Its O Kpod S3 Ep 18 Elise Loehnen

Should you stop being “good”? 

According to the 7 deadly sins, a “good person” needs no rest, has no appetite, has no desires, puts themselves last, and is never upset. 

NYT best-selling author Elise Loehnen says we spend most of our energy denying the needs and instincts that make us human – like our needs for love, connection, success, and rest. 

It’s hard to be “ok” when you’ve spent a lifetime denying your own needs.
