Straight Talk for a Curvy World
About This Show
Straight Talk for a Curvy World is a podcast about life after 40 and the challenges women face. Host Ann Peck talks to women (and a few men) some you’ve never heard of - and some you have… about the things we don’t talk about… the things we keep inside because we feel ashamed, confused or fear we’ll be judged. These conversations cover the messy stuff, like grief, death, divorce & hormones. Losing the money, losing our minds, losing ourselves… we talk about sex, dating and starting over… the second half of life, building a business, pursuing a passion and following a dream… and we talk about love.

I look forward to seeing you there and discussing this important topic. Emotional Pain in the Physical Form During Christine’s uncertainty about staying in her marriage, she began having chest pains, and suffered from shingles. At the time, she was unaware of the physical connection to her emotional distress. She recommends going to a doctor, but also talking with a trusted friend about what ails you. It may uncover that you have been trying to mold yourself into a form someone else wants you to be, instead of who you really are. Practice some self-love, and do some internal work, to help clear your mind. Why Can’t We Live the Life We Want to Live? Many women spend a lot of time comparing themselves to other women. We see a photo or read a story, and we think the woman we are looking at has everything together. We wonder what is wrong with us, and why we don’t have that certain something.
