How to Find Strength and Compassion in Struggle

How to Find Strength and Compassion in Struggle

by Take Heart Special Moms | Episode 137

Join Amy and therapist and author of “Try Softer” and “Strong Like Water,” Aundi Kolber, as they delve into the concept of “try softer,” the idea of giving compassion to navigate the challenges of parenting children with complex medical or emotional issues. They recognize the validity of responding from a place of danger or crisis while also exploring the transformative power of paying compassionate attention to our own experiences. By turning towards reality with compassion, we can process and move on from threats, accurately assess our own needs, and create practices for healing. Discover the importance of acknowledging pain, finding support, and ultimately experiencing goodness and healing simultaneously in this illuminating episode.

What a few of our amazing listeners are saying… 

“I just wanted to let you know I am enjoying the podcast so incredibly much for so many reasons! I have really enjoyed learning more about special needs families and the struggles and victories in all of your lives. Not being a special needs parent I have found that I still find so much in every episode that I can relate to in the world of mothering, womanhood, and/or as a Christian. I appreciate how raw and honest all 3 of you are.”
