How to Regulate Strong Negative Emotions: The Power of Validation

Regulating strong negative emotions is like having a superpower for your well-being. Managing those intense feelings—like anger, sadness, or anxiety—helps us navigate life’s challenges more smoothly. It’s like being the captain of your own emotional ship, steering through stormy waters with control. If we let those emotions run wild, they can take over and make everything feel more difficult.

Learning to regulate them is like having a toolkit for emotional balance, allowing us to respond thoughtfully instead of reacting impulsively. It’s not about ignoring or suppressing feelings but finding a healthy way to deal with them, so they don’t control us. Like superheroes learn to use their powers wisely, regulating emotions empowers us to handle life’s ups and downs with resilience and grace.

In this episode, learn from Lisa A. Romano how to best regulate strong emotions through the power of validation.

Trauma Bonds: Breaking Free

Trauma bonds are one of the most challenging aspects of a toxic relationship.

In this episode, learn about how trauma bonds interfere with rational thinking and how you can break free of such toxic beliefs so to set yourself free from the bondage of an unhealthy, manipulative, and crazymaking relationship.

Narcissists Are Mean: Understanding Why

Narcissists tend to be incredibly mean, vindictive, and vengeful. Understanding why can help better navigate these difficult relationships with people with high-conflict personalities. Narcissists can be mean because, deep down, they struggle with an intense need for admiration and validation. Their behavior is often driven by fragile self-esteem, and they may lash out to protect their perceived superiority or deflect attention from their insecurities. The need for control and a lack of genuine empathy contribute to their mean-spirited actions, as they prioritize their own desires and disregard the feelings of others.

While it may seem like they are confident and self-assured, their meanness often stems from a fragile sense of self that requires constant validation from others, leading to manipulative and hurtful behaviors. When a narcissist feels challenged, they lash out needing to regain power in the relationship. Tune in and listen to Lisa A. Romano help you better understand why narcissists are so mean.

Self Love: The Importance of Loving the Self Despite Abuse

Are you someone who takes care of everyone but yourself, and who feels the silent need to appear perfect and as if you have no needs? Did you grow up feeling invisible, unheard and as if you needed to suppress your emotions and true self for the sake of keeping the peace or for the sake of avoiding rejection, abandonment or some other form of punishment? If so, you may find it more difficult than most to love yourself. In this episode, Lisa A. Romano helps us understand why some adult children of alcoholics and narcissistic parents find it so challenging to put ourselves first. Self love is not selfish. It’s an act of honoring the power within, and when we do not love ourselves, it is as if we are placing the candles we are in dark closets. Each of us is entitled to love as much as any other person and when we begin by loving the self with self care tips, and by acting upon self love, we literally heal the wounds of our inner child, and begin reprogramming our subconscious minds for a healthy, more empowered sense of self.

Sibling Relationships and Toxic Family Dynamics

In the intricate dance of sibling relationships, toxic family dynamics can cast a long shadow, leaving lasting impacts on our connections with our brothers and sisters. Scapegoating, where one sibling is unfairly targeted and blamed for familial issues, creates a toxic atmosphere of mistrust and resentment. Triangulation, often orchestrated by a narcissistic parent, involves pitting siblings against each other, fostering competition and divisiveness rather than unity.

 Narcissistic parenting further exacerbates these dynamics, as the focus on the parent’s needs and desires can overshadow the authentic bonds between siblings. Such toxic patterns can lead to a breakdown in communication, feelings of inadequacy, and the erosion of the natural support system that sibling relationships should provide. It’s crucial to recognize these dynamics and embark on a journey of healing and self-discovery to break free from the chains of dysfunction and nurture healthier connections with our siblings. Join us in this episode, as Lisa A. Romano Breakthrough Life Coach and bestselling author, demystifies the delicate relationships between siblings in light of toxic family dynamics.

When you are codependent, you seek approval and love others, hoping to be loved in return. On the surface, this sounds appropriate. However, when we dig in deeper, we learn that relationship dynamics that are rooted in insecure attachment and abandonment issues are anything but easy. Signs you’re codependent include seeking approval, enabling unhealthy behaviors, denying your own needs, putting the needs of others before your own, having poor boundaries, having difficulty with mature communication, lying for a partner, feeling over-responsible for other people’s emotions, rescuing or fixing other people’s lives, and then feeling angry when others don’t do as you would expect them to.
