Some of our earliest relationships are formative experiences in how we handle extreme distress, and even more so for romances with unfortunate circumstances, such as being cheated on.
But it’s only after the drama subsides and when the ego finds itself in a healthy place that, that anyone realises how it helps us grow.
Here are three awesome short films from Viddsee about navigating those dark times.
#1 – Heartache? She Found The Perfect Cure. Fabulous Inner Strength!
Long distance relationships and yoga can be challenging for beginners. Kat was a newbie, she might not have known what she was doing. But she pushed herself.

She pushes back, and finds the balance she needs in her life.
