The Single Chronicles

The Single Chronicles

By Insomniac Writer

The Single Chronicles Podcast started out talking about the shenanigans of coping with being single. (1st season) Somewhere down the line, I somehow unearthed past/unhealed traumas and I am now in this place called, "Shadow work" doing this healing thing.
This is a therapeutic, venting (sometimes ranting) session that mitigates how hard it is to love yourself by dealing with past/preset traumas and avoiding future, toxic relationships while discovering the misconception that the perfect relationship or partner does not exist.

Episode 107: Emotional Manipulation vs Accountability

Episode 107: Emotional Manipulation vs Accountability

Today's episode feels more like psych class but I had to talk about it. Emotionally manipulation happens to us all and often we are equally guilty of it. That being said, some claim to change or be accountable for their actions, and rightfully so but it is very seldom.
An emotionally Manipulative person can be a romantic partner, spouse, friend or relative. Regardless of their role in your life, their actions and mannerisms depict if they are accountable or manipulative as well as their reaction when you call them out.

How this relates to dating and being single, well in order to avoid these people... you have to be like Final Destination and follow the signs

Episode 104: Are You Happy?

Episode 104: Are You Happy?

Today's episode begs the question, are you happy? In a world plagued with anxiety, depression, and even danger... we get caught up in a whirlwind of losing our happiness. Because we focus so much of time lamenting the past and worrying about the future, we lose sight of appreciating the now.

Episode 103: Andrew Tate released from jail & passport bros.

Episode 103: Andrew Tate released from jail & passport bros.

This week I wanted to finally address my thoughts on the whole "passport bros" and Andrew Tate. I forgot to mention that men, in particular rich, white men have sought out wives, mail-order brides, to even concubines for centuries. But no one batted an eye. It may be the surge of social media & other podcasts but the conversations are everywhere. Folks all have something to say. Nonetheless, why do people care? And why is that we need to bash anyone on either side of the topic? But you know what they say, "...only a hit dog hollers"

Episode 102: I Give Up On Dating

This episode is brought to you by the pervs that slide into my DMs only to send 🍆 pics, say inappropriate nonsense, or just think I'm ready to pop my legs open just because they think I'm available. Only to shy away when you ask tough questions. This is why single does not equal available.

Epidode 99: What is Toxic Validation?

Epidode 99: What is Toxic Validation?

So, what is toxic validation? This week I went live on my TikTok to record this week's episode and discuss why we go back and seek validation or feel voids from toxic people. I was inspired by a post referring to why we go back to toxic exes and people. It reminded me of that time why I was consoling a close friend through a break up all the while asking why I too kept going back to problematic and toxic people.   There was no promo this week but feel free to again follow me on social media: TikTok, YouTube & Instagram

Episode 89: Try Reflecting! Stop Deflecting & Projecting

Ever wonder why your relationships and endeavors fail about the same time? I mean these things usually end about 1 year or 2 or 3 no matter how much you try to make it work! It's as if a roadblock puts you back on a hamster wheel bringing you back to where you started. This week's episode, I decided to talk about reflection instead of deflection & how it led to my healing path as well as where it has brought me. I got a long way to go.

Episode 86: I Did A Stupid Thing & Ignored My Own Red Flag

Episode 86: I Did A Stupid Thing & Ignored My Own Red Flag

After a much-needed break, this week The Single Chronicles returns with a bit of a confession... from yours truly.  I often talk about accountability and owning up to the roles we play in relationships or situationships.  Well I would be a hypocrite if I didn't practice as I preach.  So here it is! I spent some of my break engulfed in a bit of an online situationship that I not only knew better to do in the first place but actively continued to participate in.  Now the person, who I kept anonymous played their part as well... and I guess had me fooled a bit.  Not because they were cunning but because I refused to follow my own cardinal rule. 

But that's the beauty of The Single Chronicles, it never paints this picture of me being perfect.  So how can I teach you without 1st learning from myself. 

Strap in guys...

This week I discuss the problem of blaming women for being with crappy partners. Why is it that we never old men to the same type of standards we hold women?
