In this episode, Tara Romano talks about her passion for self-development and she opens up about how achieving everything she thought she wanted was not the recipe for a happy life. Tara shares her realization of the fact that she had been doing things because she felt accepted and seen but not because it was truly what made her feel good. She relates this to that nagging feeling of not being enough, and how the pandemic has helped her heal when it comes to this subject.

However, you will always be growing, changing, and learning about yourself. This is why it’s so important that  you continue to learn to love who you are now while you work towards the best version of yourself.

  • Self-development and self-love is something we work on constantly. There’s no end of the road for growth and learning to love yourself.
  • You might have all the things you think you needed to get to be happy. However, these things will not fulfill you if you are not fulfilled yourself.
  • Make your decisions because they feel good for you and not because you want external acceptance.
  • Self-care is one of the ways in which you can practice and become better at loving yourself.
  • Comparing yourself with your perception of other people makes you lose yourself.
  • The experiences you go through are not happening “to” you, they are lessons “for” you.
