Listen to Suzi’s Love Success Story: Suzi Quillen’s Love Success Story
A Dating Expert’s Advice: Invest in Your Inner Strength!
Coming out of an 18-year hostile marriage, Suzi Quillen was looking for a clear path to some kind of future happiness. Two priorities at the top of her list were 1) Discover the strength and beauty she had been repressing inside herself and 2) Find out what a healthy relationship would feel like. But, with a lifetime of social anxiety disorders and three teenage children, this kind of self-improvement wasn’t going to come easy.
For over 4 years post-divorce, Suzi was in a satisfying relationship with a Mr. Quality Casual. Neither of them had the energy to engage in a more committed relationship at the time, and Suzi was content to regain a sense of self-worth and joy through exploring her lost artistic skills as a vocalist, crochet designer and photographer. Eventually, however, personal troubles on both sides of the relationship came pouring in and this flood of issues created an ever-increasing distance between them–a distance so wide that they broke things off and went their separate ways.
Last year on her birthday, after some time spent sampling the free insights on DWD, Suzi went ahead and bought herself the Breaking Free from the Romantic Rut program. Her rationale for the purchase was simple and insightful: “Don’t undervalue yourself. You’re worth investing in.” Like many others out there, she was accustomed to buying products that improved her outer sense of beauty, makeup and clothes, but now it was time to improve that inner strength that, unfortunately, is often left undeveloped and forgotten.
Suzi wanted to become clearer and more honest with herself about what she wanted in a relationship. And then she wanted to know how to communicate those desires in a healthy manner–a way that didn’t “impose my boundaries on other people but still made my boundaries clear” as she so aptly put it.
Soon after, the ex-boyfriend (Mr. Casual) contacted her. This time Suzi was ready. When he apologized and opened up to her about the unfortunate distance between them, she felt her recently-gained strength and confidence. She loved him (she always had), but now she possessed the dignity and the knowledge that if things weren’t going to work in the direction she wanted, she could look somewhere else to find it. Open communication and the healing of old hurts now reigned in their relationship, and these good, healthy feelings led to his proposal this last November (she said, “Yes!”).
Suzi’s story is proof that relationships get more and more complicated (see: difficult) as life goes on, but that love doesn’t have to. Gaining the kind of self-strength Suzi developed, anyone can find the love that best suits their nature. Sometimes it simply comes down to making the investment where it is needed most in order to push us forward on the right path.
