    I Don’t Usually Share Advice Like This: 6 Lessons on Making Any Relationship Work

    I Don’t Usually Share Advice Like This: 6 Lessons on Making Any Relationship Work

    In this episode, I’m getting brutally honest with you about relationships.

    Our conversation begins with a question from a listener who asked me for advice on how to make your relationship go the distance in this messy modern world.

    I’ve always shied away from giving relationship advice, mainly because after 26 years of marriage, I know the only secret is this: it takes a lot of consistent work.

    I also don’t consider myself an “expert” on the topic because our relationship seems to always need attention. It’s so easy to silently retreat to your corners and not address the issues. And there were years where we did just that.

    In fact, over the past few years, Chris and I have been working through some really heavy issues with a couples therapist.

    Today I share very personal revelations I’ve had about my own role in causing problems between us. After all we’ve been through, I’m really proud of my husband, Chris, and me for making it this long and doing the work to make it better.

    In the process of working hard to improve our relationship, I learned six powerful lessons that I felt compelled to share with you. Not because I hold the magic wand, but because I hope these lessons will save you the pain and heartaches I’ve caused myself and my husband.

    No matter what kind of relationship you might be in, working on, struggling with, or hoping to save, these six lessons will provide a roadmap to make it better.

    Whether you are married, dating, divorced, happily single, or experiencing a falling out with a friend, this episode will have something for you.

    About halfway through, another listener asks,

    “What do I do if my partner doesn’t want to do the work?”

    In that case, there’s just one rule for when it’s time for you to move on.

    Oh, one more thing, if you and your partner are having a hard time… Share this episode with them. It’s a simple way to open the door for a much-needed conversation.

    Why Do I Have Few Memories From Childhood? Deepen Your Healing & Find Answers With Dr. Nicole LePera

    Why Do I Have Few Memories From Childhood? Deepen Your Healing & Find Answers With Dr. Nicole LePera

    In this episode, you will learn how to deepen your healing by understanding how your parents may have created silent trauma that is still impacting you as an adult.

    I want to introduce you to a woman who has had a really big impact on my own healing.

    She is the renowned psychologist and #1 New York Times bestselling author, Dr. Nicole LePera, who you may also know as The Holistic Psychologist.

    Today, Dr. LePera will normalize the common experience of having few memories from childhood.

    This is something that I struggled with silently. I personally have very few memories from my childhood, and I assumed there was something wrong with me.

    It was only when I started sharing about this lack of memories online that I realized I wasn’t the only person who can’t reminisce about their past.

    I now understand why this happens. I also know there is nothing wrong with me.

    And if you have very few memories from your childhood, there’s nothing wrong with you either.

    Today, we are digging into parenting styles and how your childhood experiences (whether you remember them or not) are still impacting the way you respond to stress as an adult.

    The research and tools in this conversation will help you understand not only why it’s so easy to get triggered, but also how to deepen your healing journey now that you do.

    This is one of those episodes that I also know you will be sending to family, friends, and siblings because there is so much empowering information here.

    I personally made all three of our kids listen because I both recognize as a daughter how my childhood impacted me – and as a mom, I’m also very aware that my parenting style has impacted my kids.

    And, Dr. LePera so beautifully teaches us how to take control of the rest of our lives as adults.

    PS: After you listen to this one, listen to “Take Control of Your Life: A Toolkit for Healing” if you haven’t yet, because I’m sharing details from the last few years of my healing journey.

    Plus, there’s a companion workbook to help you go deeper.

    In this episode, you’ll learn:


    3:00: So many of you wrote in about this particular detail of trauma.
    8:00: Childhood amnesia – What the heck is that?
    9:30: Here are 3 reasons why you don’t have many childhood memories.
    11:30: What do psychologists mean by “dysregulated nervous system?”
    15:00: Introducing my friend and world-renowned psychologist, Dr. Nicole LePera.
    17:45: What’s an emotionally immature parent and how do you know if you had one?
    24:30: Two big reasons why your brain shuts down in childhood.
    28:00: Do you need to remember your past trauma to recognize it in yourself?
    35:00: What does it look like in real life when you start to heal your nervous system?
    37:30: Is trauma only for those who’ve lived through a big, horrific event?
    44:00: Here is why the silent treatment can be harmful.
    48:00: Here’s your first tactical step toward healing your body and mind.
    53:15: Feeling cynical about your own healing process? You need to hear this.

    Take Control of Your Life: A Toolkit for Healing

    Take Control of Your Life: A Toolkit for Healing

    In this episode, I’m making the topic of trauma easier to understand by taking you step by step through my recent revelation that I was struggling with past trauma.

    I was one of those people who thought I didn’t have trauma. And you may be like that too.

    But if you have trouble managing emotions, expressing your feelings, dealing with upset, you go on edge easily, you have trouble focusing, or you struggle with anything like anxiety….

    This will be very eye opening.

    The words “trauma” and “nervous system” are thrown around like candy online.

    I want to share the profound things that I’ve learned about both topics and how I’ve started to address and heal the trauma in my nervous system.

    This episode is personal, it’s important, and tactical, and most of all – it’s packed with tools you can start using right now.

    I hope this episode opens your eyes in the way that it did mine, and makes you not only understand this topic – but yourself a little bit better.

    And, to go deeper, I have a free 9-page workbook for you that serves as a companion to this episode to help you with your own healing.

    Just click here to access it.

    And, this episode covers sensitive material, including discussion of trauma and sexual assault. If this topic isn’t for you right now – please skip this episode.

    You are not the problem.

    The problem, when it comes to habits, is the lack of systems and hacks that help you stay consistent.

    There are 5 very specific, simple systems backed by science that you have to have in place if you want to make your new habits stick for good.

    It doesn’t matter if you’ve already bailed on your New Year’s resolutions or if the only habit you think you’re successful at is failing at habits. I’ve got you.

    The Ultimate Toolkit for Creating New Habits: The Science Made Easy

    The Ultimate Toolkit for Creating New Habits: The Science Made Easy

    In this episode, you’re going to learn exactly what you need to form new habits.

    Even if you think you already know everything there is to know about habits, you probably still struggle to apply this knowledge and make change stick.

    And if this topic is brand new to you, don’t worry; I have a way of explaining it that’s fun, and so simple even a 5-month-old puppy can understand it.

    Just because it’s science doesn’t mean it has to be complicated and boring.

    When we make change fun and easy to understand, you’re more likely to be successful in applying all of this research.

    That’s why this episode also comes with a free companion workbook, so that you not only listen and learn, but also go deeper and apply what you’re learning to your own life.

    You can download that for free at melrobbins.com/habits.

    I’ll teach you the three critical parts of forming new habits, and together we’ll unpack the brain research that explains why these parts are essential to your habit-making routine.

    When you’re done listening, you’re going to see that you’re making the same mistake most people make: you’re only focused on one part of forming a habit, and you’re missing the other two.

    I’m really excited for you to listen, learn, and apply all this knowledge.

    New habits begin as something you practice, and after applying this over time, they become who you are.
