Parenting styles it’s not one size fits all for any child; we must do what it takes to save each of our daughter’s and son.

Baby Mamma/Daddy Drama Child Support Issues
I have received many emails regarding this topic but one of my listeners had a very interesting dynamic that I wanted to discuss. Why it’s important for us as parents to settled the score on our own and not in the courts. Who in the end suffers the most.

Depression, Shame and Suicide – And What We Can Do About It
This week I’m sharing a story that’s deeply personal to me. A story that I’ve never truly talked about as raw as this: how I lost my sister to suicide and how it hurts me to know that there are so many other people take their own life. What can we do about it? We should be helping out others. Let us speak kindly about other people and try to meet them where they’re coming from because we don’t know what lies behind a smile. If you have depression, if you are undergoing insane amount of stress, please know that there is a way to get out of your current situation. Know your triggers and seek professional help. Don’t succumb to hopeless, fear, shame and don’t think that suicide is the easy way out. Let me know your story, share your story to me so we can bring light to this. Together we can all help one person find their rays of sunshine from an infinite storm they’re going through.

Owning Your Story and Having the Courage to Change the Narrative
I realized I haven’t made a proper introduction about myself, and now with a growing number of followers and listeners THANK YOU for staying and listening to my podcasts, reading my newsletters and connecting with me. Today’s podcast is about why I do what I do. Why do I share these things to you? I want to help WOMEN connect with themselves unapologetically and thrive – which means owning your story from your past – and yet encourage and help you change the narrative if you don’t like how your story is going. When we OWN our story, flaws and all, we can show up better to the world — scars and all, get up in the morning and wear these flaws as badge of honor not because we’re proud of those mistakes but those mistakes from the past made us who we are now — better, stronger, unapologetically authentic.

How to identify an authentic friendship
When push comes to shove, when life gets so hard and we start reaching out to our “friends”, how many do actually show up to help us the way we ask to be helped? How do these people respect the boundaries we have set for our mental health? It’s time to narrow down our inner circle if we know that the friends we have in our life are just there for the good ride – but never getting out of their way to help us out when it’s INCONVENIENT for them.
