    In Defense of Being Selfish

    with Carolyn Byrd



    In Defense of Being Selfish examines the importance of flipping the narrative of selfishness in order to heal our traumas, work through blocks, and live our most fulfilled, purposeful life.

    ~3 Key Takeaways~ 

    1) We all have trauma, big T or little T, it's there.

    2) These traumas show up in our thoughts, physical health, and behavior as blocks, and affect every part of your life.

    3) The life of your dreams is on the other side of these blocks, but in order to step into that life you must be selfish with the care we give to ourselves before we worry about the care we give to others.
