Radically Loved® with Rosie Acosta

Hello Friends, I’m Rosie Acosta. I am a Meditation Teacher; Speaker and Author of You Are Radically Loved: A healing journey to self-love. I grew up in East Los Angeles during the 92 La Riots and it set me on a troubled path for many years. I didn’t grow up with mentors in my life, so I turned to reading as many books as I possibly could to learn about life’s purpose. In my journey as a First Gen-Mexican American, I found having these conversations gave me insight, support, and inspiration. So, I decided to create a place where I could share these conversations with my community. The Radically Loved Podcast was born! How do we create a radically loved life? Come have a sit with me so we can discover all things mindfulness, spirituality, self-love, and overall healthy living. Please be sure to share the episodes that you love and also leave us a review!

Falling in love is undoubtedly one of the best feelings in the world. It makes our heart flutter and the butterflies in our stomachs dance in joy. No matter the age, love is something we all feel, may it be fleeting or long-term. But not all the people we love feel the same way for us and vice versa. Feelings don't always get reciprocated no matter how much we work on them. In this case, what is the proper response for the person on the receiving end of a love confession?
In this episode, Rosie and Tessa talk about the overarching theme of love. They answer a question from a listener on how to respond to someone they don't feel the same way romantically. Furthermore, they talked about when to say "I love you." They highlight the importance of setting boundaries in avoiding asymmetrical relationships. Tessa then shares the details of her love story at the end of the podcast!

How Soon is Too Soon to Say “I Love You”
●The main topic for this episode is the overarching theme of falling in love
●A question from a listener: How do you respond to someone wholeheartedly saying they love you when you don’t feel the same way romantically?
●OkCupid surveyed 6000 people on the question of how soon is too soon to say "I love you."

●The typical range is about three months.
How to Respond to a Confession When You Don’t Feel the Same Way
●Tessa has never had the situation happen to her. She thinks it’s best to approach it like a compliment and say thank you.
●Rosie has experienced this situation before. A friend confessed to her wanting to be in a romantic relationship, but she didn't feel the same way.
●That friend tried to push the idea to Rosie, even with Torry in the picture. She turned him down on several occasions and created space between them.
●A spiritual counselor asked Rosie if she was keeping that friend as a way of ego feeding.
●Rosie suggests being honest and creating a clear boundary.
Creating an Asymmetrical Relationship
●It’s hard to maintain a deep friendship with someone in love with you.

●An asymmetrical friendship is when only one person gets the buck of energy fill.
How to Come from a Place of Honesty and Kindness
●Laying down romantic feelings and the vulnerability that comes with it is a sensitive subject.
●It’s not easy to turn someone down in a way that remains kind and loving.
●Tessa: Have the other person clarify what they mean by their "I love you." Acknowledge it, give appreciation, and explain you don't feel the same kind of love.

●They ended up meeting on campus again and started seeing each other more often and going Salsa dancing together. But they were with other people at the time.
●Tessa found out he was living with his girlfriend’s parents at the time. They were his host family as an exchange student, so Tessa didn’t want to compromise.

●Rosie agrees that Tessa and Jorge complement each other very well.
●Meanwhile, Rosie shares her love story at length in her book. She says she must have done something right in the past life to deserve Torry.
Powerful Quotes
“I would do my best to say something along the lines of, I care a lot about you. You mean a lot to me. I don't feel ready to say ‘I love you’ yet, at least not in that the way that I think you mean it.”
“I think there's a difference here. And this is very much under the umbrella of falling in love the difference between being an adult relationship and puppy love.”
“If you're not corresponding, it's almost once the relationship crosses that threshold unless there are very, very clear boundaries, it's kind of hard to go back. And then at that point, subconsciously, the mind is just wanting to keep that person around, to sort of feed that part of you that likes that attention.”
