alongside someone else is much harder than healing alone. We will attract healthy partners when we do the work to get healthy ourselves.

How can we enter into a relationship from a place that is conscious and mindful instead of repeating past patterns and cycles? Often our unhealthy relationship patterns will show up in different ways in different relationships. We need time alone, to learn ourselves. To be comfortable with ourselves. To learn our needs and our wants. To heal. When we get alone and know ourselves well we can make decisions from a solid sense of self. 

When we do the work in order to bring our whole self into a relationship, we will attract someone who is also a whole self.

Even when we show up as our best self in our relationships, even when we spend time by ourselves and do the work, we will still have things that will get triggered. This is because there are somethings that can only be healed inside a relationship. If you choose someone who is conscious, present, and doing their own work you can work through so much together.
