If you're an adult you've got history, and it impacts the way you act in relationships moving forward. Learn how to talk about what you're carrying with you in this episode with Julie and Gina.
“If you're an adult you come with life experiences, and that's not always a bad thing."
"There are patterns we've picked up and stories we tell about ourselves through our relationships. And that's what we're bringing."
"My ex said I'm manipulative, am I really a manipulator?"
"Are there ways for you to shift your baggage?"
"A lot of what I see breaks down really easily into attachment style differences."
"Your baggage might be the stories you tell."
"When it's unresolved, that's when we see it come up in our relationships moving forward."
"I have trust issues."
