Episode 273: Rescuing vs. Empowering: Lessons in Parenting, Recovery, and Self-Reliance

In today’s episode, we’ll explore the profound differences between rescuing and empowering those we care about. Inspired by a recent Instagram reel on why it’s crucial not to rescue children from their problems, we’ll dive into the principles of becoming codependent. We’ll discuss the importance of allowing loved ones to face natural consequences, the role of self-esteem in recovery, and how these lessons apply to both parenting and personal growth. Join us as we share personal experiences, insights, and practical advice on fostering independence and resilience.
