045: Depression, Feeling Worthy & Finding Hope with Meaghan Gallant
< 1 day ago
Hello Couragemakers and welcome to episode 45 of Couragemakers! This week I’m talking to the wonderfully honest Meaghan Gallant. Meaghan is a holistic health coach, freelance writer, and virtual assistant. She is the creator behind Invoking Joy, an anti-thesis to the diet industry because she believes feeling GREAT doesn't have to be hard and it certainly doesn't have anything to do with the number on the scale. When she's not in front of a screen you can find her on a yoga mat, scribbling in her planner or with her nose stuck in a book. In this episode, we’re talking really openly, honestly and vulnerably about depression and struggling with your mental health. Meaghan shares her journey of training to be a health coach while struggling with depression, how she manages her depression and the blame we put on ourselves when we try something new and it doesn’t work. We talk about how the online world is great at showing the good things, and the glittery part of self improving, but not so great at showing failure that doesn’t come with a happy ending, or the messy and complicated parts of working through your shit. We dive into how euphoric happiness isn't sustainable, how trusting her intuition has led Meaghan to a life with more possibilities that works for her and Meaghan shares fantastic advice for anyone listening to struggles with their mental health and finding their light. This episode is a great reminder that it’s not your obligation to shrink or fit into other people’s boxes, and that there really is hope even if you don’t feel it right now. I’ve been excited to put this episode out for a while now because it’s one of the most honest and hopeful discussions about depression that I have seen online. Meaghan’s honesty is really refreshing, and I don’t think there will be a dry eye in the house by the end of the episode. As someone who struggles with depression, I find this episode so hopeful, so healing and it’s a great reminder that you’re not alone and you can find your own light.
