Episode 147: You Are Not Alone – There Are Others Just Like You

One of the most powerful lessons you can learn in recovery is that you are not alone. It was recently reinforced after receiving a Postsecret email. Frank’s story of how he created Postsecret and why is incredibly moving. That’s why episode 147 of the Fragmented to Whole Podcast is about understanding that you are not alone! 

In this episode of the Fragmented to Whole Podcast, I’m sharing the importance of community for healing and actionable steps you can take right now to feel less isolated. 

Some of the talking points I go over in this episode include:

  • The story of how Postsecret started, and how much shame so many of us feel even though we share so many common secrets and shameful moments.
  • How humans are like pack animals; we thrive in community, and why we need to lean into that community to feel less isolated.
  • How one of the greatest gifts from recovery is that we aren’t doing it alone – We are addictive and compulsive in isolation and we heal in community.

There are entire communities of people just like you – even when you feel like it, you’re not alone. So be sure to tune in to all the episodes to receive tons of practical tips on living a more whole life and to hear even more about the points outlined above.

What is Fragmented to Whole: Life Lessons from 12 Step Recovery?

This is the podcast “Fragmented to Whole: Life Lessons from 12 Step Recovery.” It will help people who want to heal to move from fragmented to whole.

Hi, I’m Barb! I share my experience, strength and hope from 12 step recovery in each episode. They’re all 20 minutes or less. Unlike most recovery podcasts where you hear a person’s whole story, in this one each episode is about a specific topic.

There are many life lessons from 12 step recovery that are applicable to those in and outside of recovery. This podcast brings some of those lessons to the airwaves, including such topics as learning acceptance, recognizing and overcoming victim mentality and establishing healthy boundaries.
