You might know Sara Kuburic as the Millennial Therapist on Instagram, where she shares insanely relatable advice about navigating the human experience with her 1.6 million followers. Sara’s new book, It’s On Me, encourages us to get to know ourselves fully and take responsibility for our lives. 

In this episode, Sara opens up to Krista about her struggles with panic attacks and a dissociation from her body – a deep state of suffering that eventually led her to a life of authenticity.

When we ignore the signs our body sends us, we ignore the parts of ourselves that are longing to be seen, nurtured, and healed. Sara talks us through her journey of accepting her highly sensitive nature and beginning to connect the dots between what she was feeling in her body and the parts of her life that required change.

She empowers us to tune out the noise of everyday life, tune into our own beings, and ask ourselves, ‘who am I really?’ to find true peace and freedom within. 

We also talk about:

  • Why searching for purpose can be painful
  • Healing abusive relationships with our bodies
  • Acknowledging your suffering
  • Authenticity vs. self loss
  • The ups and downs of discovering yourself
  • Why self awareness is the ultimate self care 
  • Why we must engage with life fully
