This is not the typical conversation about perfectionism, y'all, and I am warning you upfront, that you'll probably want to listen to it at least three or four times.

Today my guest is my dear friend Jessica Fish, who is also (and she would likely not own up to this...) a genius.

Her big truth was around the importance of community and external affirmation.

From there we talked about practicing radical encouragement in your relationships and how we cannot rely on self-regulation alone. We talked about the myth of "inconveniencing people," how we need to be honest about our bandwidth and over-giving tendencies, and all the offshoots of perfectionism like overachieving, having unreasonably high standards for ourselves, and the trap of "high performance."

She also explained how all of this keeps us in individual mindsets which keep us upholding dominant cultural narratives and norms.

She shared an exercise with us that she uses in her Divesting from Perfectionism workshops that literally changes people's lives on the spot, and she walked me through the fantasy of the "Ideal Self" that many of us have, and how it harms us.

We also explored what being in community with people who will hold you compassionately accountable and how we can all leverage the things we're really good at as our contribution to dismantling systems of oppression.

It's a juicy and meaty conversation.

Enjoy!

It's our first crack at the new format and I'm so excited to share it with you!

In this episode you get to be a fly on the wall during some Q+A at one of my Wild Soul Movement Weekend Workshops. At the end of each day, I open it up for questions about anything and everything. Because attendees have been doing healing and embodiment work all day, their questions are thoughtful, nuanced, and deep.

In this session I answer two different questions about navigating adult friendships: The first is around how to support a friend who is stuck and listening to them talk about the same things over and over again has become draining because you don't now how to help them. The other is about how to repair or move forward in a friendship after there's been a fracture, issue or confrontation.

I also got into healing the mother wound, how to cultivate play in your life- especially if you were a parentified child or feel like you have so many responsibilities now, there's no room for playfulness in adulthood. Lastly, I answered a really fun question about my favorite things to include in online dating profiles and the kinds of questions I like to ask potential dates.

Enjoy and let me know what you think!
