Enough of Being a Tamed Woman
In this episode of Bio-hacking Bestie, I’m joined by the amazing Glennon Doyle where we dive into the raw, vulnerable, authentic, uncensored, and life-changing words she shares in her newest book, Untamed. We chat about how we need to quit abandoning ourselves and instead abandon the world’s expectations of us, how we need to quit being good so we can be free, and how we need to start allowing ourselves to actually feel our feelings.
Glennon believes there is a voice of longing inside each woman. We strive so mightily to be good: good partners, daughters, mothers, employees, and friends. We hope all this striving will make us feel alive. Instead, it leaves us feeling weary, stuck, overwhelmed, and underwhelmed. We look at our lives and wonder: Wasn’t it all supposed to be more beautiful than this? We quickly silence that question, telling ourselves to be grateful, hiding our discontent—even from ourselves.
It was extremely important to me to launch this podcast with a strong, empowering woman because that’s my goal with this podcast–to make us both stronger, more empowered women. And I don’t believe there is a stronger, more empowering woman than the amazing Glennon Doyle.
Aside from being the author of Untamed, Glennon is also the New York Times best-selling author of Carry, On Warrior and Love Warrior, as well as the founder and president of the non-profit, Together Rising.
