Alayna Joy is a trained mindfulness and self-compassion teacher. But you might know her better from her YouTube videos. She’s a cat-loving LGBTQ+ content creator from Canada. She makes videos about the LGBTQ+ community, veganism, and mental health.
And along the way, she’s been learning a lot about herself. Most recently, the realization that she's a lesbian, not bisexual. And she's done all that learning on camera, in front of the internet. How did she get through it? Self-compassion. Being kind and patient with herself. Not judging herself for questioning things and discovering new thoughts that she didn’t notice before. So in this episode, Alayna talk about mindfulness, self-compassion, and being your true self.
