Today's guest on The Your Shining Self Podcast is Michelle Garrett.
We jump right into chatting with an opening from Michelle's chapter in the Get Past Your Sh*t book:
I woke up disoriented, angry, and disappointed. Once again, I had failed at something that I had put so much time and effort into. I had planned out the details for almost a year, and while I thought I had a solid plan, I failed at yet another thing. That seemed to be the story of much of my adult life…
From hearing (or reading) just that, it may seem like just a “simple” failure like failing at something you tried at work or as an entrepreneur, etc. But this was so much more than that…
Instead, what Michelle is talking about here is her failed suicide attempt!
Please listen in to hear Michelle share her story about this and how she's been rebuilding her life (and business) since this happened back in 2019.
If you are struggling with depression and suicidal thoughts/feelings and need help immediately, please call the National Suicide Hotline: 800-273-8255
Resources to Check Out:
- Book: Get Past Your Sh*T
(Michelle & I are co-authors in the book!)
- Book: Scary Close by Donald Miller (we did not specifically mention this book in the episode, but it's an excellent read & it talks all about dropping the act and becoming ourselves/worrying less about impressing people, etc. I highly recommend the book; it gave me lots to think about and was also a bit on the life-changing side!)
Connect with Michelle:
Michelle D. Garrett wants women to embrace their inner diva and become driven, inspiring, victorious and called to action in their day-to-day lives. A wife, mom, and mental health advocate she teaches women in business how to find the “right for them” balance between family, life, and work.
In 2019, Michelle had a mental health crisis that completely shifted how she embraced life and business. As she rebuilds her business, her goal is to share her journey with depression and anxiety with others so they do not take the path she did.
