On today’s episode, Heather Archer and I talk about family dynamics, perfectionism contorting, and detoxing from grind culture. We deconstruct the images of perfection we fit ourselves into and the unraveling of our domestication. We also talk about the rebellion of setting boundaries, being worthy of care and attention, and becoming steadfast in our resistance to grind culture. In this session, we help get back to our center and what is truly supportive to us.
