Dr. Laura explores the topic of deep disappointment in this solo episode. She pulls from a recent experience in life that brought up shame and sadness which led her to moments of questioning her own worthiness. Maybe you can relate? She offers this story as a way to share her journey around disappointment and how she approaches her own healing. Dr. Laura gives a few key tools on how to witness the story you are telling yourself about what is causing you shame, reframe it, and see it instead as a gift. She also reminds you that although we each have our own unique experiences, you are not alone in having moments or periods of discomfort, pain, disappointment, and sadness.
