Hey Love,Has a friend’s confrontation ever felt like a kiss to you? Sometimes a hard, but honest word spoken in love, seasoned with grace can actually be encouraging to a soul. Today, I’m going to talk about ways to help you find your voice- especially when you’d much rather shut down or lash out instead.This is the final in a 3 part series of solo episodes I’ve been doing on issues that I’ve grappled with personally. This has been a stretch for me as a wanna be writer/podcaster….. but I’ve had a lot to say about my healing journey which is probably not unlike yours.You may struggle with people pleasing or eating codependency for breakfast like I did for most of my life….If so, this episode will be beneficial to you as we break down what a non codependent friend of mine did right when she confronted me. I feel indebted to her because I’m a better parent for it.I’ve also had a few friends do it…mmmmm, how you say…. NOT so well…We’ll discuss what to do in those situations too- where the other party might not really be holding out the best intentions for you…. Have you ever initiated a “necessary ending?” I have. I’ve been on both ends of one and it hurts either way. But sometimes, a necessary ending is just the thing that needs to happen.
