Are you ready to feel better about yourself?
You want to live up to your full potential and get to know yourself again.
Maybe you think you need a better guy or a better relationship. You’ve tried changing relationships in the past, but nothing ever seems to improve.
Perhaps if you could just find “the one” then you would be truly happy.
Or maybe you're having a really hard time loving what you see in the mirror.
You're so unhappy with how you look that it's taking a toll on your every day life.
You find it hard to be in a relationship and/or trust your partner because you feel so insecure.
It's like your self-worth is dependent entirely upon how you look and the approval and acceptance of others and/or a man.
You just keep going through this cycle and it seems like you're never good enough.
You are SO ready for a change and to turn a new chapter. You want to dive deep into getting to know yourself, and you're looking for a guide who's relatable and aspirational.
That's where I come in...
If you resonated with any of the above, I totally understand. For most of my life I was looking for love in all the wrong places and had low self-worth (but didn't know it), and yet, to the rest of the world I was the picture perfect girl.
I work with women who love deeply, but are also hard on themselves and have a deep desire to be loved and accepted.
Hi, I’m Irene. I’ve been where you are right now.
I’m an ordinary girl who moved to Hollywood looking for love in all the wrong places and for the wrong reasons. I imagined a fairytale world with a “soulmate” – and feel completed by a man.
Instead, I discovered abuse, betrayal, and rejection. The man whom I thought I was in love with turned from a prince into an abusive partner.
Eventually picking up the broken pieces of my self-worth, I escaped from my fiancé one month before our wedding. I had a nervous breakdown at 25 years of age, feeling like I’d never be able to ever recover emotionally.
I moved to New York to start anew & bury the stuff that didn’t work. More relationships arrived on the scene, and I stayed past their expiration date.
I was exhausted from my love life and as a result, my immune system collapsed. I experienced many health challenges and months where I couldn't leave my bed.
I had another turning point moment where I knew deep within my heart that there was something major I had to change & shift within me.
So I made the decision to stop the search, and commit to “dating me” instead.
And so, Self Love Junkie was born.
I want you to know that focusing on the relationship with yourself first is not selfish or egotistical, but smart and soulful.
My life looks completely different these days. I spend time dating me & without the guilt.
What does it mean to "date yourself"? Today, dating myself looks like...
- Pursuing my passions & interests
- Daily asking the question, “What’s the most loving thing I can do for myself right now?"
- Continuously working on creating & being the best version of myself (and purely for myself, not for a man or anyone else)
- Taking responsibility for my own happiness
- Feeling secure in who I am and not measuring my worth with how I look or how 'successful' I am
When you’re strengthened and nourished by your own self-love, and supporting your own happiness, you’ll see positive effects on every area of your life — especially your love life. I want that for you too.
Now, I teach women (like you!) my Self Love Junkie principles because I believe when you’re able to connect with unconditional love, develop your self-worth & attend to your needs, you naturally become happier & confident — and that’s when you attract the most loving relationship (and what you really crave in your life).
I can't wait to meet you!
"I simply wanted to say that your emails give me strength - the last year has been a rough journey where my mind & spirit have felt deflated. I can recall a couple of moments where reading your emails reinvigorated my mojo and gave me that positive drive again to keep moving forwards. For that I am grateful and I thank you. You are amazing." – Melinda
"Thank you, Irene! This dropped into my inbox at just the right time. Thank you for sharing your wisdom xxx" – Sophie
"Hi Irene, I know this is a group email but somehow you seem to hit the nail on the head subject and timewise every time. Thank you so much." – Joanna
"Hi Irene, this comes at an absolutely perfect time! I'm so grateful to have read this right now because it's just what I needed to hear. I have been feeling very stuck the past week and I knew it was all going to be ok but I didn't really know what to do. I will also be answering the questions you listed. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. It helps to know that there are other people feeling stuck too and I'm not alone." With love and gratitude. – Tyson
