"Watch & What" with us at our first-ever public online meetup where we premiere our next episode "Cancelled". Reserve your spot below.
One thing that comes up on the episode is how it is hard for us to receive complements and how we are so starved for complements. Either we try to deflect them or they inflate our ego. I think that also relates to connecting to our authentic self with others who are on a similar journey. We are so starved for authentic conversation, thoughts, ideas, and even (respectful) disagreements that we either don't trust them (am I just subscribing to brainwashing or an echo chamber?) or we accept what the people say as gospel and don't question it. With complements we should hear them, evaluate them, accept them (if genuine) or ignore them (if not) and then move on. Similarly with comments/conversations--hear them, evaluate them, ponder them, develop your own thoughts about them and react accordingly (continue the discussion or move on).
It was wonderful to dive deeper into the discussion with everyone's questions and input.
With a group of 9 lovely people from over the world we had an engaging discussion which brought more insight and perspective to the topic. We will be doing more of these in the future so stay tuned. Thanks for participating!
