Today I’m speaking with Naja Hall, a family and life coach dedicated to promoting harmony and restoring balance in mending, broken, and blended millennial families. She is the Founder of Blended and Black, a thriving online community complete with support groups, online courses, and a popular blog. She’s also launching her new podcast, “I know I’m Crazy”!
Naja knows how easy it is to stay in the land of victimhood. That’s why she helps new step and co parents get past projections and be unbothered so they can have peace with themselves – regardless of whatever wild roller coaster someone else is on. The truth is, when it comes to navigating a relationship with a new co-parent, we can only take accountability for our own actions and emotions.
Naja will also get into boundary-setting and conscious, intentional interaction with your new co-parent. Although you’ll probably never become BFFs with your partner’s ex, it is possible to create a relationship with them that is built on boundaries and respect. Listen in to hear how to keep a stable home for the kids, maintain loyalty binds without taking it to the extreme, and connect with other families that are in the same boat.
