Taking the blame for their behavior

When you don't know who you are

Have you ever really learned who you are at a deeper level? Sometimes we walk around doing the things we're supposed to do, but rarely stop to figure out who is doing those things. In this episode, I read an email from a woman who never got a chance to learn who she is because of narcissistic parents telling her who she is all her life. Now that she's a wife and mom, she feels lost. If you're lost, it's time to find yourself. Visit https://theoverwhelmedbrain.com/ for more episodes.

What to do when the judgments come out of you

Can there be peace and balance in an unbalanced relationship

Some people have a strange way of balancing their lives. Some folks will pick up a hobby or hang out with friends. But others may take a darker route. They'll betray their partner or become addicted to drugs or alcohol. You may not see that as balance, but for some people, that's how they get it. There are of course healthier ways to balance your life & your relationships, but in this episode, we're going to talk about the less popular ones.

Can there be peace and balance in an unbalanced relationship

Practicing non-confrontational ways to honor yourself

Sometimes honoring yourself around others feels confrontational. The reason is because you may not have honored yourself in front of certain people, so they may not have ever seen you show such self-respect and self-compassion before. You might have to ease others into this new you so that they have an opportunity to adapt. Sometimes this works, other times, you get to find out exactly what they really want from you.

Practicing non-confrontational ways to honor yourself

What to do when you're going nowhere

If you're on a road that you believe is never going to end and never going to get better, what do you do? Should you just accept that's your lot in life and you should just accept it? Or do you take a leap of faith in a direction that leads to the unknown in hopes that life will get better? There is always hope, but sometimes it has to be pursued.

If you'd like to heal and move past those feelings and start living life again, this episode may help you achieve that. Visit https://theoverwhelmedbrain.com/ for more episodes

Working through those old emotional triggers so that you can stop the PTSD and start living life again

Emotional triggers are what develop when you go through a traumatic event in your past, then the memory of that trauma stays with you and comes up at different times causing you to feel upset, hurt, or angry, which can affect your relationships and your life. Experiencing an emotional trigger is like PTSD and it needs to be healed if you want a higher quality of life. Visit https://theoverwhelmedbrain.com/ for more episodes

The intimacy that happens behind their back

Cheating and infidelity can be a sensitive topic. You could be a victim to it, or the cheater, or you could be the one seeing someone who is cheating on their partner to be with you. There is almost always heartache on the other side of cheating. It doesn't mean there isn't healing. I received a message from a woman who is "the other woman", and I read another message from someone who was once the cheater herself. Several angles to discuss on the topic of infidelity in this episode.
