In this episode, I'm addressing something we all have, HABITS. Our habits either build us up, or break us down, so we need to be aware of how we cope with difficult emotions, and if those habits are adding to our life or taking away from our thriving. 

Awareness is the first step to transformation.

In this episode, I'm answering a listener question: "The Narc in my life has begun attacking my therapist ie: I don’t think she is good for you, putting ideas in your head, she twists what actually happens, etc, etc. Is this common for a Narc?"

In this episode, we're discussing the Law of Polarity and how this pertains to the narcissistic abuse/codependency dynamic. Many women reach out to me and ask "am I the narcissist"?

We all have some narcissism, however, codependent traits can look similar to narcissistic behavior traits. 

Disclaimer: I am not saying the two are the same in that intent is everything. One side has the intent to have control and have power over, the other side oftentimes has the desire to feel safe, in control (to feel safe).

This episode is piggybacking off of ep 209 where I talk about when you bring up the issues in the relationship to him and he says you need to change too.

I'm fired up in this episode, and what I thought I should say (including censoring my words) to address the social media reactions I received from a post on my Instagram feed this week- is not actually what I want to say. There is zero filtering happening here because this is something I am so passionate about!

I have zero tolerance for social media bullies, and others attacking those who have a different viewpoint.

 

Warning: There are some F words in this episode so listen with headphones if little ears are around!

This episode covers:

  • Victim-blaming vs taking self-responsibility for our life
  • The DV community approaches things from a victim/perpetrator stance, which doesn't work for every woman 
  • Why I set social media boundaries and block disrespectful comments
  • Everything is open for interpretation and perception 
  • What being emotionally reactive and triggered actually means 
  • Social media shaming 
  • Harassment, character attacks, slandering, personal judgments, and verbal abuse online (or anywhere) is never justified 

Everyone is free to hold their own beliefs and views, including me. 

If you're with me and are ready to move toward healing, peace, and empowerment, get on the End The Cycle waitlist for the September session.

When you bring your desired changes to your partner and he tells you that YOU are also abusive and that you need to change too, how do you respond? 

Those well-meaning people and counsellors that tell you "it takes 2 giving 50/50 to make it work" are not understanding the full picture. 

Tune in to learn how you can respond to your partner when he says "you need to change too" and why the popular advice that relationships require 50-50 is not true.

Boundaries won’t work without accountability and consequences when they are broken. If you don’t follow through with the consequence it’s a request or preference, not a boundary.
