Episode 25:  Interview with Victoria About Forming Your Inner Voice

Episode 25: Interview with Victoria About Forming Your Inner Voice

October 3, 2022

By the time Victoria was seven years old, her parents had divorced, and her mother was remarried.  It was then that she became subjected to physical and emotional abuse.  She was repeatedly told she would never amount to anything and that she would “eat shit” for the rest of her life.  Because this behavior was the norm in her household, Victoria didn’t realize that it wasn’t the norm for others until she met her boyfriend’s parents. 

Victoria agreed to share her story for the first time publicly on our podcast because she wants parents to understand how the inner voices of their children are shaped by the messaging they receive growing up.  She calls some of these voices a “fake identity” because they are the voices of others, specifically the nay-sayers, and not the voices of who we truly are.  We’ve referred to these voices as the “Itty Bitty Shitty Committee”.  Whatever name you give them, they live inside each one of us. 

In this episode, Victoria walks us through her struggle to release the “fake identity” bestowed upon her, and how she was able to break the cycle of abuse.

Episode 23:  Interview with Kathy about her Transformation after the Sudden Death of her Husband

Episode 23: Interview with Kathy about her Transformation after the Sudden Death of her Husband

August 22, 2022

Kathy Perry lost her husband suddenly after 39 years of marriage.  Following the initial shock of the tragedy, one of the things that became apparent was her new identity.  She could no longer think in terms of “we” (her and her husband).  She was now “me”.  Kathy shares her story about that transformation.   She used many tools that helped her heal and realize that we all have our own journeys in this life.  Her husband had his own journey that ended when it did, regardless of any life-saving efforts or whether or not anyone else was ready.  She now lives each day making a conscious effort to focus on her journey.
