S2E3: FEELING [OR NOT FEELING] FEELS
If we learned that there is shame in crying and expressing emotions, then we can unlearn it, and become "more than our history; more than our upbringing." These are hard conversations that we have to have with ourselves, and we have to wrestle with our discomfort and shame. In this episode, you can join me while I have this internal discussion about:
Crying in the shower
Feeling [or not feeling] your feels
Going off the grid
A new book I'm reading on shame
An anonymous letter from a church friend
Thanks for being here. Don't forget about the bonus part after the outro song.
S2E2: REDEFINING PRODUCTIVITY
Productivity, performing, and projects... Oh, my! I let my brain wander a bit as I think back on the days of old and ask myself WHY? Why was I kept busy? Why was I taught not to question anything? Why is our value tied to our productivity and output? And why the heck was I only complimented for putting on heels and makeup?!
She makes hard topics easy to talk about and listen to
So genuine. So real. So authentic. Things that need to be talked about from voices that need to be heard. A must listen (and subscribe) for curious and open minds. 💞
Genuine. Honest. Much needed.
It’s so refreshing to hear someone sit down and have a real conversation with someone. To hear other people talk openly about very similar struggles and experiences I have had is encouraging. This podcast asks the hard questions, talks about the elephant in the room, and is a great reminder that you are not alone. Thank you, Steph!
