Part 2 of an INCREDIBLE conversation with my dear friend Kyira Wackett.
(come listen to part 1 in Ep. 43)

Today we dive even deeper into an understanding of Shame, Comparison, Judgement and toxic bad vs. good thinking.


In this episode:

  • What is shame and where does it come from
  • How to process shame so it’s no longer controlling us
  • Personal shame vs. situational shame
  • Why do we compare and judge so much even when it hurts us
  • How to break the comparison cycle
  • Good vs. bad and black vs. white thinking – why we do it and how we can get out of this toxic thinking
  • More!
