“I think that’s how we begin to prioritize our time and space and our energy, by recognizing that we don’t have control over everything but there are a lot of things that we do have control over and how we spend our time a lot of the times outside of work, outside of kids. We do have those pockets of time that could be dedicated to ourselves. I think it’s important to ask ourselves what we do in those moments.”

In This Episode
In this episode of the Get Loved Up Podcast, Koya Webb talks to Yasmine Cheyenne. Yasmine talks about setting up healthy boundaries, not to isolate yourself, but to ensure that you have more to give to the people, places, and things that matter to you. She also talks about acknowledging one’s pain and taking on the responsibility of working towards self-healing.
“Whatever it is that you identify as, it’s so important to question it because sometimes we’re limiting ourselves by these ideas of what we think we have to be. And it may not actually be fulfilling what we want to be in alignment with.” – Yasmine Cheyenne
