In this episode, Candice discusses the importance of our personal and collective stories, how they shapes our minds, our hearts, and our view of the world. She offers an intimate glimpse into her childhood, revealing a repeating narrative that kept her in a paradoxical holding pattern well into adulthood and introduces the 1st key of courageous self-expression: authority. Candice walks you through three common patterns of reactivity that keep us stuck repeating the same dramas over and over again in our lives, following up with a helpful alternative.
