How do we learn to own our triggers, stop blaming our partner, overcome jealousy, and heal toxicity in our relationships?
‘Emotions are the Google Maps of your relationship’, according to today’s guest, Dr. Julia DiGangi. And instead of ignoring our profound innate intelligence, we need to learn to guide our behavior in more intelligent ways.
This starts with developing radical self-love, acceptance, and attunement, as we use our past adversity to empower ourselves and take greater personal responsibility as we navigate a life where we don’t get stuck emotionally.
Dr. Julia DiGangi is a neuropsychologist whose work explores the fascinating intersection between our brain, our emotional pain, and our emotional power.
Today’s episode looks at how our brains process stressful and traumatic experiences – and then how we can turn those painful things that have happened in our past into our empowerment.
It’s time to turn those triggers into positive action with an understanding of ‘emotional physics’ that will get your ‘Google Maps emotions’ headed in the right direction!
