Relationships can be a real roller coaster, and when they're headed downhill, they're devastating. We've all been on the receiving end of rejection, whether turned down for a date, passed over altogether or dumped after months of seeming relationship bliss. This week's panel gets its hands dirty on the subject of rejection; whether you're the rejected or the rejectee, we hope you'll benefit from our highs, lows and lessons learned.
Dreaming With Dominic
Guests: Dominic Balli
Martha assumed I'd want to interview Dominic Balli, and after listening to his American Dream project, I told her she was right. He sings a reggae-infused version of pop/rock that gets him compared to Ziggy Marley and Lenny Kravitz, but it's his relationship with Christ that fuels his music and sets his story apart. He also claims he couldn't carry a tune as a child. Hm. Listen in for the full scoop as well as the lowdown on his rockin' dreads. We also feature his music on this episode.
Guests: Jackie Johnson
Our listener has been through several breakups, and none of them have gone well. Hearts were broken and harsh things were said. She's wondering if there's any hope for ending a relationship well. Jackie Johnson, author of When Love Ends and the Ice Cream Carton Is Empty, shares her own experience with breakups as a springboard to answer this week's inbox question.
