“The resentment and judgment that we are projecting at others is, in fact, the resentment and the judgment we have for ourselves…and that is the greatest violence to inflict that upon yourself. So by releasing that and by choosing to look at the good and choosing to hold that vision of the highest expression for yourself and for someone else is a great act of love.”
Julie and I are back with yet another installment of Ask Me Anything, a twist on my typical long-form interview format where Julie and I engage you — the listener — by addressing the topics and questions you want discussed.
This week’s AMA explores:
- releasing the need for permission to live your life
- empowerment via “choosing yourself”
- practicing creativity in all things
- confronting your fear through action
- removing fear-based stimuli from your life
- managing criticism
- overcoming judgment and resentment
- combating addiction by prioritizing sobriety
Special thanks to Farmer Diddly, Nathan & everyone who contributed to this week’s questions!
I sincerely hope you enjoy the conversation.
