Well, we’re here! Our 100th and final episode. Tracey and I thought it was only fitting to spend some time talking about goodbyes and transitions as we say farewell to this project after two years of making it. In this conversation, we talk about relationships, identity, scarcity, and a concept Brene Brown calls “foreboding joy.” We hope you enjoy this discussion.
Topics discussed include:
- Our feelings about saying goodbye to the podcast
- Staying in relationships too long because you’re afraid to say goodbye
- Preventative medicine for relationship health
- Issues in relationships never come out of nowhere
- Transitions in relationships and saying goodbye to previous incarnations of the same relationship
- Missing the younger versions of your kids as they age and not wanting your kids to grow up
- Our reluctance to let go of peak experiences (i.e. foreboding joy)
- Scarcity mindset about joy
- We can’t live in a state of elation all the time
- How old we are vs. how old we FEEL
- Saying goodbye to old identities
- Inside/outside congruency
- We are capable of feeling multiple feelings at the same time
- The power of changing one thing
- And more!
