This week’s guest is a force of nature, a leader and a wise, wise woman. Debbi Carberry is a therapist, a clinical social worker, possibly Brené Brown’s twin, a mama of four, owner and leader of five businesses, loving partner, friend, and so much more.
Debbi and I go deep straight away, talking about shame, self-acceptance, self-compassion, kindness and building individual relationships with each person we love. As our conversation weaves from love to self-criticism, via the power and impact of silent genetic messages that are passed from generation to generation, we exchange our experiences as mothers, leaders and women doing our best, every day.
There’s so much more in this episode: we talk about control within the family unit, the inability of most adults and children to tolerate discomfort, and what the consequences may be, the importance of dopamine and why we’re raising a generation of kids who are dopamine-deficient because we don’t let our children struggle anymore.
Honestly, I stepped away from this interview with my heart brimming over and my brain beyond excited. I can’t urge you enough to go and listen to this conversation, then share it.
