Ep 155: How to Stop Lying to Yourself and Make Real Change – You Can Do Hard

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!”. The hard that you’re currently living if you’re still using is actually making things more difficult unless something changes. This week’s episode 155 of the Fragmented to Whole Podcast is about how to stop lying to yourself about it being “too hard” and get on the path to healing and thus, less hard!

In this episode of the Fragmented to Whole Podcast, I’m sharing the importance of going through the hard and actionable steps you can take right now to stop telling yourself it’s too hard to accomplish, and just do it. You can do hard because you’ve been doing “hard” your whole life! It is hard to do the change, but once you do it the rest gets easier. Something being hard is not a good excuse to not do the thing; so stop saying, “It’s so hard” and remember you can do hard.

If you do the hard work of whatever decisions or changes you’re trying to make, that type of hard is temporary. Doing this hard work will lead to healing. Be sure to tune in to all the episodes to receive tons of practical tips on living a more whole life and to hear even more about the points outlined above.

What is Fragmented to Whole: Life Lessons from 12 Step Recovery?

This is the podcast “Fragmented to Whole: Life Lessons from 12 Step Recovery.” It will help people who want to heal to move from fragmented to whole.

Hi, I’m Barb! I share my experience, strength and hope from 12 step recovery in each episode. They’re all 20 minutes or less. Unlike most recovery podcasts where you hear a person’s whole story, in this one each episode is about a specific topic.

There are many life lessons from 12 step recovery that are applicable to those in and outside of recovery. This podcast brings some of those lessons to the airwaves, including such topics as learning acceptance, recognizing and overcoming victim mentality and establishing healthy boundaries.
