#42 Wake Up, Barbie!

Last week, I went to see the Barbie movie with my two kids, and surprisingly, it sparked some profound reflections on life, patriarchy, and our relationship with alcohol.

As I've been reading the book "Radical Awakening" and delving deeper into the work of Gabor Maté and This Naked Mind, I've noticed the incredible synchronicity of these themes.

The movie's message about the patriarchy's impact on women struck a chord with me, leading me to explore the reasons why women turn to alcohol as a coping mechanism. In this episode, I'll discuss how breaking free from the trance of patriarchy is a powerful journey that can lead to liberating ourselves from alcohol's grip.

We'll uncover the roots of self-suppression and the negative self-talk that often drives us to drink, and I'll share insights on how to transform self-judgment into self-empowerment.

Episode Takeaways:

  • Discover the unexpected wisdom found in the Barbie movie and the book "Radical Awakening" that sheds light on patriarchy's impact on women.
  • Explore the connection between alcohol consumption, self-suppression, and the societal norms that influence our drinking habits.
  • Learn the importance of understanding the root causes of our drinking behavior to achieve lasting transformation.
  • Embrace the journey of waking up to our authentic selves and breaking free from the limitations imposed by the patriarchy and alcohol.
