Despite peer doubts, Liv pursued her passion, published multiple novels, and empowered others to embrace their true selves. Her insights reveal how embracing vulnerability and inner magic can help you thrive as your unique unicorn self.
Overcoming Anxiety & Self-Doubt
Though anxious since childhood, Liv only got diagnosed with severe anxiety in adulthood. After ineffective therapy and medication, she found relief through activities like cold exposure, martial arts, and pushing her physical limits. Liv emphasizes finding what works for you mentally, even if it deviates from the norm.
Turning Passion into a Career
Liv dreamed of being an author from a young age but studied business and worked in banking due to societal pressures. A creative writing course reignited her passion. Despite constant rejections, Liv persisted, got published, and now writes full-time. She urges following your purpose, not external doubts.
Advocating Sex Positivity
Liv incorporates positive depictions of sex in her romance novels to battle stigma. She also gives sex advice in media outlets, noting intimacy troubles often come from lack of communication. Liv aims to empower people to speak openly about their needs and embrace sexual wellness.
Liv Arnold shows that when you face vulnerabilities courageously and unapologetically pursue your purpose, you can tap into your inner magic. Her self-love journey reveals the importance of accepting yourself wholly, anxieties and passions alike.
