LEWIS HOWES: Welcome back, everyone, to the School of Greatness. Very excited about our guest. We have the inspiring Dr. Becky in the house. Good to see you. Welcome.

DR. BECKY KENNEDY: Thanks for having me.

And if we can start to do our own healing journey and start to reflect that, okay, maybe they just didn’t have the tools, they didn’t know any better. Hopefully they had the best intentions. And we can try to have some compassion for our parents as adults. Then there’s some more integration and healing that I think allows us for us as we grow up, right?
