I’m super excited today to have Andrea Ashley as my guest, she’s the host of the Adult Child podcast. I was in a step study group and somebody messaged me about her podcast. I listened to the trailer and after listening to two episodes, I knew she had to be on the podcast. She shares raw stories of recovery like you rarely hear outside of a meeting…

I’m kind of surprised that boundaries in the bedroom is just now touching the podcast; and even more surprised that I just now realized that what I am talking about in this episode is even boundaries at all.

I can’t believe I have never done a podcast on the concept of info, not ammo. When you learn something negative about yourself, instead of using it as *ammunition* for you to beat yourself up, use it as *information* to integrate about yourself. This is so important especially in the 4th step inventory of 12-step recovery. This week’s episode 156 o…
 
One comment I hear all the time from people in recovery or who are trying to make big changes in their lives is, “It’s so hard!”.

Probably the most important paradigm shift of my entire recovery journey was coming out of victim mentality.

When I finally discovered that I had victim mentality, it was a huge awakening; what else did I not know about myself? That’s why epis…
 
One of the most important questions I have learned to ask myself when trying to decide what is the right thing for me to do is “What are my motives?”.

That’s why episode 151 of the Fragmented to Whole Podcas…

I used to believe that if I was curious about something, I deserved to have it satisfied, or I needed to have my curiosity satisfied.

I titled this episode as if it’s a command, but it’s really an option. You get to choose to stop putting the blame on others. If everyone else really is to blame for everything wrong in your life; you may as well crawl under a rock because you have no options. I don’t believe this at all. That’s why episode 146 of the Fragmented to Whole Podcast is…
 
Years before recovery I was part of a spiritual sharing circle. One of the people who was part of that same sharing circle had been in AA for a long time, and one of the things he said all the time was, “It’s none of your business what other people think of you,”. It took me a long time to figure out what that meant. I was so codependent on others …
