In the first episode of the VulnerABILITY Podcast, a podcast centered on being honest, transparent, and real, host Marisa Donnelly and guest Abe Lopez discuss the ideas of love (and what that really means), identity, being patient, and embracing the unknowns.

‘Patience is a virtue.’ Most people have heard that quote before, but what does it mean? In this episode, Marisa starts by opening up about the unknowns. She shares that she’s currently struggling with not knowing what to do in both her personal and professional lives, and falling into comparison. This is something we all can relate to!

Both Marisa and Abe talk about social media and the unconscious desire to measure oneself against others. Although this can be a motivating practice, it’s often negative. It seems as if everyone else has it ‘figured out,’ but in reality, we’re all learning. And being patient is the key in all of our journeys!

Marisa and Abe talk about love, about trusting your instinct, and about waiting for the right time. The biggest takeaway from this podcast: you can’t control everything. There is so much value in being patient, in slowing down, and in letting life happen sometimes. Truthfully things will all fall into place in time.
