Self love is a topic that I have been overthinking a lot more in the past year. Loving yourself can be especially tough when you are fighting against a mental illness that wants to do the exact opposite. My anxiety and my depression work against me every day in this work of falling in love with myself, but I'm up for the challenge.
(By the way, please ignore the lawn mower in the background for about a minute at the twenty-six minute mark. I'm trying hard not to overthink about it;)
"Self-love means that I have a relationship with myself built on trust and loyalty…I’ll disappoint everyone else before I’ll disappoint myself." – Glennon Doyle
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;)
