How do you manage yourself and your life when things don’t go your way or even just to plan? When things are a bit awry do you treat yourself and talk to yourself well and with kindness and compassion? Or does the way you respond to such times make the situation you are responding to even worse than it was to begin with? Phewww. Deep sigh out! I think we might have all been there. Our guest today on The Priestess Podcast, David Trotter, talks to us about the incredible practice of self-soothing and how we can better respond to the inevitably difficult times we will all experience on our life and spiritual journeys. You’re soon to learn that soothing is not just for babies and children. We need it as adults too.
