Sometimes, life’s challenges push us to put our emotions on hold. In “Life Quakes”, a viewer shares how taking care of her siblings after a difficult divorce led to emotional numbness. She’s carried that pattern into adulthood, and it’s impacting her life now. Hosts Jessica Reyes, Patricia Wu, and guest therapist Joann ‘JoJo’ Venant discusses the importance of self-compassion, seeking professional help, and mindfulness as paths to emotional healing.

Self-Compassion is Key

It’s important to recognize that suppressing your emotions was a coping mechanism, and one you developed out of necessity.

Professional Help is Essential

Therapists can help you understand your emotional patterns, identify feelings, and develop healthier ways to navigate challenging experiences.

Mindfulness Matters

Paying attention to your body and the emotions you experience in the present moment can pave the way to rediscovering your emotional landscape.
