Episode 15: Feeling Supported When Family Doesn’t Support You

Feeling supported when family doesn't support you

Sometimes we wish our family and friends showed their support in a more obvious way. Sometimes we wish we would feel supported at all. Today, we are talking about feeling supported when family doesn’t support you. 


In this episode, we are looking at what to do when the support you are looking for isn’t there. We’re covering two reasons you might not feel supported, things to consider if your family doesn’t know how to support you, and how to deal with someone who gives negative feedback. Remember, just because your family and friends are showing support in the way you prefer doesn’t mean they don’t support you!


If you’re looking for a community where you DO feel supported, check out the Real Talk membership! Inside you’ll have access to monthly writing courses, weekly group calls with live edits, and personalized feedback and support!

More about The Prologue: helping authors craft a stronger story

Welcome to The Prologue, with author coach, Arielle Hadfield.


You’ve got an idea for a story. Now it’s time to get it on paper. The writing world can be a strange and scary place, but you don’t have to face it alone.


In this podcast, Arielle guides authors through all the steps of writing a book.

This includes how to take a simple idea and transform it into an entire story with complete characters and a compelling plot, editing strategies, and mindfulness skills to help break through writer’s block, handle rejection, and find courage to step outside your comfort zone to get your story out of your head and into stores.


Arielle Hadfield began as an author. Soon she was able to combine her writing and editing skills with her background in mental health and life coaching to become the first of its kind author coach!


Tune in every Tuesday to learn how to craft a stronger story. With examples from books, movies, and music, and a fun, encouraging, and kind environment, Arielle will help you reach your goals, no matter how far-fetched they feel today.
