    Carrying False Childhood Belief Systems Into Adulthood

    Carrying False Childhood Belief Systems Into Adulthood

    Rosie discusses how a seemingly simple question from one of her boys led her to think that really there was a deeper/bigger question being asked - essentially, “what do I have to do for attention, praise, or love?” In spotting that, and nipping that incorrect conclusion in the bud, it struck on an incorrect conclusion she had carried through her life from childhood, and only recently corrected herself.

    Listen along as Rosie talks to and comforts her younger, former self (Tiny Psycho Roise) and stays on alert with her own children to try to beat them to their own (incorrect/false) conclusions, so that they don't carry those misunderstandings or "child deduction" into their adult life.


    Parenting is already a tall order - raising them, teaching them, trying our best to answer their questions, but what about the questions they don’t ask? The underlying questions they may not even know they’re wondering, and the wrong conclusions they come to trying to put things together. Admittedly, that’s a toughie, but let’s try to be on the lookout for those, and try to cover things just in case. Just in case they’re getting the wrong idea of what they have to do to get love, or to be loved, because what we want more than anything is for them to know that they are loved unconditionally.

    Anxiety: Foe Or Friend?

    Anxiety: Foe Or Friend?

    Anxiety, depression, panic attacks. Generally dreadful stuff that we understandably try to avoid, do whatever we can to be free of, or just get past, but what if some anxiety was actually there to help you? Stay with me now! Why is it showing up? What if it’s trying to get your attention to tell you something needs to change? What if you are coming undone because something new is emerging, because you’ve outgrown the old you, and the new you is trying to be re-born? What if you have to let some things go to make room for the new you? New found joys? New inspiration?

    What if that anxiety is actually you being transformed? It’s uncomfortable and unknown, but it could be leading you to something new. A fuller you! Your true self. Let’s talk about it!

    - Rosie touches on her own bouts with anxiety and panic attacks, and how something Richard Rohr said helped her unlock and identify some necessary changes she needed to make in her life and in her career. (the book mentioned - Falling Upward)

    *This episode certainly applies to parents, but is much broader and should be of interest and encouragement to anyone - parent or not*

    ***Of course there are many causes of, and many ways to deal with anxiety, depression, or panic attacks and this will not apply to all scenarios obviously, but an idea to consider and be curious about and investigate. Particularly entering, or in, the second half of life.**

    The Parent (Comparison) Trap

    The Parent (Comparison) Trap

    Being a parent is really hard, and unfortunately it’s really easy to get caught up comparing ourselves to other parents - Parents that seem to have it all together. Could be our friends, our own parents, parents we see on social media, even strangers at the store, at school, on a playground, wherever... But beware, it’s a trap! Don’t fall into that trap!

    Don’t compare! Be yourself! Rosie walks you through how to do that by first identifying who you really are, and always have been. We need to lean into our strengths, and be our true selves, and by extension teach our kids to be their true selves too - wonderfully confident and self assured.

    Give your kids the unique adventure that only YOU can give them by being you, and let other people have their own by being them.

    Having kids is the best... and the worst - all at the same time. All of the time. It's such a wonderful and monumental undertaking, and we could all use a gauge, some encouragement, and comfort ourselves. 

    No matter what season we're in, we all need to know we're not alone. So let's be in this together! Let's cheer each other on!

    Let's remind each other that It'll Be Alright!

    Alright?
