Becoming Me

EPISODE 32

A lack of self-compassion can often come from unrealistic expectations or comparison with others who have very different gifts than we do.

In this 1 year anniversary episode of the Becoming Me Podcast, I talk about why learning to understand your unique personal design can help you make your interior journey with greater grace and ease even when circumstances are challenging.

REFLECTION PROMPT
Listen.
- As you listened to this episode, was there any point that struck you or resonated deeply with you?
- Was there something that jumped out at you?

Ponder.
- Can you think of an instance where you feel like you're running uphill or struggling really hard to get something done ?
- Ponder this: is it possible that you are struggling so much because how you are approaching your work, or the environment that you're in goes against your unique personal design, and you don't realize that.

Act.
- Make a commitment to yourself to learn more about your unique design so that you can love yourself better, and accompany yourself better in your interior journey.
- Write a letter to yourself if you're ready to make this commitment.
- Tell yourself that you do want to get to know yourself better.
- Maybe ask a good friend or a significant other, whom you think would be a good companion on this journey, to join you in a process of self-discovery.

For full details of this reflection prompt, please see transcript.
