Many of us struggle to make life feel worthwhile, meaningful, and peaceful. We’re confronted in our relationships, careers, faith, and the health of our body, mind, and emotions. We often have questions in our minds that go unanswered, and sometimes, we don’t even want the answers. We just want to have a really unfiltered discussion, let it all out, be truly heard so we can process our emotions. We want to talk about our deepest passions and secret longings, share our unfulfilled dreams and big goals, and inquire into the mysteries of life. If you’re in that place right now, we invite you to join Whitney here on This Might Get Uncomfortable.
