• Summary

  • I’m Glennon Doyle, author of Untamed – the book that was released at the very start of the pandemic and became a lifeline for millions. I watched in awe from my home while this simple phrase from Untamed – WE CAN DO HARD THINGS – the mantra that saved my life twenty years ago, became a worldwide rally cry. Because we experienced the hardship of the pandemic collectively, many of us finally acknowledged what was true before COVID and will be true after: That life is freaking HARD. We are all doing hard things every single day – things like loving and losing caring for children and parents; forging and ending friendships; battling addiction, illness, and loneliness; struggling in our jobs, our marriages, and our divorces; setting boundaries; and fighting for equality, purpose, freedom, joy, and peace. On We Can Do Hard Things, my sister Amanda and I will do the only thing I’ve found that has ever made life easier: We will drop the fake and talk honestly about the hard. Each week we will bring our hard to you and we will ask you to bring your hard to us and we will do what we were all meant to do down here: Help each other carry the hard so we can all live a little bit lighter and braver, more free and less alone.

It feels like outrage farming.

It has the feel of people who are not wise pretending wisdom. I think I was supposed to be outraged as a woman. I don't see these meek, subservient women in my circles, so this may just be the truth for her, but not for me. YMMV.

Not recovered, Grandiose

I read Love Warrior and was like, Meh. I didn't buy the other books. Started listening to the Podcast after hearing a few interviews I liked. I'm increasingly frustrated with G interrupting Sister and Abby particularly when they are expounding on a point of view that isn't rabid anti-male/anti-hetero which would balance the points. I'm frustrated about those things that clearly indicate lack of recovery from ED (the sip of, bite of that is owed because otherwise you won't allow yourself the pleasure). I support a loved one in early recovery from ED so I feel I have some perspective here. As a sober alcoholic, myself, the lack of recovery shown in the intolerance of views not yours, definitions you don't like, history of a partner that causes a strong ICK reaction and so forth causes me to cringe for the attraction aspects of releasing the I, Self, Me from the ISM of alcoholism. These glaring and chronic issues muddy otherwise beautiful points about growth and openness. I regret I can no longer consume this content, I'm sad it's making you money. Hate never cures hate. Contempt never breeds empathy.

Genuine and real!

This podcast is my absolute favorite! Hits home on so many real hard things but also joyful things that come from the hard. I find myself really deeply listening, laughing and identifying not only with myself, but those in my life as well that these topics hit home on. Thank you for your honest grit, and laughter but also the ability to see the rainbow through the hard issues. I really love this podcast!!! Keep it up!!!

New Fav Podcast

I fell in love with G when listening to Untamed on audible. It was life changing truly. When I heard she was making a podcast with her sister I was excited and it has not disappointed. I could listen to them talk all day. And her daughter's song is so sweet (brings a little tear to my eye everytime). Thank you for sharing yourselves and time!!

Yes! Thank you all so much!

This episode has been amazing. Thank you all for your vulnerability with this really *hard* (sometimes I guess) topic. Especially sister, I appreciate her ability to talk to the women who have been in that situation. It’s not easy and we need to talk about this more. Thank you.

Also, I agree. I do think a lot of the silent sex Queen issues are around control. This has given me a lot to consider. Thanks so much.

T.I.R.E.D

I cried listening to the intro (before even listening to the Podcast) because, like most women, I feel the overwhelm at the soul level. How do we get out of this viscous cycle?

Thanks

I have ran the proverbial gambit with emotions and I am still listening every show every time. After reading some other reviews I am so sorry for those who must rely on being ugly inside of them it must be horrible. I'm not one to offer my opinion just to be an a*' hole. I'm not going to make a point to waste more time to show how much I know. lol except for now lolol. Thanks for the heartfelt truth you have been brave enough to offer. All of you are One of the reasons I am still here.

No words

I found this podcast by chance as I was looking for 'Untamed' (which I'm listening to at the moment and love just as much as the podcast). I usually binge listen to 4 to 6 episodes while at work, then take some time to recharge the batteries and process. I love the dynamic between Glennon, Amanda and Abby. They have become great companions while I weed away in the garden I tend to. The episodes make me sme, laugh, cry, feel empowered and so very heavy and helpless sometimes. Glennon's work is one of the important ones in this journey of finding myself that I'm currently on. I hope they will carry on for a while because I'm not yet ready for them to leave. I like it and I learn a lot from this and am grateful that it exists.
