SHOW DESCRIPTION: In this podcast I talk about identity and its relationship to mental health, and how our environment shapes and impacts our individuality. I decided to do this episode in response to the many messages and emails I get from people who are struggling with low self-esteem—people who feel that their identity has been crushed or stolen by the challenges they have faced.
