pulling back the curtain on perfection: what you don't see on social media, creating problems that don't exist, and feeling guilty for having a bad day when good things are happening


hey, rediscover fam. 
this month's episode is a little different from our more recent ones. in our own ways, we've both been feeling a little vulnerable, a little refelctive, a little...low. so, in the spirit of staying true to our pillar of authenticity, we're pulling back the curtain and sharing some of the more challenging mindsets we've been trying to shift recently, and the internal battles that we've each struggled to overcome.
this episode might have a less vibrant feel than usual, and our tone might be more subdued, but this conversation is one of the most real, raw, and honest ones we've ever had on the show. we'll discuss:
  • the self-care industry and the innumerable marketing schemes that try to sell us a "better" life than the one we're living now
  • how being a chronic "fixer" can cause us to create problems where there were none
  • the pressures and expectations of having a social media presence, and how living life online can blur boundaries and breed unrealistic expectations
  • societal expectations and how major life milestones can cause a tidal wave of unsolicited opinions
  • why we feel guilty for having bad days when we're supposed to be happy 
  • & more!

if you're in the midst of a challenging season, a significant life change, or you're just working on abandoning old minsets for new and more supportive ones, we hope this episode provides a little wisdom, a bit of solidarity, and a place to begin. we love you all, thanks for listening!
