How to manage fear is not exactly what the title means. I say this because each of us is different and fear is a much larger thing to manage than a 10-minute podcast. But, do not be discouraged, I do offer up some insight into the world and you will have some solutions presented to you. The important thing to know going into this episode is that we are going to look into how managing fear can be managed.

In this nugget, we travel to the reasons for the topic. Where did it begin, how has it evolved, and why it is so important that we understand it.

In this episode, we look at fear from a different perspective. Distinguishing what it is by definition, what it could look like inside of a divorce, and what can be done to not have it be so consuming.  Anything that stops you from moving in the direction you want to move towards, or inhibits you from being the person you want to be, usually carries some sort of fear around it. The beauty about fear is that once you distinguish it,...
