Trying to figure it out with Ally Petitti

In the context of the rocky identity of youth, Ally Petty Decided to create a space to use her past to guide and encourage others. “I’m always open about my experiences and my stories. I never shy away from talking to friends or family and have been in therapy for years. After going through one of the hardest years of my life, I quit my job at that point and It took me a few months to decide what would happen next for me. At that point, I realized I wanted to do something with my experience and share it. I reached out to my mentor, and he said I should start a podcast and I had to create a place to open up about everything I wanted to open and that was when the idea came to fruition. Once I decided that I was going to do it, I was not stopped there and within 6 months Trying to figure it out Live! ” Her podcast, Trying to figure it out (TTFIO), Runs the gamut of social and personal issues. “I started TTFIO Aiming to share my story and create a space for others related to me. The podcast focuses on everything from mental health to growing up in a divided family, to friendships, relationships, sexuality, body positivity and other things that we are all ‘trying to get out of.’ With single episodes and guests, we dive into many things and aim to help those who are going through the same thing or those who have gone through the same thing. ” The Allies have steadfastly decided to be pure and weak. “It’s kind of weird because when it’s just me recording, I feel very good about sharing all my personal stories and I feel very safe to share them. I do it because it really feels real. Once it’s out, anyone can hear it and it can be scary when talking about this kind of personal experience. That being said, I’ve always been an open book, so once I decided that I I am building this space, I am committed to it and I believe in myself and in what I have to say. ”

She has never shied away from openly discussing her ongoing struggle with mental (and now physical) health. My concerns were deeply rooted in my health and the fears of the people around me and lots of separation concerns. Most recently, I went through many physical health experiences, including PCOS and a pituitary tumor that I removed. These experiences added to my anxiety, and it crippled me for a long time. I don’t think I left my home for 4 months after my surgery. I have been taking medication for my anxiety for over two years now and can confidently say that the medication has changed with the therapy and saved my life. Over the past year, I have felt that my anxiety has been controlled so much that I am more in tune with my inner emotions and unfortunately I am struggling with depression. The last 6 months I have been recovering from a depressed state and I am very grateful to find my happiness again every single day. It’s not a linear journey, and I certainly didn’t, but I try to listen to my body every day and do what I need to do to find my groove and my happiness. ”

The combination of love and space has been the winning formula for continued recovery. “Routine implementation in my life, being open about how I feel and what I’m going through, my medication, therapy and the close network of my friends and family have saved me through the darkest times. There are times when I have to be alone and how I feel. I feel it has to be processed. But I am grateful for all the support from the world. ” Mitra herself is amazed at her progress. “My last year of really struggling has made me feel incredibly frustrated with myself. I can confidently, honestly and passionately say that I am for myself and where I am now after all the work and recovery. Can’t be more proud. I’ve been through it, but I’m grateful for my wonderful life, my family, my friends and all the things I’ve been blessed with. I’m proud to share my stories, I’m proud I’m happy Feeling we have ‘Run out of gas’ emotionally, and again, and I’m proud to have made this podcast. It is very important to stay connected with your body and emotions. “My advice to anyone who is struggling to find a way out is not to be too hard on yourself. Sometimes going to the end of the tunnel looking for light is thinking too big and too far. It’s not a linear trip, and you’re not going to feel good right away. Instead, listen to your body – if your day is bad and you want to stay in bed and order a comfortable meal … do it! If you feel bad and want to do something to make you feel good … go there and do it If you have this huge goal of complete happiness and strive for some kind of cure, your bad days can be really discouraging. So, listen to your body, rely on the people around you, get help if you feel comfortable and most Importantly, don’t be too hard on yourself. ”

TTFIO There will be an inclusive platform and Ally welcomes everyone with open arms. “I aim to bring guests to the podcast who can relate to others, who feel comfortable being open and deep with me, and who have stories to share from a perspective that I can’t necessarily tell from my own experience. I have a lot of people I would love to be with, but I wouldn’t say there are any dream guests out there, I’m grateful for anyone who enters and opens my studio and anyone who wants to do it is a dream guest. For me. “The podcast already boasts of the opening episodes of popular TikTok star Jordin Jones and the Brooklyn Web. As long as it’s a source of comfort and inspiration, she’ll be happy.” I hope my audience can find it. TTFIO Healing, growing up, laughing, crying and most importantly reminding them that they are not alone. I hope this podcast continues to reach as many listeners as possible and that I will be able to influence people for many years to come! ”

In addition to launching her podcast, Ally is using her new confidence to finally pursue her modeling dreams! This is a big step in accepting his true self. “I’ve always wanted to get into modeling, but I’ve never felt like I fit into the mold. I wasn’t tall enough, I wasn’t skinny enough, I didn’t always fit the standards that were in modeling. In this journey of being proud of myself, loving myself, and wanting to embrace every part of me, I wanted to embark on modeling and do it with the belief that I didn’t have to be ‘perfect’. I can be mine and still do it. “Still, he knows navigating this thing called life is a perennial task.” I can’t stress enough that I’m not an expert. I am not a therapist. I’m simply sharing my story and the stories I bring to the pod. Who says that? Trying to figure it out Because I’m still trying to figure out what I’m talking about. I have not mastered as a child of divorce, I still have toxic friendships, I still fight every day over my mental health and what I want to do with my life. I’m trying to figure it out like everyone else and this space is about growth, learning and healing. I don’t think any of us can find everything in life! ” Maybe not, but at least Ally reminds us that we will have company when we do it.
