Episode 18

How do you define community?

Published on: 24th March, 2021

Those who surround us can have a really big influence on our attitudes, opportunities to learn, and our mental health overall. It would be impossible to talk through all the ways our friends and community has influenced us in one episode, so this is the first conversation in a series about "Community".

We share some of the beautiful gifts we have learned from those who have shown us great love. In the safe relationships that others have cultivated with us, we have experienced, observed, and felt: unconditional love, non judgement, a safe place to land in hard times, vulnerability and authenticity.

Along with the gifts we received, we also faced challenges. We discuss some of those roadblocks we have come across while creating connections, and the importance of not resisting our true selves so we can be open and available for connections with others.

To hear more about this from us, head over to Patreon for additional content on this topic and more. We would love to hear your experiences about friendship, and your feedback on this episode, you can message us at itotallyrelatepod@gmai.com or connect with us on the 'gram!

This podcast is a collection of conversations. Some of them are interviews, some are guided meditations and breath work, and a lot of them are just the two of us sitting down at the table to talk through our experiences and all the things we’ve learned. We discuss big and heavy topics like trauma, insecurities, body image. And although we might be discussing a weighty issue one moment, we will be laughing the next. We are not experts, we are not perfectionists. We are just two women on our own journey oh yeah, and we’re totally related! We hope to start the conversation with you and share resources, and we hope that you can totally relate too.
