Episode Twenty Six: Childhood Trauma, Feeling your Feelings & Sitting with Discomfort

 

In this week’s episode Jen and Sara help a listener who’s written in saying that she can’t stand her boyfriend’s children.

Sara offers her perspective as a therapist and as someone who’s dated a single mother. Jen draws on her experiences of being a child of divorced parents.

Essentially, Sara handled her situation by encouraging the child to make her toast. Jen dealt with things by developing attachment issues which later manifested in addiction problems – hurray!

This one goes pretty deep.
