The Road to Self Love

Mar 30, 2021

Well hello, Self Lover! How YOU doin’?

This week we have a very special guest who is just in time to calm all of our nerves about all of the newsworthy things happening in our world.

Let's all take a collective deep breath and welcome Sharon McMahon! You may know her from her very informative Instagram stories and posts, which are notorious for giving non-partisan information about what’s happening around us.

As a government teacher, Sharon has mastered the art of having hard conversations with people about…well, government. Politics is one of those taboo topics that often gets skipped over during lunch meetings, but she’s sharing with us the importance of understanding someone else’s point of view, and gives pointers on how to (you guessed it) listen to understand, rather than listen to respond.

This message is so important, and I hope it helps you as much as it helped me!
