How to stop looking for love somewhere else
“We’re always looking for love somewhere else… we don’t think that much about whether we love, or even like, ourselves”.
How true is that?!
That’s a direct quote from the beginning of the amazing interview I did with Susan Gerrish, a Mind-Body Eating Psychology Coach who just blew my mind with her gorgeous approach to self-love AND the boat-load of actionable advice she shared.
Susan shares exactly how to stop looking for love somewhere else – and it’s really powerful.
Seriously guys, if you want some awesome, easy, and effective ways to start practicing self-love, then Susan is your lady. She peppers this interview with things you can really start doing.

Self-loathing to Self-love
In the interview, Susan tells us about how she has journeyed through binge eating and self-loathing, to a free and happy eater – and how self-love played a critical role in that shift.
“We’re always in self-loathing. When do we get to flick the switch and get over to self-love?”.
She also shares the beautiful thought that,
“We all have gifts, we all have contributions – things we can offer the world” and it’s also good to take and receive goodness from the world.
Stop looking for love somewhere else
As Susan says:
“The more you love yourself, the more you’re going to love the world”.
Susan offered some excellent advice about getting started with self-love. She explained how she works with her clients to ground them in the most basic parts of their lives – such as pleasure, nourishment, and relaxation – to provide a firm basis for growing a positive relationship with self.
She also explained exactly how she uses affirmations in her own self-love practice (and you can too!). In the interview, Susan mentions that she sets her affirmations in the quantum field – which she explains briefly, but you can find some more info here if it’s interesting for you.
