How often do we extend the effort to connect with our parents as the humans they truly are? Do we really know who they were before their parent roles and who they are beyond?

This episode is truly special: My mother, Tina Louise Thomas, and I have a deeply intimate and vulnerable conversation that we initially were hesitant to release. Although, we decided if it helps even just one person connect more deeply with their parents or child, it's worth it.

We talk about holding in emotions (and why my mother felt the need to hide her emotions during my upbringing), accepting aging and death, dealing with regrets, navigating forgiveness, moving forward after divorce and so much more.

This has been a beautiful moment in which we felt deeply connected to each other, and probably one of the most important moments of my life.

What we discuss:

[00:05:48]: - The legacy my mom wishes to leave to her children
[00:07:00] - My challenging emotional openness
[00:07:53] - Holding emotions and covering up suffering

[00:12:37] - Letting thoughts flow
[00:14:45] - Accepting the cycle of life
[00:18:32] - Self-love, growth, and self-expression
