Episode details

Suzanne LaGrande interviews speaker, midlife coach and writer Janna Lopez, author of Me, My Selfie, and Eye: A midlife conversation about lost identity, grief and seeing who you are. In this episode of Disobedient Femmes, Lopez shares an intimate portrait of midlife identity loss, which she characterizes not as a crisis, but as a necessary journey for self discovery. According to Lopez, part of the midlife journey involves letting go of old identities, and the grief that accompanies that loss in a culture that doesn't make room for grief. She also talks about how transitioning through one's identity loss is made more difficult by social media's constant influence.
