S4. Episode 8: Mother Dearest – Show Notes

Also found on SpotifyApple PodcastsStitcher, Audible, and YouTube.

In this episode, I discuss what my relationship with my mother was like while growing up along with what it’s like today. I take the time to go into detail about why I made the difficult decision to “take a break” from my parents. Additionally, I open up about how other people have reacted when I’ve been asked about my parents and how their reactions have made me feel. I hope to enlighten you with a new perspective and equip you with better ways to react if someone were to open up to you about a similar scenario.

Announcement Recap

  • A few of the previous episodes that I referred to during the announcements are:
  • Additionally, I mentioned that I have C-PTSD (Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). If you’re interested in learning more about this, check out this article titled What is Complex PTSD (C-PTSD)? found on VeryWellMind.com
  • As promised, I’ve embedded a short YouTube video that explains EMDR therapy quickly – scroll to the bottom to watch it. ??
  • My fiancé and I are having TWO weddings! ? Monish was born and raised in India and I was born and raised in Texas, meaning that we come from two completely different background. We decided long before we were officially engaged that we wanted to have two different weddings so that we can properly respect the marriage ceremonies associated with each of our cultures.

Win of the Week

I shared my own personal win this week which was that I was recently gifted a serger sewing machine. ? As an aspiring fashion designer, owning this important tool is going to allow me to take my designs to the next level. Additionally, I’ll be able to create some new items for my Etsy Shop that I’ve held off from doing as I didn’t have a serger. I’m so grateful that my friend/workout pal, Doreen, decided to gift her serger to me as she no longer needs it but wanted it to go to a good home. Y’all, I am SO EXCITED to get to use this beautiful machine!


Until next time friends… Take it easy, stay grateful and be joyful!
