Overcoming The Complexities of Our Childhoods || with Rachel Nielson

Wednesday, March 21, 2018

“Think of your own child being that scared and how you would comfort them.  Treat yourself with similar grace.”   

Rachel Nielson didn't realize how much her mother's long battle with cancer affected her childhood until it was affecting her adulthood, and badly.  She found herself stuck in a terrible cycle of self-hatred and perfectionism, coupled with a Savior's-complex within her relationships.  Years of therapy and growth taught Rachel how to move beyond the trauma of her youth and better embrace her present and, most importantly, herself.

Rachel is on the podcast to teach us what we can do to move past the insecurities, bad relationships, poor influences, sadnesses, and traumas of our childhoods and better create the life we want to live.  She also shares how she learned to embrace grace in how she views her parents and extend that grace to her own life as well.
