The Power of Emotional Release: Why Hiding How You Feel Endangers Your Health with Kimberly Stevens

We often slip into the habit of putting on a brave face rather than openly admitting our vulnerabilities. But beneath the surface, emotions can swirl in ways that are anything but calm. However, like water dammed behind a cracking wall, unexpressed feelings will find an outlet one way or another, whether through physical symptoms, conflict in relationships, or deteriorating mental well-being over time. 

In this episode, Daniel sits with Kimsurance founder, Kimberly J. Stevens to talk about how resilience, community, gratitude, and faith can offer hope in life’s darkest moments.  

Despite immense personal tragedy including losing her young son to illness, battling breast cancer, and facing financial ruin, Kimberly Stevens’ indomitable spirit has driven her to transform pain into purpose. Through courageous vulnerability in her acclaimed memoir  ALTAR’d and as a sought-after keynote speaker, she shares hard-earned wisdom on finding resilience within life’s deepest valleys and empowering others with the hope that carried her through.

Listen in as Daniel and Kimberly share practical tools and strategies to help process grief, insights into how suppressed emotions can manifest physically, the importance of emotional release, the power of shifting one’s perspective in hard times, and how healing comes from allowing ourselves to be vulnerable.

“When we're in pain, we want to get back to joy. And if we shut off pain, we shut off joy also.” —Kimberly Stevens
