Successfully Losing Control

What happens when Amy walks into the studio prepared for one show and another one presents itself unexpectedly in the form of past-guests Lisa and JD? It makes her Fireside Chat quote about losing control in order to succeed feel like Divine Intervention. Amy, Lisa, and JD talk about image and identity as it relates to recovery and the armor you hide behind to avoid feeling, and the “impression management” that can linger long into the recovery journey. They also touch upon emotional sobriety and the choice of whether to live in the problem or the solution. Amy successfully allows herself to lose control resulting in a conversation full of heart; and her Grandma shows up from beyond the grave, which makes it a quintessential Eternally Amy episode.
