    S14E10: Learning How to Love Ourselves with Elizabeth Acevedo

    S14E10: Learning How to Love Ourselves with Elizabeth Acevedo

    Who among us hasn’t heard the common refrain, you just have to love yourself? And, sure, while we may agree in theory, how easy is that to do in a world that tells you to do the exact opposite? According to Elizabeth Acevedo, The New York Times best-selling author of Poet X, Black women suffer the most from chasing the potential of who we are instead of acknowledging that we are enough right now…but it doesn’t have to be that way. Elizabeth joins Terri and Dr. Dom for an inspiring and relatable conversation about how her journey as a renowned poet, author, and now screenwriter led her to the belief that you always have to be in a position to quench your own thirst. She shares gems on how nurturing her connections with her intuition and her ancestors led her to a fulfilling life in full bloom. If you need a little guidance on how to water your own garden, you’ll want to tune in!

Fatphobia

I really enjoyed the fatphobia podcast! I have gained weight since being on psychiatric meds, getting older, and a host of other stressors. Needless to say, I’ve been incredibly hard on myself and the internalized fatphobia has been running rampant! It was relieving to know that I am an average size for an American woman! Please link the study so I can cite it! I keep replaying the quote/statistic to get it in my mind. THANK YOU so much for this podcast! 🙏🏽

Crackers_in_Soup ,

Such an honor!!

It was truly an honor to be able to speak about Sisterhood with two of my sisters! Thank you one million times Terri and Dom for recapping how we got together and why sisterhood is such a foundation of what we need to prosper.
