A Date With Darkness Podcast

Oct 17, 2022

When we find ourselves in relationships that don't serve our needs or may be abusive, our partners can have attachment wounds. Shena Tubbs, creator of Black Girls Heal joins us today to discuss love addiction, love avoidance, and love deprivation. If you find that you fall in love fast with potential or fantasy, and create stories of living happily ever after before truly knowing a person - you may struggle with love addiction. If you experienced relationship trauma that causes you to fear love and relationships, thrive in independence and freedom, you may struggle with love avoidance. If you struggle with shame, self-rejection, unworthiness, and tend to push people away; then you may struggle with love deprivation.
