In this week's episode:
- Bec wants to talk about what blinders we still have about ourselves in our 40s… Nat prefers the more Jungian language of “shadow sides!”
- Bec shares two of what she believes are her shadow qualities but Nat reframes one of them, Bec’s chameleon-like tendency in a group, to be a strength.
- Bec reframes Nat’s tendency to walk away from conversations as having a positive sense of personal boundaries. They talk about multiplicities and embracing the many parts of themselves.
- The sisters land on a reframe we can all take on: “Name the need I have for the self I am today!”
We reference this episode of the Hidden Brain hosted by Shankar Vedantam.
