MLT Ep 130 Grief, Loss, The Legal System and Christmas Parades

12/28/2022
Today's episode wraps up where we've been since episode 126. We're talking unresolved grief, loss, the burden of the legal system to restore victims to some semblence of healed and how the rest of closure happens from inside us. We look through the lens of the Waukesha Wisconsin Christmas Parade Attack of 2021 and how botched that coverage has been. Hope this holiday season brings healing to all victims of crime and those who are grieving for lost loved ones.

MLT Ep 128 Life Continues in Dysfunction Junction

12/10/2022
This is the 3rd in a 5 part series about how childhood issues can affect you as an adult and how we learn what we live and live what we learn. If we grow up being the one who is the Identified Patient or "scapegoat" we carry that into adult relationships. If we're lucky, as I was, to finally have enough and go "UNCLE!" we have a chance to be happy and healthy. The Getting Past Your Breakup program can lead you on that journey and make the devastating loss be the best thing that ever happened...
