Every person has a unique story, but within all of us lies a motivation to understand our past in order to better our future. That’s what prompted Kelly Flanagan, Ph.D., to begin writing the popular blog UnTangled and the recent book, Loveable. SUCCESS.com’s Shelby Skrhak and Flanagan provide an emotional interview about the power of connectivity and self-worth.

This interview appears on the SUCCESS Talks Collection, available in the July 2017 edition of SUCCESS magazine.

Favorite quote from this episode:

“I’m worthy by virtue of my very existence. And that means everyone around me also is worthy by virtue of their very existence. I realize that I’m walking in a world of worthy people and I can treat people as such and I can expect to be treated as such. Then life becomes a lot more compassionate and caring and supportive."

—Kelly Flanagan
