    Episode 18 - Part 2: 360 Degrees of Power & Pride

    Episode 18 - Part 2: 360 Degrees of Power & Pride

    Dr. Kecia and guest therapist Anthony Parham, continue their conversation from Part 1 and talk candidly about surviving, learning and thriving after divorce in Part 2. Here are 7 Questions to reflect on from the conversation:


    Are any of my red flags popping up for me as I engage with this other person?

    Am I projecting onto the other person and why?

    Why did the conversation go the way that it did and why (if at all) did I feel the need to defend myself?  Does that mean I am ready for dating or do I need to take a step back?

    Where are some of my shadow sides I need to look into?

    How am I reacting and responding to what is going on around me right now?

    Have I been taught to say “NO” and honor my “No”?

    How do I best utilize my time alone to heal? How do I take care of myself when there is so much out there that doesn’t want me to focus on my healing?

    These questions and more are discussed in this light-hearted and thought-provoking conversation for those who are dipping their toes back into the dating pool post-divorce. Feel free to listen to Part 1 or watch the full episode on YouTube.
