Honestly, What Is Emotional Baggage?
Simply put, our emotional baggage misinforms our decision making. Women in midlife have limitless choices on how to live their next chapter. We need real information about our talents, gifts, and capabilities in order to even see the opportunities that are before us.
When our brain gets flooded with self-doubt and hurt feelings from our history, we cannot see our present or future with clarity. The tough part is sorting truth from fiction.
On the podcast, Joanie Marx joins me to share the wisdom she has gleaned from owning an import/export craft supply business, launching an acting career in her 40s, becoming a published author in her 60s, while continuing the process of shedding her own emotional baggage, embracing her true self, and building a new set of beliefs about her self and her future.
In this episode, Joanie and Mary each share practical advice, exercises, and insight on how you can figure out why you seem stuck right where you are – in concrete shoes.
So many obstacles!
What may seem to be obstacles to you moving ahead are only reflections of your emotional baggage. Most things are, in fact, figure-outable for any resourceful and committed woman. So, ask yourself, “What is holding me back?”
Your inner critic
Fear? Self-doubt? Can’t ask for help? Whatever it is, it is most probably completely false and born from your emotional baggage. This nasty stuff pops up everywhere as the domineering inner critic voice.
Learn practical steps to respond to that voice with strength and confidence. Grab the wheel and head in the new direction of YOUR choosing!
