251. Embracing the Softer Side

Season 2, episode 251
30 min / Published

What does the word vulnerability mean to you?  Everyone can struggle with allowing themself to open up and be vulnerable. More often we hear about Men struggling in this area; however, we tend to not recognize the inner "strong woman struggle" that many Ladies face!  Particularly as Women of color, there is the notion that you should always be strong. But, what if we told you that being vulnerable is strong? It takes strength to soften the heart and share the inner you in a safe place. In this episode of the Challenge Yo Self podcast, Joy and Ashley share their softer side and discuss what true vulnerability looks like.  The hosts goes on to mention tennis extraordinaire Naomi Osaka who, in an unprecedented move, decided to take her self-care and mental health in her own hands when she walked out of the French Open after declining to take interviews before the match. We all need this level of confident vulnerability and self care. Get your softest blanket, a cup of tea and listen to the softer side of the Challenge Yo Self podcast. Challenge: We challenge you to do one thing/let go of one thing to improve the quality of your life this week starting now! Leave us a voice message or email to let us know what you noticed about yourself. The theme this season..... is RPO pronounced "REE-PO" (Relationships, Passions, Obsessions). This season the Challenge Yourself will encourage, empower, and motivate you through the often mysterious, mesmerizing, and sometimes misleading world of relationships - relationships with yourself, relationships with others and intimate relationships. Whether talking about our own personal relationships and lessons or gaining perspective from the line up of highly-esteemed special guests, you will have the opportunity to become empowered with INTENTION in a world of "Whatever" and "YOLO".
