Cheers Sexy People!
Hello, Loving Without Boundaries (LWB) community! My heart goes out to you during these challenging times. I hope you are doing your best to keep safe. Sharing inspirational stories of hope, inclusion, and healthy lifestyles are more important than ever. If you are looking for ways to connect with loved ones you are separated from, check out this blog post that I shared recently. On to another inspiring story…
I am so excited to share my latest podcast interview that I released recently with the amazing, lovely Laurel Schrock, one of my coaching clients. I so honor Laurel for being brave enough to reach out to me for help on her relationship journey. This big-hearted, courageous, and amazing person has been dating a polyamorous-identified fella for years. Yet it all came to a head when she was trying to navigate feelings of jealousy, insecurity, and spiraling thoughts that threatened to “take her out.” Thank goodness, she did not keep struggling on her own, and she reached out to me for help. On our first call, I saw the bright light and tenacity in this amazing human being! I was thrilled because I KNEW I could help her. It is a fantastic honor and privilege to help great folks like Laurel move from negatively-charged and debilitating emotions, and powerfully get them to the other side towards confidence and resolve, with a powerful toolbox in their superhero toolbelt. I was so inspired by Laurel, her big heart, and her creativity, that I knew I wanted to share her story asap. Laurel loves candle-making and has the generous desire to donate all proceeds from her Unicorn Farts candles (love that name!) for the LGBTQ+ community in honor of Pride month. Please consider checking out her candles and supporting an amazing cause here. The proceeds will help support one of her favorite causes, The Loft Community Center. Laurel! Dang girl, I am so PROUD of you! You have made leaps and bounds as well as powerfully great strides in literally just a few weeks of coaching with me and our community. You know why? Because you are a rock star who showed up ready to work, give it your all, and play full out! I love you lady!
Here is Laurel’s bio:
Laurel Schrock, a network engineer for Verizon Communications, hails from Mount Vernon, NY. She’s an Army Vet, a graduate of Georgetown University and also a small business owner, making her love for candles into what she calls a “hobby that now pays for itself.” Laurel has always identified as monogamous but a little over two years ago, she began dating an awesome guy who happened to be poly. Earlier this year (2021), she began to experience intense and debilitating insecurities. Although it was gradual, she was struggling and she knew she needed help. Laurel had an amazing breakthrough recently in discovering and embracing who she really is. She now does not see herself as a monogamous person any longer.
Some topics we discuss in this fun, informative, and entertaining interview:
- How she never really fit into a mold growing up and joined the army as part of that exploration.
- Some of the issues she faced in previous relationships.
- The challenges of dating someone who is polyamorous when you are monogamous.
- Her struggle with self worth and the debilitating emotions that brought her to the JSG Program.
- Her experience in the JSG Program and what she has learned so far.
- Why her Unicorn Farts candle celebrates LBGTQ+ Pride and supports The Loft Community Center
- Tune in to listen to this fantastic podcast episode!
