    This week we try something new with Viv interviewing Ro on her life story.

    #52 - Season of healing & a very overdue catchup 🫶

    #52 - Season of healing & a very overdue catchup 🫶

    Hi friends! First thing’s first, we want to apologize for the unannounced hiatus… one week turned into two weeks turned into a few months, and all of a sudden they’re now serving pumpkin spice lattes at Starbucks :’) Friends don’t ghost friends, and we should have done better!

    Even though we’ve been MIA, we have not stopped thinking about you 3 In fact, we’ve been working hard to gear up for Season 2 and we have a few special projects we can’t wait to share with you VERY soon!! hehe ~

    In this episode, we share these updates and our plans to wrap up season 1 in the upcoming weeks. We also talk about where life has taken us during these past few months, recent reflections, and bittersweet interactions we’ve had with our inner child. And of course in Voice Hugs fashion, what started as an overdue catch up ended with the most existential question of what is the meaning of life? Stay tuned til the end for our theory.. perhaps the answer has been right in front of us this entire time (;

    As always, thank you so much for being here ❤️ We are so grateful to be on this journey together with you and so so excited for what’s to come. LOVE YOU ALL SM!

    #50 - Jealousy: what it's really showing us & how to embrace it

    #50 - Jealousy: what it's really showing us & how to embrace it

    What is your jealousy trying to tell you? We’ve all experienced it firsthand. Whether in romantic, platonic, or familial relationships, jealousy can show up in various facets of our lives often bringing forth complex emotions and challenging our sense of self.

    In this episode, Ro and Viv explore the origins of their jealousy and how it may be more closely related to other emotions such as fear and sadness. After all, jealousy tends to arise as a response to a perceived or threatened loss or sense of inadequacy.

    The duo talk about the difference between feeling jealous versus acting jealous, and how embracing the emotion can help us understand ourselves a little more.

    A friendly reminder that you’re not “crazy” for feeling jealous 😇

Always a warm voice hug ♥️

Ro and Viv’s warmth and reflective discussions are absolutely Voice Hugs! Episodes are filled with introspection which offer moments to pause and consider my own growth as a person. I love to make myself a comforting drink, listen to a few episodes, and check in with myself. So grateful for you both and this podcast!

My favorite!

My favorite podcast to listen to! The talks are raw, real, and introspective which I love. I love casting the episodes on Spotify onto my TV and watching their videos in the background while I do my own thing. They’re like the sisters I never had and who have great life advice! Definitely recommend listening!

My heart is full

I loved Ro’s personality and when I found this podcast I was so excited to hear more from her but now I am extra happy because Viv is so wonderful as well and my heart was instantly full during the episode when Vivian brought up the Midnight Library. I thought this book was so deeply moving and to hear others speak so warmly about this story was the moment I was completely sold on this podcast (already was but even more so). Thank you for help bringing me peace in my hectic days. Sending voice hugs to you both for being so incredible. 😊
