Brandon welcomes back our previous guest, Sharon, to share her insightful journey toward self-discovery and healing from narcissistic abuse. This eye-opening conversation aims to shed light on the importance of recognizing our programming created by intergenerational trauma and abusive relationships, leading to conscious efforts to break the cycles of abuse.
We also discuss how our survival mechanisms can sometimes betray us, especially when they are exploited by abusers. And drawing from personal experiences, we delve into the process of learning to trust again and the importance of protecting our vulnerabilities until that trust is earned.
As we round up our discussion, we reflect on the significance of building connections and focusing on self-healing, even outside romantic relationships. We dive into the energy-consuming nature of ruminating conversations and discuss strategies to reprogram our minds to navigate out of difficult situations more quickly. Listen in as Sharon shares how she found the strength to face her past trauma, connect with her inner child, and take ownership of her safety and unconditional love. You don’t want to miss this enlightening episode about growth, healing, and the power of storytelling.
