Naked Tuesday: Author Judy Kucharuk Bares Her Soul & Provides Healing With Her Incredible Story On The Tedx Stage

Depression sucks. Literally. It sucks the joy and clarity from your mind leaving you feeling depleted and a shell of the person you know you are. It is very difficult to speak about and there is still so much stigma and shame that comes with sharing our experiences but it’s people like author and speaker Judy Kucharuk who pave the way for so many individuals who don’t have the strength to communicate their lived experiences with depression.

When Judy first stood on stage to share her Tedx Speech, “The Broken Window: Surviving Depression” I knew she was a writer. She pulled me into her experience with such detail and emotion that I can still feel her story when I reflect on it.

People want to turn away from depression because it makes them feel uncomfortable but Judy’s story did the opposite, it pulled me in like a love song you hear on the radio when you are feeling heartbroken, singing along at the top of your lungs in your car. Judy reminded me that I was not alone and that reminder is truly beautiful.

I love meeting kick ass women who are rocking life and using their adversity to help other rise up. Judy is one of those women and I am thrilled to share her Ted Talk with you today.

  1. This was just the tip of the iceberg for me. I need more…………. She was brilliant! I am coping, but some days, I need something special like this talk! Ironically, I lived in Dawson Creek many, many, many years ago. I taught school there. I now am retired after teaching in Halifax and living in Antigonish, my birth place. This is when I 1st heard in the wonderful Cara Jones. God bless her and Judy!

    I go through dark periods, but not as dark as in previous years, living in Hal. and in my teaching profession there.

    I struggle more with anxiety now! Also. severe sensitivity, low self esteem and self worth. These were my favorite things to instill in my young students. I was a hypocrite! Still am! believe in yourself!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! etc.

    Thank you for allowing me to share just a part of my story! Thank you Cara and Judy. I really, really needed this today! God bless! Myra

    1. Myra, thank you so much for leaving this comment. I felt the same way when I heard Judy’s presentation on the Tedx Stage. Sometimes it’s just so nice to know you are not alone. It’s okay to tell people to believe in yourself even if you don’t fully feel it yourself, the words are powerful and they seep into our subconscious even if we don’t feel like it. Keep up the amazing work! Love and light you!
