There are many different ways we self-sabotage when it comes to love. And most of them are quite subtle that we don’t realize add up over time.

Today, we’ll be talking about these unexpected ways, what you can do about it, and a free resource for you to go deeper into your self-learning.

Tune in to this episode: Unexpected Ways You May Be Blocking Love.

Key points covered in this episode:

✔️ Deflecting compliments. People send love your way through positive words about your outfit or how you look. Instead of saying, “This dress is on sale,” or rejecting it, accept it with open arms.

✔️ Refusing help. Service is love. Saying no to it because of your over-self-reliance tells the universe that you don’t need anything or anyone. What you give out tends to come back.

✔️ Picking apart mistakes. Shift this into appreciating what your partner does right. Don’t fixate on the tiny things that went wrong so you can assimilate the love that already exists.

✔️ Become a gracious receiver. Watch how more comes to you when you’re aware of how you block love and work on opening yourself to what is given to you.

Grab my cheat sheet below so you can experience the abundance of love that’s available to you!
