Every negative experience a person has been through in life has left a scar, a bruise or a wound that feels as if it will never heal. Often leaving you feel empty, unfulfilled or incomplete. Life is like a messy puzzle, you know what the overall, beautiful, picture is supposed to look like but not knowing how the pieces all go together. Every piece matters in order to create that overall masterpiece; to see that beautiful picture complete. This podcast was created to share stories of others in similar situations, to normalize the world of mental health, to talk about the things we do not vocalize, to educate and bring awareness. Your story matters and the pieces to your puzzle matter. More importantly you matter and you are worth all the happiness and joy life has to offer.

I Am Worthy!
Worthy Pieces just became my new favorite podcast. There were some great gems of knowledge in just the first episode, including the idea that you heal emotions by sitting with and understanding them, rather than by logic, and the call to action for normalizing open and honest discussions around emotions is a great reminder and a mission I can/need to get behind.
Needless to say, I’m pretty excited for any future episodes.
Great new podcast
Second episode on emotions really gave me some good things to think about regarding how I handle things and some good suggestions on what to do. Looking forward to the next one.
