Have you ever been told you're 'too emotional'?
It's a phrase many of us have encountered at some point in our lives. But what if we told you that those very emotions, often seen as 'too much,' are not a weakness but a source of incredible strength and emPOWERment?
Emotions are not a bad thing; in fact, they're an essential part of what makes us human. They're like the notes in a symphony, each contributing to the richness and depth of the music of our lives. They provide us with vital information, guiding us through the intricate dance of human experience.
In this enlightening episode, you'll hear the inspiring story of Dr. Pat Baxter, who, like many of us, was once told she was 'too emotional.' But instead of letting those words define her, she chose a different path. Dr. Pat harnessed her emotions as a source of strength and embarked on a remarkable journey of self-discovery.
