Life is hard. We all know this. But for many, it can be tough to admit, or even believe, it.

As Stacy Pederson, motivational keystone speaker and member of the Elevate Speaker Series, shares in this episode, overcoming stress and anxiety requires honest communication and acceptance. While relationships have their place, to receive the help you need, you need to come to terms with reality first. Once you have acknowledged the hardship, only then can you take the baby steps necessary to conquer the challenge at hand.

Even if you lose your marriage, home, health, or job, by confessing, “It’s okay to not be okay” and choosing to connect with the right people, you can overcome adversity with the positive attitude you crave.
