“Once you get a taste of what it’s like to be aligned and to have ownership over yourself, I don’t think there is a greater motivation than that.” –Sara Kuburic (The Millennial Therapist)
Have you ever wondered, “Who am I, and why am I here?” If so, this interview is for you, my friend.
I am beyond excited to have Dr. Sara Kuburic, better known as The Millennial Therapist on Instagram, on the show to talk about her new book, It’s On Me: Accept Hard Truths, Discover Your Self, and Change Your Life.
Sarah is an existential therapist and has had a lifelong interest in psychology. This book was inspired by a loss of self she experienced in her twenties, which she also saw in her therapy clients. If you’ve felt meaningless or purposeless, like you don’t know yourself, then I invite you to tune in as Sara offers many tips on how to discover your sense of self.
I’ve loved her work for a while and I hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I did!
