Glennon Doyle on Telling Loved Ones Hard Truths
December 10, 2020
The holidays can be a challenging time for many. One of the reasons for the extra anxiety we may feel is due to the kinds of conversations and sometimes, conflict, that can come up when we are sharing a meal with loved ones. Your aunt, grandpa, parent or cousin says something about politics, about race, about any marginalized community and boom, your blood is boiling. You love your family, but seriously, how can these people be related to you. Okay, you want to be respectful but also hold your ground. You don’t know how to respond. Well, our guest today, Glennon Doyle, knows a thing or two about difficult truth telling, about creating understanding and about moving people along in their own evolution of love and justice for all.
On this podcast we learn a lot about history, about civil rights issues and about how we can use the law to move the needle. On this episode, we are going to spend time talking about how we can best share that knowledge with others, the folks who may not be as tuned into these conversations.
Glennon is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Untamed, Love Warrior and Carry On, Warrior. She is also the founder and president of Together Rising, a non-profit organization that has raised over $25 million for women, families, and children in crisis. She joins us today to break down how we can better love and lead people to care about the rights and liberties of those most marginalized.
