    123 Yumay Chang - The Power To Manifest: Triumph from Childhood Abuse

    In Yumay's words: I was severely abused by sadistic parents - overt dad and covert mom, and emigrated to the US at age 20 with nothing and no one. I learned how to heal myself and build a life:1. MS in CS from Stanford at age 21. Paid for school by being a CS TA despite English being my second language. 2. Financially free in my early 30s. 3. Ran/Running global sales teams for Microsoft and Google.4. Built and sold a striving race business with over 20k racers.5. I was a pretty good athlete myself at one point in my life :) -  adventure races, 50 mile runs, podium placing bike racer across MTB, cyclocross, road race, and track race.6. What I am most proud of is that I have great relationships with my siblings, my friends, my husband and my cat. Not easy since I had to learn how to have good relationships from scratch!
    7. Currently also hosting Life Is Love School to help survivors understand they have the power to heal themselves.
    For Yumay the following topics are of biggest importance:1. Not understanding the impact their childhood has on their life today, especially when it comes to intimate relationships. 2. Not realizing that they can heal themselves, but insisting that justice requires their abusers to apologize and fix what they’ve broken. 
    3. Not making progress because they don’t know how to go about healing themselves.

Relatable!!

Episode 79.79 When Self-Care Does Not Prevent Burnout hit home for me me. I burned out. four times over the course of my medical career.

A new paradigm is presented: self-preservation, self-care, self-love, and self-purpose. All four, according to research and personal experience are essential to protecting us from burnout.
