I wish I could turn this episode into a cloud, throw it in the air and let it rain its wisdom down on the entire universe.
The incredible, resilient Joelle Baehr joins me in this episode and sheds a light on trauma that everyone needs to hear. Trauma isn’t always something huge like child abuse, or a car accident. It also comes in seemingly small, daily doses that we assume disappear once they’re over.
Join us as Joelle tells us how she regained control in her life after significant trauma as a child. How her faith has blessed her with a bulletproof confidence, knowing that she is a child of God. She talks about how that same faith has shown her the way to forgive and says she could hug the people who have hurt her the most. That compassion and forgiveness is the key to healing.
This eloquent, brilliant human runs us through how she learned to forgive, gained the confidence to risk making decisions, how she deals with triggers and why she banned bonding over hatred in her company.
She says there are a million little things you can do to move yourself closer to peace. Just start somewhere. Start by listening to this episode.
