Why Being Authentic to Yourself and Your Life Means Everything!
“We all need love but not to the detriment to ourselves.” – Regina Brancato-Dunderdale
In this episode, I am joined by Regina Brancato-Dunderdale who is a Coach, NLP Master Practitioner, Master Hypnotherapist, and Time Line Therapy Practitioner. She specializes in helping people overcome fear, anxiety, stress, and impostor syndrome. She comes with a lot of life experiences having been born in Brazil and lived in Angola and the UK.
Regina shares her story of growing up in a very male-dominated society in Brazil, where women were expected to take a back seat and obey what male figures said. However, that never sat well with her and she decided to take her own path of being an independent woman. This led her to educate herself to a level that was then seen as unusual- and as being masculine.
She made the decision to live her life the way she saw as being authentic to who she is, rather than what was expected of her by society, friends, and family members. This means she chooses not to get married at a certain age and not to have children, but instead to create a successful career for herself.
We also speak about how being a strong, intelligent, and independent woman is still perceived as a masculine trait. And how this kind of programming in society means that it can be harder for women to find a relationship with a man. Or cause power imbalances that are not there when it’s the opposite situation.
This is a very honest, and perhaps controversial conversation about authenticity, self-love, outdated cultural norms, and female and masculine power imbalances.
