Being a Good Enough Vet...and 90-98% of Women Have It
I am researching new concepts and ideas about female (and male) bodies while recording "The Body-Image Boot Camp" for my Coaching Program. (My clients get access to it as a part of their tool-bag).
And I CANNOT NOT share with all of you THESE pieces of information.
1. 90-98% of women have cellulite, starting with the pre-teenage/teenage period.
2. Cellulite has NO pathological significance, JUST an esthetic one.
Now, how is THIS related to being a "good-enough" vet?!?!🤦🏻♀️
Shame is NOT a primary emotion, but a taught/learned one.
We are taught to be ashamed of a feature of our bodies that is NORMAL.
It's like being ashamed of the shape of our kidneys, and we'd keep investing billions of dollars in changing their shape, with limited if not zero permanent success.
Shame is a LEARNED emotion.
And that's a WONDERFUL thing to acknowledge, understand, and accept, BECAUSE now we can change it.
The freaking IMPOSTOR SYNDROME that the vast majority of women in the veterinary profession have is BASED ON SHAME!
The shame of "being found out!"
The shame of "not being good enough"!
REPEAT for the people in the back:
-we are taught to feel shame about a perfectly NORMAL feature of a female human body.
-we can unlearn it.
-the same emotion (SHAME) is the core of the impostor syndrome.
-we can unlearn this as well.
THIS IS SOOOO FUN FOR ME TO PLAY WITH AND TEACH HOW TO UNLEARN IT!
Sometimes just this awareness is enough to get the shift in your beliefs.
But if that's not the case for you, I can definitely help you get rid of ANY learned/internalized SHAME!
