Podcast Episode 12 The Power of Self-Forgiveness
Feb 26, 2020
Self-loathing is its own special kind of trauma. In this episode, I recall a story of finding self-forgiveness in the most unlikely of places, with my daughter in the epi-center of a huge parent fail!
Join us in this episode as Andrea and I unpack what happens and how, by not abandoning ourselves, we create access points for healing and self-forgiveness.
"Self forgiveness can create a portal to retrieve pieces of ourselves." - Monica Rodgers
We traumatize ourselves when we self-loathe
Our children offer us opportunities to be human and to own our mess.
What happens when we dare to STAY with our human mess?
Healing happens when we allow our emotions to move through us.
When we choose to stop escaping our humanity, we are able to see how precious we are in our intentions.
When we don’t minimize our true feelings or anyone else’s feelings - it all gets to belong.
"I was sitting in the hot snotty mess of my humanity." - Monica Rodgers
"It’s an inside job before we can take it to the outside. It’s the internal reckoning" - Andrea Willets
