Emotional Childhood vs. Emotional Adulthood: A Valuable Lesson on Taking Control of Your Happiness w/Krista Olsen

podcast Nov 11, 2021

85 - 90% of adults function in emotional childhood. We outsource our happiness to others. We blame, rage, lash out and generally avoid taking full responsibility for how we think and feel. It’s what we’ve been taught our entire lives - but unfortunately what we’ve been taught significantly disempowers us.

The truth is, to have the lives we want, we have to move into emotional adulthood, but how do we change the way we’ve functioned for so long?

In today’s episode, we have a special guest taking over the Simply Worth It podcast. OBGYN and life coach, Krista Olsen shares the power of emotional adulthood and how to achieve it.
