179: How to prioritize yourself as an empath & people pleaser w/ Dr. Neeta Bhushan

by neeta bhushan


Quote: “I know my purpose is far greater. I am more than my career and what I do for work. I am expanding myself.”

Hey, loves! As the holiday season comes rolling in, we come face to face with challenges experienced by empaths and people-pleasers in prioritizing themselves, especially during these busy times. We often forget to prioritize our own needs, desires, and self-care, which is vital in contributing to personal growth and positive shifts in life In today’s episode, we emphasize the importance of recognizing one’s purpose beyond career and the need for brave conversations and the impact of such conversations on dignity and respect, especially for leaders, coaches, and community builders. We touch upon my experience as part of the Filipino community, discussing cultural expectations and challenges in speaking up for oneself. 

In this episode I talk about…

  • Importance of brave conversations for leaders and the impact on dignity and respect
  • Reflection on the busy holiday season and the difficulty of carving out self-care time
  • Prioritizing our needs, desires, and self-care and contributing to personal growth
  • Navigating challenges with cultural expectations
