Episode74: The Cost of Conformity with Carrie Jeroslow


Today my special guest is Carrie Jeroslow.

Best-selling author and Relationship Diversity Advocate, Carrie Jeroslow, is passionate about bringing intentionality into intimate relationships by releasing the programming of what we’re taught relationships SHOULD be and shifting to what we really WANT them to be.

Her podcast, Relationship Diversity Podcast, aims to explore, question, and celebrate all aspects of relationship structure diversity This is an inclusive space, giving people the permission to design their unique relationships from the knowledge and acceptance of their unique selves.

She has been seen on NBC, PBS, The CW, featured in, Winston Salem Journal, Prevention and Newsweek, and has been interviewed by Marianne Williamson, Go All In TV, The ListTV, and many others to share her message, as well as her first book, Why Do They Always Break Up with Me?

Just from reading her Bio you can see that we are so aligned in our missions. Today we talk about preserving our energy, people pleasing and the dangers of conformity. Why is it dangerous to conform? Isn't it important to belong and make sure that we are following the rules?

Our society is built on certain rules to follow when it comes to relationships and sexuality. Many of us have been taught to follow these rules with no regard to our own intuition or discomfort. We are not taught to ask ourselves what we would like, what we enjoy, what our needs are, etc... We are taught to put our heads down, hustle, do what you are told and conform so that everybody can get along and so that society can be easier to manage. The thing is, many people are living out a program that does fit them or even meet their needs. We have an epidemic of mental health issues and dissatisfaction. Past generations were not taugh about the correlation between our physical and mental health with the joy in our lives.

We are told that marriage to one person forever is the only way to live "Happily Ever After." However, this is false. Very few people actually have healthy marriages and relationships. There is so much infidelity and we are taught that sexuality is shameful and desiring it is even worse. Is it any wonder that we are suffering to be authentic in our world?

There is a serious cost to conformity even if you don't realize it.

You've heard, “Sex is wrong! Relationships are supposed to be hard work!”

What you probably didn’t learn is that sex is empowering and that relationships can be free, and fun, and empowered all at the same time! Karine kicks shame and guilt to the curb so that you can live your most authentic life the way that you want to.

She never in her wildest dreams imagined living the Empowered, Sexy, and Authentic life that she lives right now. Discovering Sex Positivity was the catalyst that allowed her to step out and explore a whole new world of possibilities! She is a Bible School Graduate turned Playboy Enthusiast! While studying the “worst of the worst”, she found her people.

Life is not always what we’ve been taught. Karine uses her magnetism, deep love of people and intuition to release her clients from the societal and religious boxes that they have been programmed into. She wants to inspire people to live their truth and discover their often deeply buried sexual desires and bring them to life in a safe and ethical way that empowers them and their relationships.

She is normalizing Ethical Non-Monogamy. She wants couples to step out and discover the beauty and power of true honesty, authenticity, and confidence in relationships. Looking at the world through a Sex Positive lens will absolutely shift how you understand relationships.

She uses her magnetism and transparency to make you feel safe and seen. Her intuition allows her to see exactly what is holding you back in life and her ability to really see you makes you feel accepted and safe with her. Through her openness and vulnerability she is able to transform your fears into joy and excitement. She is the best at bringing you safely into this Sex Positive world without fear or regret. She guides you every step of the way.

She wants more for you than the script you’ve been fed, “Find your soulmate, marry them, and be monogamous forever!” There is so much more than this in life. Step out and finally Break Free!
