Episode 128: Breaking Through The Illusion of Being Powerless

When you’re struggling with anxiety, depression, and low self-esteem, just keeping your emotions in check seems like a full-time job. Yet, what may hold you back in life, even more, are your survival patterns. Have you ever wondered why you make yourself invisible, procrastinate or please others to get their approval? Our subconscious employs survival patterns to protect us from rejection, failure and hurt. But these patterns disconnect us from our true selves and innate ability to live an empowered life of purpose, fulfillment, and self-reliant confidence. Dr. Friedemann explains how to break free from the six most common subconscious survival patterns and make authenticity and confidence your everyday way of being.
