Episode Highlights:

[07:59] Heal your own wounds to be fully present for your children

In order to truly be present and supportive for our children, we first need to work on addressing our own unresolved issues that prevent us from being fully present in our own lives and relationships.

[10:13] Seek to understand through curiosity rather than judgment

Shannen’s curiosity about her father’s struggles led her to understand his humanity beyond her painful past, allowing them to find connection before his death.

[15:05] Growth happens at your own pace

Growth is not linear but a winding path requiring tenacity through setbacks – with periods of stepping back to regroup being necessary parts of ultimately progressing beyond challenges.

[18:04] Keep an open mind through curiosity

Getting curious about one’s own experience rather than assuming all the facts keeps one open to perspectives that can provide understanding rather than remaining stuck in incomplete narratives.

[20:18] Break free from fantasies to discover new possibilities

Expecting relationships to match fantasies can prevent discovering unexpectedly fulfilling new connections.

[23:40] We are worthy for just who we are

Our worth isn’t defined by what we do or how we look, but rather comes from simply being – unlearning this lesson and accepting our innate worth is a process.

[27:37] Jealousy serves as a signal to identify underlying issues rather than as a problem itself.

Shannon identifies the common root cause of jealousy as a dysfunctional upbringing, lacking stability and affirmation, often stemming from childhood trauma that shapes core beliefs.

[37:13] How to overcome jealousy: Looking at projection, protection, or competition

To address extreme jealousy, Shannon guides individuals through identifying projection, protection or competition patterns, then practicing self-regulation techniques to manage anxiety and regain control of physical and emotional responses.

[44:47] The self-regulation recipe for extinguishing anxiety

Exercise. Practice box breathing to oxygenate the brain and calm the amygdala during anxiety spikes. Remove yourself from triggering situations and commit to addressing underlying issues.
