1. Let Good Things In Show [3:09]
Let the good things in show is a podcast and you can find it anywhere. You listen to podcasts and go ahead and subscribe to that. It’s all about second chances.
And the fact that our past doesn’t have to define our future. And the show will give you hope and inspire those with a difficult past to see that they are worth it and can have the success that they want in life, regardless of what society is telling them. The show focuses on conversations with those who have overcome adversity, such as incarceration, addiction, and mental illness.
The conversations on the show are raw and real. Nothing is off the table. I love it. And to hear the voices of those who at one point felt like they didn’t have a voice, which is also so key. And I love that Amanda, these stories are inspiring and authentic. There’s also a lot of laughs and deep heartfelt discussions. Together we can change the world.
“If I want to be authentic, because you hear that word online a lot, and here I am telling people to be authentic, but yet I’m hiding who I really am and what I actually want to do in this world. …
telling my story to inspire other people to not live in shame for as long as I did.Amanda Acker
[00:09:27] Amanda Acker: Exactly. Like I was just talking about this the other day. I was looking at my dream. As a child was to be a school teacher. But for some reason, when I went to college, it’s not what I chose to major. And now I did choose that after the fact, but my first initial experience was criminal justice and I wanted to be a probation officer and I wanted to help people.
[00:09:48] And I didn’t know why back then. And I think that if. Yeah. If I would’ve had me now to tell me back, then just stay on this path and to listen to myself and to not allow [00:10:00] others to influence me so much that my life would have been drastically different than it is.
[00:10:06] Raven Scott: Absolutely. That’s the hardest part. I think for a lot of us who are highly sensitive, who are empaths or even just kind of good kind of people that get suckered into the vortex of narcissists is we just get kind of blown off.
[00:11:20] Amanda Acker: Yeah. I mean, there’s a lot in my past, , people who influenced me in a negative way, but before I go through that, I will say that these were all my choices. So even though I was influenced. I have the choice to say no, and I chose not to. Right. So I
[00:11:39] Raven Scott: a fork in the road. Choose to go left or right.
[00:11:41] Amanda Acker: Yeah. And I always went left.
as a young child, like my mother, , me and her are very close now, so everything’s good there, but. She kept me in this bubble. Like if I could make friends, like they were weird, or if, you know, someone invited me to spend [00:12:00] the night, it would be no. Or if I wanted friends to come over, like I was, I always felt like having friends was almost wrong.
[00:12:07] and she made me feel like that, that innate guilt for choosing to go out and be with my friends rather than stay home and spend time with her. So I think that kind of instilled something in my brain as a child and moving forward in life, I tended to attract friendships and men and all kinds of different things.
2.The mother’s compassion shapes the way we accept love. [12:31]
the Dalai Lama talks about the mother has the biggest, most important role in showing their child compassion.
And however, the mother loves. And that’s why I’m so keen on being careful how I love my children and what I say, like not to control them is because I see myself as trying to model. Who I would want them to marry and it better be how I act, because it’s like, , if you have a distant mother, you somehow get attracted to a partner who’s distant with you emotionally, if you have, like you said, like a narcissistic mother, you always are, you’re, you’re attracted to a narcissistic or super selfish partner.
[00:14:43] But he (father) wasn’t an emotionally available, man. He still isn’t. , for me, at least, I don’t know what it’s like for his new wife and new daughter, but you know, for me, I didn’t feel a connection there. So I saw my mom struggle with. You know, on top of her, the way she [00:15:00] was. And I’m also seeing her being treated, , with this emotional disregard, you know, so I thought that was normal.

3. Where would you be if you chose a different path? [20:58]
I would have, , kept my head down in a book and studied and graduated college at the top of my class and led a career.
4. People pleaser loose when they take the easy road. [23:15]
[00:22:31] , but you know, yeah, maybe that would have been where I’d be at. Maybe I’d be, you know, traveling the world and speaking and helping, you know, people who. We’re going through some, like the hardest times of their lives, like getting convicted of a crime or even being arrested in general is by far the I mean, I’ve been through some crap and that was the scariest thing I’ve ever been through.
[00:22:54] , getting your freedom taken from you. And being who I was [00:23:00] back then, you know, I never been in trouble before I got, I didn’t even get detention, not once in my entire life.
[00:23:05] Raven Scott: You were a good girl, people pleaser, make sure everyone was taken care of.
[00:23:09] Amanda Acker: That’s what I was trying to do in that moment too. I just wanted to keep everyone else happy and we needed money and drugs, were at play too.
[00:23:15] So I was seduced by this chaotic lifestyle that I wound up in. And I remember thinking I’m being arrested in that moment. Like how did I end up here? How did I get here and how am I going to get myself out of this?
So I was seduced by this chaotic lifestyle that I wound up in. And I remember thinking I’m being arrested in that moment. Like how did I end up here?
And I was looking for a week when I got arrested. I remember, okay. Like I have no money. I smell. So everyone’s gonna think I’m a homeless person, which I was at that point, you know? And it was horrifying.Amanda Acker
5. Your life experience prepares you for your purpose. [26:01]
You wouldn’t have the true life experience and empathy to relate to people who you are passionate about helping now, you would have not gone to jail.
