Self-Love for Stronger Relationships
In today's episode, Megan is joined by Alia, a love coach, to discuss the importance of self-love and its role in allowing individuals to have strong relationships, both with partners and with themselves. Alia begins by sharing her own personal immigration journey with her ex husband, and the wisdom she has gained from her work helping others. She and Megan then delve into how the stress and pressure of the immigration process can put a strain on relationships, but also how it can be an opportunity for self-growth and making "diamonds" out of the pressure.
The notion that external factors such as a romantic relationship or an immigration case will not bring true happiness is also explored, as Alia shares her own experience of believing that her happiness was dependent on her partner being with her before realizing that true happiness actually comes from within. Together, she and Megan go on to discuss the importance of being present with oneself to find this happiness within, and highlighting the fact that this perspective can lead to a deeper understanding and compassion for one's partner and a more fulfilling relationship. Listen in today to not only gain a deeper understanding of the importance of self-love, but to also learn how to use the immigration process as an opportunity for personal growth without letting it become a third wheel in your relationship.

"That is where we actually get to come closer to our higher self, a truer self"
"When the love becomes unconditional, that's when I can accept myself exactly the way I am."
"When we go to the unconditional level of self love, I feel like it's more on the transformational side than self awareness side."
"That's when I can look at all the difficulties, all the challenges, that come in my life and say, ‘Okay, I'm going to use this to grow.’"
"I was focused on only if he will be here with me, I'm going to feel better."
"I am present with myself. I'll be available for my spouse with such a compassion too."
"I already have me. I'm already complete."
