Are you a working mom who is frustrated by overcoming feelings of guilt and shame? You’re not alone.
Working moms often carry the weight of multiple responsibilities, leaving little room for self-care. This can lead to feelings of guilt and shame, but it doesn’t have to be this way.
In this blog post, we’ll dive into a transformative conversation with Bre Michelle, a mindset coach, who specializes in helping moms overcome these challenges. In our conversation, we explore six powerful mindset shifts to help you conquer these emotions and find your path to confidence and clarity.
From Cosmetology Student to Mindset Coach
In her early years, Bre noticed a recurring theme among her peers. Whether in high school cosmetology class to college, she observed individuals putting their dreams on hold due to external pressures, be it family, relationships, or societal expectations. One striking example was a friend who dreamt of pursuing a fashion career in LA but stayed in Dallas because of her mother’s concerns. This pattern continued as Bre encountered more women facing similar dilemmas.
Initially considering a career in psychology, Bre realized she wanted to offer something lighter but equally impactful. Her journey led her to the realm of coaching, influenced by her passion for personal development. She decided to share her newfound knowledge, eventually becoming a certified coach, equipped with various techniques and modalities to assist not only herself but also others in overcoming obstacles and pursuing their true passions. This personal evolution laid the foundation for her expertise in helping women conquer guilt and shame.
Bre recently joined me on Corrie Lo Radio to discuss the topic of feelings of guilt and shame, and shared some tangible strategies about what to do about it.
