LISTEN TO THE FULL EPISODE:
This first episode of Checkbox Other is a reverse interview where Nikki’s cousin, Meghan, interviews our host about the journey, through career shifts and personal obstacles, that has led to creating this podcast.
You’ll get a peek into a few key moments when both Nikki and Meghan have felt “othered” in their lives and a glimpse into some of the self-discovery work Nikki has been up to in order to connect more fully with the work she is doing and the world around her.
This episode will be especially interesting for anyone looking to work on boosting their self-compassion and reigning in their self-judgement.
Major themes in this episode include:
an introduction to the concept of feeling “othered” and Nikki’s own personal othering experiences,
flipping the script on internal critics and learning whose voices you want in your internal bleacher cheering section,
the experience of becoming vulnerable and embracing more authentic connection,
and the importance of creating a space that values more diverse voices.
