On today’s ‘Cuppa With Katie’ Show I want to speak to the very sensitive subject of STI’s.
I want to shine a light on this topic because of the shame and self-sabotage I see it creating in incredible women who deserve to love and be loved unapologetically.
To summarise, I was speaking with a client recently who is preparing herself on all levels – mind, body, emotions, spirit – to call in her man. She wants an empowered man so she is stepping into her empowered self by doing her inner work.
One of the reasons she is single is because she has been carrying enormous shame over a one night stand she had in her 20’s – around 30 years ago. Yes, you read that right, THIRTY years.
This woman is one of the most intelligent, caring, kind, open-hearted, balanced and beautiful women I have ever met. She is so easy to love – on our first ever call my eyes welled up with love for her because I felt her big beautiful soul so profoundly. And yet, shame has held her back and restricted the flow of love in and out of her life. That shame has also had her adopt some unhealthy behavioural habits to distract and numb her pain which have only layered self-loathing into her experience of herself.
Today she is breaking free. She is letting it go. She is remembering the truth of who she is and viewing that ‘one night’ all those years ago in a new light, with self-compassion, self-forgiveness and self-love.
Life is too short to be held back by shame.
Today I take a stand for her and her story and I trust that what I share resonates with you too.
