Episode 10: Living Through Conflict, Divorce, & Co-Parenting with Phoebe Cellitti

Welcome back to IN{HABIT} Episode 10!

Today we are having a deep and vulnerable conversation about the pain of divorce, and the often unavoidable conflicts that can arise from time to time when co-parenting. Our guest today is the lovely and insightful Phoebe Cellitti.

She is a dear kindred soul-sistah, a mother, wife, social-worker, teacher, and speaker. I am sure so many of you can relate to the stories Phoebe shares!

I would love to expand this conversation with your input, and share your stories on the show!


In this episode:

* The shame that arises from divorce.

* The concept that healing is not a linear process. Phoebe's experience of letting ofr of the expectations that healing and releasing grief will be a linear process.

*The upheaval of conflict even after times of peace.

* The pain of an Ex getting with a new partner, and the feelings of shame and inadequacy.

* Phoebe's pain and how it impacted her relationship with food.

* The experience of receiving positive feedback from others during a time of starvation and horrible self-care, self-loathing, and pain.

* The black and white cycle of starvation vs. complete indulgence

* Phoebe's experience of surrender, and coming to a place of being ok with the way things are. Being ok with being misunderstood, or getting the outcome she ultimately desired.

* The very real frustration of co-parenting and the feelings of being trapped and stuck.

* Sometimes the path to Radical Self-Care is choosing our battles, and choosing the path of least resistance. Listening to our intuition.

* Surrender and releasing control is NOT EASY.

* Moving into health can be a releasing of addiction to suffering and drama.

* Radical Self-Care is not indulgent. Radical Self-Care is doing the thing that is most nurturing & healthy for ourselves.

*Phoebe's wonderful advice for women going through unavoidable conflict.

* When others are telling us to "get over it", it is often about their own discomfort with our pain.
