Cheap Thrills About Your Ex

Do you remember that song Cheap Thrills by Sia? This week, let’s look at when we feel those cheap thrills when it comes to hearing about our exes. You may remember from last week’s episode that I was recently triggered when I heard about a recent success he had. And in that episode, we talked about how we process those moments of good that may happen to our exes and what we’re making it mean about us. 

This week, let’s turn it around. Just a few days ago I heard from a friend about that same ex, from my rock-bottom heartbreak, and hearing about a time when he felt jealous of me and a success I had. I’ll be honest, it brought me a little thrill of joy. In this episode, I share with you why I let myself enjoy this little thrill, how to know it’s ok to feel this thrill, and identifying when it doesn’t serve you. 

If you are struggling with these cheap thrills or not sure if it’s ok to feel what you are feeling in regards to your ex, I want to invite you to invest in yourself, heal your heart, fall in love with you, and find someone better. Right now I’m offering my 60-video course on how to learn and use the tools to create these results for yourself. And if you really want to take your healing to the next level, I invite you to apply for my one-year group coaching program,  Stop Wanting Him Back and Find Someone Better.
