We all want to live our lives to the fullest potential, but sometimes it’s hard! Mental illness, depression and just being human can wear on our ability to thrive in this life. Listen to today’s episode for tips on how to go from merely surviving to thriving!

  • Understanding the difference between languishing and flourishing
  • The best self talk when feeling depressed
  • How to rescript your life story for the better
  • Examples for how to rescript a break up or other painful life experiences
  • The importance of understanding our temperament and inability to change it
  • The value of knowing yourself and bringing that into your relationship
  • And much more!
