What would be different if you felt 10% happier…everyday?

What happens when you or a loved one experiences personality changes as they leave or re-enter religion? Jenny answers a man’s letter, and describes reasons why our personalities may appear to change over time or with certain experiences.

If you’re interested in better understanding how personality “changes” can show up within different levels of health, check out the Enneagram Institute (www.enneagraminstitute.com) for some ideas.

Repress Me No More

Attractive woman with raised arms shouting to the wind

What is repression all about? Why do we do it.  Why can it feel problematic?  And how do we begin to do something different? On this episode, Jenny answers a woman’s letter, offering some ideas for how to manage a past life of repression.

Listen here or subscribe to “Ask An ExMormon” on iTunes podcasts.

http://www.buzzsprout.com/45915/387371-repress-me-no-more

In The episode Jenny asks for anyone to leave comments on the “benefits of living a repressed life,” or “the benefits of repression.”  If you have any ideas for the letter writer add them in the comments below.  *NOTE: Just because something had a benefit to us for a period of time doesn’t necessarily mean we need it anymore.  Finding benefits is simply a way to loosen our grip on the subconscious, “self-protective” pattern, and NOW consciously learn ways to get those benefits met in a new and healthier way.
