On first glance, this episode is just about a boob job that I almost got. But, it's so much more than that.

Your exposure to different things is either keeping you stuck agreeing with old narratives in your mind or it is challenging you to think differently.

Social media is so ever-present in our daily lives, and its impact on how we feel about ourselves is so great. But we don't give it a second thought. We curate our feeds by following people who we think look better than us, are happier, have more money, and ultimately- who we think are overall just *better* than us. 

For me, this played out in a lot of ways. One of those things being that for a long, long time- I thought I needed to get a boob job. I needed a boob job to be considered a successful personal trainer. I needed a boob job to finally feel happy about my body. And I needed a boob job to get back at my ex.

Then something interesting happened. I started paying attention to OTHER NARRATIVES. I started paying attention to other body types that told different stories. And it changed the game for me.

This episode is not about whether or not YOU should consider plastic surgery- it's so much more than that.
