Digging in and dealing with ODD and other tough stuff

Harvesting U: A Momma Community

Jan 6 2022 • 28 mins

Digging in is all about finding the patience and courage to make ‘it’ happen.  But how can we trudge through the tough stuff?  In this conversation, Aubrey and Theresa get real about the challenges they face and how they dig in to find strength, understanding, and commitment to try their best to flourish through the rough spots of being a momma, a partner, and a friend.  How do we deal with those 5 seconds of shame when we are at our worst? Whether no one is looking or if it's caught on camera, how do we navigate those unsettling feelings of being caught short of who we want to be? Instead of taking an easy road, we're digging in and dealing with the tough stuff that life is throwing at us.  Theresa takes us through some real-life challenges of raising a child with ODD (oppositional defiant disorder). While it's been a struggle at times, she has learned so much about giving the gift of understanding, and being able to put herself in her son's shoes to see the world in a very different way than what's natural to her. And today, she's grateful that he's thriving.  We find strength in our bonds with our tribe, and we are better because of your support.  We'd love to hear your thoughts about this Harvesting U conversation.  And check out more conversations and Quick Bites of inspiration https://linktr.ee/harvestingu Aubrey and Theresa share a new conversation about real momma life every Wednesday at 8pmET.
