It’s OK to Not Be OK: J.R. Martinez

Do you need some comfort right now? A dose of hope? Then good news: J.R. Martinez is HERE and he’s the guy for you.

A burn survivor, a veteran, a motivational speaker and so much more, J.R. opens up to us about his fascinating life. Which includes, by the way, winning “Dancing with the Stars” (!) and being named one of People Magazine’s Sexiest Men Alive. But J.R. isn’t just successful and charming – he’s someone we need in this moment. A man who loves therapy, who is grateful for the second chance he got at life, and who reminds all of us that when you’re vulnerable, there is loving support and a community, waiting for you on the other side.

On this episode, J.R. talks about:

  • The blessing of having visible wounds
  • Rejection, saying “I love you,” and entering therapy
  • His before and after moment, when a friend told him to release his pain (and cry)
  • Teaching people to be comfortable in his presence, and how that helps people feel more comfortable with themselves

Don’t just listen to this episode…savor it. J.R.’s words and energy are so nourishing, and I hope you enjoy listening to him as much as I did.
