    012 | Love VS. Attachment - Which One Do You Choose?

    012 | Love VS. Attachment - Which One Do You Choose?

    In today’s impactful solo, Najwa reflects back on the first season of “The Stories of the Soul” podcast, and shares some powerful takeaways.
    The main theme that we touch upon is the difference between love and attachment. Often, our emotions prevail over our judgements and we fail to realize the difference between true love and toxic attachment.
    Why do women fail to let go off unfaithful partners who are the cause of emotional trauma? Is it because of societal pressures? Or, maybe it is just the fear of re-starting your life all alone? Najwa urges her listeners to be courageous and do what is hard but necessary.
    If you are suffering silently in a tumultuous relationship, this show will be particularly interesting to you.

    011 | Najwa | Why Forgiveness Will Set You Free

    011 | Najwa | Why Forgiveness Will Set You Free

    We have a special show today as good friend and business partner, Corey interviews Najwa who shares her how her take on forgiveness has evolved over the years.
    This show is a deeply personal one as Najwa shares some heart-wrenching details about how her near and dear ones caused her immense hurt and pain that changed the course of her life. Her struggle to forgive and forget affected Najwa’s mental and physical health. Sounds familiar? Has a refusal to forgive someone affected your well-being as well?
    Forgiveness is a common theme that most of us grapple with on a regular basis. When we are not treated properly, our first instinct is often that of vengeance. There are yet others who refuse to forgive unless tendered a formal apology. Both these approaches are inherently flawed and end up hurting the person that matters the most – YOU.
    Najwa reveals how she eventually reached out to her wrongdoer in their hour of need. Would you have done the same if you were in her place? Are you better off isolating yourself completely in such situations? And, was Najwa finally at peace when her wrongdoer apologized to her?   
    In today’s show, listeners are reminded of the immense power of forgiveness. Listeners will learn how cultivating a forgiving attitude can help them retain the faith required to build new and healthy relationships. 
    The gist of today’s show is beautifully surmised in this poem:
    Today, I decide to forgive you 
    Not because you apologized, not because you deserved my forgiveness
    But because my soul deserves peace
    Tune in now for some wonderful nuggets!

    010 | Corey | How to Bridge Emotional Distance with Your Parents

    010 | Corey | How to Bridge Emotional Distance with Your Parents

    In today’s show, Najwa interviews Corey who discusses the challenges of being raised by a single parent. In line with the theme of our show, listeners will learn how Corey eventually managed to forgive both his parents and then move on with his life.
    In the first segment of the show, Corey, Najwa’s business partner jogs his memory to share some of the first recollections of his childhood. One of his first memories is that of his mom crying after getting abruptly laid off. Is this when Corey realized that he did not have a dad? And, once this realization hit him, what defense mechanism did he adopt to deal with this pain?
    As a teenager, Corey expressed his desire to connect with his dad. However, his mom put her foot down and prevented him from doing so. Did Corey hold a grudge against his mom for inflicting her opinions on him?
    Finally, as a 21-year old, Corey had his first-ever conversation with his dad. How did this pan out? Was he nervous? Unsure about how to handle the years of pent up feelings, Corey’s defense mechanism kicked in, and he chose to have a “super casual” conversation instead. Should you mask your pain and refrain from discussing your most arduous feelings?
    Towards the end of the show, Corey reveals that his relationship with his father has achieved some semblance of normalcy. Has he managed to let go off his emotional baggage, and finally move on with this life? Has Corey managed to forgive his parents?
    If you are struggling to bridge the emotional distance with your parents or children, listening to this show will give you some excellent insights. Tune in now!

    009 | Alana | How I Survived Emotional Manipulation and Regained My Mental Well-being

    009 | Alana | How I Survived Emotional Manipulation and Regained My Mental Well-being

    In today’s show, our interviewee Alana shares her heart-wrenching and unbelievable tale of emotional manipulation. 
    Our interviewee, an admirable young lady started struggling with postpartum anxiety in her thirties, met a charismatic and successful woman, a leader of a popular personal development company whom she thought would help her deal with this anxiety. Alana’s yearning for a powerful figure to lean on meant that she instantly started idolizing her “mentor”. 
    However, the mentor had ulterior and self-serving motives.
    Alana shares how she lost herself in the torrent of emotional abuse that followed. Because this emotional abuse was sugar-coated with false compliments, our interviewee explained away her poor treatment, and in the process lost herself and her own identity.
    A year later, Alana hit her lowest lows. She shares how she resorted to therapy to regain her mental health and emotional well-being. 
    So, how did Alana go from being fiercely independent to being servile and dependent? Why did she fail to see through this false façade of love? Should you avoid believing that people have your best interests in mind? In this segment of the show, you will learn why it is important to always keep your guard up, and recognize toxic and abusive people for who they truly are.
    Alana shares how a vengeful attitude will boomerang to hurt the person that matters most – you. The latter segment of the show is particularly interesting as our interviewee shares how she managed to forgive the wrongdoings of her “mentor”. 
    Listeners will learn how creating boundaries and maintaining communication can help you achieve closure. 
    Tune in for some excellent insights!
