If last week’s episode was a free counselling session for Kelly, this week is definitely one for Brooke.
In this episode the ladies look closely at our Inner Mean Girl: Why do we have them? Why are they so freaking mean? Why are they inclined to damage and harm and stop us from trying new things, recognising contentment and finding acceptance? And despite her nastiness, does she actually have a role to play?
Brooke talks about her personal experience battling her vicious inner mean girl, and Kelly looks at the different ways she can infiltrate our lives – even for naturally confident people. For example, do you have an Achievement Junkie, a Comparison Queen, a Doing Addict, a Good Girl, a Head Tripper, a Worrywart, an Invincible Super Woman or an Overly Optimistic, Partying Cheerleader running around inside your brain?
Not content to simply wallow, Kelly and Brooke walk through the ways they’ve learnt to co-exist with their Inner Mean Girl, and ways they’ve learnt to outright defeat her. Kelly even has a special name for hers, which is kind of awesome.
Big shoutouts to both Emily Gordon and Christine Arylo in this episode too.
