I should know better!” Maybe you catch yourself dealing with MORE shit with your fam and you’re like, “I thought I already dealt with this! Why is this coming up again!?

Or maybe you’ve been “dabbling” in personal development but you haven’t really made the commitment to implement what you’ve learned. You catch a podcast here and there or take a home study course and yet you find yourself wondering, “Why am I still not happy? Maybe this doesn’t work for me.
