Unpolished 07: The Vulnerability Hangover

Have you ever woken up the day after you’ve done something vulnerable and thought to yourself – oh my goodness, what did I do?! Well, that is what Brene Brown calls a vulnerability hangover. In this episode, we dive deep into this topic and talk about our recent experiences and what we do to recover.
 
We examine the different roadblocks we come up against as we try to take steps forward on our entrepreneurial journeys—fear, our inner critics, the seeking of validation—and we share different ways we can support ourselves to feel more secure with our progress. We can learn from even the smallest actions we take. The vulnerability hangover can be a sign that we’ve taken a big step forward. The key is to continue to ask ourselves: what did we learn from this?

Unpolished 01: Resistance is Futile

What happens when we allow ourselves to just feel the feelings? It’s scary, but an important way to move through some tough emotions. This episode starts off by examining one of our favorite quotes: “Pain = Struggle x Resistance” and later comes back to the idea of clean pain vs. dirty pain and how pain can actually be used as a path to learning and growth. We also talk about how we talk to ourselves is so different than how we talk to our friends—and the need to find more compassion on the road to show up as the best version of ourselves, no matter what that actually looks like.
