I’m excited to share this talk with you that I had with growth coach and podcaster Monica Packer about the lie of I am broken. Monica is all about progress and is passionate about helping people move from what feels broken to walking in their true identity.
In this chat, she addresses our humanity. We cannot live up to a standard of perfection, but we also don’t live to a standard of brokenness.
As a reminder, it’s not supposed to be easy!
Points from our conversation regarding:
Women often believe they’re uniquely broken, and if they feel this way, it’s hard to believe it’s possible to change.
Moving away from the mindset of feeling not good enough beyond repair is a lifelong process. The awareness of that brought Monica freedom.
Confirmation bias tends to break us the most – we see what we want to see.
Changing our perspective from feeling not good enough to being human starts with awareness.
2 ways you can be aware of brokenness without embracing it. Increase awareness of your thoughts without judgment and pay attention to what our bodies tell us.
If you don’t want to navigate from a place of brokenness, you have to navigate from a place of “who am I?” If you can’t start there, go from “who do I want to be?”
Accepting your humanity vs. using it as an excuse is saying I’m both human, and this is who I want to be.
