Episode 26

Why not start with me

Published on: 7th July, 2021

What is up everybody?!? We are so excited to be back with you with the start of season two. During the short break that we took we spent a lot of time being consistent and creating content for our Patreon community. We would love for you to join us on Patreon. Check it out to see if there is a tier that fits with your budget and desire to be a part of our close knit community.

In this episode we reference the episode we did with Ana, who is an MFT, discussing trauma and it’s effects. Season one required a lot of personal work and healing from the two of us, and in doing so we’ve reduced some of our trauma, so now as we enter into the beginning of season two, we find our self healing younger version of ourselves…

17 year old Carissa and 9 year old Shelby… Season 2 is dedicated to you!

Here is the Ariana song of the week 

Along with talking about who season two is dedicated to, we also give a little bit of insight as to what topics we will be discussing in season two, for example, sex, money, confidence, boundaries, and the path to self empowerment. We are so excited to share all these conversations with you guys. Season two is going to be chock-full of little wisdom nuggets.

The second half of the episode we share “Our Why” of hosting this podcast and what drives us to continue doing this work. Our messages feel very optimistic with a feel-good tone, however, we discuss there are tricky situations and challenges that require us to navigate in order to get to this space of clarity and courage. You can get some context of the difficult and not-so-pretty work that goes into this transformation and realization of "Our Why" on Patreon, where we share more openly.

The conversation then shifts towards purpose, as in every human being has a purpose. We ask questions about how to find our purpose and what keeps us from fulfilling it. We discuss our intuition versus our ego, and give references to who has helped us along our journey for example we talk about @theAlisonshow.

We are really proud of this conversation, and so excited for you to listen along. We hope it’s sparks some inquiry for you to check in with your purpose. We would absolutely love to hear from you, you can email us at itotallyrelatepod@gmail.com or DM us on Insta.

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.
