Hello, friends. In this episode, I answer questions on healing generational trauma and setting parental boundaries, along with how to keep positive and maintain motivation when finding work in a tough climate.

Question 1:

I love your podcast so much and the range of topics you talk about but I was wondering if you could give some advice on trying to heal generational trauma. I am 18 and I’ve had a very hard childhood and as I’ve gotten older I started to see resemblances of the situation I’m in with the ones they were in. How can I set boundaries when my parents haven’t begun their healing process? How can I explain to them that I shouldn’t be the parent when it comes to being there for one another? How can I help them heal while not risking my mental health? Thank you so much

Question 2:

Hi there,

I’ve been listening to your podcast and enjoying it quite a bit. I have been navigating a difficult and unwelcoming job landscape here in New York, trying to become a writer. It’s all I’ve ever wanted to do, and all I know I enjoy doing — I have done other things in the past, your typical mind numbing office gig in P.R., blah blah blah. Can’t do it. I’m left with one choice, which is to try to figure this out, despite how hard it is and how long it might take (if it ever happens).

My question is, how do I stay positive? Filling out these applications day in and day out is draining me of my confidence and drive. It’s affecting my relationship with my girlfriend — I have too much free time, and I’m irritable and depleted. The thing I want to do is a difficult thing to do, and there are only a finite number of positions that allow it. So how do I keep believing I can do this, in the face of overwhelming rejection and discouragement?
