In today's episode of the Mind Set Game Podcast, I sat down with Dr Amber Baker.

Are you your best friend? Psychologist #inspiration Interactions don't constitute therapeutic relationship/not advice or treatment.

"I moved over 20 times by the time I was thirteen-years-old. I learned how to connect with people in each unique area I lived, from Long Beach, California to the English countryside. I adapted by tuning into the newest peers, teachers, and neighbors and the culture around me. I became a chameleon and reflected what I thought people would like to see. However, this began to take a toll. I didn't feel good enough to just be me. I constantly reached for what seemed like the best mask for the time and place instead of showing my real self. Over time I have discovered more about who I really am underneath it all and have practiced sharing my real self with the world. I am on this journey right there with you, every day working on strengthening my relationship with myself and not only accepting my self, my quirks, flaws, strengths, struggles and often botched attempts at "dad jokes," but also owning who I am a little more each day. I have the ultimate privilege of witnessing and, at times, assisting others as they learn to appreciate, accept and own who they are. We can see and connect to the world around us and ourselves so much better without a mask. I also understand how vulnerable and naked we can feel without it. That is why I am determined to provide inspiration and information to support others in knowing, accepting and strengthening their relationship with their self. Go, Friend, Your Self!"
