I know the solution! Let me just tell her what she should do…” Don’t get me wrong. You’re not trying to be a boss-pants and all condescending, you just genuinely know of something that may help. Afterall, it helped you, so surely they want to hear about it! So why would your sage advice fall on deaf...

GET ON THE DEEP, DOWN + DIRTY VIP LIST! This week's episode comes to you courtesy of a listener submission asking how to cultivate trust in relationships when one has created a reality of building up walls and allowing very few people "in". Sound familiar? Learning to trust? Sure. I'll get right on that. Maybe you can relate. Maybe people say nice things to you and you always question their motives. Maybe you have a tendency to distrust your partner because your ex was an asshole. Maybe...

GET ON THE DEEP, DOWN + DIRTY VIP LIST! You walk into work, totally optimistic about your day, and you give your co-worker a casual ‘How-ya-doin’-today?’ She responds with her usual quip about how she’s ‘alright-I-guess’ but immediately launches into complaining about her neighbor/workload/recent ailment. Or maybe it’s every time you give your sister a ring on the phone. You ask how she’s doing. She starts off with all the problems… all the things that are shitty… or all the reason’s...

GET ON THE DEEP, DOWN + DIRTY VIP LIST! It’s round two of ‘Quiz Time’ on the podcast! As you know, I love to talk about all things communication… How to speak up for yourself with that *one* family member, how to actually say ‘no’ to shit that isn’t serving you, and how to have tough conversations like a total badass. Last week, I thought it would be fun to quiz Mr. Smith on some of these communication principles. It turned out that I had so many scenarios that I had to make it a two-part...

Accepting Help from Others: Why You Need to + How to Start [TJJS:EP268]

8/27/2018
More
GET ON THE DEEP, DOWN + DIRTY VIP LIST! You don’t want to put anyone out. You don’t want to be a burden. You’re afraid you’d be asking too much. So you stay quiet. You muscle through. You do everything on your own. Which usually means a constant state of stress, overwhelm, and crankiness is your daily reality. I mean… That’s what a strong person does, right? Just handles it all on their own? Um, no. A strong person is brave. Courageous. And bravery is asking for help when you...

GET ON THE DEEP, DOWN + DIRTY VIP LIST! Ever find yourself hoping and praying that something will work out in your favor? Maybe you're hoping a family function will go well, you get that job you've interviewed for, or perhaps you are hoping *that certain someone* you love will finally get clean and sober. And, although we've been taught that Hope is quite the virtue, I would argue that sometimes Hope destroys. (Yes, I actually just said that.) I think it's far less common to talk about...

GET ON THE DEEP, DOWN + DIRTY VIP LIST!

GET ON THE DEEP, DOWN + DIRTY VIP LIST! You put your name in for a promotion but now your mind is spinning… Is this the best choice for me? What does my gut tell me? Is my inner critic just freaking out and telling me I’m not smart enough for the job? Or maybe you’ve been feeling like a friend of yours is taking advantage of you.

RETREAT WITH ME IN MEXICO. 2 SPOTS LEFT! You’re scrollin’ through Insta or Facebook and you see all these lovely inspirational memes about self-care and making yourself important and you’re like, “Yeah, lemme just book a facial.
