And when it is our default, most times we don’t realize we’re doing it.

We don’t realize we’re people-pleasing or abandoning ourselves or assimilating.

We don’t realize we’re upholding white supremacy or the male dominated narrative or respectability politics...

How do we retrain our Body to do it all differently?

Oooh I love these questions! I think we have to decide first and foremost. Making this decision has to be intentional and relational. Then I think it's a process of awareness, remembering, reflecting, and conscious behavior change, accountability. AND I also think it's very important to allow yourself grace and humanity. You're right, that muscle memory is strong! Thanks Doc!
