Lessons in Life and Love with Riana Milne

Amazing information. love that you are addressing this subject of abuse. Riana Milne is educated and tells it like it is on this episode. Very enlightening. I am a mentor who helps people address their childhood traumas and make changes in their current life, by changing the decisions they made about themselves at the time of the trauma. So the information shared on this episode was extremely valuable in the way I serve my clients! Thank You!

Like beating a dead horse

Initially, I found this podcast very helpful, but it soon got repetitive. The host interviews a series of guests that were abused by their spouses, then found the courage to leave. Of course this is inspirational, but none of the guests were men abused by their wives, nor young adult children leaving their abusive parents. The protagonists only came in one flavor. After hearing about 10 episodes, I didn’t think there would be any additional benefit to hearing even more stories. For better insight, I recommend Christine Hammond or Brian Barnett podcasts.
