The two deepest desires of every human heart are to love simply and to live fully. So why do our relationships remain so complicated, and why do our lives sometimes ring so hollow? Because neither love nor life can be truly embraced until you, and only you, have embraced your truest, worthiest self. In his book, LOVEABLE, clinical psychologist and popular blogger, Kelly Flanagan explored how trusting our worthiness forms the foundation upon which we find true belonging and discover our purpose in life. LOVEABLE has been described as “a handbook for how to be human.” Now, in this podcast, Kelly delivers the tools for living fully into who you are and why you are here. Each weekly episode includes an inspirational reading, a presentation of practices for the week, and a conversation with Kelly’s readers about both. Inspirational. Practical. Conversational. It’s like a year’s worth of free therapy. Except it’s much more. It’s how to become whole. You can visit Kelly's blog at https://drkellyflanagan.com.

    The Conclusion to the Loveable Podcast [Loveable 054]

    “We’ve been taught to believe life is only meaningful if we’re getting from here to there—doing a lot, becoming more important, accruing more stuff, feeling safer, and increasing our comfort. Even the good work of redeeming the world can become its own straight line, as we single-handedly try to move the world from Point A…

    Week 52: Reflecting Upon the Unfolding of Your Truest Self [Loveable 053]

    “Your true self folded in upon itself never ceases to be your truest you. Your soul is bigger and more beautiful and more mysterious than you can possible imagine. It has been folded in upon itself by people and by experience and by life. But it need not remain that way.” One of the most…

    Week 51: How All This Passion, Pain, and Courage Add Up to Joy [Loveable 052]

    “Fear about the future becomes bravery in the present becomes joy in hindsight. Joy is knowing you can be scared and still ride through life. Joy is being terrified and trusting you’ll survive it. Joy is believing in yourself enough to believe you are brave.” Joy and happiness are not the same thing. In fact, they may…

    Week 50: The Courage to Fail [Loveable 051]

    “Courage is ignoring the jeers and feeling the fears. Courage is returning to the edge of our comfort zone and choosing the place where our fear dwells, because we are worthy of another chance at life. Regardless of what the critics say.” People who experience success aren’t better at being successful; they are better at…

    Week 49: What to Do When Our Feelings Are Lying to Us [Loveable 050]

    “Life is a gift in terrifying disguise, and we are here to open it, until we find the still-quiet place in the center of it, where fear no longer decides.” In Episode 50 of The Loveable Podcast, we talk about fear. It is an important emotion. It causes us to buckle our seatbelts, run out of burning buildings,…

    Week 48: The Good Life vs. the Redemptive Life [Loveable 049]

    Week 48: The Good Life vs. the Redemptive Life [Loveable 049]

    The so-called good life is a hollow promise. It’s empty of the things we desire most, like passion, purpose, and peace. It bores us. Makes us restless. We crave something else. We ultimately crave a redemptive life. In Episode 49 of The Loveable Podcast, we shift our focus slightly to something that will clarify not what our passion…

Helping Me See Through Pain

Recently found this podcast and blog with Dr. Kelly Flanagan and I have found it so helpful. My new practice is to get up early and listen to 1 podcast and then start the day feeling much stronger, and less frustrated! I'll be ordering his book Loveable and doing the worksheets as well. A BIG THANK YOU TO Dr. Kelly Flanagan for doing this work.

Gift this to yourself!

I read Lovable as a member of the street team - reading and reviewing the book before it was sold in stores. It is life changing. Dr. Flanagan's truth and vulnernablity guides you through a process to study yoursel in a very gentle manner. I purchased copies of this book and gifted it to several friends. Now I am listening to Dr. Flanagan's free podcast which is a year long study of this book. The podcast is amazing. Dr. Flanagan's openness and wisdom in each weekly podcast allows me to continue the journey of self-study unafraid*. *Unafraid - able to face the fear and shame we have layer by layer built inside of ourself while seeing the amber of our true lovable self getting brighter and brave enough to want to shine.
