I am so excited about this episode. This week’s guest, Dr. Sophie Brock, says that to connect with the authenticity of who we are we first have to deconstruct who the world expects us to be. Isn’t that so powerful?
She literally has a PhD in motherhood. She is a motherhood studies sociologist.
This episode is such a brilliant follow-on to last week’s episode with Dr. Rick Hanson. If you haven’t listened to that one please do after you listen to Sophie’s.
I feel like this episode is so powerful. It does something really important, which is to put your individual experience of being a mother and all the challenges that come with that into the wider societal context. Essentially revealing what it means to be a mother in the world today.
If you have ever felt that guilt on you, this episode is going to help you so much. It’s going to help you feel freer, lighter and more self-compassion for your incredible role as a mother.
Sophie explains that so much of the tension in motherhood actually comes from society and what it expects from us.
IN THIS EPISODE YOU’LL LEARN ABOUT:
What it means to be a mother in this world
Where the tension and guilt of motherhood come from
Why you feel so guilty all the time
How we can free ourselves from that guilt
