Episode 15: Sisyphus: The Myth + Vincenzo || Living with Regrets

It’s been an interesting experience watching two K-Dramas (that are currently airing) at the same time. I never do that ๐Ÿ˜‚ so it was super cool to find that two episodes I watched on the same night from two different K-Dramas talked about the same thing – REGRET. I had to talk about regret (and remorse) because it’s what I see the most in folks I with. Having regrets in life based on what you said and did can plague you. It’s what I tend to hear often in families as well. In fact, it’s the most common phrase I tend to hear in therapy: “I really wish I hadn’t…..I keep thinking I should have ……” These are all based on regret which tends to turn into remorse.

How can we best deal with regret so we aren’t living with remorse? What have you said or done recently that you are regretting? How are you managing it so it doesn’t dictate your decisions and control your future in a way that is unhealthy? Ponder these questions as you watch this latest episode. ๐Ÿง

Episode 13: Reply 1988 || Be a Student of Your Parents

Kids (aka students), it’s your turn to study your parent (s) because it goes both ways right? You want them to understand you, so you need to learn about who they are. ๐Ÿง It’s all about enriching conversations in the family for greater connection and cohesion. Sure, you may think your parents “don’t get it” or are “aren’t on the same page” as you, but knowing more about them could help you better navigate family conflict and strife so you can feel heard and validated. ๐Ÿ™

How well do you know your parents on a scale of 1 to 10?

10 = “Know them like the back of my hand!”

1 = “No clue who they are.”

Episode 12: Reply 1988 || Be a Student of Your Student

Parents, hear me out. It’s important to “study” your kids to understand what makes them tick and what floats their boat so you can connect with them. Reason being, the more connected they feel with you, the more you’ll get them to listen to what you want or need them to do. ๐Ÿ˜‚.

Check out this sequence in Reply 1988 to understand why it’s good, parents, for you to be a “student of your student.”

How well have you been studying your kids to understand them better? ๐Ÿค“

Episode 11: Start-Up + Itaewon Class + The King || Girl Bosses in 2020 K-Dramas

Happy Women’s History Month and upcoming International Women’s Day (IWD) on March 8! This year’s IWD theme is โ€œWomen in Leadership: Achieving an equal future in a COVID-19 world.โ€ To honor the meaning behind IWD which is all about showcasing women’s achievements in society and contributions around the world, I’d like to celebrate the women leaders AKA “girl bosses” we have seen in some 2020 K-Dramas! ๐Ÿ˜Ž

I think it’s a big deal that we’ve gotten to see some examples of strong female characters the last year in #kdramasโ€‹ considering the norms of Asian culture, don’t you? I know there are many great female characters that exude leadership and strength, but I focused on my favs of 2020! Who’s your favorite K-Drama “girl boss?”
