Financial struggles, family problems, arguments, abuse and more… will your faith in love be enough to get you through the tough times? I read a letter from a young man who wonders if love is enough to get through anything. To add a bit of challenge on top of that, what if that love is only one-sided? [Read more…]
The emotional healing journey consists of many ups and downs. A listener asks me how I managed to get through my journey and what I can share with others on what to expect. Whether you’re starting your healing journey from scratch or still on a hot path of learning, healing and growing, there’s always more to learn. I talk about what it takes to honor your boundaries in a healthy way (instead of waiting until you blow up), and recognizing patterns in yourself that may point back to emotional wounds from the past.
What are your results over and over again? Are you succeeding in life or failing miserably?
Manipulative people do whatever they can to make you feel bad, guilty or ashamed. If you know they’re doing something wrong, they will skillfully turn it around and convince you that it’s your fault. They purposefully string you along using delay tactics. How they do it is sometimes impossible to figure out, so it’s time to learn a bit more about their methods and what you need to look for to avoid the “stringing along” they tend to do so that they can keep getting their needs met by using you.
Also, I read a letter from someone who’s not sure if she should move out of her mom’s house and go back to Florida. She has grown dependent on her mom and is very scared she’ll regret the decision if she leaves. She also thinks that staying might be a mistake so she’s stuck not knowing what to do without making the wrong decision.
Finally, I end the show talking a bit more about manipulative people. You gotta learn all you can about them – your happiness is at stake!
A listener calls me out and tells me, “You couldn’t take a couple minutes to answer me personally?” I read her message on the air and respond to it. I always do my best to act from a place of integrity… did I mess up?
Also, I received an email from someone in a relationship that may not work out. She wants to know how to balance her own personal growth with the work she’s done in her relationship (and not ruin that work). And she also wants to know if she’s done everything she can do before leaving the relationship. ‘Have I turned the last “Falling out of love” stone before I completely give in to the truth?’
When do you really know when you’re out of love?
There’s also another segment on how an Adult Child of an Alcoholic can trust themselves after living a life without it. Self-trust is a process and there is a way to have it again. Overall, this episode is PACKED with personal growth and development lessons. Too much to describe, you’ll just have to listen!
