In this episode, I talk with Jon Lupin who you might know as The Poetry Bandit. Jon is a published poet and author who has written three beautiful books, My Sober Moon, You Only Love Me When I’m Suffering, and Encyclopedia of a Broken Heart.

I think one of the most powerful things we can do is to share our stories (both trials and triumphs) with each other. This is exactly what Jon does. After having to face some very big mountains, including alcoholism, OCD (or Pure OT), heartbreak, and many of life’s other unexpected challenges, Jon deeply understands what it means to walk through the fire.

This also means that he has a plethora of wisdom to share which we dive deep into in this episode. A few examples of what we talk about include the importance of community and reaching out for help, conquering resentment, self-acceptance, the power of creative work, the importance of vulnerability, self-worth, and much, much more.

Thanks for tuning in and I hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I did!
