    198. The psychology of ‘mommy issues’ and mother wounds

    Our mother wounds represent the unprocessed trauma and insecurities we pick up from the dynamic we each have with the women who raise us and shape us. In today's episode we break down the psychology of our mother wounds including their origin, their impact and their manifestation, from our body confidence to our competition with other women, our ability to trust and connect, our fear of disapproval and chronic people pleasing. 

    We also explore ways to heal this wound, both in collaboration with our mother and on our own. Listen now for more!

Even when I'm sick I can't slow down, and I don't think I'm alone. 

    We also discuss how I'm finding living alone, a little relationship update and how it feels to have finished my book! All that and more, listen now!

    189. 5 ways to stop comparing yourself to others

    Social comparison is the thief of joy - it will make us question everything that we have, doubt our own abilities, steal our sense of gratitude and peace.

    1. Don't unfollow, don't suppress, recognise and expand
    2. Keep your judgements realistic 
    3. Do things for YOU first
    4. Water your own grass 
    5. Comparison as a motivator 

    Listen now to learn how you can control your urge to compare yourself to others!
