Pain to Passion Live

Gabi Ruth

Let's face it - life can really hurt sometimes!! And that hurt can make it feel hard to heal, move forward, and dream again. But here's the thing - over and over again, we find that the people who are doing extraordinary things with their lives have been through hard stuff. And time and time again we see that it's those very things that were meant to destroy them that turned into the catalyst for the purpose in their lives. Their pain turned into their passion. God has a way of restoring our brokenness and turning it into strength and purpose. This podcast is all about that redemption. read less

S2E25: Why Do You Struggle to Trust Yourself? - Gabi Ruth
In this episode, I discuss the struggle of making decisions and trusting oneself. I share personal experiences and insights, highlighting the importance of regaining your voice and learning to trust your intuition. I offer practical tips for making small decisions, reflecting on how your personal story have impacted your ability to make decisions, and talk about how you can give yourself disconfirming experiences that allow you to believe something new. I encourage listeners to have faith in the process, to invest in their healing, and to show up for their own well-being and growth.

S2E21: Waking up to Your Own Life - Michelle Hsu
In this episode, I had the pleasure of speaking with the incredible Michelle Hsu, who truly embodies the transformation from pain to passion. Michelle is an abundance mindset coach, motivational speaker, mother of two, and a strong mental health advocate. She opened up about her personal journey, which has led her to a deep commitment to child and youth advocacy. Michelle shared how her challenging childhood, marked by difficult family dynamics and abusive experiences, ignited her passion for helping others navigate their own struggles. Her academic background in psychology, with a specialization in developmental and cognitive psychology, reinforced her dedication to understanding the human mind and the potential we all possess. Michelle's story is a powerful reminder that we can break free from the chains of our past and create a brighter future for ourselves. We delved into her transformation, the moment when she realized she needed to take control of her own life and well-being. Michelle's awakening came when she couldn't ignore the weight of her own excuses and the realization that she had been living to please others for far too long. Her journey toward self-discovery and empowerment serves as a beacon of hope for anyone feeling stuck or unfulfilled. Michelle's message is clear: you don't have to be fearless or ready to make a change, but you do need to be fed up with the way things are. She encourages us all to take those first steps, even if it means moving forward with fear.

Heyyyy friend! I have some AMAZING guests and episodes coming up right around the corner, and as we get ready for that I wanted to post this replay of the most popular solo episode of this podcast to date! Enjoy! ---- Today I wanted to talk with you about the dangers of getting caught up in a healing vortex. Something we trauma survivors can often end up doing is becoming soooo focused on our healing journey that it actually becomes detrimental. Let's chat about some of the warning signs of being so consumed with how we are healing that it's hindering our healing. Should be a good chat! (oh, with some funny interruptions from my dog along the way. #reallife) Did you like this episode? Shoot me a message and let me know! ALSO - *very important* - your ratings and reviews are what get this podcast out into the world, so if you can take a moment to leave a rating and review, it would mean so much.

S2 E19: Coffee with Gabi! What Does "Success" Actually Mean??
Welcome back to another episode of Pain to Passion Live! In this episode, I find myself in the familiar setting of a Starbucks parking lot, where inspiration always seems to strike. It's funny how our ideal podcasting setup doesn't always match the locations where we feel most inspired, right? But hey, even in the show "Only Murders in the Building," their podcasting success comes from recording on their phones, so we're in good company. ;) Now, let's dive into the heart of today's discussion: success. We often associate success with external outcomes, like financial achievements or business milestones. But what if we shifted our perspective? What if success was defined by the integrity of keeping promises to ourselves and taking action, regardless of the immediate results? In this episode, I explore this paradigm shift and how it can lead to a more fulfilling and sustainable sense of success. I also share a powerful concept called "body doubling," especially helpful for those with ADHD, and how it ties into redefining success. So, if you've ever felt stuck in a cycle of chasing results that never seem to satisfy, join me in reshaping our understanding of success. And if you found this episode helpful, please share it with a friend and don't forget to subscribe for more exciting guests and discussions coming up soon. Thanks for tuning in!

S2E18: Coffee with Gabi! Am I Crazy or Am I Healing?
29-09-2023
S2E18: Coffee with Gabi! Am I Crazy or Am I Healing?
Hello, lovely friends! Gabi here, excited to chat with you. Today, let's explore the idea of healing and emotional responses. Did you know that it's incredibly important to allow our natural reactions to trauma, reactions like shaking, crying, or even screaming? Suppressing these responses can lead to long-term issues. These physical reactions to difficult or traumatic experiences can be an example that, as we heal, it may feel like we're going backward because we're finally feeling our emotions again. But remember, this is progress, not regression. Feeling anger when faced with injustice is valid; it's your body's response to something wrong. Grieving when trust is broken is healing, so don't hold back. Healing and success go hand in hand. Trust your intuition, be authentic, and watch your growth. Sometimes, having to wait a bit longer for opportunities to open up can be a gift. It allows for more healing and growth, so when you do enter those spaces, you're truly yourself. Stay tuned for exciting guests, and if you're interested in one-on-one coaching, check the show notes for more info. Thanks for joining me, and take a moment to savor your coffee or tea.

S2E17: Coffee with Gabi! Good Girl Syndrome

S2E17: Coffee with Gabi! Good Girl Syndrome
I'm back after a brief hiatus! In this episode I delve into the concept of "Good Girl Syndrome" and how it has affected my life and how it may be affecting yours. I share a story about a therapy session revelation (IYKYK;)) and how it freed me from the constraints of conforming to specific societal expectations. Join me as I discuss the pressures of being a "good girl" and the belief that I must only express positive emotions. I challenge the notion that complaining is sinful and emphasize the importance of speaking one's truth, even when it involves acknowledging frustration or annoyance. This episode invites you to break free from the limitations of Good Girl Syndrome and embrace the power of honesty and vulnerability. I hope my personal journey serves as a beacon of hope for anyone else learning to speak up and tell the truth, even when it's not pretty. Tune in to this empowering episode of Pain to Passion Live as my journey inspires you to break free from the confines of Good Girl Syndrome and embrace the truth within you.

S2E16: A Therapist's Remarkable Journey of Healing from Trauma, Learning to Trust, and Embracing Her True Identity - Tasha Hunter
On this episode of Pain to Passion Live, I have a very special guest: Tasha Hunter, a licensed clinical social worker, therapist, survivor, writer, speaker, and a fierce advocate for child abuse survivors and those who have struggled with thoughts of ending their lives. In this episode, Tasha shares some of her incredible journey of self-discovery and healing. She opens up about her struggles and how she found her true calling in becoming a therapist. Tasha reveals the pivotal moment when a therapist told her, "There's nothing wrong with you; it's trauma," and how this simple statement changed her life forever. Through raw vulnerability, Tasha takes us on a profound exploration of her childhood experiences, trauma, and the lasting impact it had on her ability to trust others and speak her truth. She shares how therapy became her safe space and a catalyst for her transformation. Join us as Tasha reflects on the power of healing, the strength of the human spirit, and the beauty of showing up for others in their pain. We learn that the journey to self-discovery is ongoing, and even though Tasha has come a long way, she candidly shares that there are still parts of her that are still in the process of learning to trust others and know herself. This episode will resonate deeply with anyone who has faced trauma or struggled to find their voice. Tasha's story reminds us of the importance of compassion, connection, and the profound healing power of therapy. More about Tasha: Speaker, author, therapist, and host of the When We Speak podcast. I believe healing comes when we have people in our lives who hold space for us, allow us to show vulnerability, offer hope, and encouragement. I believe that we can manage almost anything if we have people in our lives to walk with us through the insurmountable circumstances that come our way.I believe many of the world’s problems exist because of relationship and communication failures. I believe that healing cannot happen without fully acknowledging what hurts, who hurt us, and how it’s impacted our lives. I believe that we should all find our voice and live in our own truth—whatever that might be.

For today's episode of Pain to Passion Live, I had an incredibly insightful conversation with Marcie Alvis Walker, an amazing writer who shares her personal experiences as a Black woman in this world. Marcie's journey as a storyteller is truly inspiring, and you can feel her passion for storytelling in every word she shares. We dived deep into her book, Everybody Come Alive, where she poignantly describes growing up between two different worlds, with her grandparents on one side (who presented a more assimilated image to the world) and her mother on the other (who embraced her Black identity with pride). This contrasting environment exposed her to the complexity of racial dynamics from an early age. We discussed how race is often more about people's feelings and perceptions than actual facts. It's something Marcie experienced as a child when she watched "Roots" with the rest of the world. The show brought the subject of race to the forefront, but back then, there was little language or understanding to discuss it openly. This lack of language and education about racism only perpetuates harmful stereotypes and misconceptions. Marcie also touched on the impact of systemic racism and how it affects children, especially in their early developmental years. It's essential for parents to acknowledge the larger public conversation about race and engage with their kids to create a more inclusive and empathetic world. We talked about the power of storytelling in shaping perspectives and changing lives. Stories have the ability to transform our views of the world and build bridges of understanding between people from different backgrounds. Throughout the podcast, Marcie's insights are truly eye-opening, and her personal experiences shed light on the importance of having open conversations about race and its impact on all of us. I'm grateful to Marcie for sharing her story and inspiring us all to create a more compassionate and inclusive world. This is a conversation you won't want to miss! As always, please rate and review this podcast, and share with a friend! Let's get these empowering and encouraging episodes out to as many people as we can. Thank you, friends!

S2E13: REPLAY! Most Popular Episode: How Do We Move Forward After Immense Loss - Morgan Cheek
Welcome back, friends! Today I'm REPLAYING the most popular episode of Pain to Passion Live to date - I have also heard from so many people about how this episode has touched their hearts and lives! If you have experienced or are experiencing loss of any kind, this is a must-listen. Enjoy this amazing conversation I had with Morgan Cheek...and please share with anyone who needs this message! April 4, 2023: I feel so honored to be sharing Morgan Cheek’s story with you all on today’s episode of Pain to Passion Live! Morgan is an incredible human who I’m so grateful to have met in the wilds of Instagram. Her story has moved me deeply on so many levels, and I know it will move you as well. On this episode we talked about Morgan’s beautiful twin daughters, Bailey Grace and Ally, who were born with a very rare disease and who left this earth at the ages of 6 and 7. We talk about how their lives changed Morgan and the way she sees the world and about the beauty of just being and knowing you are loved exactly as you are. Morgan also shared how she’s changed since losing the girls - how it’s made her look hard at her life and want to live more freely and authentically. It’s caused her to see God in a new light and realize that a life of performance is not a life lived fully awake and alive. To be known, loved, authentic, and free is how life is meant to be lived. I’m so incredibly inspired by Morgan and her faith. It’s humbling and encouraging to see someone who has been through the very worst of grief still clinging to Jesus and choosing to live so fully. Be so blessed and strengthened as you listen to this interview, my friends!! And as always, please rate and review the podcast so this story and others can reach more people! Thank you so much! More about Morgan: Morgan Cheek is the author of three books, the latest being Even In Darkness- a modern-day Psalms that gives the reader the opportunity to have an honest conversation with God and themselves about the hard spaces in life. She is the co-owner of WinMo Fitness, an online fitness company that specializes in fitness programming, nutrition coaching, and coaching accountability. Morgan has her Masters in Social Work; and WinMo Fitness also partners with studios and retreat centers to do conferences that focus on the mind/body connection and how trauma and stress can be tremendously helped with the power of movement. Morgan is married to Hugh and has three children- two in heaven (Bailey Grace (6) and Ally (7) ) and one on earth (James, who was adopted from China at the age of 7 and is now 11). Morgan is passionate about helping people believe they are already loved and accepted by God as is- and she longs to help others understand how to live their best, authentic lives in the midst of all seasons. She’s an endurance athlete who loves any kind of physical challenge. You won’t ever come to her house without finding several candles lit- and probably her latest baking project, too.

S2E9: Coffee with Gabi! What Is Fear Keeping You From Doing?

S2E9: Coffee with Gabi! What Is Fear Keeping You From Doing?
Fear is tricky. It's a very natural emotion, but it can make you feel like you should avoid things that maybe you should actually be engaging in. I know for me, I've been prone to fear and anxiety for most of my - like most survivors of early childhood trauma and CPTSD! Again, like I said, it's so normal to feel fear. But over the years I have really learned that some of life's greatest gifts are on the other side of fear. So how do we move through fear without betraying our bodies and our hearts? How can we reframe what we think about fear when we encounter it? And what might we find on the other side of fear if we learn how to move through it more regularly? These are some of the questions I am answering in this short and sweet episode. I'm so excited for you guys to grasp these concepts and be able to courageously move into some of those things you may have stayed away from because you've been afraid. Tell me your story about moving through fear - I'd love to hear it! Shoot me a DM on Instagram or email me at gabi@paintopassionlive.com!

S2E8: Do You Love Yourself? - Lori McAfee
When's the last time you thought about whether or not you actually love yourself? On today's episode of Pain to Passion Live, I am so honored to share a conversation with my beautiful friend, Lori McAfee, who is a QUEEN at helping others understand what it means to truly love themselves. I am so grateful for Lori's willingness to share her own story of learning to love herself - a story that includes an unexpected teen pregnancy, the grief of her church community asking her to leave, and of understanding that love is a vulnerable thing - that is so so worth it. Have you ever asked yourself any of these questions: Is it right to love myself? Is it safe to be seen? Do I know and appreciate who I truly am? Do I believe I have intrinsic value? If I don't fully love myself, am I still able to fully love others? If you have, this episode is for you. You will be SO blessed and encouraged, my friend!! And remember - you are LOVED. More about Lori:  Lori McAfee is a sought-after life coach, speaker, and podcast host of “Get Your Rear in Gear with Lori.”   Lori is a professional certified life coach, an emotional intelligence practitioner and a behavioral consultant with DiSC assessment with marriage certifications.  As one that believes life is a choice, she learned the hard truth of losing oneself and what it means to get your rear into gear to get to know and love who she truly is.   Lori is a wife to the love of her life, a mother, and Mimi to an all-girl gang. She is a lover of sunsets over a lake, the echoes of laughter, and the tender warmth of love, and she is an unapologetic disciple of Jesus.  Connect with Lori: Website - lorimcafeecoaching.com Instagram - @lorimclifecoach Facebook - facebook.com/lori.r.mcafee Podcast - Get Your Rear in Gear with Lori - coming soon!

S2E7: Coffee with Gabi! Do You Believe That You Actually Matter?
09-06-2023
S2E7: Coffee with Gabi! Do You Believe That You Actually Matter?
If you're anything like me, you have struggled throughout your life to believe that you actually matter as much as anyone else. Personally, I was raised in a conservative Christian environment with messages like "always put others before yourself" and "what you want doesn't matter" and "always give to others." Don't get me wrong - I absolutely believe in serving others, in being generous and giving, and not living selfishly. But so often, these "Christian" teachings (I say that in quotes because I do NOT think they reflect Jesus) become harmful because we don't value ourselves and can get to the point where we will do anything that anyone else wants or needs, even if it actually hurts us. It's been a process for me to deconstruct this, and maybe it's been the same for you. In this brief and vulnerable episode, I share a bit about the revelations I've been having about this in the past few weeks. It's been revolutionizing my world, and I thought you all may benefit from these thoughts, too. Thank you so much for being here with me! Would you mind taking a moment to rate and review the podcast? Also if you could share about it on social media or send to a friend or two, that would be amazing! I want as many people as possible to receive the encouragement available here on this show. Thank you so much!!
