#269 Glennon Doyle: Envy & Jealousy Are Useful Emotions

Glennon Doyle is someone I've wanted to have on the podcast for years, ever since I read her book LOVE WARRIOR (which was an Oprah Book Club selection), as well as her New York Times bestseller CARRY ON, WARRIOR. An activist and thought leader, Glennon is the founder and president of Together Rising, an all-women led nonprofit organisation that has revolutionised grassroots philanthropy – raising over $25 million for women, families, and children in crisis. She lives in Florida with her wife and three children.


In this episode we discuss Glennon's new book "Untamed. Stop pleasing, start living" which has gone on to become a #1 New York Times bestseller and (a Reese's Book Club selection).


For many years, Glennon Doyle denied feeling unhappy in her life and marriage. Then, while speaking at a conference, she looked at a woman across the room (Abby Wambach) and fell instantly in love. the voice she had buried beneath decades of numbing addictions and social conditioning.


Untamed is both an intimate memoir and a galvanising wake-up call. It is the story of how she learned that a responsible mother is not one who gives up who she is for her children, but one who shows them how to fully live. It is also the story of how each of us can unleash our truest, wildest instincts.


We talk about how she got the book out to so many people during lockdown, how to spot our desires beneath the desires, how jealousy is a useful emotion and I ask Glennon about some of my favourite bits in the book and how we can be a little bit braver, and wilder in the lives we live. ENJOY!!!
