Female mental health clinicians face many barriers to engaging in truly meaningful self-care practices, perhaps the most powerful of which are societal messages that encourage us to adopt a self-sacrificing way of being that focuses primarily on the needs of others.
In this month's episode of Thrivival 101 we had the pleasure of speaking with Enid De Jesus, a Florida Licensed therapist and coach who’s made it her mission to help sensitive introverted women create lives that honour their own needs.
Enid shares how her own experiences of breaking free from unhelpful narratives and unapologetically honouring her own introverted needs led her to creating an authentic, energy protecting lifestyle. Now if that isn’t self-care, we don’t know what is! Enid also discusses the fears that showed up along the way, what she found helpful to overcome them, and how protecting her energy was an integral component of this process.
