Welcome to The Fully Lived Life podcast! A podcast for those who are longing to pursue the full life and want to break free from anything that holds them back. Listen in as two friends - a psychologist, Dr. Merry, and a life coach, Gillian - talk about life, love, and purpose - with wisdom, humor, and transparency - through the lens of science, psychology, and faith.
In today’s episode, Gillian takes a hard look at what was going on in her life when she was scarfing down cinnamon buns and chips to avoid feeling the powerlessness of her weakness and vulnerability to the ongoing Covid reality.
In her book “Lies We Tell Ourself - The Psychology of Self Deception”, the author Dr. Courtney Warren encourages us to pay attention to:
Review the list below and be truthful to yourself about the blindspot you have.
1 denying anger with your shortcomings because it is wrong to get angry
2 denying your own needs and neediness/giving to get
3 denying the avoidance of failure
4 denying the ordinariness of your life
5 denying the emptiness especially in the area of relationships
6 denying any rebellion or disobedience coming out of your behavior or thoughts
7 denying any pain and suffering in your life by running the other way
8 denying yourself any weakness or area of vulnerability
9 denying the avoidance of any conflict or disagreement and its cost to you/others
