    Are you an enabler or are you helping someone? Join me today as I dive deeper into the differences between enabling and truly helping. Many of us do not realize that we are enabling someone rather than being a help to them. We help people because we care about them. We help them work through and identify things that they may be struggling with. It is not healthy to be an enabler. At what point does helping become enabling? Let's get a clearer understanding of what enabling is, and augment what we do so that we are able to help but not enable.

When done correctly, pre-school can be a safe and formative place for our children to learn, grow and connect with themselves and others. Joining me today is children's author, Jeanette Crystal Bradley. Jeanette has written a sing-along book titled, The First 12 Days of Preschool.

    When you are being mirrored, someone is copying or imitating your characteristics, traits, and behaviors. Does it feel like you have someone in your life that seems to be a bit too much like you?

It may feel as though we are looking at ourselves in the mirror. Although mirroring can feel good, it is important to figure out if these commonalities are true or, is it a case of mirroring.

    Strength to Leave an Unhealthy Relationship [Ep. 708]

    Do you need to find the strength to be able to manage and possibly move on from an unhealthy relationship? Many folks have tried to leave relationships multiple times. They tend to go back out of fear, and quickly realize that things in the relationship haven't changed. We go back into relationships for many reasons. Often, we reminisce on the past, romanticize the relationship, and fear a failed relationship. We also may feel guilt, shame, and the fear being alone. I understand fearing a failed marriage, but is it more important to find and cultivate one's identity? The concept of purpose is a very deep challenge, it's finding your truth, your true identity, and being able to be that truth no matter what. Usually when we are in toxic relationships, whether they are family, romantic, or work-related, we are not able to be ourselves. Instead, these relationships have us walking on egg shells and feeling fearful. During this time, we appear to be in the process of losing ourself and losing the precious time we could be using to cultivate our true life. Often, when we are in these unhealthy relationships, we do not realize the impact it has on family and friends. We need to reach out to our friends and family and explain what has been going on. If there are children involved, we need to take them into consideration, understand how to open the lines of communication, and how to create a situation for everyone's growth and peace. Being true to your values will allow you to find your purpose of identity. However, you do not necessarily have to leave the relationship to learn about your values, to grow, and to begin to find your truth. You can do the work while you are in the relationship. The results of your hard work may make differences that can better the relationship, or it may make it easier for you to make healthier choices. You need to take a deep look into the relationship to see the situation clearly in order to decide what will be best for you.

Throughout this podcast, I will provide you with real techniques to get clarity and understanding about you and your relationship. I will also help you find the strength needed to see things clearly, and begin to see your life without the other person. Once we see the events of the relationships clearly, we can begin to see why things took place and bring attention to the red flags we didn't want to see. As we look further into the relationship, we will begin to understand parts of the relationship we previously may not have understood. We must look at the crumbs we received during the relationship, because at the time we were unaware that they were crumbs. It is essential to examine your values, understand your values, and be able to see where you and your values have been walked all over. As you listen to this podcast, you will do inventory of your relationship, see it clearly, see where you stand, and gain the strength you will need to stand up for what you believe in and stand for.

    Have you ever had someone tell you how great you are, sing your praises, then find fault in you, and eventually cut you out of their life completely? Is there someone in your life who tends to see things in only black or white? They may see people as either being for or against them, and tend to see the extremes. We may know someone who may take this to extremes. However, we must ask ourselves if we tend to see things in black and white sometimes? When we interact with people who have signs and symptoms of BPD, we may see them demonstrate splitting with everyone and everything. In order to not get swept up in other people's splitting, we must understand what it is and why they do it. Splitting is also linked to the pedestal stage in the love bombing phase in relationships. Often when a person is being love bombed, they aren't aware and fall into the trap of the attention. Eventually the person is devalued and even discarded. Because of the experience, they tend to be in a blender of emotions and are challenged to pick up the pieces. They must work to embark on a self-understanding journey. This podcast will help you to identify splitting, understand why people tend to use splitting, and how to avoid falling into the trap of giving it power over you when it is being done to you.

We need to become aware of what love bombing is and understand what it looks like when it is happening to us. When we are able to identify love bombing, it will become a very powerful tool. While in the grips of love bombing the feeling can be amazing. Love bombing usually goes under the radar because for many people who are on the receiving end, they have never experienced this level of care, attention, and interaction. When you're being love bombed, it feels like a whirlwind romance, like something you see in a movie. We must be able to figure out if what is happening is real or are we being love bombed. Often times, the person doing the love bombing is not even aware they are doing it.

    Creating and being consistent with boundaries in our relationships is vitally important to the health of all relationships, but can be extremely challenging to implement. Many of us find ourselves in long-term relationships that have no boundaries. We may feel like it is impossible to create healthy boundaries, because we fear how the other person will react. It is a'lot easier to create boundaries in new relationships because we begin the relationships with certain values and conditions in mind. In today's podcast, we will be discussing, ways of establishing boundaries in long time relationships, how it feels to not create boundaries and not have sufficient boundaries in relationships, and ultimately what happens to relationships with no boundaries.

    Exiting a toxic relationship is challenging to say the least. Our mind makes us question ourselves, the relationship, and if we will ever find a good person to be in a relationship with, or if we're destined to live on our own for the rest of our life. We wonder if we will ever meet someone that we will get along with. We worry that we may be alone for the rest of our life. Sometimes we wonder if we're destined to always be in toxic relationships. Being alone is a huge fear for most people and that fear perpetuates toxic relationships because sometimes we take what we can get assuming there won't be another option. Sadly the longer our core wounds and fears run our lives the more unhappy we will be and the longer we will be in destructive relationships. The core fear of abandonment is another core fear that can put us into relationships that don't encourage our authentic self and keep us in the loop of the toxic relationship that keeps us tied up, however a toxic relationship can, if we use it properly, can create personal awareness and clarity.

    Many of you have heard about ghosting and many of us may have been ghosted recently. When someone ghosts you, you are left with unanswered questions, sadness, and a feeling of emptiness. We wonder what we could have done differently, did we say something wrong, and ultimately wondering what happened to the other person. Usually you text more messages and there is no response and after a while you begin to let it go. However, more often than not the person who ghosted you may reappear when you least expect it. When someone resurfaces we need to safeguard ourself. Some of these ghosts will resurface and others will not. Throughout this podcast I reveal why people ghost, why they may resurface, the emotions we go through when we are ghosted, the core wounds that are ignited with the act of being ghosted, and the various ways to safeguard yourself from more pain and trauma. Ghosting is a way out of a situation without explanation, without revealing the truth, and the ability to avoid confrontation or emotional and mental exposure. Whether you have ghosted or been ghosted, this podcast is revealing and helpful in understanding the reasoning and how to stop ghosting and or how to recalibrate after being ghosted and stop beating yourself up emotionally.
