Description

Work in Progress with Sophia Bush features frank, funny, personal, professional, and sometimes even political conversations with people who inspire Sophia about how they’ve gotten to where they are, and where they think they’re still going. These discussions stem from her "aha" moment of realizing you are allowed to be both a masterpiece and a work in progress, simultaneously.

I am loving this. I have never heard codependency described in the way you do here. I have never thought I was but what you talk about is me to a tea! I did not realize that me giving my time to my friends and family the way I do is not necessarily healthy. For the first time I am looking at the way i give my time from a different perspective. Thank you for having this conversation!

I hear you about anxiety being a necessary feeling. However, extreme anxiety to the point of paranoia is too much and people like myself need medication to manage it or life becomes unbearable. Also, for people with extreme anxiety like myself, marijuana makes me extremely paranoid and 20x more anxious. Just a little tidbit for you to consider. Psychology is not black and white.
