Before I started Mind love, i couldn’t have predicted the amount of healing I would find through sharing my story.

On one hand people might say, well that seems painful why would you want to dig that up, but on the other, it frees up space.

Our guest today specializes in helping you unpack your shit to get it on paper and the moment I heard her story I knew I wanted her on the show.

Her name is Anna David. She’s a New York Times bestselling author and her life reflects that of someone with a story to tell.

She’s gone through some really low lows, that I can relate to, but she’s managed to find creative outlets of self expression to pull herself out of that, whether it’s writing, speaking or podcasting and now she helps other people access their dark so they can find their light—through writing, storytelling, podcasting or whatever public means of self expression you find most appealing.

Today we will learn:

  1. Tips to living with addiction triggers
  2. How embracing labels could actually be empowering
  3. How to detox your social circle
