“While we are feeling all of these feelings of despair, we are then being told by the bigger conversation out there ‘you are an ugly old hag and you’re never going to amount to anything’. And I just think that’s a type of conversation I would love to hear more over here, not in a ‘woo-woo’ hippy kind of way that you are enough, just that you fucking are enough, alright?” (13:22)

“Really, when you say you are doing absolutely everything that you need to do, I mean are you really? Chances are you are not.” (29:10)

“I just needed to be uncomfortable, I needed some change, I needed to do something different. Because what I was doing wasn’t working.” (37:50)

“Prioritizing time for just actual self-care is one of the things that most women don’t do.” (56:58)

“Just being a little bit kinder to the narrative that is going on in your head can actually even in your more symptomatic days where you just hate the world can actually still make those days better than they would be if you were thinking in a different manner.” (59:05)

  1. Any chance you can create PDF transcripts of your podcasts? Bulletproof does this. I’m a reader, not a listener. I would never listen to a podcast but love a good article. I find your topics super interesting but know I’ll never listen to them. Still interested in content.
