Perfectly Imperfect with Christine and Regina

#38 - Lighting the Darkness with Mimi Chao (mimochai)

Episode Summary

We’re too often told to stay positive! Think happy thoughts! Don’t dwell in the negative! And while this can be great advice to help deal with life's woes, how do we approach it authentically so that resentment and anger don't take over? In many aspects of our lives, we suppress a lot of feelings and emotions in order to move on and "be positive". Sometimes it’s for survival, other times it becomes a way of life. But it doesn't mean those "bad" emotions are really gone! This week, our fairy soul sister Mimi Chao joins us as we explore the many ways we have dealt with the suppression of negatives memories from past experiences and how the consequences have affected our lives. We also dive into how we are currently processing all the horrific news happening daily in today's political climate from Harvey Weinstein, Trump, to the devastating Sutherland Springs shooting. How do we find happiness when there is negativity everywhere?!
