Today I’m talking to a special guest and we’re unpacking a subject that I find incredibly fascinating: female shame. When shame goes unchecked, how does it impact our life? What happens when you hold onto shame?
When I gave the Real Love Course last year, there was someone in that course who had a pretty amazing transformation: Dimple Mukherjee. Dimple’s story unfolded during our course and she took that story and is now helping other women in the world. So today we’re talking about her decision to talk about her story publicly on her blog, the feedback she has gotten, and why women have a tendency to really hold onto shame and how damaging the can be.
That course that Dimple took is now called the Real Love Revolution and it is starting in a month! And if you want to join our Facebook group and get all of the free stuff I’m doing right now in preparation for that course you can go here and sign up!
