Depression, Anxiety and Panic – Let’s Get Real

sad face in the happy facesI define myself as a humorous motivational speaker. That means I have to bring my "Happiest A+ Game" to the party and give people the tools necessary to bring THEIR "Happiest A+ Game" to the party.  But as someone who used to have very severe depression, anxiety and panic attacks I know that it's not always possible to do that.  If you suffer from these sorts of mental illnesses or know someone who does, you might want to take a look at this.

  1. Yes, we motivational speakers could be a accused of being too simplified in our approach to getting out of a rut.  Thanks for reminding me to be more sensitive to people who actually need a bit more help.  No slimey green looks from me!

  2. Thank you, Linda. This is such a great reminder for motivational speakers to consider that their advice is not possible for some people in the audience. I once asked a therapist how I could help my audience to know if their problems require a little more loving care, and the therapist said that when simple every day tasks  can't be done, that it's time to get help.  Thank you, Linda, for reminding me to be sensitive to these people too.

  3. A very sobering and important point you make Linda!  As a motivational speaker on health and wellness I have to be extra careful about my enthusiasm and love of exercising and eating healthy because I am well aware that 1/2 of my audiences want to just shoot me dead!  Of course your subject is much more critical.  Thank you for the reminder!

  4. Truth! This motivational speaker wants you to know that I'm so happy you hung in there and got the help you needed so that you can continue to inspire so many. Always appreciate a reminder to be compassionate and non-judgemental.
