Lauren Martin is the writer behind the popular Instagram account, Words of Women, which is dedicated to the growth and development of women. She also wrote a book called The Book of Moods in which she embraces vulnerability and provides observations into her own path to emotional wellness.
We talk about finding the right therapist, the validity of feelings, and finding ways to deal with changing moods. We also talk about yearning for more honesty around the loss of female friendships and the power of putting ourselves out there even if it brings discomfort.
Therapy highlight: Understanding emotions as data and more discussion on the grief of friendship loss.
