Becky talks about the different times in her life when people have tried and succeeded in silencing her because they thought she was too much and she believed them.
Becky and Dana discuss the difference between saying that they don't care about something instead of saying it’s being important to them.
Diana shares that when she doesn’t care about something, she works on reframing it as not being a priority to her. She also shares the story of high diving while in the Bahamas.
Becky describes being told that she was too much as being “subtle and insidious.” It was never said aloud; it was implied in the way people talked to her and about her.
When people label women as “too much,” it means they’re threatened by our ideas. Becky and Diana talk about how living by different norms threatens other people's ideas of how things are supposed to be.
Diana talks about the book, Disrupt Her, by Miki Agrawal.
They both talk about how they are disruptors in life and how they can both fall into playing it small.
When we finally accept who we are in life, it doesn’t matter what other people think. It also allows us to embrace being bigger and bolder.
It’s important to surround yourself with people who accept your muchness because it allows you to be yourself.
Finally, they talk about the freedom inherent in their bigness and how it enables them to fail fast, learn, and move forward.
