    Love me MORE and the need to please! Unpacking Codependency

    Step right up to your meaty and juicy Tuesday because today we are kicking off the episode with some bach chat that has pretty much every media publication in Australia talking; the relationship breakdown between Brooke Blurton & Abbie Chatfield.
    We address this conversation from the perspective of two people who have been in the media wheel of Bachelor finales and how elements of privilege are intertwined with the timing of this particular situation.

    Then we are taking a deep dive on codependence. On the surface we look at codependence as being needy and controlling, but there's so much more to unpack here. 
    These behaviours can be due to how we grew up, other relationship experiences we have had in life, and they can also exist in our workplace. friendship or family relationships too.

    We speak with founder and co-director of associated counsellors and psychologists Dan Auerbach, who has over 20 years of relationship counselling experience. He gives us his professional insight and experience in codependency.

    ASK UNCUT - Burn out, prudish friends and it turns out I banged the guy I'm datings mate... help.

    The soft fade vs honest upfront debate is on!
    Happy Thursday lifers and welcome to therapy.
    Today's episode kicks off with a rather lengthy dilemma/debate from yours truly.
    The overarching question being "is it better to do a soft fade of someone that you're not super into, or to be honest upfront and let them know that you're not interested?
    We discuss!
    We then jump into your questions:
    -My friend is really conservative and I think she is going to take the fun out of my other friend's hens party. Do I discuss it with her?
    -I'm a 'yes' person. I know I'm guilty of overbooking things in my schedule but whenever I try to say no, my friends make me feel as though I've upset or disappointed them. How do I say no and take some time for myself without offending anyone?
    -I'm newly seeing a guy that I like and can see something progressing with. The problem is that I've hooked up with 2 of his friends. Do I tell him? If I do, WHEN do I tell him?
    If you have a question you'd like our unqualified but very enthusiastic advice about, you can slide into our DMs at @lifeuncutpodcast.
    Tell your mum, tell your dad, tell your friend, tell your dog and share the love because we love love!!

    BACHETTE UNCUT - Brooke and Darvid fly off on a magic mower to live happily ever after

    BACHETTE UNCUT - Brooke and Darvid fly off on a magic mower to live happily ever after

    OH MY GOD… It’s our final Bachette episode!

    Maybe ever, maybe just for the year - we’re still undecided. It’s the second last ep, which kicks off with Darvid meeting Brooke in a kayak (sadly there was no cameo from surf dog bachelor). After a quick paddle, they jump on quad bikes and try to escape from the Bachelorette compound. Osher springs into action and catches Brooke - forcing her on a date with Jamie-Lee. They go on a bush walk, which Brooke hates because she’s wearing brand new white jeans. Jamie-Lee tries to save the date by declaring her love but before Brooke can react - Osher picks her up and forces her to go on one last date with Holly. She makes Brooke endure a marathon session of interpretive dance and just when Brooke thought it couldn’t get any worse - Holly declares that she hates kids and WA. It’s all too much for Brooke who storms off mid date.

    Time for the finale, which is between the Persian Landscaping Prince and Best Friend Jamie-Lee. Both get grilled by Brooke’s besties - Amy and Abbie Chatfield. They both agree that Darvid is a total dreamboat but Jamie-Lee won't give up just yet. She hires a couple of bicycles and takes Brooke down to the skatepark to smoke cigarettes they stole from Osher’s dressing room. Darvid then rocks up and takes Brooke on a tantric-sex-yoga class, which is topped off with a confession of love.
    Osher decides that Brooke has endured enough so he allows her to say goodbye to Jamie-Lee who actually takes the news like a champion. Before she can wipe away her tears (and her eyelashes) Darvid rocks up to finish off their tantric sex lesson. Brooke is so emotional she literally cries away her eyelashes.

    It’s beautiful, its heart-warming, it’s why we watch this show. WE LOVE LOVE !!!

    ASK UNCUT - When it comes to casting for reality TV, how far is too far?

    ASK UNCUT - When it comes to casting for reality TV, how far is too far?

    Happy therapy Thursday lifers,
    Today we are jumping into something a little more grim but we've got some questions to ask the producers and casting staff of MAFS!
    Then we're jumping into your deep, dark, burning questions:
    -Do you pick the safe guy who treats you well, or the one you've got the chemistry for that isn't as safe a bet?
    - I'd been on one date with my now boyfriend when I had a drunken hook up with a friend. Do I need to tell him? I feel guilty.
    -I'm looking for a new job. What's the etiquette? Do you have to tell your current employer that you're looking for another job? Do you put them as a reference?
    If you have a dilemma you'd like us to unpack, slide on into our DMs on the gram @lifeuncutpodcast.
    The Australian podcast Listener's choice award is back and frankly, it's the one that we care about the most because it's a reflection of you guys, our incredible community, not a bunch of judges deciding whether we tell too many poop stories! If you have a spare sec, we would be ever so grateful if you could give us your vote here: https://australianpodcastawards.com/vote
    We love love xx

    Pivoting careers, writing novels and switching up gender norms with Sally Hepworth!

    Pivoting careers, writing novels and switching up gender norms with Sally Hepworth!

    Welcome lifers to a laugh and a half episode with Sally Hepworth.
    We sat down with Sally to not only speak about her brand new book "The younger wife" (which you can get here BTW: https://www.sallyhepworthauthor.com/) but also to talk about navigating a change in your career when you've possibly had a different one before or you're a little bit further along in life.
    Sally boldly became an author not long after the birth of her first child so we picked her brain about how and why she made such a pivotal change in her life!
    It wouldn't have been possible for her to be such a successful writer without her husband Christian making some changes in his roles as a parent and within the household. We talk with Sally about what a parent's role can look like in 2021. 
    Sally is witty. She is hilarious & she went to a sex party to research one of her books. This episode is likely to give you a laugh!
    You can find Sally here: https://www.instagram.com/sallyhepworth/?hl=en
    We also touch on the Matt Doran, channel 7, "I haven't listened to your album yet Adele" saga and how it's a good reminder that we need to pay more attention to what the boy scouts said and 'always be prepared!" 
    If you like the episode, and the pod, we'd really love a review on apple podcasts!
    Share it with someone who might be in need of some career change inspo because we love love!

To my mates Laura and Brit

I’m gonna be honest, when a friend first recommended your podcast to me I had pretty low expectations. I like to listen to podcasts that challenge me, help me grow and learn, and at a surface level I thought that this pod made by two reality tv stars was going to be basic and boring. Fast forward six months and I listen to every episode as soon as it comes out and I’ve gone through most of your back catalogue! You two girls have a way of making me feel like I’m just yarning with my girlfriends. It’s so comforting and easy- and to top it off, I am still learning and growing with all of the interesting subjects you cover as well! So thank you for creating this. I hope I meet you one day, and we can grab a wine and I can give you both a big hug and say cheers! Keep it up ladies 💜😁

Love listening every week touch on so many diverse subjects that you learn without even meaning to! By far one of my favourite 💕

Lucky Belle ,

A must listen to!!

This is one of the beat podcasts I’ve ever listened too. It’s fun and informational and relevant. Most of all it’s relatable. There are so many topics they touch on that resonate with me as a women and as an adult. I can’t say enough about it. You must listen!!
