Hey everyone, welcome to Beyond Hope Radio! I am so happy to be talking to you today and I just want to wish you a happy, happy new year. Some of you reached out to me over the last couple of months and I just want to thank you so much for thinking of me. You may have been wondering where I’ve been and I’ve gotten some nudges from you to record and I just want to say thank you and I’ve never forgotten about you and I’m not bailing on this podcast, but I really struggled with the timing of it all. I was seemingly bumping up against old beliefs and fears and falling into old patterns that were no good.

So today, I want to talk about traditions and how hard we push ourselves to recreate old memories, perhaps memories from a time when things were easier and how hard that is to do realistically, because we’ve changed.

Things have changed. Family members and loved ones may no longer be with us and how hard it is to recreate traditions that no longer serve us. Like cutting down a fricking Christmas tree, why was that so hard to do? I wanted to chat with you about some of the clues that may be showing up that maybe we’re stuffing our emotions. And how to identify the warning signs that maybe something’s not quite right with us or maybe we’re ignoring some of the things.

Some call it a defense mechanism, but I call it neglect. We’re neglecting ourselves, our self-care. So, listen in and let’s dive into a couple of those topics.

Thank you again for sticking by me, Happy New Year and I’m sending you and your loved ones so, so much love. And remember, you can always reach out to me. You can email me at shar@beyondhoperadio.com and I will respond as soon as I can. Love you guys. Bye for now.

S3E5: I’ve Been Waiting For You

I’m back with a special episode. I, like many, have struggled a lot this past year. But I’ve found some wonderful help, I am so grateful.

S3E1: Learning to Live with Your Loved One’s Addiction

I wanted to let you know that if you are struggling with anything, whatever it is that you’re going through, if you’re struggling right now, just know that you’re not alone. And I too have been struggling over the last six months.

S2E3: Advocating for Addiction Recovery… And Our Loved Ones

What’s been happening? During this episode, I chat with you a little bit about what’s been going on in my world. I know my last episode kind of left things in just a state of flux. I had recorded kind of what I was going through at that moment and I try hard to be as transparent as I can with this podcast while also respecting my daughter. I feel really, really blessed because my daughter is so supportive of what I’m doing…

S2E2: That Familiar Place

Tonight, I’m recording this episode from an old familiar place. I recently learned that my daughter, who had been doing so well. Left rehab after 15 months. She just walked away from it. All the hard work. The relationships that she’d built. Right now, this second, I am sickened with worry, fear, and feelings of guilt … wondering what went wrong? What did I miss? And why?

To The Parent of An Addict

A page from my journal… I’m putting it all out there. For other parents of addicts who may be struggling, or anyone else who has thought about giving up.
