Be brave. Be authentic. Share your truth. The funny thing is, this message is exactly what I encourage others to do as a therapist and podcast host. But when I’m faced with the reality of saying what I really want to say, I clam up and get fearful of the outcome. In the words of author, Cheryl Strayed, 'Bravery is acknowledging your fear and doing it anyway.'
