S2E5 OWNING OUR STRUGGLES + FINDING HAPPINESS - BONUS PRIDE EPISODE
In 2015, Only Human was born out of a rock bottom experience where founder Bree Pear created the foundation for a movement of connection, inspiration, and betterment. In this episode, Steph and Bree get right into owning our struggles, finding happiness and inspiring others to do the same.
S2E4: RELIGION + ANXIETY
A little bit of real time processing in this episode. I get straight to the point talking about my social anxiety, religion and some childhood memories of my fear of being left behind.

S2E3: FEELING [OR NOT FEELING] FEELS
If we learned that there is shame in crying and expressing emotions, then we can unlearn it, and become "more than our history; more than our upbringing." These are hard conversations that we have to have with ourselves, and we have to wrestle with our discomfort and shame. In this episode, you can join me while I have this internal discussion about:
Crying in the shower
Feeling [or not feeling] your feels
Going off the grid
A new book I'm reading on shame
An anonymous letter from a church friend
Thanks for being here. Don't forget about the bonus part after the outro song.
S2E2: REDEFINING PRODUCTIVITY
Productivity, performing, and projects... Oh, my! I let my brain wander a bit as I think back on the days of old and ask myself WHY? Why was I kept busy? Why was I taught not to question anything? Why is our value tied to our productivity and output? And why the heck was I only complimented for putting on heels and makeup?!
S2E1: SAVING YOURSELF
Season 2... THE SOLO SEASON is here. In the middle of a global pandemic I figured it was time to start talking to myself.
How do we save ourselves? How do we save others? Can we save others? Trauma and indoctrination created a need to help everyone around me, foregoing personal healing and boundaries. Join me as I take a hard look at what it means to save yourself, and how we can’t live to save others.
This is a difficult topic that brushes against triggers for a lot of people, myself included. Please be mindful of your reaction while listening, and give yourself a damn break if it feels too much.

S1E6 PT.3 BEING A 3RD + EXPECTATIONS + BEING AN ENIGMA
“STEPH, YOU’RE SUCH AN INTERESTING ENIGMA”
ENIGMA - a person or thing that is mysterious, puzzling, or difficult to understand.
Hey friends! Here is the 3rd episode from my conversation with Hillary. If you missed the first two take a listen here:
Episode 1: Tinder Meetups + The Dinosaur Ride + Overthinking Makeouts
Episode 2. Monogomish + Dating after Marriage + Cold Sores
I have really been struggling putting this specific episode out into the world (meaning not just on my Patreon). It is pretty personal and I constantly feel the need to explain myself... Which seems impossible! If someone doesn't know my full story, the environment I was raised in, my first sexual experiences, or my firsts with being intimate and trusting others and how that was used against me, it seems like it just won't click for some people. I am learning that I don’t owe anyone an explanation, but I will offer a little glimpse into my brain meat in this post because it’s hard to get it all out there on the podcast. Things from our past shape us, but I believe that talking about it can help us sift through the complications and help us become more self aware individuals. So, here I am. Please read my full post HERE. Where I talk more about topics like: PERFORMING, FEELING SAFE, BEING A PIECE OF SOMEONES STORY VS. WHOLE STORY and answer the questions WHAT ARE YOU SO AFRAID OF?
