May is Mental Health Month in the US. This month is a chance for us to continue combating the stigma that keeps far too many silent. It’s a chance for us to tell and to highlight stories of lesser-known challenges. It’s a chance to declare a few statements we believe to be Black and White.
In the second episode of the Black & White Miniseries, host Chad Moses and TWLOHA Editor Becky Ebert explore the statement: “I am not broken. Who I am is whole.” Together, they talk about what it means to practice grace and acceptance when it comes to our present moment and self, and how we can be both hurting and healing.
Becky Ebert has been working as TWLOHA’s Editor for nearly half a decade, which means she’s the energy behind the organization’s blog and podcast. When she isn’t at her computer, you can find her behind the steering wheel of a car en route to a new place to explore, rewatching a Marvel movie, or outside hiking. And throughout all of those things, you’re sure to find her sidekick, a dog named Bucky Barnes, close by.
“[People] do not need to be ‘fixed’ in order to be on the receiving end of grace and love and pride and celebration. And on the flip side, they are not ‘broken’ if they are struggling or experiencing a trying moment.”
This episode of the TWLOHA podcast was hosted by Chad Moses and produced by Rebecca Ebert. Music assistance was provided by James Likeness and Ben Tichenor.
