    127. Shadow Self

    127. Shadow Self

    How much of our inner selves to do we feel comfortable sharing with others? How do we open ourselves up to one another and reveal our shadow selves, or parts of ourself that feels less safe? Is it our responsibility to share those things, or does that fall on the other person to ask the right questions and get us to open up?
    Adam and Marisol discuss the parts of themselves that they share openly with others and what their hang-ups are around the other parts of who they truly are. Expectations of care, over-sharing, disclosure, and curating personalities for their audience, all play into how we show up, how we ask to be loved, and how we are seen by others.
    How much do you think someone knowing you, is dependent on them, or on you?

Real (helpful) talk

These two lovebirds have a lot of wisdom and generously share the details of their journey with a delightful blend of vulnerability, honesty and spunk. As a married partner, there is much to glean from these well curated topics. I have found that listening to their podcasts with my sweetheart helps to open the door to difficult conversations. These two really have a knack for weaving heavy topics into a light hearted, and fun dialogue. Keep it up, please!

Gratitude

I am so thankful for this podcast! Marisol and Adam are not afraid to talk about the hard things and to examine the deep questions as it relates to marriage, kids, and not losing who we are/want to be. As a mom with grown kids and a still growing kid, I am in a different stage in my parenting, but Marisol and Adam still teach me so much about the journey of being a mom/dad. I feel seen when I listen to them and their discussions have brought some real aha’s for me as it relates to my own marriage/parenting/personhood. I highly recommend this fantastic podcast!!

SOOOOO Good!!!!

I started at episode 1 yesterday morning and I am already at 7 within 24 hours! I absolutely LOVE it! You all are amazing! I resonated deeply with episode 1 being about love and sharing love…it is one one my core values in life and business. I love that you are sharing your lives, your conversations, discussing hard topics and showing up in real, vulnerable ways. Your love, support, adoration and respect for each other shines through and it is so refreshing! Thank you! <3
