Expanding Identities In Motherhood with Lindsey / by Mandy Wintink

Show Notes

Background:

We started off with Lindsey reflecting on her maternity leave (which is about to end) and the anxiety she felt during her time off from work. It fed into a discussion about body image, which Lindsey and I have covered to a great extent through our co-founded organized, Body Monologues. The theme of this conversation was our “Expanding Identity”.

Reflective Questions:

  • What is the difference between giving something space and giving something energy?
  • Does exercise ground you? If so, why? How? What forms?
  • When we let go of one identity [how] does that give space for some other dormant aspect of our identity come to the forefront?
  • “Our core issues are our core issues.”By that, we meant that the same issues manifest in different ways depending on the circumstances. Do you agree that’s true for you?
