    TW: child loss, sexual assault
    This week our listener describes living in the shadow of her stillborn sister, as the "replacement child" that didn't stand a chance in a toxic household. Between manipulation and weaponising her disability, her mother has continued to spread the narrative that our listener is volatile, cruel and hateful. She asks if by going no contact, does she really have to lose the family connection she craves?
    Listen to Katie and Helen look at this difficult situation from all angles and offer their insight into what's going on.

    After a nasty outburst on a family holiday, our listener this week is struggling with words from her mother that can’t be unsaid. As the insults chip away at her self-esteem, examples of toxic behaviour in childhood bubble to the surface and she’s questioning everything she thought she knew about her role in the family. But is she really unlovable, a bad mother, and ‘broken’?

    Our listener this week recalls a family conversation about her grandmother’s toxic behaviour. However, her mother is oblivious to how she displayed the same behaviour, and the lasting effects it had on our listener. Despite her mother’s difficult relationship with alcohol and emotional manipulation, our listener doesn’t want to rock the boat by saying how she’s feeling and asks, can there ever be healing in confrontation?

Absolutely blown away

I’ve done a ton of research on narcissism and yet I’ve been completely blown away by this podcast. The compassion, kindness, empathy of the hosts and the content and their feedback on questions from others is nothing short of incredible. I’m only upset I didn’t find it sooner! Ha. Thank you!!!!
