The self-help and personal development industries have lied to us! They tell us to "fix ourselves", "get over ourselves"... and so we get on the hamster wheel of self improvement and are still left asking, "What's wrong with me?"
In this episode I'm chatting with Dr Valerie Rein, whose new book Patriarchy Stress Disorder has raced to the best seller list. She has worked with hundreds of high-achieving women and discovered that they issues they all struggle with are not just personal (the 'what's wrong with me') - they're rooted in the ancestral and collective trauma experienced by women in the patriarchal world for millennia.
