Let Me Overthink About... Forgiveness
"Forgiveness isn't condoning what happened or making excuses for the person who caused pain, or righting their wrong. This isn't about them, it's about you. It's making a choice to release yourself from the stuff you're holding on to. When you release, you feel so liberated, and so much lighter." – Nina Purewal and Kate Petriw

Doug and his wife, Jill, split their time between Florida and PEI. We caught Doug at his cottage on PEI, so please excuse the few glitchy audio moments;)
A Series of Topics That Occupy My Anxious Mind.
I'm Sam Madore, an overthinker extraordinaire.✨
As host of this podcast – and as someone who has lived with anxiety and depression most of my life – I want to normalize the topics and conversations that an overthinking mind can bring to light.
Because I'm sure I can't be alone in this;)
