In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

I've checked in on her blogging and other online activities. She's standing
on this stage lying to everyone. Of course she may not realize it, but she
is still cowering in a self imposed bubble of pretend. She has no problem
talking about herself and her ideas all day long, but will not accept
criticism in any form if she has the ability to deny it. The only
difference is that she has exchanged praise for booze.

Автор Randy Kreill (6 месяцев)
More people should be OK with talking about their mental health challenges.
Humor sure helps! Go Glennon.

Life can be tough, especially in our screwy culture of emphasis on taking
way more than we need. We are lied to frequently from a very early age.
Cutting through the bullshit is vital. Taking more than we need is viewed
by healthy cooperative cultures as a mental illness. That describes about
all of us. What I've been proving to myself is that mental and physical
health are very connected. Food affects these. Feelings, good and not so
good, are a gift ... telling us if we are on the right path, or not. What
we need to learn about wellness can come from the 3rd world poor, such as
the Tarahumara/Raramuri Indians. I listened and now suggest others kick off
their shoes, run, run very very far, live simply and only consume animal
based foods. We are running herbivores. Embrace that and watch what
happens. I've done dozens of amateur videos on these topics, such as "sh*t
a barefoot vegan endurance runner says". If more people would be what they
are, less would need hospitals and meds IMO.

Reviewing the comments I see how harshly judgemental people are. I know in
face to face life, only sociopaths would be that brutal in words or
judgements. And I think of the internet as a place where people feel free
to let their "negative" voices out into the public realm - what in buddhism
is called the "monkeymind." What is interesting is ... this venting
judgementalism and comparative criticism is exactly the type of thinking
that causes addictive behavior in people. People just want to numb their
thoughts - the thoughts that destroy their spirits and confidence in
People "hate" on each other on the internet because the words they say
trigger uncomfortable emotions/thoughts in them. And there are no serious
repercussions to verbally attacking strangers on the internet ... but there
are serious repercussions for using the same sort of attack thoughts
against yourself and others in your life. The question is ... how much of
this self-generated negativity is poisoning our own lives?

She is still recovering, still sick and still very childish.
She has absolutely nothing to teach.
Recovered alcoholics don;t go around promoting themselves like this.

yeah its all "ok" and life is hard and life is brutal and blah...but this
is really soapy, to cheesy and way to over-pathos-dramatic and cry me a
river with a lot of self pity ... go talk with a mirror for a god sake..

Автор Julius Fawcett (7 месяцев)
Wonderful effort, what a great expression of the healing that comes from
caring and sharing. She is so right, we don't have to be superman and we
can let go of thought patterns that act as barriers to the happiness that
could be flowing through our lives. Let go of fear, anger, jealousy, blame,
guilt, tension, resentment, irritation, frustration, criticism and let
peace, love and harmony flow more easily.

It is disgusting that some of you are trying to criticize and condemn her
for telling her story. You obviously don't know how hard it is to deal with
addiction and then to tell the whole world about it. Even if you don't
understand and can not empathize, you can still sympathize buttholes.

I love what she said about how we're taught to lie about the fact that
we're "fine" all the time. It's crazy how we think that's what people want
to hear because we don't want to bother them with their problems, but it's
the complete opposite that's true.

I sort of have the opposite problem, I have bouts of apathy, and when I
come out of that I begin to fear that that apathy will become a norm in my
life and I will no longer care about anything. Recently, my only wish is
for me to have a passion for something, anything, rather than simply going
from one day to the next for the simple reason that it is expected of me.

Автор Warren Fritze (7 месяцев)
I see a lot of truth in her. See it in my clients, too. I work in the

how much pain they are in.

Автор Erika Burian (4 месяца)
awesome talk :D

Автор Bridget Kirwan (1 год)
This amazing woman is sharing herself and defrocking her sensitivities,
sharing her story, and basically asking that we all join in, as the human
beings we are, to be our authentic selves out in this messy world where the
sun shines.

Some of her points:

1. Making the unknown known. (honest with our feelings)
2. Sitting with the deep pains and joys of being human and not running for
an exit is being good at being a human being.
3. The above point brings: Peace, Dignity, Friendships
4. Forgive each other for being human too!
5. We are all sensitive underneath our super hero protective capes that we
have draped around ourselves - creating addictions, which tell the truth of
how we really are going!
6. I'm sensitive. I accept this is how I was made and there must be other
sensitive people just like me.
7. The ONE thing that she has changed: I feel my feelings and I share

Автор Viktor VonDoom (8 месяцев)
Wish she didn't suck her teeth every few seconds..
Also wish there was a general point besides "Life is hard, I couldn't
handle it, but I got over it"

Автор Sam Nehme (8 месяцев)
If you don`t understand the purpose of her presenting or appreciate the
courage it took for her to get up and speak then you have never dealt with
similar issues. Don`t be afraid to open your heart and mind to the world.
As we grow up we close off because it is easier and that is what we are
taught to do but some people simply cannot.

how you put it.

this was really inspirational. brought tears to my eyes.

Автор Dalvinder Basi (6 месяцев)
I understood most of that quite well. I also have had and still have many
of these feelings myself. Most of all it would be nice for others to join
the journey that Glennon and i have undertaken. Namely just to feel human
with all its pain and pleasure. To be honest to ourselves and to others. To
be accepting of the weaknesses associated with the human condition.
