A free-spirited misfit and abstract artist with tons of creative ideas, Danielle has always had a lot to share, but was too afraid to speak up - until now. A "professional student," she holds a Master's degree in Journalism and several random certifications she collected over the past decade in order to feel good enough. But enough was never enough. In this podcast, she candidly discusses her struggles with perfectionism, recovery from eating disorders, severe exercise addiction and people-pleasing behaviors. The podcast includes conversations about being awkward, living with anxiety and big emotions, the sense of urgency that pervades our society and the pressure to "fit in." This podcast will hopefully include many other topics as well. Potential trigger warnings: some discussion of mental/emotional health, anxiety/depression and disordered eating/self-harm behaviors. If in doubt, consult your licensed health professional or therapist before listening. This podcast is not meant to replace or provide any form of therapy / personal advice. It is solely based upon the speaker's experience and non-professional opinions about the topics. Please take responsibility for your own recovery and do what it takes for you to feel safe. You're worth it.
