Let It Be Episode 13: Having it all


Hmm – I am not sure what to say about this episode. It made for uncomfortable listening when I re-visited it yesterday in preparation for writing this post summary about it!

Why uncomfortable? Well I guess the whole problem of trying to ‘have it all’ is a privileged one … and while Brooke and I frequently check our privilege, we’re still not too sure how to navigate/process/manage that with the right level of sensitivity for those who don’t enjoy the same level of privilege we do.

Also, while we cover off why trying to have it all is a fool’s game, I will admit that right at this point in my life, I’m pretty close to ‘having it all’ by most people’s definition. But … a huge amount of outside help is the only thing that allows me to do that. And I’m a little uncomfortable with just how much help I’m able to call on.

So … ugh! Perhaps I am overthinking things here. Listen in and let me know your thoughts/questions! (Have a read of this post first because it’s what triggered this episode.)
