GITRMM ep 50: Men and Rejection

Lisa and Benjamin take a deep dive on a topic that we all have to deal with once, twice, or even hundreds of times in our lives – rejection. Even just a small rejection can feel so big, especially when it comes to dating and putting ourselves out there to be loved and to love someone else. They first talk about how men are just as scared of rejection as women are, and what situations tend to make men feel the most rejected and insecure. They then discuss how their 12 week course can help teach women how to navigate their own boundaries and desires as a way that is compassionate yet firm with men, and creates a foundation of trust and respect for both parties.

What You’ll Hear In This Episode:
