Fearless Rebelle Radio with Summer Innanen - Body Image, Body Positivity, Self-Help, Feminism
I am interviewing Zakiya Gayle, who helps bring women’s inner fire back to life, about how we’ve been conditioned to manipulate ourselves in way that caters to the male gaze and how to break free of that to honor our individuality and what she calls your "dragon fire." Specifically:
- Why the way we feel about ourselves is malleable and how we have the power to change it to embody self-love, 
- How we’re trained to see beauty and femininity through the male gaze and how this detaches us from our individuality, 
- How the pitch of our voice can be used to re-shape our inner dialogue and narrative,
- How to change the negative feedback loop of self-doubt to channel your inner fire, 
- What you can do to become more embodied with your inner power,
- Why it’s not narcissistic or selfish to think that you are amazing and how others benefit,
Plus, so much more!

I’m chatting with Dr. Kristin Neff, author of Self-Compassion. We talk about what it means to give ourselves compassion, how to differentiate between self-compassion and self-indulgence and tactics you can use in moments of need. Specifically:
- What it means to be compassionate towards ourselves and the three steps to implement compassionate self-talk, 
- Why it’s so much easier to offer other people compassion than ourselves and how to change that, 
- How to honor and give space to negative feelings in order to cultivate more peace of mind, 
- The relationship between self-care and self-compassion and what to do if you feel guilty taking time for yourself,
- How to differentiate between self-indulgence and self-compassion,
- Tools you can use in the moment, especially when you feel you’ve hit rock bottom, to offer compassion to yourself,

To celebrate the 100th episode of Fearless Rebelle Radio, I’ve crowd-sourced your best lessons on fat acceptance, body positivity, life without dieting, health at every size, self-worth and more. The idea to crowd-source lessons from you came from Ellen Orr, who helps to manage my Facebook community and I ran with it because I think we are eachother’s greatest teachers and you have been some of my best teachers. The work we’re doing here is radical and not exactly mainstream, so the best way for us to learn and grow is to share what we know with eachother. I’m always so blown away by the brilliant, thoughtful and compassionate words of support and advice that are given in my Facebook community. And I’m so excited to share your words with the world here. We cover your best lessons on fat acceptance, body positivity, diet culture, life without diets, health at every size, our worth, age positivity, self-care, motherhood, feminism and words of encouragement for you.
