A friend of mine walked in the other day with a t-shirt that read “It’s fine, I’m fine, everything is fine.” We all thought it was so funny. How often do we say that? It’s fine, I'm fine when everything is NOT fine! Like not at all. When we feel like we are a spiraling, out of control mess yet we wear a mask that says I’m fine, I’m good. A stupid, smiling, fake mask. How much of my life has been spent wearing a mask? It is exhausting wearing a mask!
May is Mental Health Month. But let’s get real. We don’t need a ‘theme” month to tell us that we are struggling.
I’m opening up about some of my struggles and some tips that help me cope. As usual, it’s real talk about real life today, on the Healthy Harmony podcast.
I’ve gotten so skilled at putting on a mask. I know what to do and what to say. It’s simply a habit to smile and put on a good face and act like everything is okay. Wearing a mask is NOT healthy. Not dealing with your issues is NOT healthy. I’ve learned the hard way. It all catches up with you.
One of the reasons that I’m so passionate about helping others is because I know what it feels like. To be struggling inside and saying I’m fine on the outside. I know what it feels like to be in a downward spiral, to be alone in a dark place, to feel hopeless. I know what it feels like to be living in captivity. In this podcast, I discuss the top tips that helped me remove the mask so I could move forward!
We all want to be happy and fulfilled! It's time to remove the mask so you can move forward. This podcast will help you do just that!

If you can never get enough true crime... Congratulations, you’ve found your people.
We’re at our most vulnerable when we go to our doctors. We trust the person at the other end of that scalpel. We trust the hospital. We trust the system. Christopher Duntsch was a neurosurgeon who radiated confidence. He claimed he was the best in Dallas. If you had back pain, and had tried everything else, Dr. Duntsch could give you the spine surgery that would take your pain away. But soon his patients started to experience complications, and the system failed to protect them. Which begs the question: who - or what - is that system meant to protect? From Wondery, the network behind the hit podcast Dirty John, DR. DEATH is a story about a charming surgeon, 33 patients and a spineless system. Reported and hosted by Laura Beil.
This is what the news should sound like. The biggest stories of our time, told by the best journalists in the world. Hosted by Michael Barbaro. Twenty minutes a day, five days a week, ready by 6 a.m.
