Do you ever feel like you’re going crazy? Many of us have dysfunctional self-relationships that can create personal and relational issues, making us feel a bit crazy. Listen to today’s show to better understand your “crazy” and how to make it work for you.

In this episode with Dr. Mark Borg, we discuss relationship advice topics that include:

  • How we sometimes create negative relationships with ourselves and how to remedy this
  • Where dysfunctional relationships with ourselves can originate
  • The performer identity to earn love and the key insights this can provide for improving your relationship
  • Why we are sometimes driven in our relationships by the need to be seen as good
  • How to have compassionate empathy toward ourselves
  • Diving into your past to create powerful healing
  • And much more!
