    4715 In the Name of Elvis, Saving the World is NOT What You Think!

    4715 In the Name of Elvis, Saving the World is NOT What You Think!

    16 October 2020 Call-In

    Intro: what sorts of hobbies do you do?

    0:10 - A listener plays an Elvis medley for us!
    - Heartbreak Hotel
    - Are You Lonesome Tonight?
    - Blue Suede Shoes
    - Don't Be Cruel
    - You Ain't Nothin' But a Hound Dog

    0:41 - Follow-up question to the Necrophilia show: after listening, I began to consider how this applied to me. I've not observed many functional relationships and thus began to ask myself, how do I train my mind to look for value in relationships? How do I know what to look for when I don't know what that looks like?

    1:00 - Can you expand on the concept that you started to get into with the recent call in about negotiating with 2 year olds? What of the argument that small children do not have a sense of self enough to form conceptual ideas required for negotiating.
    Specifically, isn't it facetious to start a conversation about choice regarding things that a parent has no intention of compromising on, such as teeth brushing, bathing, eating veggies, etc. And speaking to a small child with no sense of self, is it productive or good to bring in the factor of choice?
    Alternatively, is creating a sense of 'this is just the way things are' more productive for small children? As in, the sun rises and we get dressed and eat breakfast. We don't negotiate with the sun rising, nor getting dressed or eating breakfast.

    1:19 - Following up regarding our previous conversation, I feel very stuck, not really sure what to do next. I'm experiencing a lot of self doubt. Can you help?

    4710 YOUR PAST IS NOT YOU!!! Freedomain Call In

    Hello Stefan, I’m a 30 year old man with a long history of major depression and isolation that stems from my childhood experiences and growing up with neglectful and verbally abusive parents. My parents got divorced when I was one year old and my mother had custody of us mainly while my father would take us out over the weekends. My mother remarried later to my step-father and ended that marriage very similarly. My father would usually take us over his sister’s house and would just drop us off and watch sports on television with my uncle and never spent actual time with us. I had a lot of problems in school and was put on SSRI’s at the age of 13 and was diagnosed with major depression and bi-polar, which later I found out that bi-polar was an inaccurate diagnosis. I’ve been hospitalized on several occasions due to suicidal thoughts and self-destructive behavior, and looking back on it now, the only reason I behaved that way I feel was because it was the only way to get my mother’s attention when I felt that negative, as she also would ignore us most of the time and watch television. They both had the double standard of putting me down for playing video games too much while essentially doing the same thing they would. I went through a heavy video gaming addiction up until my mid 20’s, and then developed a heavy addiction to marijuana. I went through many counselors and psychiatrists, adjusting/changing medications until I found out the truth about these medications with the help of your show. I now firmly believe that my issues lie within post-traumatic stress, and have been off both the meds and marijuana for some time now. I moved out in my own apartment over 2 years ago now, and have not seen or talked with my parents since then. I had a long talk with both of my parents before moving and tried explaining the way I have felt and shed some truth to them, but they basically gave me more b******t and I couldn’t have any sort of meaningful connection.

    In present day, I have terrible flashbacks and dreams about my experiences and have lost a few jobs trying to cope with it all and am afraid of losing my livelihood and my life along with it. How do I move past this and start to define my own identity and make my own path towards happiness and not let this dark side of me run my life like it has for so many years? I have so much difficulty making connections and friends due to trust issues and the fear of being abandoned once again. I often ask myself, “How can I love someone else when I can’t even take the time to love myself?”. It has already taken its toll on me to where I feel bitter and resentful and I struggle with feelings of little to no positives. I have been going to therapy for a couple years now, what else can I do to help myself?

Steve Andjelkovic ,

A Talented Individual

Stephan is a pro. Magnificent ideas and diatribes. He can see right through the mainstream news and throws in historical gems which puts different discussion topic in perspectives which blow people’s minds.

Rogpat ,

My “Go to” guy on pretty much everything

Stefan’s intellect and humanity are amazing. What sets him apart is his razor sharp, timely analysis of what’s going on in the world. (Although I would say, reluctantly, that I was disappointed (once) that he did not know about the MBTI’s reliability and validity before saying, incorrectly, that they were not established).

Mike_josef ,

Stef the rapper

I'm inclined to finally leave a review after your MNM rap - brilliant rebuttal Stef - love the show
