You may know you have barriers to love and you may have taken responsibility for your love life. Unfortunately, the way most people try to bypass these blocks is by looking for them.

Throughout my life many people and experiences would take me to the same emotional battle over and over again. I would attract the same issues within relationships and realized there was a pattern. My self-doubt and feelings of not being good enough would create significant mood changes or reactions that would become uncomfortable or disappointing. Over the many years with this struggle within, I could see how my judgments of myself and others would trigger this same conflict, taking me to the source of the problem again and again.
