An episode of Still I Rise!
By Cherry Golightly
This podcast is for those who are in a toxic relationship and are afraid to leave. Those who are dealing with narcissists as well. I am a newly single mommy of two young boys rebuilding my life. I was in a very toxic and unhealthy marriage for 11 years- I was the codependent wife. Substance abuse was involved. I am starting this new journey and I am happy to share my story and experiences in hopes I can help and empower others be strong and uplift those who are afraid.

People will tell you how you should handle things or what you should be doing... don’t mind them and take control of your own life. This is your time to heal and rebuild your life. No one has the right to make you feel guilty for living your own life.
In this episode, I talk about getting through some challenges- which could be considered drama. Look at them as lessons that you just have to understand and learn. Set boundaries with those who bring you down in your close circle. We all have down days but we must keep going.
They always come back or want to come back. Before you start war with yourself- please think things through accordingly. Stay strong and keep your mind clear. This is another candid episode. Challenging emotional times, happen my friends. I still deal with them... but it will be okay.
This is a continuation to episode 18. Our feelings and emotions can still be manipulated after we leave. In this episode I share my experience living with someone addicted to meth. This is a very genuine episode. I am still a bit apprehensive to talk about certain things.... but once again, I hope to help others by sharing.
In this episode, I will be talking about the harder days of this journey. Emotions can get the best of us, especially when we feel guilty seeing our ex spouses spiral. But we must stay strong. I will be open and discuss how I feel and how I have been coping. I hope this helps.
