Episode 128: Are You a Peach or a Pear? Not Everyone Is Going to Like You

Coming to understand that we are flawesome (flawed + awesome) and that not everyone is going to like us is a GAME CHANGER for many of us in recovery! When we realize that we’re fine just as we are, and some people are just never gonna like us, life gets easier. I give a metaphor for thinking about this which is that – maybe you’re a peach, and not everyone likes peaches. No one blames the peach, and no one blames the person for not liking peaches. That’s just the way it is. Not everyone likes peaches.

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.
