I'm always excited to share guests with you, but this week, I finally got my dear friend Staci Jordan Shelton on the show. It took me over a year...maybe longer. And you will see, it was worth the wait!

Staci's big truth was that she doesn't let people gaslight themselves. From there we discussed what gaslighting actually is and how it functions since it's a term that gets thrown around a lot.

We talked about the importance of context, the difference between shame and accountability and why conflict isn't bad; and we got into why cancel culture isn't the way, but ignoring patterns of behavior doesn't help people get free either.

We also touched on implementation and how sustained change can only happen over time, the lies that hold people hostage, the importance of having hobbies and something I've been thinking about so much in the last year - what it's like to be the strong friend and how to navigate getting the support you need, too, even if people don't think you need it!

Enjoy, share, and let us know what you think!
