Summary of the episode 

What does it mean to be emotionally available for a relationship? In some cases, wanting a relationship does not necessarily mean to be available to have one. Stereotypes tend to play an important role when it comes to face what we want in a relationship or how we want to experience it. Recognizing if we are open and available is the foundation to what comes late in our life. 


It is up to us to know if we are ready to have a love relationship and not other’s responsibility.  Owning our feelings and emotions makes us available for new relationships, love that actually reflects what we want for us. It is necessary to find out who we are, what we want because we need to understand who we are before we commit to somebody else. Which are our boundaries? What do we want to experience?, and how do we want to feel? 


Every single person that comes in our life is a soulmate. There is always something to learn, and we need to be able to decode that to find the learning or healing behind that relationship and understand that it is part of our journey. It will help us be present and enjoy the present time. 


Key Takeaways

  • 1- If we are not connected to ourselves, then we don’t know what we are looking for.
  • 2- You are supposed to have boundaries when in a relationship.
  • 3- Money and relationships are catalysts to personal development.
  • 4- We still need to feel safety, love and belonging. 
  • 5- Sometimes, we need to have difficult conversations
