{Audio} Episode 004: Give Yourself and Others Permission to Take Off the Cape

As salaamu alaikum sister, and welcome back to Woman by Nature Radio!

As a woman, how often have you pushed through and showed up for others – when you actually felt stressed, depleted, or in need of an emotional and physical time out?

Yep, me too. More times that I can count.

However, in recent years I’ve become SO much better at managing this tendency and have committed to give myself what I need to thrive – even if that means a “time out” to pause, reflect and heal. But as I share in today’s podcast, even someone focused on self-care can slip back into this pattern if you’re not careful.

In this installment, I share the story of a recent event in my life that illustrates this point perfectly. I’ll also share how in the midst of feeling tired, sad, and physically ill – a beautiful sister gave me the greatest gift. The gift of permission.


This episode is PERFECT for you if you identify as being a “doer”, helper or support to those around you. It will resonate if you are juggling a ton of responsibilities and feel afraid of what will happen if you sit down for even a moment. It’s also for you if you’ve been taught that you don’t deserve to pause… and that you owe service to those around you.

I say it’s time to change the status quo!
