I’ve promised I was going to record this podcast for months now, and I’ve always been too nervous to actually hit record. If you’ve followed me for a long time, you probably know pieces of my story.
What some of you guys may or may not know, is that growing up my mom was in and out of prison a large majority of my life. I wanted to talk about this in this podcast, because even if you haven’t experienced a loved one going to prison, I think most of us have at least one dysfunctional family member in our life and can relate in some way. In today’s podcast, I spend the first half sharing my story, and the second half talking about ways I’ve learned to cope and move past a lot of the past trauma I experienced as a child and hopefully it will help some of you to hear about the tools I’ve used that have worked well. xo - Natalie
PS - I’m having a massive vulnerability hangover today sharing all these details of my life, so….if I disappear off social media for the next few hours that’s probably why. Be gentle with your comments please <3
PPS - It’s now been 4+ years since me or any of my brothers or sisters (7 of us) have heard from my mom. We think she is living in Australia, but nobody really knows. If anyone has a connection to her or knows where she might be, just let her know I love her and would love to hear from her again.
