62: How to Cultivate Unconditional Self Worth Outside of Sex, Your Career, and Toxic Relationships
Self-love is the greatest middle finger of all time. This week, Zuri sits down with Dr. Adia Gooden, a licensed clinical psychologist, for a fantastic conversation on how we can cultivate a sense of unconditional self-worth outside of our career ambitions and our romantic and platonic relationships. They explore how we can show up for ourselves by reinforcing our boundaries, speaking up for ourselves (including in the bedroom), and the ultimate key to creating a healthy romantic relationship.
Dr. Adia also shares her personal story of contracting an STD while in college, how that experience rocked her sense of self-worth, how self-forgiveness freed her from shame, and how it can free you.
