Growing up, Amy wasn’t sure where she belonged. She questioned her sexuality but also wanted to be faithful to God, to do and be all the things she “should” do and be. Amy felt she was different but chose to look the other way, finding comfort in the sense of belonging alcohol gave her. Alcohol helped her feel normal and socialize. But there was always that feeling something wasn’t right. She was losing herself, trying to “pray the gay away” and drinking more and more. It wasn’t until Amy began paying attention to her thoughts and beliefs about alcohol that she was able to begin the journey of finding herself, of moving past all the “shoulds” and loving herself for who she is.
Are you looking to connect with like-minded people? Sometimes maybe you feel like you have all this information from doing This Naked Mind or The Alcohol Experiment, but you’re living in a world where people don’t speak your language.
That is why I created The Exchange. The Exchange from This Naked Mind is an online community where we meet face to face, live with video calls multiple times a week with people from all over the world just to connect and have somewhere that you are seen, you are heard, and you feel less alone. A place where you can really give back and get the support you need. If this sounds great to you, check it out at thisnakedmind.com/exchange.
And as always, rate, review, and subscribe to this podcast, as it truly helps the message reach somebody who might need to hear it today.
