#15: Healing Our Wounds With Music (Mike Mains)

Tyler May and Laura Benson talk with Mike Mains about his journey through depression and mental illness towards becoming a professional musician. He was completely honest and open with us about his deepest wounds and how through music and counseling he has been able to heal, showing other strugglers his scars that tell the story, “You are not alone.” We also talked about his songwriting process which incorporates heartache and battles with mental illness into his newly released album When We Were in Love. Other struggles talked about in this episode include problems with finding identity, marital tensions, obsessing in despair, and vulnerably sharing one’s own heart.
