Something I thought I would never do as a mother was become friends with my children, but here I am, and I am loving it all. And this week, I am joined by my child, Faith. Our relationship hasn’t always been straightforward, but I am so happy to be where we are right now and share our conversation this week.
Faith has experienced a number of changes since they last joined me on the podcast, and they are currently about to face another change as they embark on their journey to college. But this time is bittersweet for Faith, and we’re discussing why that is in this episode.
Tune in this week and hear a candid conversation with Faith as they share their journey with self-love and feeling intense love for another person as well as the concept of learning to express who you are as a person. We discuss social constructs, feminism, patriarchy, and love, and Faith walks me through some concepts I am somewhat unfamiliar with.
