NotBasicBlonde Podcast

Nov 9, 2021

In this episode, my guest Christine Hassler and I are discussing so many important topics.

Talking points:

  • Please tell us more about Expectation Hangover?
  • How can we avoid feeling regret over lost chances?
  • How can a person feeling broken and helpless improve their circumstances?
  • If we are under pressure, is it a sign that we are undergoing spiritual awakening; what’s spiritual awakening actually feels like?
  • People think that surrendering to our circumstances is an act of accepting defeat; what do you have to say about it?
  • Our society isn’t perfect; many wrongs are happening all the time. How do we decide when to speak up and when to let go?  
  • High-performance coaches vilify taking a break or resting for a bit. What’s your opinion on this?
  • How can we stop emotional suppression?
  • How can we stop others from damaging our self-worth?
  • How can we break the barriers that we’ve built around our hearts because of bad experiences?
