    Working through those old emotional triggers so that you can stop the PTSD and start living life again

    Working through those old emotional triggers so that you can stop the PTSD and start living life again

    Emotional triggers are what develop when you go through a traumatic event in your past, then the memory of that trauma stays with you and comes up at different times causing you to feel upset, hurt, or angry, which can affect your relationships and your life. Experiencing an emotional trigger is like PTSD and it needs to be healed if you want a higher quality of life.

    The intimacy that happens behind their back

    The intimacy that happens behind their back

    Cheating and infidelity can be a sensitive topic. You could be a victim to it, or the cheater, or you could be the one seeing someone who is cheating on their partner to be with you.

    There is almost always heartache on the other side of cheating. It doesn't mean there isn't healing.

    I received a message from a woman who is "the other woman", and I read another message from someone who was once the cheater herself.

    Several angles to discuss on the topic of infidelity in this episode.

    When loved ones resist the decisions you need to make for yourself

    When loved ones resist the decisions you need to make for yourself

    Sometimes you have to make a decision you know will have an impact on everyone else, even when your decision doesn't really affect them. They just make it their issue when it's really yours alone to deal with. In the first segment, I read a message from a transgender man who had to make a lot of hard decisions in life. In segment two, I talk about the hard decisions you might need to make in your life when you face resistance from those closest to you.

    Walking around as an adult with dysfunctions from childhood

    Walking around as an adult with dysfunctions from childhood

    There are many dysfunctions that can be learned when you're growing up. Many come from trauma, neglect, or abuse, but others can come from seemingly innocent things too. We don't know the full impact our childhood had on us until we're older trying to relate to other people that aren't those we grew up with. In this episode, I read an email from someone who has learned a lot about her childhood dysfunctions and how she is finding her way out of them.

I really enjoy this podcast and find the topics spot on . I also feel a huge sense of calm when listening to your voice so if I’m having anxiety or any type of nervousness I put on any podcast and it’s almost like a lullaby . So both informative and soothing and very helpful especially for free !!! Thank you ! Jackie

Thank you 🙏🏻

I’m so glad i found this pod cast today. I’ve been having a really hard time with dealing with crisis especially lately with the pandemic. Anxiety due to crisis has kept me from being the confident person i know i can be, and has made me an emotional drain at times to family and friends. I just needed to find my confidence again & learn to cope differently. So from the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU!
