About the show
The theme of the show is self love and creating a space for others to share their successes and challenges in the lifelong journey that is self love. The more we show vulnerability the more we realize we are not alone in the struggles we face.
The host Jillian Gillis, will be joined with new guests weekly telling their story of their unique self-love journey. The first episode revolves around Jillian and her rare eye condition, that leaves her with 10% of her eye sight, and the challenges she’s had to overcome.
No one is perfect, we all make mistakes and we all face challenges in life. If we can have open and light conversations about “uncomfortable” things, they can become more normalized.
Join me by listening to self-love is blind podcast, Lets break the stigmas surrounding mental health, disabilities, the LGBTQ+ community, body positivity, lets talk about it!
