surviving the sandwich generation
In today’s show, Tina shares what living in the sandwich generation looks like for she and her family.
Tina talks about the joys and trials of raising a child with Sensory Processing Disorder and some of the mistakes she’s made along that journey. She also tells us what it looked like to walk through forgiving herself when she wasn’t at her best and the freedom she finally found in it.
We discuss what it was like for her to grow up as a Chinese woman in America and the journey that brought her back around to learning how much her mother truly loved her.
Though Tina’s story has some really hard places, it also has so much redemption and beauty and I can’t wait to share it with you!
