Ep. 13 - You've Made A Liar Out Of Me

Betrayal Trauma & Addiction Recovery Podcast - Clark N Linda Show Betrayal Trauma & Addiction Recovery Podcast - Clark N Linda Show Betrayal Trauma & Addiction Recovery Podcast - Clark N Linda Show

Addiction and Betrayal can make us feel inauthentic as we submit to shame and cover up what we’re going through. It causes us to isolate and avoid others. That lack of honesty and vulnerability makes it harder to connect with others and harder to recover and heal. But as we open up and share our story with those we love, it helps us connect and be authentic and speeds the process of recovery and healing. At least it did for us! This episode 13 of the Clark N Linda Show is exclusively for our Podcast listeners! (AKA, we were not able to record the video in the studio)

We're learning to connect, to feel safe & confident in marriage. You can too! Listen in or watch the ugly crying on 20 raw conversations from our first season!

BTW I always felt like this (HP Wizards dueling), like I needed to attack him because "he wouldn't let me" share my story. Finally, I could explain it in a way that he could understand and got back on my team and we could work things out and he understood my need to share my story so I could be honest with those around me.
