"Why not say the truth?  They didn’t do their best!  I got the shaft!" Amy Eden

Our special guest on this episode of GUC is Amy Eden, creator of the outstanding blog, Guess What Normal Is. GWNI caters specifically to the needs of people who grew up in a chaotic childhood environment caused by chronic inconsistency, stress, emotional or physical abandonment and abuse, whether due to addictions, political unrest, war, or a parent’s mental health issues.

Today Amy is with us to disscect the phrase, "They Did The Best That They Could," and explain why she believes that although the phrase may be a well meaning one, it really just doesn't work.
