Robin Farr (www.FarewellStranger.com @farewellstrangr) is one of those people who you meet and instantly find a connection. She has guest posted twice on this blog. Once in April just after taking a leave of absense from work, where she admits to having postpartum depression. Then in June, a follow up about her ongoing journey of recovery. In August Robin and I met in person at BlogHer, and last month she gave a talk at her local TedX Mile Zero event in Canada.
The title of this talk is “Beauty in the Breakdown: The Benefits of Brutal Honesty.” She is incredibly courageous in her brutal honesty about her own personal experience and her family’s experience through postpartum depression. If you have 15 minutes to spare, I urge you to watch. This is a powerful powerful message. And I’m quite certain many of you will relate and will realize we are none of us alone.
