I show my feelings always and what I have found is that people are uncomfortable, think I need mental help, I have been acused of being emotionally unstable etc.... I beleive that tears are just tears, they don't hurt and sometimes even help. why are people who have feelings and show them considered not normal?why do others feel so uncomfortable when someone cries? why don't we try to comfort strangers when they cry?why are sensitive people perceived as weak?

Praise God! This women is the living word, the truth Jesus Christ has showed her his light and now she stands before us all today, strong, confident and beautiful. All of her sins and enemies, "caps" all washed away with the blood of Jesus Christ. I can relate to this women although she has definitely seen more and worse than me but we were both changed in the light of Christ and we both were able to take off our "caps". Amazing life

Автор Gibby Vogel ( назад)
This video is impactful because Glennon has her own life story about her binging and purging and she is able to speak for this disorder. Glennon has a very unique way to explain who she was before she began binging and purging. She states that she began binging and purging when she was 8 years old. She continued until she was 18 years old and she asked for help. It amazed me that her lecture is all of her story and she learned all of these lessons from her admittance to the mental hospital. Many people think that mental hospitals are not useful for others and that they cannot teach lifelong lessons. Glennon proves that lessons can be taught from a mental hospital and that they are life changing. She explains that everyone needs to stop pretending and just be themselves. It is amazing to me that she is willing to speak about her past and what she has learned from the mental hospital. I enjoy that she speaks about how people need to talk about their feelings and that people are too afraid to show them. I believe that if everyone was honest in our society that it would be very different overall. Glennon shows that mental hospitals do help some patients and that they are able to function in later life.

"Life is beautiful, and life is brutal. Life is brutiful."

Truer words were never spoken.

Автор SeinoPie Gracia ( назад)
When I was young, I used to express myself without a care. I think at the time, I wan't aware of how "strange" it was to speak what you felt. I just said what I thought, and I was hated so much back in middle school. I gradually became afraid of speaking my mind, to the point of I just stopped talking about me altogether.

Now if someone asks me how I feel, I would just say "Well, I don't really know. How about you?". I'm trying to change, but it's hard when your defense becomes a habit. That's why this talk, and other inspirational talks as well, helps me so much.

Автор Mandy West Hanks ( назад)
Glennon, what a beautiful talk. You were so brave to share your experiences. I read the following verses today and it reminded me of your words. Romans 13:12-14 "The night is far spent, the day is at hand; let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light. Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering, and wantoness, not in strife and envying. But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof. (King James version of the Holy Bible)

One of my favourite TED talks ever.
Suppressing feelings for too long leads to numbness and apathy. Far far better to feel the discomfort than feel nothing.

Автор Madie Teltow ( назад)
This shows not only to be open to mental patients but to all patients. Every patient is going through something different and need to be shown that that is okay. Also, the hospital is there to help you. In mental hospitals, patients shouldn't be scared to talk or share their story. The staff is there to help you and be with you through that difficult time or for whenever you need them. I like that her hospital had everyone hold hands and no one was left alone. This is how it should be out of the hospital too. Everyone needs to stop being so judgmental and take a step back and realize that everyone is going through something different. Glennon shares that it will get worse before it gets better. All those feelings will become present but you get through it and everyone will become better. Yes life is really hard, but you can do those hard things. Sometimes its okay to say today is a bad day and today I'm not fine but the next day is a new day. You can go everyday hiding and feeling low or you can go out into the light and live your life to the fullest.

This is super true. Being in and out of hospitals. They cover everything and anything. Not like the movies.. but generally they say no touching.

I'm 59 years old and it's taken all this time for me to finally accept that I have problems I've found that it's important for me to sit with the truth, accept it, not run away because of the pain. There is indeed pain, but I will learn from it and get well and take steps forward when I accept and live in this very moment, even when it hurts.

Автор Joanna Badillo ( назад)
Great job!
I wish it was more social acceptable to say "I'm not okay". So many people judge those who aren't afraid to share their feeling, and it ends up making everyone hid under those capes even more. We should be allowed to say "i'm not okay" and that be okay.

Mental illness is being caused by radio transmitted signals. SDR transmissions. Its widespread, but hardly known outside of Canada, where the law is different. organisations have used the technology for some time now in propaganda campaigns and sadly the ongoing use by governments and organisations across countries is leading to widespread mental disorders. You can try to reduce this by using radio jammers or specialised cloth.

I think you could have left the "mental hospital" part of it out. Addicts are not for mental hospitals. They don't interact respectfully with psychotic people. Your philosophy is great for you, but it's not stopping anyone terrorized by demonic voices. Most people in mental hospitals have a poor long-term prognosis, many and most will not be married, have kids or live on their own. Most people with repetitive involuntary psychiatric internment will have to go on disability. They'll often have very, if any, friends and be rejected by what family they had. This is not what you're talking. These just aren't your people. I understand the title gets clicks, but people on court ordered anti-psychotics don't give TED talks about accepting themselves. That's a cognitive therapy strategy. Major mental illnesses have pharmacological solutions; all the talk and diet and supplements come in a very distant second. The probate courts make sure of this. Your problems are legitimate to you and you've triumphed, but you not fighting a legitimate major genetic based mental health issue. The title could have been anything about recognizing your problems and a method of dealing with them you discovered them. In mental hospitals people scream at demons, they throw chairs. They are injected with medication against their will. They are strapped to beds. Alcohol is horrible but in different ways. Treatment programs are different. Some of these places have manicures and spas. That's not a mental hospital.

School . 'A 200 year old mental wrecking system. How ironic that there are so much alternative ways to educate the young.. But we keep clinging to a'jungle model'. where a few strong/popular rule..(for a few years). Giving the rest of the kids neuroses for life. When school is over these same 'strong ones' end up in jail, Or become CEO's .Still we wonder why our society is such a mess, and why people never change...

I wanted to watch your presentation, unfortunately I wasn't allowed. Instead I was given high anxiety and an invisible person telling me that you don't deserve to be on stage. This really hurts me because we are a lot alike. This sort of thing continues to happen to me (and I'm sure others). I feel that there are people pretending to be God, commanding my brain to feel like you mentioned at the beginning of your lecture, (unfortunately like I said, I wasn't given permission to watch the rest of it). I'm praying this is going to stop happening. I've never felt anything like this. I have never been attached to technology before. I'm hoping this will change. I'm so tired and ill from this.

God bless

I was put in a eating disorder recovery facility for 3 months of my life. When the doctor told my mother that it was really bad and that I needed to be put in a 'safer place', I cried for hours. I wanted to jump of the stair case and break my neck. My mum simply sat down in the corridor and said ' how do you want your funeral to be organised?'. We sat together talking about my funeral and who I was going to invite, then my mum said that 'you better get to it then'. It was weird because we weren't laughing or crying, it was very serious. I didn't do it, and I couldn't do it. I look back on the situation every single time I am confronted with something that makes me feel sad and vulnerable, because it makes me laugh. That sounded psychotic but it just seems funny to me now. I live my life now with dark humour as the centre of it because if you can't learn to laugh at death then you will end up scared and worried of not living it properly. My eating disorder taught me so many lessons but the biggest lesson was just laugh at life because you only live a very short time so why not laugh your way through it😄

Yep, thoroughly enjoyed this video and can relate to it 100%. I got fed up with 'identify' after 11 years in AA. My feelings are what guide me too and I don't live from my head anymore. My head was & still can be, where my problem lies. I still suffer from anxiety without medication around some alcoholics (long story but involves a traumatic experience) but generally, I feel good about myself. I do enjoy a simple, quiet life with the help of medication and I no longer lie about being fine, unless it's the kind of fine which is 'fucked up, insecure, neurotic & emotional'.
