What is Reactive Abuse?
Gabby Petito did not have an anger problem. I believe what we saw on video was Reactive Abuse. I share what Reactive Abuse is and why it can create more problems for the victim and help the abuser look innocent. I've been creating response videos as podcasts to address what I've seen in comments and the media regarding the Gabby Petito case. Mainly based on people assuming she was off-kilter with mental health problems, whiney, or had anger issues. I believe she was suffering from mental health issues but that they were brought on by living with an abusive partner. And what people witnessed as well what she described in the video was reactive abuse. I believe she was exhausted. She was lashing out pushed to the limit by her boyfriend, Brian--now on the run following her murder. If you or a friend is in one of these relationships and seeking help or more information on how to handle it please call or visit the Domestic Violence hotline for anonymous support via phone/text or online. 1-800-thehotline or thehotline.org Watch the video series on YouTube https://www.youtube.com/c/TheAudaciousLifePodcast/ What is Reactive Abuse? https://yanahelps.com/blog/what-is-reactive-abuse/

Gabby Petito's Obvious Abuse Signs Missed - Ep 86
Gabby Petito's Obvious Abuse signs were missed. In this video, I share the classic signs of emotional abuse and control associated with narcissistic abuse and all the "professionals" who identified Brian as the victim and dismissed the signs that many of us viewing the police bodycam video saw as obvious classic signs. All of this points to the need for more Abuse Identification Training which could have saved her life. If you know someone in one of these abusive and controlling relationships, or if you see yourself in Gabby's story, please reach out to the Domestic Violence hotline. You can do so anonymously. They can listen, offer support, and help you understand the cycle of abuse and how to get help or get out. https://www.thehotline.org/ or 1-800-THE-HOTLINE If you want to support Gabby's family and their new foundation to help parents find their missing children, see https://gabbypetitofoundation.org/ Please take care of yourself and remember that it's positive to ask for the help of someone you trust. xoxo!!!

The setbacks on the courts due to lockdown have allowed her more time to heal with little to no contact. And her husband was restricted from seeing her legally while on bail. How the lockdown amplified and exposed existing domestic abuse and control.

Why Calming Our Nervous System is Essential to Thrive
After my interview with Katrina Sorrentino about leaving a toxic relationship much of what she said struck a cord. One thing that stood out was the need to calm our nervous systems. It's essential and it coincided with multiple lessons and content about this from Somatic Therapists who help heal trauma. In this short episode, I'm sharing my thoughts before we move on to the next interview about leaving abuse with Kate Heaton. I'm doing this intentionally because attention to our nervous system and a sense of "safety" is what we need to feel okay to explore leaving or even listening to others' stories. To understand more about this concept I've collected a few podcasts and videos below. Here's a related episode I recorded for Audacious Mamas https://www.audaciousmamas.com/relaxation-and-safety-keys-to-success-in/ After recording my episode above, I listened to an interview with Emily Fletcher, meditation expert, and she hits all the points and more. Mainly that you cannot expect to jump from anxiety, overwhelm, and depression to meditation. There's an in-between state of calming your system that's essential. https://youtu.be/6V1hG5wWr6o Somatic Therapy - what it is https://www.verywellmind.com/what-is-somatic-therapy-5190064 How Stored Trauma Creates Somatic Symptoms https://youtu.be/vPIDRm6XtYM

Leaving the hidden abuse of toxic relationships
I interviewed Katrina Lillian Sorrentino. She shares her story of being sucked into an emotionally and psychologically abusive relationship with a man who may be a narcissist, sociopath, or something else. She's not sure, but he was toxic, deceptive, abusive, and controlling. Her relationship trauma was so intense and extreme that she created a documentary about the experience and is now building an intentional community to support others involved in hidden abuse, the psychological impact, and ways to heal and get help. Mentioned in this episode Opening up to life after divorce Disney princess syndrome warps what's acceptable Being Vulnerable and in transition and how you can be targeted Confusion and bliss intermixed with boundary crossing, psychological abuse, and trauma bonding creates a toxic cocktail of addiction to the person and the situation Connecting with people online who dated or were also targeted by her ex Being aware online and understanding that hashtags and abuse accounts can have predators Her documentary as therapy to connect with others and heal How she's using this experience moving forward in stories for TV/Film and as an activist The fear that held her back from asking questions that would've blown all of it wide open Her best friend's findings and how that led to her leaving Why she went back How her criteria for "romantic" has changed dramatically How she's healing and dating now Check out her documentary Tidal https://tidaldocumentary.com/ Follow Treena on Instagram https://www.instagram.com/treenaphoto/ Check out Narcinon https://www.narcinon.org/ Check out Trauma Therapist Shannon Thomas https://shannonthomas.com/ Shannon's Keep Dreaming Big Project for Abuse Survivors (granting their wishes) https://healingfromhiddenabuse.com/keep-dreaming-big/

Embrace the Grey Rock Method Ep. 81
I think you probably may know or have heard of the Grey Rock method by now. If so, it's worth listening as I share one character you can channel if you're not quite sure what Grey Rock looks like in practice. Mainly, it's about holding your power. Staying grounded, calm, neutral, and I think immovable or unimpressed and non-reactive. One thought to keep in mind is simply this, do NOT take the bait! The idea is that the toxic and unreasonable person you're dealing with enjoys getting a rise out of you. So don't give energy or reaction to elicit more from them. Keep conversations short, only share what they "need to know." Don't give any extra information and remain unemotional in your communication. Be intentionally dull. Here's a longer article from Medical News Today. https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/grey-rock#why-use-it Dr. Ramani's YouTube channel - Narcissist Expert https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC9Qixc77KhCo88E5muxUjmA Do you use Grey Rock? Does it work for you? I'd Love to hear about it either way!! If so, reach out via the The Audacious Life website and let me know via the contact form or by leaving a voice message -- it's the blue microphone icon on the bottom right. You can also DM me from Instagram @AudaciousLife I'd love to hear from you and support you!

What is Gaslighting? Ep 80
Gaslighting is a term that comes up a lot when dealing with personality disorders, i.e., narcissists, sociopaths, psychopaths. But truthfully, anyone is capable of this behavior, and it can even pop up as a way to cover up for narcissists and protect their reputation. You may find yourself denying reality to your family or community if you're in one of these relationships. In this brief definition episode, I cover what it is and offer concrete examples that may appear in toxic and controlling relationships. I've created a handful of shorter episodes with definitions for anyone new to this topic and confused by unfamiliar terms. gas·light /ˈɡaslīt/ Learn to pronounce verb gerund or present participle: gaslighting manipulate (someone) by psychological means into questioning their own sanity. "in the first episode, Karen Valentine is being gaslighted by her husband" (Taken from the Oxford Languages website) Please check out the youtube channel for videos of these terms, interviews of The Audacious Life, and Audacious Mamas podcasts.

What is a highly sensitive child? Ep 79
I interviewed Judy Giovangelo, energy worker, healer, artist, and founder of Ben Speaks, her non-profit raising awareness for highly sensitive kids who are at risk for self-harm and suicide. Judy lost her son Ben to suicide when he was just 18. She and Ben made heroic progress over his 18 years and learned ways for him to cope with all the energy and emotions he absorbed like a sponge. Her mission is to expand on that work, to be a buoy for families and siblings impacted by and managing a mental illness. She works with kids to help them manage their energy and sensitivity to others, equips them with powerful tools to navigate life and relationships in a more grounded peaceful way. Judy also works with parents who’ve experienced loss as a grief counselor. After what we’ve been through this year, struggling to stay mentally healthy, I’m happy to share her wisdom and will do what I can to give this as much exposure as I can. 💛 Please follow Judy Ben Speaks for more information on programs and support for kids and families. https://www.benspeaks.org/ https://www.instagram.com/benspeaks/ https://www.facebook.com/ben.speaks Take the Ben Speaks pledge, record and submit https://www.instagram.com/p/CO3MAMDnhJy/ Judy Giovangelo https://www.linkedin.com/in/judygiovangelo/ https://www.judygio.com/ https://www.instagram.com/judygiovangelo/

Self Care and Connection to Self to Heal From Trauma - Ep 77
We, as women, are a little too good at putting ourselves last. We come to this naturally through family and societal, patriarchal influence. But we can shift out of it. And we need to!! Now more so than ever, we're called to pay attention to the inner promptings to save ourselves from burnout, bitterness, severe mental health, and physical issues such as adrenal fatigue, auto-immune, insomnia, anxiety, depression, and suicide. Taking time to connect to ourselves and our deepest desires, yearnings, needs is essential. I know, I know, HOW am I going to do that? You're asking. Start small. The littlest moments add up, and it will and can shift your perspective from dark hopelessness to lightness and a sense of hope. Give yourself the respect to honor these God-given desires. Whatever you need is fuel for the soul and quite literally THE thing that can get you through all tough times. We've faced a collective trauma over this last year, and the impact is being felt profoundly. These intense feelings weigh many of us down, and it's confusing as it's happening as things appear to be opening up. Why are we feeling so dark? Maybe it's a thirst for MORE. MORE time for you. MORE peace. MORE space. MORE beauty. MORE time to sort through what lights you up and makes you feel joy and enthusiasm for life. Mother's Day is coming up, and we, as mothers and caregivers we have had to bear the weight of a nation. We carried the work of home, school, work work, and it was expected often without being acknowledged just how critical this role was and is. Give yourself a MASSIVE pat on the back for surviving. Give yourself a HUG for getting through so much chaos and non-stop upheaval. Give yourself some REST. I had a 2017 crash and burn. I revisited that time with fresh eyes and shared here what I learned about self-care, time alone, breaking away to get a change of scenery, and shift my energy. I'm so proud of all the women I know who've been through hell and back and are still standing. That's you, sister!! You are in my thoughts and prayers for a significant turnaround and blessings to be showered upon you. :-) All my Love,

Mental Health in Isolation - The Impact on kids & family
Parenting during the pandemic has been a challenge far beyond mask-wearing, sanitizing, or concern over COVID-19. Being in lockdown and isolated with schools mostly shut down or running at half the usual staff and kids has shifted our worlds completely. Women left the workforce in droves, 2.3 Million of us: an all-time low, the lowest since 1988. "Children involved in the research cited family tensions and financial concerns as well as feeling isolated from friends and fear about the virus for causing their distress." BBC News Parents are struggling with tight finances, high stress, and a bunch of moody kids who haven't been able to socialize, move around on their own, play sports, or any activities that gave them joy. Add to the long days stuck in front of a computer expected to do work and hang out on zoom, and you've got a recipe for a significant mental health issue. According to parentguidance.org, 50% of parents worry that their child is struggling, but they don't know what to do. And 32% feel their child is unhappy. On top of this is the parental mental health impacting the way families are managing children's issues. According to Harvard Business Review, nearly 42% of employees report a decline in mental health since the pandemic began. So of those parents still working, nearly half say their mental health is slipping. Pandemic has made abuse 'invisible' For some children, the pandemic has had dire consequences with the numbers being harmed and abused on the rise. Between April and September, there were 285 reports by councils of child deaths and incidents of serious harm, which includes child sexual exploitation. This was a rise of more than a quarter in the same period the year before. He believes this is misguided and instead growing up in a world where even "playing with your friends is illegal" threatens to cause long-lasting damage to many. "I don't think it is an exaggeration to say children and their families have been abandoned." [The BBC: https://www.bbc.com/news/health-5586384] What can we do to help ourselves and our kids?

Survivor to Successful Mompreneur with Emma Ferrick - Ep 75
Emma Ferrick embodies all things this podcast stands for. She's a young mother who survived a dangerous domestic violence relationship and found the support and internal strength to reach for a better life when many in her condition would be paralyzed by fear. Her reality was a catalyst for extreme growth and pursuit of career goals that liberated her from her day job, allowing her to be with her daughter while growing her business. What gave her the edge and helped her push through this extreme situation. Emma shares her story here. What stands out for her success surviving this situation and thriving as a mompreneur. Emma had an aunt who experienced abuse with a partner, so she understood what it was. Emma had a family member who "got it" and could lend emotional support and perspective. Often all it takes is ONE person who understands to help us get through and come out the other side with hope. Find that one person! She allowed her abuser's mother to see her physical condition after she was attacked. She documented everything and continued to record details while her case was in court and beyond. She did the math. So many women are afraid to look at the numbers and see where their income falls short. When you look at the numbers and face them head-on, you can make a plan to close the gap financially and get ahead. She decided to start a side hustle to earn more income and break free from her 9-5 job. She invested in herself and hired a coach to overcome the fear related to her abuse and any blocks holding her back from success. She found a supportive and loving partner. Her partner encouraged her to start her business and was her cheerleader and mentor. She's not afraid of her story. The more she shares it on podcasts and makes it a part of her business platform, the less fear she has. She's owning her story and setting herself FREE.

Consciousness and Energy Ep 74
We've never before been in a time like this. Life is a giant rollercoaster, and events are intense and changing rapidly. The mental and emotional toll of all of it has put us in a place we've never experienced before. Never before have I seen the need to be hyper-aware of my mindset, energy, consciousness. And when I fail to stay conscious, I slip into a dark place. I'm emerging from a dark place with optimism sharing my thoughts on why all of us need to be aware of our energy and consciousness. I'll be spending more time covering this on the podcast. Also, my thoughts supporting women and moms focused on expanding our economic freedom via entrepreneurial pursuits.

Mom's are Leaving the Workforce - Ep.73
In September of 2020, a reported 865K women left the workforce in the US. Many of these women are caregivers and moms who felt they had no choice but to step away from work to keep their children's education on track and keep their family intact. In this episode, I share some stats, helpful resources I've found for you to gain support, learn skills, and gain hope for starting over with the flexibility to care for yourself and your family. The pressure on parents is off the charts right now, but the burden on women is far more significant as we fill the role of primary caregiver and often earn less than our male partners. America was not, is not, prepared to support working parents. We cannot send our children to school for a full day, and many child care centers have reduced service or shut down completely. And given the pandemic's precautions, it's that much more difficult and expensive to hire a qualified, healthy caregiver, babysitter, or nanny to support us at home.

Karmic Debt and Instant Karma
Karmic Debt and Instant Karma With all that's swirling in the world around us, it's easy to wonder how people can get away with evil and horrible things and come out seemingly smelling like a rose. Or at the least retaining their position, their wealth, etc. with seemingly little impact. If Karma exists, why is it that some get away with these things, yet you cut the line in the grocery store and instantly feel the impact of your actions? I've been wondering about this too! Today I share what I discovered while researching angel numbers and Karma. Covered in this episode - Karma - Angel numbers - Karmic debt - Akashic records - Instant Karma - Your highest self - Stepping away to ground before reacting - Setting intentions - Segment intending - Pulling it all together to leverage instant Karma for your benefit Some of this may be esoteric but keep an open mind and humor me while you consider some of these ideas. They can be incredibly helpful if you're stuck in a negative cycle of feeling like life is hopeless and nothing matters. If this was valuable to you, I'd love it if you subscribed and leave a review.

The shock and impact of a truck driving into me
A few weeks ago, I was struck by an SUV while cycling. Ouch! After 33 years of riding my bike on the road, this was my first accident. But...I'm Alive. What happened that day was a wake-up call and an epiphany. Apart from being lucky for having survived that scary as hell situation, I thought I'd share my thoughts about how it impacted me on a visceral level. It made me rethink the past year and where I am on my growth journey. And the epiphany I had made me think of you and want to share my thoughts with you as you consider your growth and healing. I hope there's a nugget or two here to consider in terms of triggers, boundaries, and not allowing anyone to chip away at your self-esteem routinely regardless of their position. As mentioned in this episode, I'm putting together an online community and would love your feedback. If you have a moment to weigh in on the survey, please do! I appreciate your insights. Freedom to thrive at home survey Thank you for listening. Please share if you think there's something here that will benefit someone you care about. Lots of Love to you!

Radical Self-care for Empaths
An empath is someone who's highly sensitive and picks up on the energy of others. Many say they can "feel others pain." It's not an exaggeration, and if this is you, you may not have heard the term before, but you'll know right away if it fits. You may be the person who dreads parties and crowds because they can make you feel heavy, sick, and possibly like you're taking on other people's problems. You like people, but you prefer the company of those you know well, and you can gauge and predict what your time spent with them. With all of the above being true, you're also more susceptible to negatively respond to what's in the airwaves, the news, and your surroundings. You're a barometer of sorts and able to read a room, people's moods, etc. You detect these things on a visceral level and feel them deeply. Sometimes you need to get away, find some solo time, a distraction to take you away from all those feelings of looming anxiety. Maybe you do yoga, write in your journal, go for a walk, spend time with pets, get lost in an art project, go for a long run or bike. Everyone is different. This episode is about some basics that will allow you to stay grounded, help with the intensity of loved ones or children. Some of this may be new to you, some of it may sound familiar or even common sense. But as an empath who's struggled with anxiety and depression, early on in life I recall saying, "It's like I have magnets in my pockets for troubled people." And it took me until my 40's to truly understand how my wiring impacted my energy and outlook. I hope there's something in this episode that's helpful to where you are at the moment. There's much more to this topic. We could expand exponentially. The main thing is that YOU must take care of YOUR ENERGY and everything will begin to feel better for you. And that's what we want! :-) xoxo Sending lots of Love and light to you!! Steph p.s. If this has been helpful please share with someone who needs this too.
