The Loveable Podcast

Summary: The two deepest desires of every human heart are to love simply and to live fully. So why do our relationships remain so complicated, and why do our lives sometimes ring so hollow? Because neither love nor life can be truly embraced until you, and only you, have embraced your truest, worthiest self. In his book, LOVEABLE, clinical psychologist and popular blogger, Kelly Flanagan explored how trusting our worthiness forms the foundation upon which we find true belonging and discover our purpose in life. LOVEABLE has been described as “a handbook for how to be human.” Now, in this podcast, Kelly delivers the tools for living fully into who you are and why you are here. Each weekly episode includes an inspirational reading, a presentation of practices for the week, and a conversation with Kelly’s readers about both. Inspirational. Practical. Conversational. It’s like a year’s worth of free therapy. Except it’s much more. It’s how to become whole. You can visit Kelly's blog at And for more information about LOVEABLE, go to
