Every time we face an external challenge, we reveal our strengths we didn't know we possessed. We find people to help us, learn from the failures, and even find ways to overcome them. But, what if these challenges are something that we need to fight on our own? 

We are in a constant battle within ourselves. Every day we deal with tasks or other things that can make us question our knowledge or skills. But when this leads us to confusion, conflicts, and frustrations - we can see ourselves stuck in an important decision.

An inner conflict happens when you feel as if you’re of two minds. You may hear inner voices saying things like “I want to keep this relationship but part of me wants to let go” or “I want to take this job opportunity but part of me wants to be with my family instead”  and that’s when inner conflict comes.

Working with your inner parts allows you to unleash your most beautiful elements. Listen to Episode 19 as Shasheen Shah, the author of The Kid and the King joins us to share her knowledge and identify what these “parts” mean and how you can work with them to build a better relationship with yourself. Stay tuned!
