    Over-Doer, This is Why You Get Snarky -- Hidden Obstacle to Relationship Satisfaction

    Over-Doer, This is Why You Get Snarky -- Hidden Obstacle to Relationship Satisfaction

    Are you an overdoer? Are you running on empty? Do you worry about people and then get upset when they don't worry about you? If so, you're not alone. Those of us who have difficulty speaking our truth can find it easier to take care of others than to care for the self. And while on the surface, this seems like an endearing quality, it is a recipe for relationship disaster. Listen in as Life Coach and Codependency Recovery Coach Lisa A. Romano gets honest about what makes her snarky and how her development journey can help you acknowledge a quality in yourself that might need some improvement too. 
    Lisa A. Romano is a Life Coach, meditation teacher, and bestselling author who is changing how victims of emotional abuse and neglect overcome subconscious limiting beliefs through her flagship course, The 12-Week Breakthrough Coaching Program. Her online codependency recovery program offers a sound methodology that allows students to take immediate action they benefit from. Her framework supports self-inquiry through a practical, organized, distilled, proven process that results in mental clarity, emotional responsibility, peace of mind, and life skills that foster self-empowerment.  Her experiential wisdom, actionable tools, and proven systems and processes have assisted adult children of alcoholics, and those wounded in childhood, to find the courage to live life on their terms instead of remaining in toxic relationships and perpetual states of self-abandonment that mirror painful childhood experiences. Her program is offered live with one-to-one coaching and as a self-paced course. The next live course launches in February 2023

    Codependent Mothers vs. Narcissistic Mothers

    Codependent Mothers vs. Narcissistic Mothers

    Codependent mothers focus on the needs of their children and fear their rejection which is why so many CDM are enablers and fixers whose identity is centered around their children's happiness. A narcissistic mother focuses on her needs, not the needs of her children, and will feel entitled to exploit her children for her narcissistic gain. In this episode, Lisa A. Romano breaks it down.

    Laundry List of Adult Children of Alcoholics

    Do you feel insecure and like a child, even though you are a grown adult? The Adult Child is described as someone who responds to adult situations with self-doubt, self-blame, or a sense of being wrong all the time, which leads to overwhelming feelings of insecurity. You don't have to be raised by an alcoholic to be considered an adult child. In this episode, Lisa A. Romano, who is an expert in helping wounded adult children heal from the subconscious beliefs that keep them feeling like a child so that they can live with confidence and authenticity, does her best to help others recognize in themselves what issues may be keeping them stuck.

    Suppose you are the adult child of an alcoholic or have been raised in a narcissistic home and want to STOP feeling insecure while crushing codependency. In that case, you can work with Lisa inside her transformational healing program.


    "As a recovering adult child myself, I have created a transformational roadmap for any adult child who is ready to dig deep, and breakthrough the patterns and programs that keep them stuck repeating their parents mistakes." Lisa A Romano

    Daughters of Narcissistic Mothers

    Daughters of Narcissistic Mothers

    Daughters who have felt emotionally neglected by their mothers develop low self-worth, and crippling self-doubt, and learn to beg for approval from partners, managers, their children, friends, and even employees. We are women that do too much for others, subconsciously hoping that whatever we offer will be enough to gain others' love and validation. We disown parts of ourselves and live with a deep mother hunger we cannot name. We feel invisible and discover that our mother's karma will become our own one day until we awaken and begin the inner healing journey.

    If you are the daughter of a narcissistic mother, Lisa A. Romano, the Breakthrough Life Coach will help you gain the valuable insights you need to get on the path to healing.

    If you'd like to work with Lisa and her team and crush your fears of abandonment in less than 84 days, visit https://www.lisaaromano.com/12wbcp
