“Do you know anyone well versed in leading a conversation about betrayal – giving language to the emotions, and opening up to healing? Bonus points if it’s you.”
That was the invitation to Dr. Tracey O’Connell, who graciously said yes.
She’s an incredible human – deeply insightful, compassionate, and empathetic. Tracey has lived a full & courageous life. She started as a Radiologist and has evolved her skills to include facilitating Dr. Brené Brown’s Daring Way program, leading expressive writing programs, and coaching people on sustainable well-being and positive self-worth. She knows how to lead difficult conversations.
Today’s conversation is about betrayal. It’s a complex topic entangled with strong emotions, and is a deep wound for many of us. We’ll share our stories and do some processing in real time. We’ll also talk about what has helped in the past and what helps us today.
Experiencing complex emotions, such as betrayal, is part of the human experience. The episode is an offering for you to give language to any deep wounds that may be present, and start the journey of healing knowing that you are not alone.
Tracey O’Connell, MD is a self-described “recovering physician” who expanded her career in Radiology to being an educator, speaker, and coach, fostering positive self-worth and sustainable well-being with teens, physicians, and LGBTQ+. She is a certified facilitator of expressive writing and Brené Brown’s shame resilience programs. Her change of direction came after many years of feeling “not enough” as a person, a physician, a parent, or partner. She learned that helping people FEEL better helps them feel BETTER. Owning how we actually feel, how we’d like to feel, how we don’t want to feel, and how others feel, significantly helps sustain our self-worth and well-being.
