“I think a lot of us still have blind spots, we don’t see how we have been really conditioned because it is so deep and subconscious, it’s still in the shadow.” (8:27)
“Even if the rules give us these benefits, the cost is much higher. When you seek approval, you give up your own desires and even the possibility to know what you desire. We may end up belonging to a tribe, but we are banished from ourselves. We lose connection with our most authentic selves. When you seek safety and comfort, you give up growth and expansion.” (20:20)
“When we feel like it is best to follow our mind and intellect over our body and intuition, the tendency to choose logic over intuition, the strategy for approval is being smart and credible. So the ways we align with the patriarchy are the ways we might align with Western medicine and evidence-based research. This is great, but we know it’s not the whole picture.” (29:06)
“If I just go with the flow and avoid being difficult, there won’t be any problems and everybody will just get along. It looks like the tendency to seek and keep harmony, instead of embracing the conflict needed for change. The main strategy for approval is being easy to get along with, pleasant, likable. But the powers you give up when you follow the good girl myth of harmony are your voice, and truth.” (35:01)
“The good girl myths affect all contexts of our life, not just one context. I really try to show how the rules look like in relationships, at work, how logic looks like and how it plays out when you are trying to make a work decision, how it plays out when you are thinking about what partner you want to marry. So it really does work across different spheres.” (40:24)
