Thank you, Bob! This will be a difficult journey but we are so excited for what's coming. We've learned in the last few weeks of recording that this is as much for listeners as it is for ourselves.

Thanks for coming along with us!

Warning: long comment! lol Ladies, I have goosebumps right now. In just this first episode alone, I have related on so many levels. Maybe not all of it, but no one's story is exactly the same. What matters is we talk about it and you both are incredibly brave and passionate about shedding a light on the nitty gritty details that surround mental health. I have experienced that "perfection" anxiety and not messing up my entire life and dwelling on guilt of past decisions. I have had that fear stop me in my tracks but also have it push me forward and it's not an easy line to walk. Even though 2020 was a shit show, I can truly say it gave me a chance to sit down with myself and listen to my mind, heart and soul. I made a huge step in taking a road trip, by myself, to visit my family in Virginia. I've been on a plane, but 2.5 days in a car by myself was a unique and soul searching experience that I desperately needed. That trip alone has taught me to have faith in myself and trust my instincts and stop basing my actions on what other people may or may not expect of me. Was I anxious? Hell yeah! But was it one of the best trips of my life.... totally. It taught me that I set my own boundaries which I've never done. Also gotta give credit to my therapist for helping me learn to set those boundaries for myself because they are valid! I'm always open minded and willing to take others opinions in to account, which isn't bad, but I learned how to disagree. I have to say I'm probably not the extremely passive person I once knew, but as you said, it's not a straight line. There will be ups and downs. Growth will always be forward. I look forward to every new episode you ladies will put out there! You have a devoted listener. Thanks for shedding light in a dark place. You both are amazing human beings.

Hi Sabrina!

First of all, thank you so much for listening! You have no idea how much it means to us to hear that we're making a difference already. Having a community is so important for people struggling with mental health and that's 100% why we're doing this. If you ever need someone to talk to, whether here or offline, Lauren and I are always available.

Second, thank you for your candor on your comment! Again, it means so much to us that people are feeling empowered to speak up after we put ourselves out there. You are strong and amazing and beautiful, inside and out, and your anxieties do not define you - which I know is easier for someone to say from the outside than it is to believe on the inside - but it sounds like you're headed down a path that allows you freedom from it. I'm so proud of you for venturing out despite your reservations!

Last but not least, if you have any topics you'd like to hear about, let us know! We get the bubble guts trying to pick topics each week and nothing would ease our anxiety more than having someone else tell us what they need to hear.

Thanks for joining us on this journey!
