E81: Empathy Is My Jam with Non Wels


After a violent and dysfunctional childhood, Non Wels is harnessing massive amounts of empathy and vulnerability to cope with anxiety, depression, and anorexia. We're talking about what it's like for Non to create safe spaces for others that he did not have access to growing up and why humor and levity are important in the midst of recovery. He's sharing his list of favorite books and podcasts for cultivating empathy as well as some of his go-to self-talk phrases for reminding himself of his worth, love, and enough-ness in the world. Also this week, the agony of grief comparison and a helpful tool from The Grief Recovery Method.
