Attempting suicide to prioritizing mental wellness

Finding oneself is a challenge that is faced by many adults but imagine a child that finds themselves in that struggle. That coupled with seeing what you thought was your foundation fall apart.
There is no building anything without a foundation, without the materials to do so. One of the hardest things to is having honest conversations with ourselves where we admit we are wounded and seeking the help that we need.

How we see ourselves has such a great bearing on the things that we tolerate, the things and people that we attach our self-worth to has such a great influence on the things that we believe we deserve.
In this episode, Nthabiseng Ngoepe who is an author of The Mending of a Broken Vessel, is in studio with Divinity Roji and shares her journey of how the brokenness of her home and family led to her being broken and how she has found mending.

What makes our relationships healthy and well

When we considering what makes a good and healthy relationship we hardly ever actually put ourselves as the people in the relationship on the list.

In this episode Divinity Roji hosts relationship experts Mo and Phindi to delve into how the wellness of the individuals in a relationship is a huge contributor to the wellness of the relationship. The conversation covers boundaries, expectations, being vulnerable and establishing trust and closes off with the elements that are key in almost guaranteeing the success of being together.

This is the time that we can take to question where we sit in our roles by examining what kind of experiences are we contributing to. In this episode Divinity Roji is joined by Megan De Klerk and Sihle Bolani and they talk about what work place toxicity is and how we can be the agents of the change that we want to see.

Confronting dysfunction and healing from trauma

We often go through life carrying the expectation of what it will be like when we have gotten to a certain place and achieved certain things. We find ourselves romanticising the ideas of the things that we want and we feel that we need, all the while not living in reality of the present.

In this episode, Divinity Roji speaks to Nompumelelo Runji, author of How I took back my power. This conversation touches on a myriad of issues such as confronting dysfunction, overcoming self-shame, relationship tensions, social pressure and claiming back dignity and respect.

With this as the last episode of season one, may you find the courage to face your reality, to be honest with yourself and take the steps you need to in finding your way back to you.

Spirituality

Spirituality is such a big part of our lives and different people describe it in different ways because each experience can be subjective to one’s own journey. In this conversation with Bunny Majaja, it becomes evident that speaking about spirituality is speaking about life.

The conversation encompasses identity and purpose with a whole lot of undoing and unlearning to find one’s own path. Then of course there is the concept of holding up space and what that means in the spectrum of allowing people to find their own answers.

Imposter Syndrome and Daring Greatly

Few things, if there are any, compare going through life feeling like you are not good enough and having a listening to a little voice that makes you doubt yourself and your achievements, moreover that makes you afraid of going for the things that you want to attain.

In this episode, I speak to Omila Gqoboka about the effect that the imposter syndrome has had in her life, how she continuously overcomes it and how she has dared the odds in creating the life that she wanted to live.
