Episode 143: If I Am Disturbed, There’s Something Wrong with Me

There is a saying in step 10 of the AA 12 steps and 12 traditional books that I share with clients all the time, which has also been super helpful in my own recovery. A lot of people assume it means that they are always in the wrong, which isn’t true at all. That’s why episode 143 of the Fragmented to Whole Podcast is about if I am disturbed there’s something wrong with me! 

In this episode of the Fragmented to Whole Podcast, I’m sharing the importance of understanding this phrase and actionable steps you can take right now to learn how to “un-disturb” yourself and start taking charge of your life. 

Some of the talking points I go over in this episode include:

  • My interpretation of the phrase and why it’s so important to me and for my recovery journey.
  • How to figure out the things you can do to “un-disturb” yourself
  • How my brother’s political views and yelling used to cause a lot of distress for me, how I tried to change him in the beginning of my recovery, and how I now set boundaries.

What kind of slippers can you put on your feet? Where have you been trying to carpet the world? So 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.
