Episode 119: The Courage to be Known

When we grow up in dysfunctional systems, we learn to protect ourselves. One of those survival mechanisms is keeping ourselves small, invisible, unknown. At the same time, we often develop a hyper vigilance to those around us and feel like we know everything about them. Or we can go the opposite way – overexposing ourselves and being shameless in our interactions with others. Listen to Amy share her experiences with the courage and desire to be known and how we can do a little bit more of that in our own lives.

Episode 118: The Courage to Circle Back

Our world is not linear. Yet, many times we think that is how it “should” be. We work through something, trauma, addiction, relationships, mother issues, or whatever it is, we feel some resolution around it, and we think that is over. Then weeks, months, or maybe even years later, something happens and here we are stuck back in the middle of it again. We say to ourselves – I worked through this already – why am I here again?? You’re here again because our world is not linear. Listen to Amy talk about her experiences with circling back and how we can use the principles of Non-Euclidean Geometry in our recovery.
