*BEST OF THE PODCAST* You’re Imperfect, Life is Messy, Show Up Anyway with Krista O'Reilly-Davi-Digui
In this episode, Krista (founder of A Life in Progress) and I discuss the messiness of life and how to use self-compassion to get through it. Krista O'Reilly-Davi-Digui works as a writer & Joyful Living Educator. Her mission is to help messy humans like herself quiet the noise of perfectionism, comparison and fear and show up fully - with joy and on purpose - to their imperfect and beautiful lives, in every season. In this episode, we discuss: · How to better understand your sensitivity and see that there is beauty in it. · The importance of fully accepting ourselves, including the mess, pain, and discomfort that comes with growth. · Perfectionism and the different ways it can show up. · How our struggles are actually tied in with our strengths. · Using curiosity vs. judgment to see how nothing is inherently “bad.” · How our different traits live on a spectrum of healthy vs. unhealthy and the importance of being aware of that. · How being deeply rooted in self-awareness and self-compassion can help us stay grounded when we move along those spectrums. · The difference and relationship between self-compassion, self-esteem, and self-worth. · How self-compassion involves allowing all the emotions and all the messy parts of life. · And the power of both/and instead of either/or.
