What's your desire? In this episode, we explore your heart's desire, and the beliefs and obligations that prevent you from pursuing it. Religious structures, guilt, and other impediments can keep you stuck in a place where you're building someone else's dream. Don't let misplaced obligation keep you from getting what you need and want.
Sometimes we make decisions that result in a mudslide of regret. I'm not talking about picking milk to drink on a hot July day ("milk was a bad choice.") I'm talking about an unbelievably shitty decision for which there are massive consequences. I love polar explorer Ernest Shackleton's step-by-step example of how to dig yourself out of an impossible situation. Check this out for some encouragement!
Do you need your identity affirmed in the love of God? Do you need to release ideas about God and shame that stem from the story of the Garden of Eden? For the sexual violence survivor, especially a survivor who grew up in a fundamentalist Christian church, shame and God can become inextricably entwined. In this episode, we see that God would never kick two people out of their home for being imperfect.
