Some of us may spend our entire lives putting the needs of others above our own. But what happens when we define our self-worth based on how well we suppress our own needs, wants, goals, and dreams?

Monica Vandermeer chose to break this cycle within her marriage and set a powerful example of love, openness, self-acceptance, and truth for her family and loved ones.

As the host of the Front Seat – The Road Back to You podcast, she’s created a space for others to share their stories of transformation and explore the “Aha” moments when they realized it was time to make a change.

Monica’s natural ability to get right to the heart of parenting, relationships, mental and physical health, is what makes this such a special episode.

Now, more than ever, it’s important for all of us to remember that if we can change our narrative, we can change our life.

As a writer and a licensed marriage and family therapist, her ability to explore difficult topics with bold and heart-centered wittiness made her the perfect choice for my next guest.

Eve is also the host of the Everything’s Relative podcast where she explores the modern landscape of DNA testing and how we can change the conversation around secrets, shame, family, and identity.

Her insights into parenting, marriage, sex, existential crisis and childhood issues were enough to fill two episodes, so that’s exactly what we did.

In Part 1 of my interview with Eve, we explore what it means to be a parent in the midst of COVID-19, how to effectively communicate with your partner, and how the layers of our identity can evolve over time.
