Episode #193: You’re going to stutter. It’s part of the package. So don’t beat yourself up if you have a stuttery day. That’s the advice from Pamela Mertz, Stutter Social host, and producer of the Women Who Stutter podcast and blog. Pamela hid her stuttering for 30 years until one day she had enough. Once she start stuttering openly, telling people about it, and hanging out with others who stutter, Pamela found resilience she never knew she had. “You’ll lessen the load and anxiety but just being yourself and stuttering openly. And it makes you a more interesting person, more unique”. On this episode, I ask Pamela to share her tips on how to survive and grow resilient to stuttering.
This is part 5 in a series where I ask each of the Stutter Social hosts to share their stuttering survival and resilience tips:
- Part 1 – The phone, dating, jobs, small talk
- Part 2 – Show your stutter who’s boss
- Part 3 – Give yourself permission not to be perfect every day
- Part 4 – Focusing on the positive stuttering experiences
