All humans have emotional baggage, and yet, so many of us are unaware of what we're carrying until we hit a low point, experience a health crisis, or recognise that we're in a painful pattern with our relationships or how we feel about and treat ourselves.
Natalie Lue expands her popular blog Baggage Reclaim into podcast form with a weekly show about how to live and love with more self-esteem by unpacking, decluttering and tidying up our excess emotional baggage. It's time to reclaim yourself and experience more love, care trust and respect.
Ep. 278: The One Where We Say Goodbye
In the final episode of the podcast, Natalie is joined by her husband Em where they chat, answer listener questions, and say goodbye to this show which has been such a huge part of her life.

Ep. 276: New Year, New No, and Recognising the Dark Side of People Pleasing
In the final episode of 2022, Natalie shares a deleted chapter from her forthcoming book, The Joy of Saying No. She breaks down how, to escape the chains of the roles we play and trying to keep up with our and other people's often unrealistic expectations and projections, we might act out behind the scenes, go rogue on the version of ourselves that people have come to expect from us, lash out, or experience the toll of the chronic stress of our people-pleasing habit.

Thank you! I get this completely!
So glad you are doing your own thing and taking time to explore what you enjoy.
Every part of today’s podcast spoke to me ( teacher, currently off sick). I have all your books now and the first 2 have been inspirational so I am sure the new one that I bought today will be.
Good luck on your journey!
Excellent, outstanding, life changing
Natalie’s intelligent and insightful observations on life and relationships will help you notice patterns in your own behaviour to make real, positive changes. She offers practical steps, and real life examples, on how to improve self esteem and how to untangle negative thinking from the past. Natalie’s work has changed my life and I can honestly say her podcasts and blog posts have helped me more, and had more lasting affect, than any therapist I’ve ever been to. Her insight into the female psyche is second to none. I have saved a few episodes and listen to them again and again in difficult times. But every episode brings me a fresh insight into a new topic. My pocket guru and a wise, practical source of support and guidance to me.
This is a brilliant podcast. Every time I listen I’m tempted to take notes!
The podcast helped me heal from the damage caused by an unfulfilling and emotionally distressing relationship. It has helped me to self reflect and to accept that my feelings were and are valid.
I’m so glad to have discovered it 💜
