Linda Carroll:

Mastering the Relationship with Self

Linda Carroll: Mastering the Relationship with Self Dr. Seku Gathers

Good People,

Today I had the absolute pleasure of interviewing Linda Carroll. She’s a therapist, couple’s coach, and author of the book Love Skills.

Linda dives deep into her personal truth: that “love” is just a chemical reaction, and healthy relationships truly take a lot of work. We also dove into conversations around the COVID-19 pandemic and how it’s affecting our personal relationships and exaggerating certain aspects of our lives. Going deeper, Linda shares about how being in a relationship isn’t the most important thing; it’s about being in a relationship with yourself.

As always, thank you for tuning in. I’ll see you in the next one.
