Mother’s Day

 

Celebrate Moms Influence

 

Lifelong Relationship

 

Insights, experiences and lessons

 

This blog is about Celebrating Mothers everywhere. But it’s also about the often times complicated family dynamic that exists as well. But of course it is more specifically about my own personal family story. “Mateja Petje Mother’s Day” Blog is about insights, experiences and some priceless lessons I’ve learned in my own life. For example research shows Mothers play a huge, pivotal role in our lives. This is especially true when it comes to daughters.

 

Mateja Petje Mother’s Day

 

In an ideal world, daughters receive love, attention, support, and wisdom from their moms. This way it enables them to go into the world and follow their dreams and passions. But, unfortunately the world as we know is not perfect, so things don’t always go as planned.

Mothers’ Positive Influences

 

Fortunately, according to recent research, as discussed in the article in Psychology Today, most adults report positive relationships with their mothers. For example, 88% of adults say their mother has had a positive influence on them. In addition 92% say their current relationship with their mother is positive. I’m curious what your opinion is. How do these numbers appear if we use you as an example? Think about it.

Still, in my clinical practice, these numbers tend to be quite different. Many women, young or old, report having strained relationships with their mothers. Quite often, they suffer from low self-esteem, depression, anxiety, and unfulfilled relationships. They blame themselves for not knowing what went wrong and why they cannot form a lasting loving relationship with a man. Many times they did not have a good role model as to what constitutes a healthy and loving relationship or a marriage.

 

Mateja Petje Mother’s Day- Bonds

 

So the bond between mothers and daughters is very complex. The bond starts to already develop during pregnancy. Research shows that even fetuses can identify when their mom is stressed and therefore stress can indirectly affect the child’s emotional blue-print. This is a fascinating area of research I personally watch closely. Honestly, I believe I’ve experienced this in my own life.

Mateja Petje Mother’s Day- Miami U

 

When I was pursuing my Master’s Degree at the University of Miami, I wrote my best essay. It was on the importance of a secure attachment with parents, and especially mothers. Those who are lucky enough get this kind of secure attachment. However, many others who are not so lucky suffer due to insecure and avoidance attachment. This is characterized by fear, anxiety and feelings of abandonment.

 

Unfortunately, my experience was similar to many other daughters growing up in dysfunctional families. My family on my mother’s side has experienced generations of alcoholism and violence. Men tend to be violent and use alcohol as a coping mechanism. Many times this was an escape from mental and emotional illnesses, including PTSD. My grandfather suffered from PTSD and in the end it cost him his life.

Mateja Petje Mother’s Day- Coming to America


My mom was not an alcoholic. But she never healed from her own trauma. Instead she lashed out mainly at me. In my tender teen years, I was abused physically, emotionally and mentally. She never sought help for herself.  This was just not something you did in her day. Seeking help for emotional and mental issues is still stigmatized even to this day.

 

To finally heal from Trauma I had to physically move across the ocean from Slovenia. Now imagine trading places with me. What if you had to move to the US to finally heal from your trauma. You see I’m the first in my family who “broke the cycle”. Frankly, I decided I didn’t want to live this kind of life moreover that I also deserve a healthy, loving relationship. In therapy I learned a lot about myself. I learned for example why I developed Clinical Depression. My healing journey is long and it’s an ongoing process.

 

Mateja Petje Mother’s Day- Blessing

 

At the same time, it was also a blessing in disguise as I have been able to help hundreds of women to heal from abuse, trauma, difficult relationships, low self-esteem and the . The women I’ve worked with now have confidence, improved relationships and they have made peace with the past. 

 

 

Help with Therapy

 

 

Mateja Petje Mother’s Day- Tips


1.    Forgive your mom and let go. Write a letter to your mom expressing everything and then burn it. You are doing this for your sake so that you don’t carry this burden.

 

2.    Think about all the good stuff. Don’t always dwell on the bad stuff. One of my fondest memories is when my mom brought me breakfast in bed on Saturdays.

 

3.    Be your own best parent. Think about what you have always needed from your mom but never got it. Pamper yourself.

 

4.    Remember that your mom is just doing the best that she can. She learned all she knows from her mother.

 

5.    When your mom starts with her “usual” nagging, or she is being negative or critical, just gently disengage. Set the boundaries and practice “tough love”.

Relationships

 

Ten Toxic Partner Signs

 

Imago Approach

 

Mateja Petje Relationships- Prince Charming

 

Stop and think what do unhealthy relationships mean for many of us as women? This is what “Mateja Petje Relationships” Blog discusses in detail. What could be more important than our personal relationships with people. Now lets talk in terms specifically here just in regards to women. Women that grow up in traditional Western cultures do so with a particular belief system. Most women, right from early on, have been taught certain things.

 

They were taught for example to believe that one day they will meet Prince Charming. We know the role he plays. He will ride in on a white horse and save us. He will swoop down and take us away from all our suffering and make us happy and whole again. This theme is very pervasive in Western culture. This appears in our books and movies, permeating everything. 

 

 

Mateja Petje PTSD Diagnosis

 

Mateja Petje Relationships- Jerry McGuire

 

Think about movies such as Jerry McGuire You complete me or another great example is the movie “Pretty Woman“. In the past women didn’t have as many career choices that we have today, so often times they just had to be “happy” and put up with whatever life brought them. Do you personally think this is the way it should be?

 

 

Mateja Petje Relationships- Abuse

 

That meant women would suffer emotional, mental, financial, and even physical abuse. Luckily, with women’s rights and movement up the career ladder things have changed for women. Yet on an emotional level we still expect for a man to “make us happy”. This I believe is the core of our misconception.

Mateja Petje Relationships- Genders

 

You might be a stay at home mom or dad or a professional or business owner, the issue remains the same. We all want love, understanding, and a shoulder to cry on. We have all read enough self help books, or even spent years in therapy, yet we are not getting the results.  And this goes for both men and women alike. Nowadays it’s not uncommon anymore for a woman to have a demanding career, while her husband stays home or works in a less demanding job. What I’m saying here is true for both genders.

 

 

Mateja Petje Relationships- Communication

 

Men usually just don’t share their suffering or even abuse from a spouse due to the stigma attached to it. This is a very difficult situation in terms of healing and moving forward. The fact that men are usually very closed off generally speaking works against the situation many times.

 

I have had my own share of failed relationships that stemmed from my own traumatic and dysfunctional childhood. I started dating when I was 15 because I thought this was the only way for me to feel loved and understood. Yet, because I never healed sufficiently, I kept attracting abusive, angry, and narcissistic men. I wonder if this rings a bell for you.

Mateja Petje Relationships- Perception

 

Many of the clients I’ve worked with in my clinical practice have had similar struggles in relationships that have also led to clinical depression, anxiety and lack of self worth. There is a pressure within our society to find that one special man or woman who is your soulmate, otherwise you might be perceived that there is something wrong with you.

 

 

“Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus”

 

Probably like most of you, I’ve read a ton of self-help books, including Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus, and saw healers, coaches and therapists. I’ve learned a lot about myself and relationships which also led me to become a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

 

 

From Stress to Bliss

 

 

Mateja Petje Relationships- Imago Approach

 

In my professional practice I utilize something called the Imago Approach, a concept founded by Harville and Helen Hendrix.

 

According to this theory, we attract partners in our life that remind us about our primary caregivers, who are generally our parents, and that includes both for their positive and negative traits. To give you an example, a woman who grew up in a home where her mother was very submissive, might find herself attracting domineering and controlling men like her father.

 

You can find several book titles listed in my Blogs and on my website. You might find them helpful. Here is a link to that area of my website.

Mateja Petje Relationships- Your Subconscious

 

However, don’t despair because with some professional help this CAN be overcome. The best approach that worked for me and my clients is to understand how your subconscious and unconscious mind works. Many times, when we grew up in a dysfunctional home, we made certain beliefs about love, relationships, feelings, money and so on. We might not even remember these beliefs yet we keep living our lives based on those beliefs.

Mateja Petje Relationships- NLP and EMDR

 

If we want a different life, the key is to understand your mindset and your beliefs. Many times you’ll find you’re still living your life based on your parents or other authority figures beliefs. As children, we depended on others for our survival and our well being so we were not able to question those beliefs, consequently as ADULTS we can, and we MUST in order to change our lives for the better.

 

Over time I’ve found the techniques that work best in uncovering hidden beliefs include NLP, hypnosis, and EMDR.

 

 

Mateja Petje Relationships- Toxic Partner

 

Now, let’s talk some more about “How do you know if you are in an unhealthy relationship or even a toxic relationship.” further. I want you to ask yourself if any of these statements apply to you. By the way, an excellent book I often refer to is by Doreen Virtue. Some of these behaviors are more call for an improvement, while others could be too toxic and you might need to leave the relationship.

Relationship Deal Breakers

 

It’s important to know what your “Deal Breakers” are and what you can tolerate. However there are some that deserve our attention. In this list I’m just mentioning a few of the more common ones. These “Deal Breakers” can destroy even a happy relationship.

 

  • 1. Interrupting – the person who continuously interrupts you is not interested in what you have to say. Very often, the person who constantly interrupts is frequently anxious or hyperactive (and that might be due to use of stimulants, such as coffee). You need to tell them something like: “Excuse me, I am not done talking yet” and be assertive.

 

  • 2. Constant correcting – this is even worse than interrupting. You constantly walk on eggshells. You need to be assertive and tell them that it feels more  like he or she is acting as your teacher and not your partner.

 

  • 3. Clingy/needy behavior. Again you need to tell them you are busy with projects and set proper boundaries.

 

  • 4. Stalking is even worse and in some cases you might need to get a restraining order if situation doesn’t improve.

 

  • 5. Guilt-tripping or manipulating people. You feel resentful and angry. It’s important to say NO and stick to it.

Relationship Deal Breakers (cont.)

 

  • 6. Angerholics are addicted to being angry. This anger might be a result of upbringing, or also deep feelings of inferiority, disguised as anger. It’s important to get a professional help especially if the angry person continues to be in denial and doesn’t respond to common sense.

 

  • 7. Controlling behavior where typically controlling people act out immaturely or with anger when they feel that they are not in control.

 

  • 8. Addictions, including substance abuse reminds us it’s important to understand that any addiction needs to be treated by a professional. If you find yourself always pleading with the person suffering from addiction, most of the time it will not help as you continue enabling their behavior. It takes a lot of strength and courage to stay in a relationship with an addict. Until they get professional help, you are really in a relationship with a man or a woman who is hidden behind this cycle of addiction.

Relationship Deal Breakers (conclusion)

 

  • 9. Name calling is behavior that is verbally abusive. When it occurs you need to speak up because it’s not acceptable. Name calling can hurt even more sometimes than physical abuse can especially for someone who has a trusting, sensitive heart. For example a Highly Sensitive Person.

 

  • 10. Betrayal A betrayer breaks your heart and your trust by engaging in hurtful behaviors such as infidelity, flirting with others, lying to you or exercising extremely poor judgement. In my professional practice I worked with many couples who had suffered infidelity and in some cases, if the relationship had a solid basis, they overcame infidelity issues. However it can takes years. It is always important to love yourself enough and be honest with yourself and not trying to forgive people at every cost.

Dr. John Gottman “4 Horsemen of the Apocalypse”

 

I also wanted to share with you what Dr John Gottman calls “The 4 Horsemen of the Apocalypse”. These are 4 main behavior patterns that can destroy a relationship or a marriage (see Dr John Gottman “The 4 Horsemen of the Apocalypse” Blog)

 

Criticism: A complaint focuses on a specific behavior, while a criticism attacks the character of the person.

 

Defensiveness: Defensiveness is defined as self-protection in the form of righteous indignation or innocent victim hood in attempt to ward off a perceived attack. Many people become defensive when they are being criticized, but the problem is that being defensive never helps to solve the problem at hand. Defensiveness is really a way of blaming your partner.

 

Contempt: Statements that come from a relative position of superiority. Some examples of displays of contempt include when a person uses sarcasm, cynicism, name-calling, eye rolling, sneering, mockery, and hostile humor. Contempt is the greatest predictor of divorce and must be eliminated.

 

Stonewalling: Stonewalling occurs when the listener withdraws from the interaction. The antidote is to practice physiological self-soothing. The first step of physiological self-soothing is to stop the conflict discussion. If you keep going, you’ll find yourself exploding at your partner or imploding (stonewalling), neither of which will get you anywhere.

Mateja Petje Relationships- Good vs Bad

 

Now that we talked about dysfunctional and unhealthy relationship patterns, let’s talk for a minute about key characteristics of a HEALTHY relationship. I like to say, that in a healthy relationship, there is INTER-DEPENDENCE as opposed to co-dependence. Both partners are equal in every aspect and focus on their strengths and work together as a team.

Dr Gottman 7 Key Tips for a Healthy Relationship

 

“Yes Magazine” by John M. Gottman/Julie Gottman

 

1. Emotionally intelligent couples know each other’s world. They know each other’s goals, worries, and hopes.

 

2. Fondness and admiration are two of the most crucial elements in a long-lasting romance. I suggest to my couples to keep a jar filled with positive statements of each other and remember positive things when things get tough..

 

3. Seeking partner’s affection and support and give it freely. It doesn’t always have to be a great sex. Affection is even more important.

 

4. Treating each other with respect even when you disagree.

 

5. Solve your solvable problems and let go of things you cannot solve at the moment or learn to compromise.

 

6. Overcome gridlock and “honor” your partners dreams.

 

7. Create shared meaning so Marriage can have an intentional sense of shared purpose

Gratitude Goodwill Bliss

 

Daily Grateful Actions

 

Law of Gratitude

 

I call this Blog “Gratitude Goodwill Bliss”. My goal is to help us all go from “Stress to Bliss”. For many “Gratitude is the beginning of a blissful life.” Are you stressed out or are you feeling stuck? So start being grateful! Being gratitude is mostly at the forefront of people’s minds especially at this time of year with Thanksgiving for example. However, if we start our day with gratitude on a daily basis, even in the midst of our challenges, amazingly, it seems more often our lives will start to change in a more positive direction.

 

Law of Attraction

 

I must admit that I have not always felt this way. You see I used to be upset with events and people when things did not go as I had planned. Things started to change when I started to apply the teachings of the Law of Attraction and observing my thoughts and guiding them.  Sometimes we get angry with the world or God (as we may perceive it), but this is exactly the time when we need to apply the Law of Gratitude. There might be lessons to be learned that we might not be aware of. This is also a good time to apply the principal of “Gratitude Goodwill Bliss.”

“The Science of Being Rich”

 

In the past I did a program called “The Science of Being Rich” by Nancy Matthews. A co-founder of Women’s Prosperity Network in Plantation, Fl. The program is based on the teachings of Wallace D. Wattles. Prior to that, I had also studied Harv Eker’s the Secrets of the Millionaire Mindset. Whatever book or program you decide to follow, the key is to be disciplined and consistent. Years of conditioning will not change overnight. It requires patience, faith, and willingness to change your outdated belief patterns

Misery Loves Company

 

You may even face resistance from your loved ones and people that are close to you! As the saying goes “misery loves company.” But so does goodwill and gratitude. Whenever possible, surround yourself with people who have a positive outlook on life. Don’t waste time by complaining, blaming others and playing a victim.

 

In his book, Wallace states that “the more gratefully we fix our minds on the supreme good, when things come to us, the more good we will receive, and the more rapidly they will come.“ Grateful mind brings us closer to the Creator, God, Life Force, Higher Power or however you want to call it, from which the blessings come.

 

He further states that it is absolutely necessary to follow the Law of Gratitude in order to achieve the results we are seeking. Whether this is financial prosperity, health, relationships or buying a new home.

Control Your Emotions

 

When I work with clients, they often become angry, depressed, and anxious. As well as hopeless about their life, not knowing how to change things. The first thing I tell them is to start focusing and observing their language and their thoughts. Then to start changing their thoughts in order to change their emotions.

 

I believe that we are all the creators of our life. By choosing our thoughts and being grateful for everything in our life (yes even tough lessons and pain) we will create a life that we have always wanted. Wallace also adds that “without gratitude you cannot long keep from dissatisfied thoughts regarding things as they are. The moment you PERMIT your mind to dwell with dissatisfaction upon things as they are, you begin to lose ground.”  The grateful mind is constantly fixed upon the best.

 

Faith is born of Gratitude

 

In addition, FAITH is born of gratitude. We need to have faith in ourselves that we can overcome our “Conditioned Self”. Primarily this is based on fear, worry and negativity. This is the time to perform a daily action of thinking about what we are grateful for. It could be as simple as being grateful for a nice sunny day (and we are very lucky here in South Fl when the rest of the country has winter storms and cold).

 

I suggest to my clients to keep a daily gratitude and intention journal. Writing things down can make a huge difference. We want to live in our “Authentic Self” which is based on love, gratitude, joy and faith. Adopt the principals of “Gratitude Goodwill Bliss.” Make a difference where you live.

 

 

Don’t wait to get help when you feel stuck, stressed-out or depressed.

Client Testimonial

 

“After being in traditional therapy and making no progress, I explored the option of holistic therapy with Mateja. I loved that her approach was focused on me and how to move forward with my anxiety, negative thoughts & relationship perceptions, instead of focusing on the problems and where they stemmed from. With EFT, affirmations and tracking my moods, it created more self awareness around my emotions and where they were coming from. After 4-5 months, my anxiety levels is nearly nonexistent” Jessica in Boca Raton 11/16

In “Mateja Petje Thriving Life” you can read about “Victim Roles”. In this particular Blog we’re exploring how we can heal and overcome the “Victim Role“. This is a role that we may have adopted due to abuse or trauma in our childhood or any past life events. This is something that affects a significant number of people in our population.

Exercise Benefits

 

Being Physical

 

Why stay fit?

 

This particular blog I created discusses the mental health benefits of being physically active. I call it “Mental Health Exercise Benefits”. This blog discusses the importance of exercise for your mental health. It is frankly invaluable to you to be active and certainly it should not be underestimated. The Mental health exercise benefits of physical exercise are numerous!

 

I must admit, I’ve never been the typical “gym rat.” Luckily I grew up in the mountains of Slovenia where there are plenty of hiking opportunities. Frankly, I’ve always loved the outdoors. Even when I was in college, I still found time on weekends to go hiking with my friends. It was fun and it helped me to stay fit. At the same time I also enjoyed the company of my friends.

 

Mental Health Exercise Benefits- Dancing

 

In addition to hiking, dancing has also been my passion. Initially, that meant going to clubs. It wasn’t really until I turned 26 and broke up with my ex that I found solace in dancing. This was while healing a broken heart after he cheated with one of my childhood friends. My dysfunctional family, the hurt and pain related to my childhood and adolescent abuse, as well as a broken heart, led me to move to the US in October of 1997. This is where I joined my now ex-husband an American.

 

Importance of Exercising

 

I never truly understood the importance of exercise until years later. One of my boyfriends who was an athlete and a runner encouraged me to join the gym. At this point I didn’t enjoy going to clubs anymore. At that time as well I didn’t enjoy listening to hip-hop, dance, or techno. But I did take some belly dancing classes and I danced at drumming circles.

My healing journey took me to work with traditional psychotherapists, coaches, healers, and psychics. I was on and off medication for clinical depression and anxiety for the last 20 years. It had bad side effects such as weight gain, loss of libido, gastrointestinal issues, and even suicidal thoughts when life pressure and stress got to me. Remember the goal here is to get off all meds and utilize and healthy Holistic Lifestyle.

 

“Energy Healing and Spiritual Counseling“ Blog

 

This seems like it is a good opportunity to share a blog with you. This blog is about “Energy Healing and Spiritual Counseling” I wrote it not long ago.


Energy Healing/Spiritual Counseling


Research Alternative/Holistic approaches

 

Over time I kept researching alternative and holistic approaches to healing from abuse, trauma, chronic anxiety and depression. I learned about Buddhism and Hinduism and started meditating. This is something I have been doing for 20 years now. Still, I have not been able to find lasting solutions to stay off medication for any extended periods of time. Stress didn’t help me! You see I had worked at many toxic workplaces while building my private counseling and coaching practice.

 

The Functional Medicine Connection

 

Finally, a few years ago I learned about Functional Medicine. Now I began to understand the connection between my mental health and nutrition, as well as my gastrointestinal issues and lack of exercise due to working long hours. So I adopted a healthier, low carb diet. Quickly I lost over 15 lbs and I was able to get off medication and started taking B12 and CQ10 supplement.

 

I also stopped binge-watching Netflix and avoided drama and violence. Functional medicine, as opposed to traditional Western medicine, is more concerned with root causes, not symptom reduction, quick fixes, and taking an antidepressant or anti-anxiety medication.

 

The Functional Medicine Connection (cont.)

 

The key steps to health include:

 

 1. Proper nutrition (rich in healthy fats, veggies, protein, nuts, seeds, and fruit)

 

 2. Exercise (daily as much as possible)

 

 3. Adequate sleep (minimum 7-8 hrs.)

 

 4. Nurturing relationships and socializing

 

 5. Stress management and spiritual practices

James M Greenblatt, MD, Breakthrough Depression Solution

 

According to James M Greenblatt, MD, in his book Breakthrough Depression Solution, exercise is important and plays a key role in fighting depression. Several studies have proven the efficacy of exercise in significantly decreasing depression symptoms. For example, in a study conducted in 2013, researchers assigned 48, alcohol-dependent, inactive patients to a twelve-week, moderate exercise program.

 

 

The other group of participants was simply told to exercise. The participants reported far less drinking as compared to those who had been simply told to exercise. Similarly, in another study conducted by a Columbia University of Epidemiology survey, over 60% of participants who exercised were much less likely to suffer a major depression (p. 152).

 

According to Dr. Greenblatt :

 

Exercise fights Depression (p. 154)

 

  • Reverses Harmful Effects of Stress

 

  • Lifts Depression

 

  •  Improves Learning

 

  •  Builds Self-esteem and Improves Body Image

 

  •   Leaves You Feeling Euphoric or Joyful

 

Supplements and Physical Exercise

 

Dr Greenblatt also recommends taking supplements such as B12 and Carnitine, as many clients have very low energy and lack the motivation to exercise. The best type of exercise is probably Interval Training, because it helps to get the heart rate up quickly. However, any type of exercise can help including walking, yoga, Tai Chi and Qi Gong, strength training, biking, swimming or dancing.

 

It’s important that you set realistic goals and start slowly. For example, 15 minutes three times a week, gradually increasing your exercise time. Do what you love and don’t force yourself to go to the gym if it’s not your cup of tea.
