S06|03 - Inner Child Healing

Feb 27, 2023

Inner Child Healing is a concept that may have been around for a while, but has lately gained growing interest. Understanding and acknowledging wounds that we have brought from child (from home, church, community, school etc.) is a huge help to our overall emotional wellness. When we can start to heal our wounds, we won’t be acting from that hurt place- and we can help add more love and light to those in our sphere.

On today’s episode:

  • What inner child healing is and why it’s so important to our emotional wellness
  • What would a supportive, loving relationship with a parent look like?
  • Re-parenting/self-mothering and how we can become the supportive parent that we need, right now
  • Tools to help facilitate our inner child healing
  • I take you through a workshop of questions to help guide this work for you
  • How healing your wounds can help the world

Episode Transcript

Crystal The Parenting Coach: Hi, I'm Crystal The Parenting Coach. Parenting is the thing that some of us just expected to know how to do. It's not like other areas of your life where you go to school and get taught, get on the job training, or have mentors to help you, but now you can get that help here.

I believe that your relationship with your children is one of the most important aspects of your life, and the best way that you can make a positive impact on the world and on the future. I've made parental relationships my life study, and I use life coaching tools, emotional wellness tools, and connection-based parenting to build amazing relationships between parents and their children.

If you want an even better relationship with your child, this podcast will help you. Take my Parenting Quiz, the link is in the show notes. Once we know what your parenting style is, we will send some tips tailored to you and a roadmap to help you get the most out of my podcast. I invite you to help me spread the word by sharing your favorite episode on social media or with a friend. 


Don't forget to check out my new mindset journal for parents at, which will help you to parent calm, confident children that you love to be around. 


Hi, welcome to the podcast today, Inner Child Healing.

All right, I'm excited to dig into this topic with you today because this is something that I think is getting a little bit more popular and a little bit more talked about. 

And I also think there's something pretty significant that's missing in a lot of the conversations that I have heard and that I've been a part of; and I want to really dig into what that is and what we do here. 

And I'm also going to talk a little bit about the retreats that I put on because by the time this one airs, maybe the May one will be sold out, I'm not sure, but I'm having another one in September – and the registration is not open for that one yet. So, you can at least get on the interest list. But this is a lot of the work that we do at the retreat. 

And because it's in person, it has a really cool and unique energy to it. And because we incorporate some guided meditation and some visualization and some excellent yoga, it makes it a really cool kind of holistic experience there also. 

So, I'll talk about that at the end. But right now, we're going to dig into Inner Child Healing. 

One note before we do is that I am not a registered Mental Health Therapist. If you have significant trauma or if thinking about your childhood is really traumatizing to you – brings up some like really strong emotions and you just feel like you can't go there – please, make sure that you have somebody supportive with you as you do this work. Or maybe don't listen to this episode, wait until the next one. 

Also, you could find, in your area-- I have a friend who found someone who did Inner Child Healing through therapy; and she just kind of googled that on Psychology Today, and just looked for somebody that said on their website something about Inner Child Healing.

So, you can go find a therapist, find a counselor if you need some extra support; and you can't find one of those, message me and I'll see if I can help support you find somebody in your area also. 

So, just so you know, this is just educational. This is just interesting ideas. But this does not replace mental health therapy, if that is what is needed for you right now.


What Inner Child Healing is and why it’s so important to our emotional wellness

So, into first what it is, and maybe this is something that you have not heard before and you're not quite sure what it is, or maybe you understand it a little bit and you'd like a better description of it. 

I am going to use a definition that I found from Tiffany Roe. If you don't follow her on Instagram, she's a great person to follow. She's a health therapist, and she puts out a lot of great information. 

So, she said that it's; contacting, listening to, communicating with, and nurturing our inner child.

So, Inner Child Healing or inner child work is contacting, listening to, communicating with, and nurturing our inner child

So, we all have an inner child, like who we were when we were first developing in our formative years; that self-concept was developed in our formative years. And that little inner child version of us is also inside of ourselves. It's like kind of having a different self within us. 

I don't think of it as like-- I mean, maybe it sounds weird, but I don't feel like that it's weird. I feel like it's just looking back onto the different phases and developments that I went through in my life, and how that's still impacting me today. So, that's kind of another way that you could look at it. 


What would a supportive, loving relationship with a parent look like?

So, one of the questions that she asked was, what would a supportive, loving parent have looked like and how can I be that to myself? 

And I think that's like the best in a nutshell description that there is of Inner Child Healing is, how can I go back to those times that were maybe heavy or hard and maybe are retriggering me right now – and how can I now be that supportive parent that maybe I needed when I was a child? 

Another note here is that this doesn't have anything to do with hating our parents, and telling our parents that they did a terrible job and that they should have done things differently. 

In fact, I actually think part of healing is the opposite; is of coming to terms with their humanity and the mistakes that they made and the problems that they had, and that they didn't give us everything that we needed. 

Also, in that, no parent – no matter how amazing they are – could have given us everything that we needed all of the time. That's just because we're all humans, and we're not all perfect. 

And so, we're always going to have some point in our life where we didn't have those needs met, whether at school or at home or wherever. So, we're all going to end up with some wounds; and healing is just taking into consideration not just the wounds that are happening right now or have happened recently, but also that maybe happened in our childhood. 

So, I don't fall in the 'hating my parents bandwagon', and I don't think it's helpful or supportive in our healing. I think that what's really helpful is to think about it in that they were doing the best that they could with their background, with their knowledge, with their own upbringing, with their own support, and with their own resources.

And I believe that to be true with everybody that I've met. I feel like if you look at their parents or their parents or their parents and you keep going back and back and back, which is why a lot of times people call this generational healing…it is getting a little bit better. 

They did do a little bit better than the generation before them. Not always – but often, this is the truth. And it's looking back at where they came from and understanding them, can help us kind of come to terms with like, 'Yeah, maybe wasn't a great childhood…maybe there was a lot of things that were really hard and really harmful and that I'm really wounded from.' 

And that can also coexist with like, they were actually doing their best; that was actually all that they knew and that was all that they could do at that time. 

And the reason that I support that version of the story of-- I mean, we can think about it any way we want to think about it – but when I think about it that way; it helps me to feel calm, to feel connected, to feel empathetic, to feel loving, to feel compassionate…and those are like the best energies for me. 

Like when I show up in that energy, I like how I show up and I like how I respond to the people in my life. And so, that has been a helpful way for me to think about it. 

I remember in one of Brené Brown's books, she talks about wholehearted living. And when she did all of these, like she was-- I don't know if it was like an experiment or something, but she was like asking a bunch of people about their lives. 

The theme that rang true with the people who seemed to live a more wholehearted life – where they really enjoyed their life and they seemed to kind of enjoy their relationships and have a healthier emotional and mental life – the theme that she saw that ran through that was that all of them believed that people were doing their best. 

And I know this is kind of hard to comprehend because we might know people really intimately and be like, 'No, but I know that they could be doing better'…or maybe, "I could be doing better"…or whatever. 

But believing that people are doing their best with-- Even just like, if you think of toddlers, like with their mood and with how much sleep they got and with their development and all of that…we understand like, "Okay, that's why a toddler is a toddler." 

But imagine if we thought about that in like adults. Like, so they've had this kind of development, they've had this kind of a day, they have this kind of a personality style – they had this much food today, this much water and this much whatever…that all is like adding up little tiny bits of a solution to make this chemical reaction that is them and how they are doing. 

And for me, when I believe that that is their best – all of those things combined together – it helps me to show up in the way that I want to in the world. It helps me show up in the way that I feel like is my most aligned self. So, that is how I choose to think about that.


A workshop of questions to help guide this work for you: Light Vs. Dark side

Today, we're going to dig into both the light and the dark; and this is the part that I think is sometimes missing from inner child work, in the way that people talk about it. 

I heard David Bedrick mention this; and I was taking a program through him and he said, "We often just look back at like, what's wrong." Like, what's wrong with us now? What was wrong back then?

We look at all these wounds and all this darkness and all this shadow side stuff, instead of also looking at the light and looking at the goodness and looking at the joy also. And so, we're going to dig into that part first because I think that what he said was so spot-on and what, it really is missing in this work. 

So, if you have like a paper and a pen or a journal of some sort, I would encourage you to get it out or you can come back and listen to this part of the podcast later and do this work later. Maybe you'll remember later tonight when you're getting ready for bed to pull that journal out. 

Speaking of journals, make sure you check out my Mindset Journal for this book because it will be really helpful in doing your own daily practice; and the link there is in the show notes, but you can also go to


The light side

So, what did you love about your childhood? That's the first question. Thinking back on your childhood, what were some happy memories that stuck out? What was important to you? 

It doesn't even have to be something big like some giant trip with your family or some significant event; it can just be something really little. Like maybe you just remember like snuggling with your parents at night or reading a book in the sunlight. 

Just like allow yourself to pause; you can even close your eyes and kind of just go back there and think like, 'What comes up when I think about my childhood?' 

You can give yourself different age frames. Like, what comes up when I think about like zero to five, does anything come up? 

It doesn't even necessarily have to be true. Like you don't have to worry about whether or not the memory is true or not. It's like, what feelings do I remember from age zero to five? What thoughts do I remember having? What things do I remember enjoying? 

And then you can go to like 5 to 10 and then like your teenage years – teen-tween years – and then you can just keep going for as long as you want. But just be thinking about, what were some things that I really loved – some memories that really stuck out that were like, happy memories? 

What did you love to do? What did you love to do as a teenager or as a tween or as a child, as a baby or as a toddler? 

And anything goes; like kind of just ask your brain these questions and it doesn't matter what pops up, just allow yourself to write it down. Like, "I remember wanting this or liking this…or enjoying this," and you're like, 'I don't even really know if that's a memory or not'. That's fine. Just like, we're just going to let it out right now. So, it's just journaling. 

Part of doing things like this kind of the light side of the work is that when we were little we had so much freedom. 

We probably didn't think we had freedom because we probably felt like we were really controlled by other people around us, but we had freedom in that, we didn't have to worry about-- often, we didn't have to worry about being the ones to work or to make the money or to provide the food or the care, physical care. 

A lot of times, we could kind of just do whatever we wanted. And now, I know I am saying that from a place of privilege and that that was the situation in which I was raised in, and not everybody was raised in that kind of a situation. 

But for the most part, there was a lot of freedom in childhood, especially young childhood – like zero to eight. Zero to eight or nine is when our self-concept was really developed. And so, when we talk about Inner Child Healing, we're really talking about those, kind of, earlier years. 

So, I want you to think about that feeling of freedom, that I think that we don't have to be productive; we didn't have to do things for an outcome. There wasn't like a purpose or a result that we were trying to get to. Oftentimes, it was just doing and just being for no reason. 

When I think about that feeling of freedom and those happy memories…obviously, it's not all happy, but we're going to go to the happy part first. 

When I think about that idea of like freedom and not having to have an outcome, I think about riding my bike down the street with the wind going through my hair and the sun on my face; that's something that I remember. I don't even know if specific thing happened in the way that my brain is thinking about it, but I love that feeling and I love remembering that. 

I also loved just being able to hop off to my friend's house whenever I wanted. Just feeling that freedom of like, 'I can just go and do whatever I want.' 

I loved spending time with friends, I loved riding my bike, I loved being in nature; so, I just want you to think about things like that. 

What were some things that I just like loved doing? Like not necessarily because I was good at them or talented or trying to like create a talent, but just like, just for fun…what did I do just for fun? 

I think creation is really important here. So, think about that too. Like, what are some things that I liked to create? 

For my husband right now, I'm going to talk a little bit about his inner healing journey, which maybe I've talked about before here, but he probably doesn't verbalize it in the same way that I would or understand it in the same way that I would. 

But he has done a lot of things over this last year. Like he decided to take a swimming class even though they only offered kids swimming classes, he just joined the teenage class. He decided to take a gymnastics class. He did parkour even though that was also just for teens; he just joined it, anyways. 

He decided to try starting out violin. He's never done violin before – at least not since he was a very, very small child for a short amount of time – so, he doesn't have any previous experience in it, but just for fun. And he practices every day, but not because he's like trying to be an amazing violinist, but because he is like, 'This might be fun, let me try this out.' 

And that's kind of what this part of Inner Child Healing is, is like…what can I try just for fun? What sounds interesting? What sounds exciting to me? What sounds like it might be my passion? 

And it doesn't have to be something that ends up like creating money or value in the world in the way that we would normally think about it. Like you're not going to become like a concert pianist or violinist or whatever, but it's like, what would be fun, anyways? 

So, when I was doing this, I took like a weaving class and a watercolor class; and I started learning some new languages, and I was just like, 'What would be fun, like if I could just choose anything with no outcome or result?' 

One of the examples I think of is like paint night versus just painting. So, you know where you go to those paint nights, and they're like, 'Here is the picture of what we want it to look like with like the moon and some trees…and there's like a wolf howling at the moon and the grass is like this.' 

And there's little changes you can make and little shifts you can make, but pretty much you're trying to get that specific outcome. 

That's more of like a teaching; like it's a fun experience, but they're like teaching you a certain skill so that you can get a certain outcome versus painting where you just like sit out in a field with your paint supplies – I'm not a painter, I don't even know what all the paint supplies are there – but all your paint supplies and you just like go to town. 

You're not going to sell it after. You don't even really know what you want to create. You just allow yourself to enjoy that process, enjoy that journey of painting. You can like throw it away after; and you can do the same thing with so many different things in your life.

But the purpose here is like doing something just to do it, for no other purpose than just to do it. 

What did you love about little you? What were some things you loved about you as a toddler or as a five- to eight-year-old, as a 10- to 15-year-old? What was she/he/they like? How would you describe them? 

And remember here, we're focusing on the light side of it, like the happy memories…like, what did you love about that? 

Like I loved that I was just like kind of giggly and goofy and just cared about having fun. 

And I loved that I was so kind and loving. I remember even when I was little loving to spend time with senior citizens and I had lots of friends that were, you know, 70-plus years old that I would spend time with when I was little and even invite to my birthday parties when I was little. 

So, write down some of those things. What were some things that you loved about you? What you were like when you were little? Some happy memories. 

And also, part of this work is like incorporating these now; like I was talking about my husband and what I had done also is just like, what can we find that we can do right now just for fun – for no other reason but fun and freedom?


The dark side

Okay, now we're going to go into the next part – the little heavier side, the little bit darker side. And we're going to do the same thing. What was heavy about your childhood? 

And you can totally skip this part if this is like too heavy for you, feel into your body if you're feeling like it's like; way too much energy, way too much emotion coming up, then just skip this part. 

What memories stick out that maybe weren't so happy? Was there a lot of yelling in your home? Was there a lot of spanking? Was there a lot of like timeouts or grounding? Was there a lot of arguing in between people – name-calling, swearing, belittling? 

How did it feel to be a little kid? Think of like zero to eight specifically. How did those heavy harder memories feel? Did it feel safe? Did it feel secure? Did it feel hard? Did it feel heavy? Did it feel a little bit out of control sometimes? 

You can write down thoughts, you can write down feelings, you can write down some memories that came to you. 

Once you've done this for a few minutes, I also want you to think about some thought stories that came from that time. And what I might mean by that is like beliefs that we maybe have carried from our childhood. 

People-pleasing, for instance, comes from our childhood; trying to make other people around us comfortable and happy because we feel like it's our responsibility, and because we feel like heavy emotions are a problem – that they're negative, that they're bad. 

So, here's just a couple that might have come from your childhood. Maybe they did, maybe they didn't. You can have some more. You can write down whatever you want, but this just might kind of jog your memory a little bit; 

Children should be seen and not heard, other people's emotions are my responsibility – their thoughts and feelings are mine, it's my fault – anger is not okay, I have to always be good and kind – big emotions like big sadness or big anger aren't even safe to feel, it's unsafe to feel that – only good and happy emotions are okay – I should be small, quiet, polite, little…I'm too much, I'm not enough – something is wrong with who I am or with how I am.

So, just take a few minutes just to journal and to write out some of those things; some of those may be thought stories that have come up from your childhood. 

Those are what we talk about when we talk about wounds; those wounds that have kind of stuck with us from our childhood that maybe we're carrying from our past. And just like any other wound, if we still have the wound and then somebody says something or does something that's directly impacting that wound, it's going to hurt even more. 

So, maybe somebody says something unkind, and it would normally be like hurtful and we would feel that way when they say that, it's going to be like doubly painful or maybe even more because there's already a wound about something there. Does that make sense? 

But if we're able to heal that wound – and over time, heal it more and more and more and more – it's going to be triggered a little bit less. It's going to hurt just a little bit less over time. 


Re-parenting/self-mothering and how we can become the supportive parent that we need, right now

So, this last part is about reparenting or self-mothering. Reparenting, I think is a more common term, but I just love the word 'self-mothering'. It came from Suman from one of the non-fiction books that I read from her and I was like, 'Oh, it just feels so good.' 

Like, what kind of a mother-figure did I need in those times – that were hard and that were heavy and that, oh I felt alone? What did that-- What would that mother figure have looked like? 

So, self-mothering to me is just beautiful; and it's giving little you, that's still inside you right now, what you needed back then – giving you right now what you may be needed back then.


Tools to help facilitate our Inner Child Healing

So, when I'm feeling re-triggered and when I'm feeling a little bit, that strong emotional charge right now, maybe what did I need back then and how can I give it to me? 

So, there's a couple ways that you can do this. I'm going to give you a few tips.

1. Getting a picture of little you

One is just getting a picture of little you. I've heard this from a few people and I think it's a great idea. And just having like a picture of you as like maybe you're right now you're working on toddlerhood or a five-year-old or eight-year-old…you can put a picture of that like behind your computer screen or on your mirror or in your journal, and you can be thinking about her and you can be like feeling into her and feeling into that relationship that you have with her. 

And also, it'll change the way that you speak internally to yourself, because you can ask yourself questions like, how would I speak to her? Would I say this to her? And if I wouldn't, how would I respond to her? And it will really start changing that inner paradigm that we have about how we talk to each other. 


2. Picturing her in your mind

Another way that you can do it is picturing her in your mind. So, maybe some of these heavy harder memories came up for you when we did that second part there, and you can like visualize that a little bit in your mind. 

Maybe you can listen to some soft soothing music or have a pillow that you hold that's squishy or something. You can even bring something from childhood, maybe you have like a childhood blankie or some sort of like object or picture from childhood that you can have with you as you do this. 

But just visualize something that was a little bit harder, a little bit more heavy in your mind. And then you can ask that little version of yourself, like what do you need? 

You can even have a conversation out loud, like you can pretend like you're little me and you're big me. Like what do I want to say? What do I need to be said? And like as the mother version of me, what do I need to give? What do they need from me?


3. Journaling

Another way you can do that is just through journaling; journaling that conversation back and forth to yourself. But the best way that I do – not the best way, but the easiest way I do it is I just think like, what did I need then? 

When I was feeling this way where children should be seen and not heard and like it wasn't my, I wasn't able to have a voice – nobody listened to me or considered my opinion – what was it that I needed then? 

Maybe it was I needed to be validated, to be connected with, to be actually heard where somebody was looking at me in the eyes and listening to me; I can do that to me right now. 

What's happening with me right now? What do I need somebody to hear from me right now? I can hear me. I can validate me right now. That's what self-mothering is. 

What would support and comfort look like back then, and how can I give that to me right now? What would support and comfort look like right now for me? And how can I give that to me? 


Remember that in this podcast I talk all about connection-based parenting. Connection-based parenting is not permissive and it's not authoritarian. 

So, on the one side, we have that really like traditional hardcore style. And on the other side, we have a very permissive – not quite neglectful but like just not really caring style. In the center, what we have is boundaries and love – connection, empathy, support and relationship above all. 

But it's also structured, right? So, we also help our kids find good healthy bedtime routines or what time they go to bed and what time they wake up. Like we're going to put them to bed because we know that that's best because we're the parent. 

We're going to feed them healthy food because we also know that that's good for them. We're going to give them hugs and kisses and love when they're hurting or when they're having a hard time. Maybe we read to them because we also feel like that's important. 

There's boundaries that we have around everything all the time. We have a boundary around when bedtime is or when wake time is or whatever. There's those things that you have regularly.


4. Boundaries

So, I want you just to think about that. It's a focus on love and focus on connection, but there is also boundaries and that could be for you too. So, how could you make like a soft, kind, loving boundary for yourself? 

For me, I actually give myself a bedtime because inner child me might be like, "I just want to stay up late and like watch tv, do whatever I want and just want my own time." 

But boundary me is like, "I know you want that and I know you think that's best, but I know that in the morning, it's not going to feel good…you're going to have a really hard time that next day, so I'm just going to do what's best for us and we're going to go to bed at like 9:30 or 10:00 tonight because that's going to be really helpful." 

And the more that I do that, the more that I get used to that and my body gets used to that. 

That's just one quick example, but like you can instill boundaries for yourself. 

One of the things I loved that Tiffany Roe said, I took a course through her and she said, "Boundaries are not punishing somebody else, boundaries are keeping you physically and emotionally safe." They're not about punishing somebody else, they're about keeping you physically and emotionally safe. 

So, here in this kind of situation or scenario, what is it that my inner child is trying to say or do or wants or whatever? And then, how can I help them by enforcing a boundary from love and compassion and kindness? And how can we be that accepting, loving, nurturing version of parent that we wanted when we were little? 

Now there were maybe even times that your parents did show up in this way, so maybe you do kind of already know how that feels – or maybe somebody else in your life showed up that way for you. So, how would that feel right now? 


How healing your wounds can help the world

So, that is what Inner Child Healing work is. And the reason that it's so important is because that's how we start to heal those triggers and those wounds that we have so that we don't feel as wounded. 

When we walk around hurt and hurting with all these wounds, we're acting from our hurt – we're acting out from the hurt, and that often hurts others and it just perpetuates that hurt. 

There was a quote one time that read "Hurt people, hurt people – but healed people, heal people". So, the more that we choose to intentionally do this work of healing ourselves, the more that we are going to be acting from our healing instead of acting from our hurt; and we're going to be spreading that light and that connection and that love and that empathy to everybody else around us also. 

So, I just encourage you to take on that work and to do it yourself also, whether it's through therapy or coaching or on your own. 

Again, I do have that book that can help guide you through doing things on your own, doing your own mindset practice on your own. But if there were some heavy, hard kind of things that were coming up from childhood, when you think about it, then definitely go and find a therapist in your area. 


My upcoming retreats

So, one last thing I'll say is retreats. Retreats are awesome. They're amazing. They're in-person; energy, there is just like next level. It's like just so good. And this is what the retreats that I put on are all about. 

This is exactly what I wanted in a retreat. I was looking for a retreat in our area and I couldn't find one even in like the-- I looked in a large area that did this, where it was like had coaching and had meditation and had yoga and had like an amazing atmosphere, and it was like focused on this idea of healing. 

Like we're going somewhere kind of like on a trip, like a vacation, but it's like a healing vacation – like a wellness vacation. I found ones that were similar, but it was never everything that I wanted. 

And so, I made everything that I wanted all in one retreat. That's why I call it Rest, Play, Grow because what we need with a healthy relationship with our inner child selves is what our children also need, which is rest and play and growth; rest in our care, rest in that relationship that we have with ourselves, and play where it's just free play. 

Like where it's not as structured – where we just get do whatever we want with no outcome or result and then grow, which is like that emotional development. 

So, in our retreats, it's a time to be taken care of, to have that freedom where somebody else is taking care of everything – where you can just relax and you can rest. 

I, at the beginning of the session was like, "Just so you know, this is a time for you, whatever you need to do – if you literally need to stay in your cabin for three days and just sleep, just believe that that's what you need and that's okay…like you get to do, you get to be in charge of what you want to do." 

So, rest, relaxation, freedom, and that three days to heal your relationship with you. I changed a few things this time; people wanted more coaching – they loved the coaching – it was like everyone's favorite. 

And so, we opened up that a little bit more. So, we're starting a little bit earlier on Day 1 and we're ending a little bit later on Day 3 which will be amazing, and I'm hoping to spend more time in nature because that got kibosh because it was a little bit too cold for us. 

And I think the reason that the learning and the growth is so accelerated is because of the intensity and the focus there. Like, we'll do like a coaching session for like a few hours and then like take a break and then do some yoga and then do some meditation; and then go back into it. 

And so, we get really deep really fast, and we spend a lot of intentional time doing it. So, you can do like what might take 12 or 14 weeks of work in a short amount of time because of the intensity level there also. So, I do not know if it's going to be sold out right now. I'm recording this a few weeks before it gets out. So, maybe it already is – but if not, you can join the interest list for September. 

And I will just keep putting on as many as come available. So, I will just-- If that one sells out, we'll just put on another one again. So, I'm really excited for it because I love doing this work. I feel like this work is so important and no, you do not need to be a mother to be doing this work. You do not have to have any children to do this work and for it to be supportive of you. 

I think everybody could do this work. I would love to do some couples' ones in the future; I just haven't had quite enough interest yet for them. So, if this interests you in like you're listening to this podcast at whatever time in the future and you're like, "This is what I want for me and for my partner", just shoot me a quick message on Instagram or email and I'll just kind of keep a tally going of how many we get there…and if we get enough, then we can put that on as well.
