How Were You Praised As A Child? Unpacking Our Perspective and Leaning into a Soul Refresh

Season 3 | Episode 8
40m | Mar 5, 2024

In today's episode of the Affirmations for Black Girls Podcast, join host Tyra The Creative as we embark on a journey of self-discovery and reflection. With March's theme of "A Soul Refresh," we're diving into emotional and mental spring cleaning by exploring our childhoods and embracing discomfort as a pathway to learning. Through thought-provoking questions, we'll gain a better understanding of our perspective and inner workings.

This week’s Affirmation is “I am an open book, ready to explore the pages of my soul with an open heart and open mind.”


  1. How were you praised as a child?
  2. What am I putting off that feels important? Why am I avoiding it?
  3. When was the last time I truly enjoyed my own company? What was I doing?
  4. What’s something that was said to me in my childhood that I carry to this day? What would I say to my younger self now?
  5. What’s become more important to me recently than ever before?
  6. What have I always accepted as true that turned out to be false?

Key Takeaways:

Childhood Praise: Reflecting on how we were praised as children can provide insights into our self-worth and perspectives on success.

Embracing Discomfort: By leaning into discomfort and exploring uncomfortable topics, such as our childhood experiences, we can foster personal growth and self-awareness.

Self-Reflection as a Daily Practice: Self-reflection should be an ongoing journey, allowing us to understand our motivations, navigate life's challenges, and cultivate clarity and purpose.
