There was only one caller, but she shares the same story as so many stepmoms. You’ll definitely be able to relate and hopefully benefit from the coaching she received.

  1. I REALLY appreciated being able to listen to this call. This was a great topic and very relatable. I like that she shared her feelings because I feel the same way about the anger. I like the reminder to retrain our brain and realize where our focus should be. I’m crying right along with her. Great advice, Jenna. Gosh, it’s so hard. And yes, these guys just let it go so easily and we need to trust more in them to take care of things. I, too, am so guilty of ck’g FB and email and then it just makes me so angry but I can’t stop. I’m resolving in 2017 to RE-take that step back and protect myself, be more positive and letting it go. Amen! Ladies, thanks for sharing. I feel better already!

    • Thanks, Amy! I’m so glad you found the call helpful. This caller really was like SO many stepmoms I speak to. Even if the details of the situation differ, the feelings are often the same. In early 2017, I’m going to be unveiling a new way for stepmoms to get positive support, and access to tools & strategies like in this call (and much more), in a VERY affordable way, and I think it’s going to be right up your alley. You’ll hear about the details in my newsletter and on FB, so keep your eyes out for it! 🙂

  2. Such a great call! Thank you to the brave caller for being so honest. It is amazing how we can get so focused on the injustices of our situation that we loose out on much of the Joy in life because of it. I think it is a common problem for stepmoms – we do sometimes get the short end of the stick and no, it’s not right, but we can choose to not let it rob us of our peace of mind. For me personally, I felt that if I accepted the way things were then they would never change. I thought that my acceptance would be somehow condoning poor behaviors, manipulation, alienation, all the ugly stuff that we are faced with at times, sending the message that is ok and that I will accept that type of treatment. What Jenna has helped me realize is that really, being polarized against things all the time was creating 90% of my struggles. The more I thrash around in non-acceptance, the more I make myself miserable. It’s an ongoing journey with ups and downs, but Jenna is right when she says that dwelling on what is wrong with a situation becomes a mental bad habit that we perpetuate. My Doctor actually explained to me that when we are in ongoing stressful situations, we can get “adrenal fatigue” – basically means you have been in flight or fight mode for too long and the adrenal system is tapped. Getting angry can become a way that our bodies can get a bump of adrenaline by habitually becoming upset about things. Interesting to think of it a little bit like an addiction.
