Hang Out with Janelle: Slam Up Ladies Talk Relationships, Breakups and STDs

I met Cali and Emily from Slam Up, when they were on tour and made a stop in Minneapolis. I immediately loved them as they started singing Salt N Pepa’s – None of your Business. Aside from our mutual love of Salt N Pepa, I totally vibed with what these ladies had going on.

Cali and Emily describe Slam Up with- WHERE POETRY MEETS COMEDY. It’s true. The show bounces back and forth from ridiculous laughter to stiring your soul. It was a pleasure to be in their audience.

I had to get these ladies to hang out with me and talk about relationships, breakups and STDs. So here it is…..

Here is the lyrics to the fabulous song ‘Don’t Care What You Say’: 

Cali: Em, from a friend to a friend, this relationship needs to end

I just can’t stand aside and watch you cry your eyes dry

Maybe the tears are why you can’t see they let you hide
The dirty fact, that a door mat is what she’s made of your heart and it’s ripping you apart, which is ripping me apart,

You need to be apart from this girl who is ripping out your heart

PAUSE – DRUM CHANGE

Em: Yeah, I don’t care what you say, I’m not ending it

Tell me not to text her, I’m still sending it

Tell me to cut all ties, I won’t de-friend her til I die

Because I love her to death so save your breath, bestie

Stop judging my relationship

you’re trying to help but it is not needed

we are fine, i know we broke up 9 times

but it’s impossible to understand from the outside!

you are not aware of the really good times

you just hear about the bad,

like when she went behind my back

and LA LA LA LA LA LA LET’S NOT TALK ABOUT THAT!

(FASTER)

Cali: Em, this needs to end, remember when she ended it?

then started getting with a friend

Effectively ending a friendship too, but wait didn’t take but two seconds ‘fore she’s running back to you.

Again and again, time after time Em 
When’s the last time she wrote you a love note, she’s made you a foot note but you are a base note the root of the chord, your loves an open door. Opened for a treble clef, meaning she’s trouble chef, cooked up trouble then upped and left. They call stealing hearts theft for a reason. Please please PLEASE reason with me.

Em: yeah I Don’t care what you say, I’m not ending it!

Tell me not to text her, I’m still sending it OH YEAH!

Tell me to cut all ties, I won’t defriend her till I die

Because I love her to death SO SAVE YOUR BREATH

Stop fucking judging my relationship

Sure it’s not perfect, but what couple is?

Best friend, I don’t care what you say, She is here to stay

Because in my whole life I’ve never felt this way

Being so in love makes you a little CRAY CRAY

I’m not being defensive, because I will admit it

I AM TOTALLY IN LOVE AND THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH IT

(FASTER)

Cali: It ain’t healthy to feel like you got sea feet on steady solid ground, only leads to tripping. Maybe I am callous, but it’s already hard to balance all

The shit in your life without a ready knife cutting plans to pieces. Em I don’t care how good she kisses you deserve the best and this is, this is making you a hot mess, and I miss having you be my base. Girl you can be that base, that belting, booming, badass bass line, bottom line you don’t need no off key treble 

…DO YOU HEAR ME

(DRUM SHIFT)

Em: You’re not the one loving her,

you’re not the one fucking her

so what makes you think you have the

right to be the one judging her?

Cali: She’s not the one loving you,

she is the one fucking you

What makes you think you can say who I judge too?

Em: You’re not the one taking care, you’re not the one brushing her hair

You’re not the one who is scared…

Cali: She makes you impaired

She can brush her own hair

Shit, she makes me scared

Well I don’t care what you say, I’m not ending it!

Tell me not to text her, I’m still sending it (WITH A PICTURE OF MY TITS)

Tell me to cut all ties, I won’t de-friend her till I die

Because I love her

I love you

I love her, to death…

Oh Em….

WHAT?!

 Seriously… only $.99!! Get the song here.

Breakup Recovery Program Helps You Find the Perfect Partner

September 10, 2014 by Kelsey Macdonald | 0 comments

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zNnWtlfcc30

I’m Janelle Klander and I am a coach, a healer, and a wedding officiant. My main goal is to empower women to live their dream lives and inspire them to be authentic. I decided to specialize in breakups because so many people were coming to me that were still stuck in a past relationship and their past relationship was affecting their present and their future. Not just in relationships, but in other areas of their life. I wanted to help these people, give them an easier way, an easier process to get through this healing.

I’ve had over a decade of experience with breakups and I’m really grateful for all of those relationships and all the breakups. They’ve taught me so much. Looking back on that, I wish that I was given a process. I wish that I was given encouragement and empowerment, as opposed to feeling like a failure.

Essentially people want to be with a partner. We have that yearning. We want to be with somebody. We want to share these experiences in life. But if you’re repeating the same patterns over and over again then you’re not going to have that opportunity to do that. You’re going to keep dating that same person. Or the same things are going to come up for you.

 

So if you’re really serious about meeting that perfect partner then you have to do internal work. I created this program “Free Yourself From Your Ex in 30 Days or Less” because I wanted to give people an opportunity to move through their breakup in an easy, quick way instead of taking a year or more.

 

I’m really excited about having a digital program because I can literally reach anyone in the world and I can reach an unlimited amount of people with these same concepts and exercises and strategies. The only thing a person needs for this program is internet access. They do it at their own pace and then they can go through the healing process. It’s available now for purchase at FreeYourselfFromYourEx.com. You can either have a breakdown or a breakthrough. It is always your choice.

25 Things You Can Do Post-Breakup: Part 3

All rights reserved. Breakupschool.com 2014

Have you just gone through a breakup? If you have, then please give yourself some time to grieve the relationship and be emotional. Breaking up with a boyfriend or girlfriend is difficult and it’s best to let those emotions out. Sooner rather than later, however, you will have to get back out into the world and move on with your life. And the best way to do so is to do something for yourself after a breakup.

 I’ve compiled a list of 25 things you can do for yourself after a breakup. But, just so you don’t feel like you have to do everything at once, I’ve split that list into 5 parts. This is Part Three. If you’d like to read previous parts, head on over to Parts One and Two.

But let’s get back to the list. Here are 5 more things you can do for yourself post-breakup.

11) Dance

Get up, turn on some music, and dance to the beat. Dancing combines the benefits of both exercise and music. And by that I mean, the movement of your body will help you lose weight and reduce stress, while the music pumps you up emotionally. For added benefit, make sure the music is properly empowering. Some feel good lyrics are just what you need.

 12) Hug someone

When feeling emotional after a breakup, who wouldn’t want a good hug? Find a friend or a family member and give them a squeeze. It’s emotionally affirming to know that you have someone in your life who will just give you a hug whenever you need it. Also, getting a hug will boost happiness levels and reduce any feelings of loneliness or anger that you might be feeling.

 13) Go to a concert

Yet another way to enjoy the helpful benefits of music is by going to a concert. Going to a concert isn’t a solo activity either, which can only be a good thing after a bad breakup sends you into hiding. So gather together some friends and enjoy rocking out to some of your favorite music in a crowd of excited people. Just the energy of the crowd will go a long way to distracting yourself from that relationship that you are trying so hard to forget ever happened.

 14) Spend time in nature

Another option is to spend time in nature. There’s just something really relaxing about it. So go down to the park, or the river, maybe the beach–anywhere where you can be alone in the natural world. Breathe in the fresh air, listen to the wind rustling the trees, and just let yourself be for at least an hour. After that hour goes by, you’ll be feeling much better about your place in the world.

 15) Do yoga

Or if spending time in nature isn’t your thing, then why don’t you try out some yoga moves? It’s equally relaxing and it’s great for your body as well. It calms stress and anxiety, centers you emotionally, and is a great distraction from all of the drama of your breakup.

 This part of the list should include at least one thing for everyone to try. And the best part? Once you’ve done something for yourself, you should be feeling at least a little better about your breakup. If nothing else, you should feel a little more in control of your emotions and that’s always a step in the right direction.

However, if you’ve gone through and tried all of these options and still don’t feel any better about your breakup, you might want to talk to someone about what is holding you back. For those that need to talk to someone but don’t know who, I’m now offering Free Relationship Consultations for anyone who’s interested. This offer will only be around for a limited time though, so take advantage of it while you can.

25 Things to Do For Yourself Post-Breakup: Part 2

Copyright 2014 Breakupschool.com All rights reserved.

In a relationship you spend a lot of time doing things for your significant other. And that’s fine! But once you’ve gone through a breakup and that person is out of your life then it’s time to stop putting them first. Now it is all about you and to begin practicing that, start by doing something just for yourself after your breakup.

I’ve made a list of things you can do after a breakup to help you with this, broken into a series of five parts. Of the series, this is Part 2. If you’re interested in learning about more things you can do for yourself after a breakup, head on back to Part 1. After reading that, you can continue reading here.

Some more things you can do for yourself post-breakup are:

6) Go for a walk

Get out in the fresh air by taking a walk. Whether the walk is long or short, the act of stretching your legs and moving around will help push all of the doubts and fears and pain of your breakup to the side for a little bit and clear your head. Going for a walk will also be exercise so it will do both you, and your body, some good.

7) Go shopping

Another option is to get out your wallet and head for the shops for some retail therapy. Shopping is a great distraction from a breakup and can be a lot of fun. Buy yourself a new dress, a nice necklace, or an interesting book. You don’t want to go crazy and start throwing your money away, but spending some time inside your favorite stores and enjoying yourself can be surprisingly helpful after a breakup.

8) Meditate

If shopping isn’t your thing, then you can also try meditation. Find a comfortable place in a quiet and dimly lit room. Sit or lay down and concentrate on your breathing. As thoughts come up, acknowledge them and then set them aside. Keep this up for at least five minutes if you’re new to meditation or keep going for as long as you’d like. When you finally come back to reality, you’ll be relaxed and ready to face the world again.

9) Listen to music

If you’re not the quiet, contemplative type, then why don’t you listen to some music? Head into your room and blast your radio. Or, if the noise level is an issue, then put on some headphones and listen to your iPod. Dance if you want to, or sing along to your favorite songs. This is a great way to pump yourself up and get you feeling good again.

10) Play board games

It’s always good to be social after a breakup, so another thing you could do is invite some friends over and have a game night. Play board games like Life and Monopoly, roll out the Twister mat and get bendy, or maybe start a game of charades and do impressions of your favorite celebrities. Overall, just have fun and forget about your ex for a while.

This list should include something for everyone to try at least once. And, once you’ve done something for yourself, you should be feeling at least a little better about your breakup. After all, you’re proving that you can be good to yourself and move on with your life.

However, if you’ve gone through and tried all of these options and still don’t feel any better about your breakup, you might want to talk to someone about what is holding you back. For those that need to talk to someone but don’t know who, I’m giving Complimentary Clarity Sessions for anyone who’s interested. Normally a Session like this would cost around $90, but today I’m offering it for free!
