I realized recently that before recovery I had a set of dysfunctional tools that actually made my life worse and through recovery, I was able to replace those tools with functional ones that make things better. This week’s episode 188 of the Fragmented to Whole Podcast is about dysfunctional vs functional tools & how to stop making things worse!Support the show by becoming a Patreon member! In this episode of the Fragmented to Whole Podcast, I’m sharing the counter-productive tools of gossiping, pretending, lying, stuffing my feelings down, shame, hiding and denial that I used to use to manage my life and the tools I use now to manage my life in a healthy and productive way. Obviously, there are far more dysfunctional tools I could list but you get the point. Through recovery, I have transformed my life from using tools that did not serve and actually made things worse, to me having a whole toolshed of functional, healthy tools that make my life better.

I spent so much of my life searching for something and didn’t know what I was searching for until I found it in recovery. That’s right, these realizations never once came up in the 37 years of therapy, self-help, and self-discovery work I did before going into recovery. And THAT is why carrying the message of recovery is so important to me. This week’s episode 187 of the Fragmented to Whole Podcast is about the 41 things I didn’t know before recovery that completely changed my life. Support the show by becoming a Patreon member! In this episode of the Fragmented to Whole Podcast, I’m sharing a list of things that I genuinely did not know about myself, the world, and the way things worked until I found them through my recovery journey. Some of those 41 things are: I was in serious denial about a ton of stuff (much of which I will be listing here).I could ask for help and accept that help when given. Pausing is a thing & how to practice it!I didn’t have to be in charge of everything.I didn’t have any integrity, boundaries, or honesty. What life on life’s terms meant. When I am late because I forgot to set the alarm or knock something over and spill it, I don’t have to be upset. I had a victim mentality and, therefore, blamed everyone and the world for everything. I had a ton of grief that needed to be processed. I had a lot of “shoulds” and wasn’t accepting what was actually happening i.e. reality.I had a sense of urgency at all times.I thought I was responsible for all the good stuff in my previous romantic relationships and my partners were responsible for all of the bad stuff. Accepting things that seemed previously unacceptable was possible. I understand that recovery is not for everybody but I believe that regardless of the want or need for recovery, we can all benefit from the wisdom that comes from it.

When we’re little, we don’t know anything different than how we’ve been raised so for a lot of us, until we grow up and get into 12-step recovery programs, we don’t understand that what we endured as children was abusive and dyscuntional. Until we realize this and no longer adhere to the rigid beliefs we were taught as children, we remain stuck in this loop of dysfunction. This week’s episode 186 of the Fragmented to Whole Podcast is part 2 of the origins and effects of adult child trauma. Support the show by becoming a Patreon member! In this episode of the Fragmented to Whole Podcast, I’m sharing more excerpts from the book Adult Children of Alcoholics, affectionately known as the “big red book,” and sharing the wisdom i’ve gained through my own journey on how you can begin putting the puzzle pieces together yourself and healing your inner child. Listen back to part one of this episode to hear more excerpts from the book and more about my journey and perspective of understanding adult child trauma. The excerpts I cover in part 2 of this episode include:The underlying terror we hold for the consequences of disobeying the rigid beliefs we’ve been taught. Believing we are inadequate of giving and undeserving of receiving love and making this unworthiness the definition of who we are. Dysfunction leading to feeling powerless and alienated. Diving into the feeling and unfeeling self to protect ourselves from the disorienting effects of living with confusion and pain. Making a change by believing change is possible and challenging the authority that our addiction has over us.Finding unity and mutual support through the group aspect of 12-step recovery to fight against the effects of abuse by authority. We are all beloved children of God. We are all deserving of love from God, from other human beings, and from our families. We didn't get that love from our families because they weren't capable of giving it to us, not because we were undeserving of receiving it.

I often get asked how we all got our adult child attachment and adult child trauma issues and the short answer is from not having our needs met as a child or what I used to think of as the absence of “good things” happening for me in my childhood. This can be anything from emotional invalidation or being gaslighted by our families, pretending things that are happen aren’t happening, or avoiding something big and horrendous happening and acting like everything is fine. The list goes on. This week’s episode 185 of the Fragmented to Whole Podcast is about the origins and effects of adult child trauma. Support the show by becoming a Patreon member! In this episode of the Fragmented to Whole Podcast, I’m sharing excerpts from the book Adult Children of Alcoholics, affectionately known as the “big red book,” and my journey and perspective of understanding adult child trauma. Some of the excerpts I cover in part 1 of this episode include:Trusting the perception of our own lived reality.Growing up in a home with a lack of responsibility to sanity.Denying the reality of pain and abuse and feeling guilty for asking for our needs to be met. Abusing and abandoning ourselves based on learned behavior. Denying our feelings, hiding vulnerability, and relying on codependency to survive. Healing your adult child trauma does not happen overnight. It is a journey. But the more you understand where it comes from, the closer you will be to growing from it.Be sure to tune in to all the episodes to receive tons of practical tips on living a more whole life and to hear even more about the points outlined above.Thank you for listening!

Many of us in recovery use drugs or alcohol to temporarily avoid the feeling of shame, but the thing about addiction is it fuels the shame we feel about our behaviors and leads us into a dangerous cycle.

The difference between fixed mindset and growth mindset is that if you have a fixed mindset, it means you think you are the way you are and there's no possibility of changing. Your personality and abilities are fixed. But if you have a growth mindset, you believe that change is possible, you believe your intelligence can grow, and you believe you have the ability to change your long standing behaviors. This week’s episode 178 of the Fragmented to Whole Podcast is about how fixed versus growth mindset affects people in recovery!Support the show by becoming a Patreon member! In this episode of the Fragmented to Whole Podcast, I’m sharing where the ideas of fixed versus growth mindset comes from, the research that backs this mindset shift, and how you can shift from a fixed mindset to a growth mindset to make changes in your own life. A huge part of recovery is coming to understand that we have certain underlying beliefs or subconscious scripts about the nature of reality and about ourselves, other people, the world, and what kind of change is possible. Then we can work on learning that many of those beliefs and unconscious scripts are bullshit and were making our lives unmanageable. And finally, we go about the business of changing those beliefs to better oursevles. Be sure to tune in to all the episodes to receive tons of practical tips on living a more whole life and to hear even more about the points outlined above.Thank you for listening!

One time I was coaching a client who expressed that every time she got close to finding balance, something would happen and it would throw her off.

The thing with codependence is we feel this compulsion to get in between other people and the consequences of their behavior. When we do this, we become resentful of THEM and make THEM the entire problem when it is us who was enabling them all along.

When I coach my clients one of the metaphors I use with them is this idea that you can think about your precious resources of love, money, energy, and time as your “property.” I encourage them to put a boundary around that property, much like you’d put a fence around your house.

It can be very difficult to recognize when you are in a victim mentality, but it is the most important and the first step in getting out of this mentality. I had no idea I was in a victim mentality.

I hear often from people in recovery that they have a hard time with making decisions. I have found that having some methods to make decisions makes it so much easier for me. In fact, many of the tools we talk about here on the podcast are methods for making decisions. This week’s episode 171 of the Fragmented to Whole Podcast is about five methods for how to make decisions for people in recovery! Support the show by becoming a Patreon member! In this episode of the Fragmented to Whole Podcast, I’m sharing the importance of making decisions, why choosing not to make a decision is a choice, and actionable steps you can take right now to make decisions easier. Sometimes it’s not even the decision we make, but the work behind the commitment of that decision. I have learned that if I don’t know what to do, I will do nothing, and wait for something to happen. I have learned that I don’t have to always be the decision maker.The five methods for making a decision: Ask yourself what your motives are.Ask yourself if this serves you.Flip a coin but don’t let the coin decide, let your intuition decide by focusing on the one you wish it was.Assume your decision will be awesome, no matter which choice you pick.Ask your future self.I still can’t always make snap decisions all the time, but it is so much easier than in the past with these methods.
