Episode 47: Choosing Peace Amid Drama

Powered by RedCircle

In this week’s New Year episode, Barb and Michelle unpack a quote that has been simmering in their minds, “Please let go of the habit of comforting people after they have harmed you” by Liana Naima. It’s easy for many of us to go into people pleasing mode to keep the peace in our relationships, but at what cost? Listen to learn their thoughts!

Episode Notes:

  • Give yourself space and allow yourself to sit in the uncomfortable and unfamiliar.
  • Remember there is power in the space. You do not always need to be reactive, fix and comfort. Allow yourself that space to determine what is comfortable for you in that situation.
  • Remember you are worthy of kind and loving relationships where you don’t have to fix things.
  • Have at least one trustworthy person who you can talk to, and who will be unbiased and not judge you. Someone who will just listen.
  • Be gentle, loving and caring with yourself while you learning, while you are growing, while you are healing and uncovering what’s underneath.

  1. This episode really touched a nerve. I have grown up with an alcoholic and abusive father. Recently something terrible that he’s done came to light and I have spoken up about it. I’m 30 years old and in the last conversation I had with him, he called me a traitor and a lair. It’s really hurtful, because I know that I have done the right thing. For years his behaviour was swept under the carpet. Now only one member of my very large family talks to me and l have been cut off. Yet, everyday I struggle with the feeling that it is my fault and I am in the wrong. So I just wanted to say thank you opening my eyes to the fact that I am a fixer! It makes so much sense. It is really hard, but like Michelle said, I have to sit in the silence. Let’s hope I can make it.
