Join cartoonist Lucy Bellwood as she delves into her struggles with the critical voice in her head and her complex relationship with her father in this episode of Mental Illness Happy Hour with Paul Gilmartin.
Every time we show our bellies to another person, there is, I think, an art to sharing the challenges that we're going through, and it's not that that's self-obsession.
In this episode of Mental Illness Happy Hour, cartoonist Lucy Bellwood opens up about her struggles with the critical voice in her head and her complex relationship with her father. She shares how she has learned to confront the lies her inner critic tells her about herself and the importance of sharing our struggles with others. Bellwood also discusses the benefits of a daily creative practice, the challenges of writing a book, and the role of spirituality in mental health.
With host Paul Gilmartin, she touches on the impact of childhood trauma and the need for self-acceptance. Through it all, Bellwood's vulnerability and authenticity inspire and empower listeners to confront their own inner critic and embrace their true selves.
