Get to the root of emotional issues and learn the best way to relate to yourself and others by honoring your personal boundaries and making decisions that are in alignment with what's most important to you.
This is not a "common-sense" personal growth and development show. You won't be told to think positively or create affirmations. The Overwhelmed Brain is about accessing that deeper mental and emotional strength inside you so that you can decrease or even eliminate old fears and evolve into the person you want to be.
Learn what your parents or caretakers never taught you about emotional wellness and creating strong, non-toxic bonds with others.
If you want the exact instructions that will help improve your life, you're in the right place.
Should you be more tolerant of bad behavior when they can't control themselves?
Sometimes we can't help ourselves. Anger can come out of the blue and suddenly, we're hurting someone we care about.
I heard from someone that said sometimes you need people in your life to understand that you are going to get upset now and again, and they should be empathetic for your inability to control it.
What is the solution? Should those you love be more tolerant of hurtful behavior or should they put you in your place, telling you to stop or else?
How your body image can make you do things you may regret
If you have ever dealt with body image issues, this is an important episode that addresses the subject of someone who lost over 100 pounds and learned that people treated her much differently afterward,
In this special episode of The Overwhelmed Brain, I introduce you to an amazing podcast called A Slight Change of Plans. I play you a segment from an episode that has a powerful life lesson for all of us.

Can dysfunctions be useful?
Fears you learned to cope with in childhood can easily turn into dysfunctions as an adult. How you cope today makes a huge difference in what happens in your life and who you keep around in your life. Sometimes you can resolve a lot of problems by getting rid of useless dysfunctions. But sometimes you can utilize dysfunctions to your advantage. This is a packed episode.
Does it make sense to try and change a controlling person?
The more you try to please a controlling person, the worse your life will get. Highly controlling people cannot be satisfied because people around them will never be able to do enough to meet their criteria. Even when you meet it, there'll be more you need to give. If you're dealing with a controlling person, this might be the episode for you.
The best kind of relationship is the one where you can be yourself
Romantic relationships can create some of the most complex emotional challenges in your life. From heartful to heartache, from elated to deflated, relationships bring us through a roller coaster of emotions until we are either fulfilled or completely drained.
It doesn't have to be that way. Sometimes the right tools and the right mindset can create relationships that don't have to be so difficult. In fact, they can be wonderful when you know how to deal with the challenges that show up.
When you don't want to deal with someone else's fears, worries, and anxiety anymore
It's a challenge to stay present for someone who is so down and out. Sometimes you go into your own "stuff" trying to help them with theirs. It's the curse of many highly sensitive people, and certainly difficult for almost any empathetic person. But there are ways to do this, and sometimes it's necessary if the person you are there for just can't get out of their upset.
