what i learned after i quit dating for one year

i quit dating for an entire year and this is what i learned about myself in the process. this is a long, heavy video but it’s a video full of healing and happiness. i feel so grateful to have made the decision to do this and pursue healing in the romance/dating area of my life. it’s something i really needed and couldn’t even admit to myself just how badly i needed it. my relationship with myself has flourished, dreams have been realized, and i feel stronger than ever when it comes knowing my boundaries/needs and speaking up for myself about them. i’m really excited to date again, to celebrate the hopeless romantic in me, and to have opportunities to be vulnerable, connect with someone new, and show up for myself in the process. i’m so excited for 2022! here’s to a very emotionally available new year 🙂 i’m sure i’ll keep making videos talking about my dating life/thoughts surrounding it– not sure what the format will look like or how much i’ll share but it’s definitely something you’ll be seeing more of in 2022. i love you all! i’ll see you in a few weeks.
