Life is not just the mixed up jumble of events that happen to us. There is a sequence of things that occurred, choices that were made, opportunities seized and opportunities missed — and they all add up to where you are right now.
Some people go through life as a passive observer of the events around them, and they miss out on a whole lot of exciting experiences and opportunities to learn and grow. Sometimes, they become victims of their own lack of awareness.

What’s Your Love Style?
Your childhood relational experiences are wired into your behaviors and beliefs, creating imprints called “love styles.” This concept comes from attachment theory, which states that our childhood roles form the roots of who we are, and continue informing the way we love and treat others far into adulthood.

The key to personal freedom and healthier relationships is understanding your love style. You can find out what your love style is by taking our online quiz.
