Nuggets of Wisdom from Vangile
- So one of the untangling that I had to do was this belief that came up for me really strongly was that as a woman, and as a black woman in particular, I could not be in charge of my own financial destiny.
- I wanted to always prove that I was good enough so I was overdoing, I was showing up exhausted, and part of my anger was coming from the fact that why is nobody seeing my awesomeness right? And nobody could see my awesomeness because I couldn't see my awesomeness.
- I felt alone because I was so scared that one day people will know the true me, and they will not love me. And so deep down, I was also showing up as I am unlovable. That was one of the hardest beliefs that I had to work through.
- And my parting words of wisdom is just the magic really is in the healing. That's literally my company's tagline is heal for the sake of healing and everything else starts to fall into place. That's where the magic really starts to happen.
