Guests: Esther Fleece,
Esther Fleece was a pretender, ignoring her past, putting on a cheerful face day after day, and seeking validation and significance in her work, connections and ability to hold everything together. But maintaining the act was exhausting, and eventually she had to face the reality of her circumstances and unchecked grief. She made a conscious decision to end the pretending and instead learn to lament and move forward in authenticity. Her new book, No More Faking Fine, tells the full story.
