When you are being used in a relationship, you may notice something feels off, and you may even pinpoint the things he’s doing to trigger you, but the scary truth is that you also may not notice these things.
In this episode, we’re talking about red flags you cannot ignore, why it’s important to make accurate assessments of yourself first, and all the ways you’re going to be able to take back your power and never blindly hand it over again.
If you’re dating, in a relationship, or debating if it’s time to go or not, this episode is for you. No one wants to be used in a relationship or taken advantage of wasting time with the wrong person. The key takeaway in this video is that taking back your power comes down to knowing that your ability to assess yourself, your feelings and the situations, decide for yourself, and honor your boundaries are all part of your superpower and badassery!
