Glennon Doyle Melton is the author of the New York Times Bestseller, CARRY ON, WARRIOR, founder of http://www.momastery.com, and creator of http://www.monkeeseemonkeedo.org. Glennon believes that life is equal parts beautiful and brutal, and writes about the "brutiful" she finds in marriage, motherhood, faith, addiction and recovery. Glennon unleashes her wit, courage and irreverence to call us to accept ourselves exactly as we are today, but also incidentally inspires us to live bolder, more meaningful lives for others. Glennon is a speaker and regular contributor to Huffington Post and other publications. CARRY ON, WARRIOR and Glennon's philanthropic work have been featured on The TODAY Show, The Talk, Ladies' Home Journal, Parents Magazine, and American Baby, among other television and print outlets. She lives in Naples, Florida with her family. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

I just got out of the mental hospital, involuntary, and they showed us this video during one of the group therapy sessions, everybody loved it because it is so relatable.

when people ask me how are you i always say good or fine (i dont wanna bother people) when i ask people they always say bad or depressed (and i feel guilty for being happy)

I just watched this TedTalk again..and noticed how telling the truth and sharing it with a live audience is not so easy(major understatement). You Glennon help me and many many others face the day as an honest Love Warrior. Thank you. Thank you so so much!

Today I gave my therapist the title of this TedTalks because 1. Well he's a therapist 2. He was trying to put me on an M1 hold (which only took me 90 minutes for me to free myself from) 3. We've talked about Tedtalks before. I'm not eating, cutting, and angry.

This is a good speech but did she really have to do the cutting motion and say the girl's cuts were like 'pre-sliced ham' like seriously? It's a visual no one needs.

Teresa Hope Miller (1 месяц назад)
Brave courage and strength.I have always felt disconnected.and at the same time I disconnected myself from the toxic family relationship. I have gone through a lot.Society still wants me and my husband to wear a invisibility cloak. But we are here.visual impairments and my having Major Depression Anxiety. I am grateful for my husband and for God.He brought us together. Having disabilities makes you feel isolation.Sometimes I am embracing solitude.But then feel lonely in a room of people. People don't understand my husband and I appreciate our space during the holidays instead of with family. We are content at those times.

"we had to learn about ancient rome and geometry instead of learning how to make friends". I don't mean to be rude and hurtful but come on, atleast take an interest in the world. Life's about learning about the world as well as having relationships. What does she think, all children should go to friend school? Sure it's hard to concentrate on your studies, it always was but you still do it. I think if she focussed more on her school work and career maybe she wouldn't have gotten into these messy addictions/emotionalism.

whenever people say "how are you" i always reply with 'fine', 'ok', or 'good', even when i just got out of a crying session and feel like a spec of dirt among a field of trees and beautiful flowers... i wonder if they wanted to hear the truth or not

This talk was inspiring. I was in a psych hospital after leaving a 26 year abusive marriage. I came out stronger and braver, and also took on the motto of "warrior". Every year passing is a proud one knowing I can handle most things in life having handled many already. Different than being a super hero, I feel a warrior is still being afraid and still being brave, all at the same time. Thank you for speaking, Glennon.

I thought she was going to touch up on the cruel and business oriented nature of mental hospitals, buuuut no. I have been to over a dozen and I have met some of the most annoying, rude, foolish, and egotistical people in there (staff and patients alike). I am definitely not looking forward to revisiting when I have to get observation hours in for my bachelors.

Beautiful. Inspirational. Raw. Thank you.
tumble0weed (3 месяца назад)
beautiful. i relate so much i cried. I used to be so inspired by Ms Brown , i took notes on her speeches more than 5 tims and bought her self help books. I personalized a dog tag to read in text "courage ; to tell your story with your whole heart" five years ago. To me you are equally as wise, if not more so, for really speaking the raw truth that people are afraid to speak of and experience themselves. i am absolutely awakened by your speech. But i too am naturally very very sensitive, and very very prone to shame and hiding. and no i find myself in my room up until three to four am, drinking after work and addicted to a light opiate drug, to try and escape, mostly from the opiate desensitization, but the opiate part developed from hiding from my emotions in the first place. it's just gotten darker for almost three years now and i'm hopeless,i thought i totally lost my youthful, inspired, authentic thinking patterns, i still don't feelt it. But i just found my old dog tag with that text two days ago for the first time, it was broken, and then i heard you read that quote and have a similar situation, and now i wonder if it's a gentle worldly reminder.

I have to go back to work tomorrow after a while in a psychiatric hospital and I'm really scared to go back. Thank you for this talk...it helps.
it’s chase dude (5 месяцев назад)
About 8 months ago I was in a hospital. I thought it helped. About exactly a month later, I was back in the same place. My favorite nurse said “chase !! What are you doing back here in this place?” She was an immigrant of color and she’s one of my role models. Her and I got close and she helped me find my coping skills and my triggers. All it takes is one person to help. One thing. It is now 6 months later and I’m doing great :).

Yesterday I had a breakdown. As a chronicle illness sufferer (which triggers anxiety and a highly sensitive person.) I had to learn to surrender. In that vulnerability I found people were kind and compassionate. Thank you for this beautiful and honest talk. I'm sure it helped so many people out there who are struggling with addiction and mental health issues. This was the most incredible talk. Full of vulnerability and wisdom. Thank you so much.

I wish my experience in a mental hospital was that pleasant- I came here thinking this was going to be about how dehumanizing they are,,, uh. Maybe just in Illinois.
Kathy jo Brown (7 месяцев назад)
Omg, sad, but those who take drugs, drink, and starve themselves should never have a child until there are clean. Those poor babies are born addicted to what the mother was taking.
Vera Zacharopoulos (7 месяцев назад)
It is refreshing to hear someone pointing out a good way of learning to live. Finding your true emotions and feelings, and conveying them honestly is not easy but very rewarding.

I think we’re all born sensitive. We’re taught to hide it and break down our empathy and compassion.
Elisabeth Müller (4 месяца назад)
I agree. And really, really struggle with this. I want sensitive and compassionate to not be eradicated. There would be much less hurting in this world.

i constantly fear about my future. i really want to become a nurse but it just feels overwhelming for me to think about . I'm scared of beeing on my own. has anyone tool's against this fear?
Makenna Nolten (7 месяцев назад)
when i was put in the mental hospital we weren’t allowed to touch other people, we weren’t aloud to talk about why were there with other patients and if we had cuts or scars we were forced to cover them up because they could be triggering to others. :( my experience was way different than how you explained your experience.

About a month ago, I was ill and out of the office for a better part of two weeks. When I came back, I had a lot of clients complaining about the lack of progress on their files. I was honest, I told them I had been ill and I still wasn't 100%. I expected alot of attitude, but they were all really understanding. I still receive emails from clients whose files are resolved and closed, asking how I'm doing. My point is, sometimes we get so caught up in our fear of appearing imperfect that we forget one important thing: no expects us to be perfect. That's a burden we place on ourselves.

Thanks for Glennon for such a not easy but very powerful and honest lifestory. Her words keep on resonating in my head throughtout the day, opening the eyes on how senstitive and vulnerable we people are.
Myra Damayanti (8 месяцев назад)
The way she explained it. The words she chose, the addresses she used to tell what she meant. The way she felt and saw.. and perceived.

Wow, amazing talk. I'm the first to admit that I'm a total mess. I used to try to please everyone so I wore many capes (some had dire consequences). I'm 43, and I've realized that I'm different in the way I think, and finally finding out who I am. I'm sensitive, but I like that quality now that I've accepted it. I'm awkward, talk too much, honest, deep, creative, and funny. God made me this way, and I'm working on embracing it. It's a journey with many hard lessons, but I'm learning...and it's worth it because I'm growing. I pray that each of you find your way, and stay on that path. I was great at pretending/acting, but the weight is too great. See...warned you I babble on....😒
Leila Riches (9 месяцев назад)
That was incredible. I’m so glad you were brave enough to do this talk. I work at a mental hospital and I really should be a patient. You are amazing and worthy :).

Almost every day I hid my feelings and it is super painful and I don’t like being in the darkness. I am only 13 and every day my family are trying to help me to the light 💡

The problem most people have is that they get their self esteem from opinions of others. Real self esteem means, to understand the value that you as an individuelle have. You need to separate yourself from society, church.... and gain an understanding of yourself and your value.
