Today's guest, Lisa Romano, is an expert in helping people overcome faulty childhood programming that narcissistic abuse and codependency creates. We got all up in emotions, mindset, how you think about yourself if you've had either of these experiences, gaslighting, and other struggles this kind of dysfunction contributes to. Even if you haven't experienced either of these things, you may find this conversations useful as we also covered things that impact almost everyone at some point - attachment theory, developing a healthy sense of self, releasing unhealthy fears, how to communicate with narcissistic and codependent people in your life, and how other parenting dynamics impact children (especially before the age of seven!). This is one to listen to more than once and definitely share with loved ones who you know are working through these things as well. Thank you!
