Giovanna Capozza - Why Love Yourself First is B.S!

October 9, 2019

Welcome back to another episode of She Rises! Today, Giovanna is talking about why the notion of Loving Yourself First is B.S. As someone who has been tricked into this new age manta of reaching some level of "complete", Giovanna will talk about how she changed that and why you can't get it "right". Giovanna used to think that she must be attracting certain qualities and men because she didn't love herself enough in certain areas. This is a falsehood that we tell ourselves. You don't want to miss out on this episode!

  • Giovanna dives into the spiral of self love to get what we want
  • Giovanna talks about being in a healthy relationship and what that took
  • Giovanna discusses finding what your personal values are and how that will create the shift
  • Giovanna emphasizes your value proposition

Homework:

  • What is your value proposition?

    • Write down everything that is valuable to you. Everything you bring to a friendship. To the world. To life.
    • If you struggle to do this, call a friend, call family, call someone who knows you well and ask them.
  • Find an avatar for yourself. Someone you admire, their life, their relationship..and ask them...do you love yourself 100%.
    • If they are honest, they will probably say no...that they (like all of us) are a work in progress
