In this week’s SHAIR Recovery Coaching call with Omar Pinto, we helped Chris navigate the uncomfortable world of boundaries. At home during the quarantine with his two adult sons, Chris has found himself engaging in maladaptive coping mechanisms to handle his frustrations. Even after nine years of sobriety, he’s fearful that his kids still see him as the “alcoholic Dad.” With strained relationships, unspoken feelings, and living in close quarters, he’s forced to take a look at the frayed relationships he doesn’t want to lose. He must ask himself if it’s worth holding onto them, or if he should begin to set boundaries and risk having his sons in his life to be seen in a light that he undoubtedly deserves.
In this week’s SHAIR Recovery Coaching call, you’ll learn:
- How to identify negative patterns we’ve developed to cover up feelings of inadequacy.
- How to effectively set boundaries with family members.
- How to have deep conversations with loved ones about past addictive behavior
- How to get our needs met when we’ve been neglecting them for years, only to please others
