    Narcissists & Boundaries

    Narcissists & Boundaries

    Hey Besties! Welcome to the second week of Benson Bootcamp, a boot camp specifically designed to help you become the best version of yourself, no matter how bad it hurts. It’s called BOOTCAMP for a reason, duh!

    This week on Almost Adulting we’re having the difficult discussion about boundary setting. Though it may be hard, these realizations will not only be long-lasting, but also help you love yourself a little more. Violet tells an in depth story about her friend who possesses the fatal victim mentality flaw. Ya know, that kind of friend who never fails to make EVERYTHING about themselves, and when you finally cut them off your life becomes inexplicably better? Yeah, that type. But that’s what setting boundaries can do. It aids you in protecting your mental health, having inner peace, and taking control of your own emotions and thoughts even when you don’t have control over other people’s words and actions. Besties, if there’s one thing you take from this please let it be that you are NEVER selfish for setting boundaries and prioritizing yourself. You are your biggest advocate and supporter, now act like it!

    • 21:00 When you start setting boundaries for yourself
    • 25:09 “We never really know why people do what they do.”

    TAP INTO YOUR DIVINE FEMININE

    TAP INTO YOUR DIVINE FEMININE

    Hey Besties! It is the fourth and final installation of Benson Bootcamp, and we’re ending on a note to set you up perfectly for the month of love coming up!

    This week on Almost Adulting, you and Violet are diving into your divine femininity. What does this mean you ask? The divine feminine is the feminine aspect of the divine power that connects and binds the earth together. It is something we all have within us, and something that if channeled correctly, can open us up to so many things we are unknowingly evading ourselves from. While both masculine and feminine energy are present and necessary in all people, tapping into one's feminine energy can help further receptivity, openness, and vulnerability. In this episode Violet will discuss the pros of unleashing the various types of femininity and how leaning into their presence can assist you throughout your life. By the way, this is not to be confused with old school gender roles, or doing things just to attract a partner, but rather tap into an intimate side that is already within you. Enjoy the journey, Besties.

    Cult Survivor: Children of God

    Cult Survivor: Children of God

    YOU CALL IT OCTOBER, I CALL IT CULT MONTH ON ALMOST ADULTING PODCAST!

    This month focuses entirely on CULTS - where survivors of various cults will be sharing their stories and bringing awareness to the reality and prominence of these organizations. 

    This week on Almost Adulting Violet speaks with Celeste, a former member of the Children of God (now called The Family International). Children of God was founded in Huntington Beach, California in 1968 by David Berg, and was eventually dubbed by BBC as ‘hell on earth’. Celeste brings the listener on an emotional journey, giving vivid details of what life was like as a person born into Children of God, and her upbringing within the confines of the cult without sparing any details. Celeste then explains how she escaped, post-cult living, and her one wish for the people responsible for their heinous crimes.

    How To Master Your Emotions w/ Jay Shetty

    How To Master Your Emotions w/ Jay Shetty

    We often project our limits onto other people because it can be difficult to recognize and confront our own limitations. By projecting our limitations onto others, we may feel a temporary sense of relief or justification for our own shortcomings. However, this type of behavior can be harmful both to ourselves and those around us, as it can limit our personal growth and prevent us from seeing the full potential in others.     

    Today on Almost Adulting, Violetta welcomes the one and only Jay Shetty. Jay Shetty is a New York Times best-selling author, podcaster, former monk, and motivational speaker. He spent several years as a monk in India, where he learned about mindfulness, meditation, and spirituality. Jay's work focuses on personal development, mindfulness, and self-improvement. He also hosts a popular podcast called "On Purpose with Jay Shetty," where he interviews various guests on topics related to personal growth and spirituality. 

    Together with Jay, Violetta opens the door to being more in-tune with yourself as she and Jay exchange ideas on the limitations we set on ourselves and for others, understanding the different forms of love, why our fears can be defined as unformed boundaries, and how to connect with people with vulnerability and openness.

    Confession Corner: FAMILY DRAMA

    Confession Corner: FAMILY DRAMA

    Life is like a game of Jenga, you never know which block is going to make the whole thing come crashing down. One minute you're on top of the world, and the next you're wondering how you ended up in a pile of rubble. But that's the beauty of life, isn't it? The unpredictability keeps things interesting and makes every day a new adventure, or in some instances, a misadventure. 

    Today, Violetta listens to brand new stories from Reddit. One talks about falling in love with his student ten years younger than him while the other is about a 70 year old grandpa who gets tangled in what’s probably the most unrealistic opportunity when he meets with a 20-year old babysitter one evening. The stories just keep getting wild so stick around and see how intense these stories can be.

    The Effects of Casual Sex w/ Lainey Molnar

    The Effects of Casual Sex w/ Lainey Molnar

    Have you ever found yourself trapped in a cycle of self-hate, unable to escape the negative thoughts and feelings that consume you? It's a painful and difficult place to be, but it's not a permanent one. With time, patience, and effort, you can break free from the grip of self-hate and learn to love yourself fully and completely.    

    Today on Almost Adulting, Violetta welcomes Lainey Molnar - a digital artist with thousands of followers online who draws women empowerment comics to liberate women from the immense societal pressure and to help all of us heal and grow through (self-)love, kindness, and acceptance. 

    Violetta and Lainey share their most vulnerable experiences starting from growing through a long phase of self-hate that became debilitating, self-doubt that made you feel less and ugly and unworthy of love, to the double standards of hookup culture and breaking free from an abusive relationship.

    Confession Corner: REDDIT CHEATERS

    Confession Corner: REDDIT CHEATERS

    This month, we jumped into Reddit and picked out the most WTF confessions.  

    While the act of cheating can take many different forms, the underlying motivations and consequences of cheating remain consistent across all situations. One of the primary reasons why people cheat is a lack of satisfaction or fulfillment in their current situation.

    Violetta is back and ready as she sits down to listen to some of the most unbelievable and somehow outrageous relationship confessions on the internet. From men complaining about their wife’s weight just right after she had given birth to cheating men who seem to have never learned their lessons, these confessions will leave you sighing in disbelief! 

    If you want to be featured on the next Confession Corner call Violet at 424-278-4268 and leave an anonymous voicemail!
