Let's Get Honest: Is It Lying, A Liability Or A Limiting Belief? With Coach Laurie Gerber

6/28/2024
Have you ever felt honesty could make or break your most important relationships? Our guest, Laurie Gerber, a seasoned life and relationship coach, discovered that. Laurie's journey from near-marital collapse to deep, connected intimacy is nothing short of inspiring. Initially seeking help for her career, Laurie was redirected to confront her crumbling marriage after a serious argument and her husband's growing interest in her assistant. This pivotal moment pushed her to align her actions with her heart's true desires, ultimately saving her marriage and transforming her life. We then peel back the many layers of lying within relationships. Beyond outright deceit, we dive deep into lies of omission, misrepresentation, and the common avoidance of confrontation. Laurie and I discuss the delicate balance between sharing personal experiences and empathizing with others' feelings. We also highlight how understanding one's past choices can pave the way for healthier future relationships. By embracing honesty and authenticity, Laurie provides hope and practical tools for anyone looking to break free from negative patterns and build stronger connections. Lastly, we tackle the complexities of finding a long-term partner and navigating relationship liabilities. Laurie shares actionable advice on maintaining self-worth, steering clear of a scarcity mindset, and embracing authenticity in dating. We challenge misconceptions about what makes someone undesirable and discuss how to manage personal liabilities, whether being a single parent or living with an illness - those are not liabilities but limiting beliefs. Laurie's journey, including her experience delivering a TED talk and embracing radical honesty, encourages listeners to confront their vulnerabilities and foster a culture of acceptance and truth. Tune in for a transformative discussion that could change how you approach your relationships forever. To find out more about Laurie Gerber, go to www.lauriegerber.com.

5/24/2024
In this week's Shot@Love episode From 'Wolf of Wall Street" Ex-Wife to Empowered Psychotherapist: Dr. Nadine Macaluso's Story of Resilience and Love, we talk all about surviving toxic relationships, trauma bonds, narcissistic abuse, and healing. Have you ever found yourself trapped in a story that wasn't your own? Today, Shot@Love features Dr. Nadine Macaluso, whose life once sounded like a plot from a Hollywood movie; in fact, it was. But behind the glittering facade of a marriage to the notorious "Wolf of Wall Street," Jordan Belfort, lay a reality far removed from the glamorous image. From a model navigating the gritty streets of Brooklyn to a psychotherapist and author, Dr. Macaluso's narrative is one of profound transformation and resilience. She shares her journey of self-discovery, the intense dynamics of her past relationship, and how she used her experiences to fuel her passion for helping others in their own quests for healing. The struggle to find one's voice amidst the chaos is a journey many can relate to. Dr. Macaluso’s account spills light on the often unseen trauma bonds underpinning some relationships. Her insights into the trials she faced during her marriage and the challenges of managing a turbulent household while nurturing a career are both sobering and inspiring. In this raw conversation, we also dissect the cultural shifts that have propelled women from a place of competition to one of mutual support—celebrating the newfound strength in women's solidarity through movements like #MeToo and the push against victim-blaming. But beyond the past lies a blueprint for the future. Dr. Macaluso offers hope and guidance on how to rebuild life after escaping abuse and trauma. She discusses the power of setting boundaries, the role of recovery, and the significance of trust in forging authentic relationships. Her story is more than an echo of her former life; it's a testament to the courage it takes to step into the light of self-truth and to love oneself fiercely in the aftermath. Join us as we embrace Dr. Macaluso's message of empowerment, hope, and the enduring quest for love and safety in our relationships.
