In this episode, I talk with Jihan Madyun, LCSW; owner of the The Fulfillment Project in Washington DC. In this episode, Jihan and I discuss how one’s own lack of fulfillment within themselves can be caused by past traumas and cause them to try and seek out acceptance in others. Jihan describes ways in which we can learn to fulfill our own needs and desires by engaging in regular self-care activities including being mindful and still.
