On Dear Gabby we pick people completely at random—we don’t have any information about where they are, who they are, what their questions might be. What's really interesting about this episode is that on this particular recording day, each of these women came on to speak on behalf of the same topic—unspoken shame. This was no accident. The Universe will always hook us up with what we need. The guests on this episode are brave souls who came forward to voice unspoken shame surrounding trauma, sexual abuse and mental illness. I hope this episode serves you greatly. I know that it has deeply served me.
On this episode you’ll hear:
Permission to give voice to the unspoken shame that the world has told us not to face.
Open, honest and raw personal stories from three women sharing their experiences with trauma, sexual assault and mental illness.
My own experience with childhood trauma, post-traumatic stress disorder and postpartum depression.
Guidance to help break the stigma surrounding mental illness.
A prayer for self-compassion and releasing shame.
