65: Be Calm; Women in conflict and stress reducing techniques with Dr. Jill Weber
Subscribe to the Podcast!
Have you ever put a brave face on for the world so that you wouldn’t look weak? Whether you’re afraid of being judged, or you’re protecting someone else’s emotions, this can be toxic, for you and for the people around you.
Emotions can be precarious if they are not dealt with properly. This neglect manifests in everyone differently, but the outcome is usually destructive.
The sad truth is, most of us aren’t very good at understanding our emotions, let alone dealing with them, because of what we are taught at a young age.
What would the world look like if we didn’t put on a brave face? How empowering would it be if we felt secure enough to speak openly with one another?
Dr. Jill Weber, a Clinical Psychologist from Washington DC, who specializes in self-esteem, anxiety, and relationship issues, sits down with us to talk about the ways we are negatively impacted by neglecting our emotions, how we deal with conflict, what our emotions are telling us about ourselves, and how to deal with them.
