Self-Care for Extremely Busy Women

Apr 9, 2021

What you may not know about finding support might be seriously hurting you. Whether it’s a trusted friend, or a roomful of strangers, getting out of your bubble of discomfort is essential. You can do this!

Among other things, we talked about:

  • The nuance about asking for support … so you get it
  • Suzanne reflects on how her ego kept her from getting help after her daughter’s death
  • How online resources can bring in some unexpectedly fun support
  • What happens after you wallow in your pain? What’s next?

Our question fits right in here, because Luna asks, ‘How do I start a tribe?’

We riff on some really good, specific possibilities!

Hope you enjoy!
