Two secrets from two people who will make you feel less alone
Vanessa Bohns and Dr. Jessica Zucker share their secrets
Today, I want to start out by thanking my incredible subscribers. You are keeping the lights on here every single day and making it possible for us to have these conversations. They are right from the heart. They are supportive. They are necessary. I just feel so honored to be able to have them and share them. Every time I do, I feel my net of support widen, and it means everything. If you feel like upgrading to the paid subscription, I would be so grateful. Your support helps keep this space advertiser-free, just for us.
This week, I have TWO amazing secrets to share. They are very different, but maybe they will have the same impact on you as they did on me. Maybe they will help you feel less alone.
If I had one goal in life, other than keeping my daughter alive, it would be hard to say, but… it might be just this. I really want people to feel less alone. I want to be someone that makes people feel like they matter. Because they do. You do. If I could do that well in my life, I would feel proud.
I think this is what Vanessa Bohns and Dr. Jessica Zucker do so well. They help us recognize ourselves in the world. We are not alone in our pain.
Vanessa Bohns’ Secret
This secret involves peacocks… vaguely. And it involves a certain sinking feeling that I can relate to. A feeling that says: I don’t belong. Watch it and then let us know… has this ever been you?
Dr. Jessica Zucker’s Secret
Jessica’s secret is super brave, because she’s revealing an aspect of her experience where she’s done the exact thing that she, as a therapist, helps others NOT do: Minimize their pain. Let’s have a listen.
