Courage offers the right amount of energy to push through change by inspiring resilience, persistence and confidence – no matter how difficult it is. “All progress takes place outside the comfort zone,” according to Michael John Bobak. That’s where Relationship Free stands out – we dare to be different, we’re open with our mistakes and we want to keep that authentic-human energy through everything we do. We don’t care for the squeaky-clean over-branded perfect image. No one and nothing is perfect – let’s embrace that! We want to show how imperfect love, whether it’s the love you have for yourself or the love you share in a partnership with someone else – can be perfect for you, exactly as it is! Imperfections allowed! Relationship Free dares to be different and we are not afraid of taking risks and chances and really stepping out of the comfort zone in order to genuinely help people. Once again, Oprah says it well when she says: “You’ve got to follow your passion. You’ve got to figure out what it is you love–who you really are. And have the courage to do that. I believe that the only courage anybody ever needs is the courage to follow your own dream”.
Facing fears is never an easy thing to do and sometimes we find ourselves in a situation where it is necessary. It is when we really flex the courage muscle that we feel truly empowered. This can be seen as a theme that arises constantly throughout the Hunger Game series. Pema Chodron adds to this fantastic movie metaphor saying “Nothing ever goes away until it has taught us what we need to know”. If you’ve seen patterns in your relationships that come up with multiple partners – then you would understand exactly what we’re getting at here, and it can take a lot of courage to confront it!
