Relationsh*t: A Practical Guide to Stepping Out of Fear

by | Feb 7, 2024

Looking for a romance right out of Swifty Land? Well, it takes work, and sometimes that means working out of a relationship to find the one that is the best for you. In her groundbreaking book, Relationsh*t: A Practical Guide to Stepping Out of Fear, Navigating Big Relationship Change, and Living Your Best Life Brooke Box a renowned transformation coach and relationship expert, delves into this very idea. Brooke’s book is not just a guide; it’s a journey toward understanding and improving all forms of relationships, whether they are romantic, familial, or professional. 

She discusses the importance of emotional intelligence, effective communication, and setting healthy boundaries in creating and maintaining fulfilling relationships. 

Through real-life examples and practical advice, Relationsh*t provides readers with the tools to navigate the complexities of their interpersonal connections, helping them work towards the kind of love they’ve always dreamed of.

I had the pleasure of sitting down with Brooke to find out more about the inspiration of her #1 bestselling relationship book on Amazon: 

Brooke, your journey as a transformation coach is inspiring. Can you share what inspired you to pursue this path?

Brooke: My journey to becoming a transformation coach was deeply personal and shaped by my own life experiences. Navigating significant challenges, including an amicable divorce, I came to understand the profound impact of self-reflection and personal transformation. These experiences were turning points, revealing the strength and resilience within me. They taught me valuable lessons about empathy, understanding, and the power of change. Inspired by this journey, I felt compelled to share these insights with others, to guide and support them through their own paths of self-discovery and growth. It was not just about overcoming obstacles, but about using these experiences to empower and enrich one’s life. This realization led me to my current role, where I have the privilege of helping others navigate their unique challenges and journeys, fostering their own transformative experiences.

Your bestselling book on relationships has resonated with so many. What do you believe makes your approach unique?

Brooke: I think it’s my emphasis on holistic growth. Relationships aren’t just about how we interact with others but also how we understand ourselves. My approach combines practical relationship advice with deeper self-discovery, which I believe is key to lasting, meaningful connections.

How do you address challenges couples face in today’s fast-paced world?

Brooke: The essence of maintaining a healthy relationship, especially in today’s fast-paced world, lies in finding a balance. Modern couples often find themselves overwhelmed by numerous responsibilities, which can inadvertently lead to neglecting their relationship. My role as a coach is to help couples devise and implement strategies that ensure their connection remains strong amidst these challenges. We focus on the importance of quality time – making the most of the moments they share, no matter how brief. Additionally, we work on enhancing open communication, ensuring that both partners feel heard and understood. This approach helps in not only maintaining but also enriching the bond they share, making their relationship a source of strength and comfort.

With Valentine’s Day approaching, many couples feel pressure to make it perfect. What’s your advice for them?

Brooke: Valentine’s Day should be about authentic expression of love, not just grand gestures. I advise couples to focus on meaningful ways to connect. It could be a simple act of kindness, a heartfelt conversation, or recalling fond memories. Authenticity makes the day truly special.

For those not in a relationship on Valentine’s Day, remember this day can still be a celebration of love in its many forms. It’s a perfect opportunity to acknowledge and appreciate the love you have for yourself, family, friends, and even pets. Embrace the day as a chance to indulge in self-care, reach out to loved ones, or simply enjoy your own company. This day is about love, and that includes the love you have for yourself and the important people in your life. Celebrate it in a way that brings joy and comfort to you.

Can you share a key piece of advice from the book for dealing with difficult relationships?

Brooke: Absolutely, one of the main points I emphasize in my coaching and writing is the importance of setting healthy boundaries. In both personal and professional relationships, understanding and respecting your own limits, as well as those of others, is crucial. Healthy boundaries allow for a sense of individuality and mutual respect within any relationship. They help define what is acceptable and what is not, ensuring that everyone’s needs and comfort levels are acknowledged and respected. This practice leads to healthier interactions, better communication, and more fulfilling relationships. It’s about finding a balance between your own needs and those of others, creating an environment where everyone can thrive.

Brooke’s insights provide a refreshing perspective on relationships, emphasizing emotional depth and mutual growth. Her approach, blending practical strategies with empathetic understanding, offers valuable guidance for anyone looking to enrich their personal and romantic life.
