It’s time to stop numbing our pain and the journey starts here … with this introduction to The Point of Pain podcast.
While I will be highlighting the journeys and stories of others on this show, I wanted to share my story with you first.
Alok shares their struggle with self-acceptance and how they reclaimed their authenticity despite being surrounded by intolerance, how pain brings us together, recognizing that life is pain, why we need to realize that everyone is suffering, and so much more!
Ruthie talks about the horrifying accident that left her the hospital for a month, the moment years later when she developed chronic pain that doctors couldn’t diagnose, how she went from not being able to get out of bed to finding joy and beauty in her life.
In this episode, we really get into Ingrid’s story and talk a lot about grief, which is a huge part of her story. She really lets us know that a lot of the beauty that has come into her life has been through dealing with tremendous loss and a lot of challenges that she has been so vulnerable about throughout the years.
In this episode, we talk a lot about Komal’s professional and health journeys and the flow of business. I really hope this episode inspires you to look at your business trajectory a little differently.
By breaking down the “skinny” beauty ideal and exposing its origins, agenda, and harmful effect it is having on society, Katie empowers people to choose their health over the beauty ideal implemented by the media, and provides the tools needed to create lasting change.
Jennifer and I talk about the fact we’re both not going to having children and what that process has been like, what happens when people can’t show up for you on your health journey.
