Connections with Jaci 05: Comparison of Pain & Unworthiness in Healing


Jaci & Tamzen talk about the tendency we have to compare our pain to others, and to negate our worthiness of healing. The notion that what we're going through isn't bad enough.


Podcast notes:

  • Sometimes we feel like what we’re struggling with isn’t as bad as others, and that it doesn’t deserve attention

  • The same thing can happen to two people and one is okay and the other is shattered. Trauma effects us all so differently, and that’s okay.

  • How allotted timeframes like: 5 days bereavement, 12 weeks parental leave etc. effect our shame around extended grief or needed adjustment periods
