Manage episode 299777019 series 2790805
Today, we are sharing stories and unpacking one of the most common beliefs women share: the belief that we are not good enough.
And very often, controlling our bodies and beauty are the tools offered to us in order to access our self-worth and confidence, always selling us with the promise that we will feel good enough when we get to the “right body” size and beauty. Although I consider myself a confident woman today, it hasn’t always been this way.
Diet culture conditioning and the pursuit of the thin ideal kept me from accessing what was a fact: my innate worth. I was chasing externally what was already present internally. Our guest expert today Vanessa Preston will help navigate our way back to confidence and feeling good enough. Vanessa will help us navigate the path back to feeling good enough.
