Author, poet, and advocate Lindsey Frazier joins Chelsea 7:45 minutes in to dive deeper into her memoir Oh Love, Come Close.
We hit the bottom and bring up all the gold, like living with high-functioning depression, the stigma surrounding antidepressants and how taking medication isn’t about surrendering to our weakness but rather choosing endurance, suicidal ideation and the desire to escape our inescapable madness, combating the shame voices by hitting them with self-belief, leading by the mantra that "vulnerability breeds vulnerability" in parenting, the consequences of meeting our partner when we are in total trauma and the all too relatable fantasy that marriage will save us from our core wound, coming face to face with our sexuality, a partner’s indefinitely, and the stories raging within, the healing power of a couple breaking into their own humanness right in front of each other’s eyes, the redemptive moment when you see something bigger than oneself at play, stepping back and letting God move us, and coming to the end of ourselves and realizing that is the best place we could be.
