A few months back my dear friend, Jess Lively, launched an incredible podcast centered around adding a little extra intention to your everyday.  It’s been so exciting to watch the show grow over the last few months, and as always with everything this girl does- I couldn’t be more proud. A few weeks back she asked me to share my story around  my struggles with anxiety and how it related to recent life events.  I was admittedly a little nervous, but knew deep down it would be a really good thing for me to do. I find whenever a blogger or online personality I admire really opens up, I gain so much. So in the hopes of helping others, I decided to be brave and share my story. Huge thanks to Jess for having me! You can head to her site to have a listen if you’d like.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! How glorious is this weather? xo

I’m so inspired by you, your strength and your wisdom

  5. Thank you so much for telling your story - it was so familiar, and so comforting! I went through a remarkably similar experience with therapy and anxiety and ultimately ending my long term relationship within the last 6 months, and from that perspective, I so appreciate your willingness to talk about the messy parts, and so eloquently. For me, deciding to go to therapy was amazingly empowering and the right choice in a thousand ways - but regardless of whether or not that’s the right choice for others, it’s so admirable that you’re willing to share your experiences so candidly and gracefully in a public forum where others can benefit from your wisdom.

      Michelle- I’m so glad the podcast was of help! It was certainly intimidating to share that personal information, but the ability to (hopefully) be able to help so many people was what drove me to do it. Really appreciate you taking the time to let me know it was helpful. xx

    Clara, I have a close friend going through a similar process right now. After listening to your story I passed it onto her and the effect was significant. It was like she was hearing about her own feelings while listening to your voice. Thank you for sharing! It was so touching.
    I admire your sense of integrity.
    All the best on your self-discovery journey!

    Clara, thank you for sharing your story; I can relate in so many ways. I literally had chills at some points listening to you describe certain thoughts or feelings that I’ve experienced! While I’m still working out if my relationship can or cannot work, I really appreciated your honesty and willingness to share something so personal to help others like myself feel less alone. Thank you.
