How to be Unconditionally Empathetic

How to be Unconditionally Empathetic

With so many resources out there on empathy…why do we still struggle to be empathetic (both personally and as a society)?  It’s all because we’re missing the first step—turning acceptance and understanding towards ourselves. If we deny ourselves empathy, we deny the world it too.  I learned this technique in a really wacky, unconventional way, but it’s one of the most critical on my road to recovery. Without it, I don’t think I could cope with the...

Codependent Relationships: How to Avoid, Heal, and Prevent Them

Codependency has become a dirty word. It casts shame on a person, leaving them with the stigma of being “needy” or “draining” or “burdensome.” Being codependent, or being in a codependent relationship, does not make anyone a bad person.

“Am I Enough?” Yes! And Here’s How to Believe It blog

“Am I Enough?” Yes! And Here’s How to Believe It

I don’t think there is anything that plagues us survivors more than the question, “Am I enough?” Our abusers, day after day, told us something was wrong with us. That we were bad and unworthy. That our purpose in this world was to be hurt. Your abuser kept their control over you by convincing you that you deserved to be hurt. And they did this by making you think something was wrong with you—without ever...
