I am bringing you a very impromptu episode today about how sometimes feeling better is not the same as healing. I’m currently in the middle of a healing and self-discovery journey, and the episode that was originally planned for this week just didn’t feel right. So instead, today you’ll meet Kristen Rogers. She is a dear friend whom I met through the mastermind that we both participate in. The morning that we recorded this episode, we had been messaging back and forth about our healing journeys. On the fly, I asked her if she’d hop on a call and record an episode on the topic with me… And she agreed! I adore and admire her so deeply and know you’re in for a treat as she shares so much wisdom, experience, and encouragement.
In this episode about how feeling better is not the same as healing, we cover:
- The difference between feeling emotions vs. managing emotions
- How sometimes we focus on helping others so that we don’t have to focus on helping ourselves
- Addressing the root problem instead of just putting a bandaid on it
- Making yourself sit and feel each emotion, even when it’s an emotion you can’t name
- Ideas and tips on how to make time to be still and put in the work to heal
- A different perspective on what self love means
