    How Hustle & Hookup Culture Destroyed My Self Worth

    How Hustle & Hookup Culture Destroyed My Self Worth

    It’s here! “Deserts to Mountaintops: Choosing Our Healing Through Radical Self Acceptance” is officially available wherever books are sold. In this episode, Lily discusses the anthology writing process and a few core themes of her chapter, “I Am Your Friend Too”. 
    A note from Lily: My chapter is vulnerable. I’m talking really raw & really, really real. And honestly, it’s terrifying. Some of you are new faces, some have been here for a while. And while I’ve grown up online, this is probably one of the most grown-up things I’ve done online. It’s my story of rejection and friendship and hookup culture and burnout and regaining the strength to understand that I don’t have to be “independent”. I’m allowed to be needy, I’m allowed to need my people. We weren’t supposed to do life alone. It’s so much bigger than a book - it’s a community. Get ready, this book might just change your life. Love, Lil

CURROS ARE YUMMY ,

LOVE LOVE LOVE

last year, i was trying to figure out ways on how i can try to find motivation to better myself through my day to day life. i started trying to listen to podcasts as i felt inspired from others talking about their experiences. finding 80/20 has to have been the best thing that has happened to me for my wellness journey, lily is nothing but a bright light that has truly helped me look into myself and figure out how to make adjustments in my life that will only improve my mentality and overall wellbeing. i am a weekly listener who always looks forward to upcoming episodes. i’m currently obsessed with the “that girl, this woman” series that will be playing out!! can’t wait to see what’s in store. lily’s the absolute best. 🤍🤍🤍

A little misleading

Not to say that this isn’t a good podcast or that there isn’t good nuggets of advice in it, however, I think it’s misleading and false advertising to not mention that this has a lot of religious talk in it. If it’s for the Christian girlies then say that, and I love that for them, however, it seems like it’s something that is purposefully left out and not everybody wants to hear that, and whether it’s a conversion tactic, or an assumption that everybody has the same belief system, it was a little icky. I was really enjoying subject matter, but was quickly turned off and blindsided by the religion pushing. AGIAN for Christian women this is probably a really great one to listen to, but it needs to be advertised that it is that.
