    "Whenever we get close, one of us pulls away" - Avoidance Tactics & A Fear Of Dependency

    "Whenever we get close, one of us pulls away" - Avoidance Tactics & A Fear Of Dependency

    If you've ever wondered why your partner or date seems to withdraw after you've got on so well, this might be why. In this podcast I talk about how the fear of being dependent on people can lead to a fear of commitment, ghosting,  an avoidance of intimacy, and possibly a reliance on substances. This podcast will help you to understand what's happening with avoidance, so that you can better protect yourselves and each other.

    "I don't know who I am!" - Self-Criticism, Compulsion, & Authenticity

    "I don't know who I am!" - Self-Criticism, Compulsion, & Authenticity

    Gabor Maté says that we choose belonging 100% of the time, over authenticity.
    Our self-critic keeps us ‘in check’ and ‘likeable’.
    The part of us that feels criticised, ‘different’, or struggles to connect, is the part that turns to something outside ourselves, in order to cope. So, here, I talk about the road to becoming more authentic and empowered, as a route to recovery of confidence, as well as from compulsion or codependency.

Enlightening

I’m really enjoying this series. It is full of insightful ideas presented in a compassionate way.

I often find myself pausing the playback to reflect on what’s been said and have even made notes, something I never normally do!

I found writing a proud list at the end of each day particularly powerful. It gives me something to fight the negative thoughts with and helps me get to sleep.
