On this heartfelt episode, I welcome my dear friend Nikki Starkiller as we talk all about loving yourself.
Before you listen, please note that we talk about su!c!dal ideations, attempts, and the overall impact su!c!de has on people’s lives, so I caution some listeners who may not receive that part of the discussion well. The exact timestamp of that part of our conversation is from 22:10 - 27:27. If you or someone you love is contemplating su!c!de, please contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline: 1-800-273-8255.
For Nikki, loving herself looks a bit different than it does to the average person, because she was born into the wrong body. Today, she celebrates life as a woman and has such incredible wisdom to offer anyone and everyone who has ever struggled with loving themselves. I found myself moved to tears multiple times during this episode as Nikki shared her story.
Nikki has fully embraced the life she has been given, and gives inspiring advice for those dealing with adversity in their family and with their friends. She explains how choosing to love herself has drastically improved her overall quality of life—despite the pain and suffering she has endured and sometimes still endures.
The tips she offers in this episode are so needed for us all as we navigate the ever-changing world and the pressures that society has on us. Choosing to love yourself takes work, but the work is extremely worthwhile.
