What to Do When The Past Comes Calling discusses what to do when old unhealthy habits, addictions, sins, and people who have contributed to trauma in your past show up unexpectedly and cause fear, PTSD, and temptation to fall into old patterns. While each of these are distinct experiences, they are also similar in that there is a temptation to go back into conditioned patterns, addictive behaviors, and trauma based thinking from your past that can throw you back into bondage. You have every right to leave this old life behind. This episode gives you strategies, techniques, and encouragement to stay strong, stay the course, not return to old chains, and live the overcoming life God intended you to have.

Bulleted List of Resources
- Episode 12 Season 1 Christian Emotional Recovery Podcast Why We Need to Talk About the Shame of Mental Illness is a podcast episode I mentioned in this episode to help you understand and overcome shame. You can heal shame if you know the difference between healthy guilt and toxic condemnation/shame.
- Boundaries: When to Say Yes, How to Say No to Take Control of Your Life by Henry Cloud and Peter Townsend is a book I've recommended in many episodes, and it can help you learn not to feel guilty for setting healthy boundaries, learn what healthy boundaries are, and learn to stick to your boundaries once you've established them.
- Out of the Fog: Moving From Confusion to Clarity After Narcissistic Abuse by Dana Morningstar is a book I read that helped me recover from the fear, obligation, and guilt from emotional abuse and helped me set boundaries to protect my emotional well-being.
