Today’s minisode comes from our listener survey from earlier this year. The listener wanted me to riff on the damage lying to yourself causes.

Oof, am I right? 

You’ll hear a theme in this episode about self-compassion. When we’re trying to move away from lying to ourselves, we need to always try and come from a place of self-kindness and compassion. 

In this minisode I’ll pose a very important question for you to answer, as well as suggest an exercise that you can do at home to dig deeper around this particular behavior. Get out a piece of paper, your journal, or your notes app and get to work! 

I also talk about self-abandonment and how it relates to this. 👀

This was such a juicy topic, thank you so much to the listener who wrote in and recommended it!
