    Identity, Revolution, and Division in the World Today, How to Recognize True Human Connection, Rebuild Your Self-Worth and Stop Being a People Pleaser with Najwa Zebian

    This episode is brought to you by Fatty 15, Comrad Socks, and Legion Athletics.
    Join me on as I sit down with Najwa Zebian, a four-time best-selling author and Lebanese-Canadian activist, to explore the intricate dynamics of cultural identity, empathy, and self-preservation. Najwa shares her compelling journey of navigating life between two cultures and the transformative power our words hold over our lives. Together, we uncover the challenges of maintaining one's personal story amidst societal pressures and discuss the importance of compassionate communication and the pitfalls of black-and-white thinking. Najwa's insights shed light on understanding differing perspectives and fostering open dialogue to achieve a fulfilling and meaningul life.
    Throughout our conversation, we also touch on the importance of self-awareness and empathy in reducing judgment and criticism of others. By exploring how understanding one's values and imperfections fosters compassion, we highlight the problem of defensiveness and the unwillingness to engage in open conversations. Nezha shares personal anecdotes, such as her experience of removing the hijab and facing backlash, illustrating the challenges and importance of staying true to oneself while navigating societal pressures. We emphasize the value of dialogue and understanding differing perspectives for unity and growth.
    Finally, we explore the profound journey of personal growth, healing, and living authentically. Nezha and I discuss the significance of embracing pain and seeking clarity, rather than masking issues with superficial solutions. By reflecting on past traumas and the transformative power of self-love and inner reflection, we underscore the necessity of setting boundaries and surrounding oneself with supportive relationships. Listen in as we share powerful stories and metaphors that highlight the urgency of embracing one's authentic truth and the liberating process of transforming knowing into doing.
