Facing challenges makes us stronger, but that doesn’t mean it feels great in the moment. Hard things are…hard. No matter how many successes we’ve had in the past, many of us still struggle with self-doubt. How do we respond? In Episode 116 of Edit Your Life, Christine and Asha talk about their own battles with insecurity and imposter syndrome. They share 7 practical tips for tackling life’s challenges with confidence, or, at least, with self-compassion.
