What do 22 hours, political activism, and smashing the patriarchy have in common? They are all related to why I have so many issues with self-care and I am guessing you have similar issues as well. I went to get a massage yesterday at the massage therapy place that I have a membership with. I pay monthly for a massage and yet I very rarely actually go to get one! Wait...whaaat?
You heard me right- I do not have a problem paying for the service but I do have a problem taking the time to actually go and get a massage. For some reason the time feels like a luxury that my brain is telling me I do not deserve. Do you have similar internal messages that you are working through?
I know the root of these issues is me being raised in a very strict, very patriarchal, cult-like religion. From infancy, I was told that being a female meant I was less valuable than the men around me. I was subservient to them. They were the leaders and I was the follower because of my gender. These are deeply ingrained messages that are so challenging to overcome.
I am excited to dive into these topics and the social activism topics that are near and dear to my heart. 2023 is going to see this podcast spend time on tough issues and conversations with inspiring women & female-identifying people that live with radical audacity.
I would love to hear from you!
