How to Know Yourself to Grow and Mature

September 14, 2021

We say all the time that our deepest need is to be known and loved. But when it comes to being known, how well do you know yourself? Are you knowable? How do you really "know" yourself in order that others too might know you and love you?

In this episode, we share and analyze one man's story to help you understand how to "map" your own emotional system to get a clearer picture of who you are. This message is about hope and growth. Dive in with us to go deeper with yourself and others.

We all live with a core fear of some kind, a belief deep in our soul that states we aren't worthy or that we will be rejected or make a mistake and fail (and more; core fears are personal).

In this episode, we brainstorm (on air) 50(ish) things to do when your core fear gets triggered. There is hope for responding to core fear in healthy ways and we want to model for you an exercise that can help you do this well.

Your brain is an organ in your body that can break down, especially when there has been trauma or chaos in your history.

This episode helps you understand how to use all the available resources for better brain health and more peace.
