Welcome to the Mean Lady Talking Podcast with your host, Susan J. Elliott, author of Getting Past Your Breakup. Like Elliott's wildly popular blog, books and Facebook groups, this podcast tackles tough questions about relationships, breakups, life, love and loss based on the GPYB program. New episodes will bring you the advice you need to find health, healing and happiness.
Talking About The Blame Game
When you grow up being blamed, you find yourself in relationships the same way. It takes work to get out of the "blame game." Gaslighting and triangulation are deadly to relationships. If you've grown up in a dysfunctional family system, you sometimes fall into this quite naturally. It takes work to learn to be responsible, own what you own, don't own what you don't own, and move out of the blame game. Pls leave comments, questions, suggestions on YouTube:
Talking About Obsession, Following the Ex on Social Media, Infidelity
Many have told me that they can't stop following their ex on social media, they are obsessed with what their ex is doing or has done (cheating). There can be grave results if you don't move on. Obsession is a murky water that will drown you in emotional despair. I use my life and the very tragic Gerardot case as examples.

Talking About Covert Narcissists and Relationships
A follow up to some other episodes I've done on covert narcissism. Please go to the YouTube version of the podcast to find links to articles and the MLT/GPYB Narcissism playlist.
Talking About Those Holiday Blues
Many people are having a hard time this year. The pandemic makes post-breakup holidays even WORSE. Hope this episode helps in some small way.
Talking About Empath,l Empathetic, Some About Shane Dawson
A funny thing happened on the way to the word of the week. It became the YT topic of the week. Discussion of the misused word EMPATH and Empathetic and a bit about Shane Dawson (this is less about him and more about the general use of the word). The description on YouTube has links to others' videos about Shane

Talking About The Definitive Chris Watts Part 2
The second in a series we talk about Chris and Shanann meeting and not being honest about who they were. It wasn't straight-up dishonesty but it was more or less 2 facades meeting each other. All of the groundwork is here for what would become a troubled marriage...trouble that is unknown to everyone until the last final fatal weeks.
Susan helped so much after a breakup, I didn’t understand why I was so devastated, so stuck. She knows her stuff, if you want to heal - fully, you need to listen to her, get her book, and do the work.
Thank you so much!
I simply want to thank Susan from the bottom of my broken heart for all her dedicated work to help people like me. Your book, your podcasts, and your videos save my day, after day, after day as I’m going through this difficult grieving process and my divorce. Thank you so much, you’re saving lives.
She is great
Not only is her content great and so helpful she’s fun to listen to. She makes me laugh more then I thought a breakup podcast would. This is not the soft pink advice you might want but it’s the tough advice you need.
