Have you ever felt "I am not enough"? We have. How and when was this allowed to become a belief and an inner truth? Through learning, and a lot of unlearning, we affirm that all of us are enough. Period. Rather than continue to house self-beliefs that don’t serve us, we're calling out and exploring them, and deciding what to do with them.
Yet, as fellow gold-star searchers and approval seekers in pursuit of validation, there was a void in feeling never enough. But now, as recovering perfectionists, and rehabilitated people-pleasers, we invite you to join us as we tell life stories, explore pop culture, laugh, cry (I'm not crying, you're crying), and detangle the tentacles of "not-enoughness" in our minds. Together, we'll walk away with cheeks sore from smiling, brains full of thoughts, cups overflowing, and spirits lifted with a renewed sense of strength and self worth, daring to believe that, just as we are, we are all simply enough.
