Embracing Vulnerability and Accepting Support: You Are Not a Burden

This episode is all about embracing vulnerability, learning how to accept support and reversing the belief that you are a burden! 

In this episode, I share some personal stories that have shaped my journey of self-discovery and emotional healing, including a defining moment in my life that made me question trusting my gut feelings and establishing a belief that it was always better to say "I'm okay", rather than share any feelings that would prove otherwise.

Next, I share more about the transformative experience I had at our most recent retreat, Transcend, that was eye-opening and life-changing. Once you experience a safe space that allows for mutual vulnerability and support in expressing genuine emotions, it's really hard to go back to feeling emotionally unsafe.

The conversation then shifts to discuss the impact of codependent patterns and the struggle to seek support without feeling like a burden. It's time to break free from feeling as if we have to fix or rescue others and make room for some real talk about what it means to create meaningful and supportive relationships.

We then dive into some personal growth lessons, spill the beans on how to ask for support, and chat about setting boundaries with those who may not have enough empathy for what we're struggling with and how that can leave us feeling like we are imposing. 

As we wrap up, I encourage you to embrace your emotions, seek support, and flip the script on feeling like you need to minimize whatever you're struggling with . You aren't a burden; you deserve support! So, grab a comfy seat and embark on this transformative journey. You're not alone!
