It takes emotional maturity to show up honestly in your life and expose what you really think, feel, and desire–especially when those thoughts and feelings diverge from the norms of your larger social group. The fear of not belonging can keep us from acknowledging who we really are.

In this NEW PODCAST episode, Dr. Finlayson-Fife joins Sarah Carter of the Heart and Soul podcast to discuss the complexity of making room for your own thoughts and desires when you also belong to a family or larger group, and how unyielding expectations can interfere with self-acceptance, body acceptance, and honest relationships with others. 

Listen to the full episode to learn more about:

  • The importance of acknowledging our honest thoughts and desires

  • Perfectionism

  • Body Image 

  • Developing compassion towards our limitations and the limitations of others

  • Resentment
