We live in a world where we can project ourselves to be whoever we want a person to believe we are in order to get what we want. We have to train ourselves to recognize red flags in situations and people while trusting them to be who/what they are and who we believe them to be.
Tunnel vision this episode isn't in reference to overlooking those red flags, it's on focusing so heavily on your overall goal, that you completely disregard the other things about a person that make them special.
This is a great episode for anyone recently facing a rejection to understand it was never about who you are, but totally on the other person for being focused on what you can/can't do for them.

The in person interviews sound and just feel better. Brittany was cool with recording in the grand studio of my closet. This one is very spirituality/emotionally focused and highlights how being in touch with your own intuition guides you to and away from like energies if you listen to it.
Keep subscribing and reviewing the podcast.

This is an important episode of Something Positive for Positive People. We talk about not disclosing. In the posts about this episode, there have been mixed responses from anger and rage to understanding. This episodes offers a a perspective we will never hear about in sex education, we're unlikely to hear from a partner in today's dating culture, and we will probably never hear this side of a story otherwise. Please be respectful in the comments about this episode. I'm not asking you to have an opinion, I'm asking you to respect this space as this platform is in fact dedicated to allow people to share their experiences despite how you may feel about them.
We've already agreed to have Jewell back on after she finishes disclosing to past partners and once feedback from her circle is given on opening up about this challenging topic to discuss. I'd like this to remain a safe space for her to do so. Thank you in advance.
Don't forget to call 833-YAS-LOVE and let Dating Positives know what you're hoping for romantically this holiday season! It's anonymous, safe and most of all, FUN!

Short and to the point. Herpes Awareness Day is Saturday October 13th, 2018. Two hashtags can help inspire action on this day! #whatstigma calls to people who know someone living with herpes and encourages them to share something cool or that they learned from this person that goes against the stigma of a person who is 'gross' or has a lot of sex with a lot of people. You can drop a quote from them or talk about your relationship to that person after they shared their diagnosis with you. This sets the foundation for people to see that they have support around them. People may be suffering to themselves in silence and the only way for them to safely pursue support is to know that there's someone close to them offering it.
#Ihaveherpesand is for those of us who feel empowered and want to empower. Yeah . . . #ihaveherpesand I run a gym, I have a healthy family, have an amazing partner, I run a nonprofit or started a podcast. This is for those of us who are open about their status or want to come out so that people can see just how little impact herpes itself has on our overall quality of life.
This isn't about coming out. If you're not in a place to do so, please don't feel pressured. It's important to do what feels best for you and if that means not participating, that is 100% fine. The goal is to create a call for people to just be there for those who may be struggling with their diagnosis and have a person to go to who's safe to share their new diagnosis so that they have support dealing with the emotions and mental aspects of it.
