Glennon unleashes her wit, courage and irreverence to call us to accept ourselves exactly as we are today, but also incidentally inspires us to live bolder, more meaningful lives for others. Glennon is a speaker and regular contributor to Huffington Post and other publications.

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 too was overly sensitive when I was a kid. Mostly due to unstable home I
started to worry and think too much and developed insecurities. This led me
to homosexuality and I became gay- for years trying to find a comfort and
acceptance by being "special" to another man. Years of wrong living took
their toll and it all became too much. And just as this woman said-
starting to talk about all of it and coming out of the closet for me was
the beginning of the healing process. However, the visits to the
psychiatrist showed me that the only one who can really help me was God.
And He did. I was healed of homosexuality, fears and anxieties by Jesus
And she said it well: our feelings are our guides. I learned that they show
me where I am in my head. They are not final and they don't prove anything
-gay feelings do NOT prove someone is gay. They simply point out to what
the person thinks about most of the time. And that can be changed.
Our God is awesome- His LOVE heals.

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.

If any of haters you had an ounce of the courage this women has shown in
revealing herself to us your friends and relatives would suddenly balk in
confusion of who you are. To the haters ... you should be ashamed of
yourselves. How dare you. How dare you.

Insensitive people who don't have an intimate relationship with pain have
no place speaking here. Yes. We hurt. We hurt so bad, and we learn to
survive. If you haven't hurt, and you think you have an opinion here,
kindly leave. This is another manifestation of the high school she was
talking about, and its a nasty, dirty, hurtful place for us. This girl
right here is brave. Her bravery should be applauded.

If you don't agree, and you want to be witty, or critique sensitivity, or
feel good about yourself, direct your nastiness towards me. Not those who
are crippled by it.

I wish I could stand next to her right now and look at you in the face. I
wish I could give you shame for the pain you cause.

To those that hurt ...

That healing language of acceptance in the mental hospital she was speaking
about. That is the real cure. Find it. Find a way to love yourself. That is
the light at the end of the tunnel. It takes a lot of courage to get there.
It takes so much more pain to get there, it really does. But we need you.
The world needs your sensitivity. you are worth it.

This life is brutal. But it is also beautiful. She said so much so well.
Thank you Glennon.

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?

Автор Kristen Swanner (1 месяц)
Thank you for deciding to let go of your confined state of reference and
let the world in. I think the hardest part of letting people back "in" is
fearing that you'll lose all control of your self (identity), but how can
we ever change if any part of ourselves still identifies with the past?
Whenever we shed our past selves and trust that the brain will do its job
(storing, retrieving, connecting) instinctively, then our minds are free to
take in all that is around us- we are present for all of life's great
opportunities! Congratulations on your success.

Автор VitruvianVision (1 месяц)
What I find peculiar is that for some reason, certain coping mechanisms are
socially accepted, and some aren't. Everyone is pretending, and that is the
problem. Wearing a mask is, and not accepting people for what they are-
whether they are strong, or weak, shy or outgoing. Which really depends on
where you are living at given point in time. Addictions, as are other
difficulties people develop in coping, are a DIRECT result of one's
environment. For the most part- especially talking childhood experiences.
After that, it also becomes one's own responsibility how to cope with
people.. hard to do for some- especially when the personality base has been
weakened whilst growing up. I couldn't comment on her issues and whether
she is improving or not, I simply do not know her personally. Funny how
some people here seem to deem themselves experienced enough to judge her,
after such a short lecture.

Please watch this touching video by Glennon Doyle Melton talking about her
struggles with bulimia, alcoholism, drug addiction, and living "in the
dark". She speaks bravely of showing up and facing the discomfort of being
and living in this messy, beautiful and brutal world; to teach and
participate in the idea that it is okay to NOT be okay all the time. Amen
to that, I say. AMEN! http://youtu.be/NHHPNMIK-fY

Really inspiring. The people she speaks of, the shy, sensitive, awkward,
peripheral, can be great observers of life. Poets, songwriters, and
artists come to mind--they feel so deeply but they can really pay the price
sometimes--the capes can start piling on. I laughed when she said we're
trained to answer, "I'm fine thanks, and you?", when asked how we're
doing". I was choosing chocolates from a big assortment and the man said,
"Is everything okay?", and I thought, "Oh how nice to be asked", and I
thought I'll just be honest and I said, "Oh well I'm a bit tired and work
has been really hectic...", and he gave me a funny look and said, "I mean
the chocolates, are they all okay, no allergies?". We both laughed.

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.
