    Is Acceptable Madness… Unacceptable?

    Is Acceptable Madness… Unacceptable?

    In this episode, I (metaphorically) strip down and look at my naked body in the mirror and ask myself about what I'm doing with Acceptable Madness, and what I could be doing better. In the process, I decided to create a secondary brand/channel/thing called Unacceptable Madness where I post non-mental health related content so that I don't clutter my Acceptable Madness feeds with random stuff that some people don't like. Thanks for your patience as I work to understand my brand, and I hope you appreciate all of the upcoming changes. Also, I'm having to experiment with a bunch of different changes, like a different computer, desk setup and all sorts of other things, so if the audio doesn't sound as good this time around, I apologize, and will work to make it better in the future. Any insight that you give helps, so please let me know what you think. --- I am not a doctor, so do not treat this as therapy or medical advice.

    Sooo, I Got Engaged

    Sooo, I Got Engaged

    Whoa, I'm engaged! That's pretty exciting, right? Being in a committed Whoa, I'm engaged! That's pretty exciting, right? Being in a committed relationship is something that I never thought I'd be able to do, let alone get engaged. In this episode, I talk about the super unromantic way I started the proposal, the proposal itself, and how I overcame countless fears and embraced a long-term relationship (and sexy fiancée.) --- I am not a doctor, so do not treat this as therapy or medical advice.

    The Effects of Burn Out

    The Effects of Burn Out

    We're all stuck at home. We're all tired of being stuck at home. We're all stressed for a multitude of different reasons, whether it's from being unemployed and searching for a job, missing family, or just exhausted at our jobs. It's a hard time for everyone, and in this episode, I talk about what's been a struggle for me and how I'm trying to overcome it.

    The Joy of Progress

    The Joy of Progress

    Hello and thanks for tuning into another episode of Acceptable Madness! In this episode, I talk about progress, and how progressing or improving in something that you care about feels delightful - and maybe even happiness-inducing. Yeah. It's that good.

    I also talk about how the Carousel of Progress broke down when I was riding it with my family, creating the most ironic thing that I've ever lived through.

    Why People Like Things

    Why People Like Things

    Hello and thanks for checking out another episode of Acceptable Madness! Although the title of this episode seems kind of weird and super not detailed, this episode is about exactly what it says. People like different things for different reasons, and for the first time in my life, I was able to understand that instead of quantifying or questioning it, simply accepting that people like something is enough, and there's no reason to fight that. --- I am not a doctor, so do not treat this as therapy or medical advice.

    What If You Don’t Have Hobbies?

    What If You Don’t Have Hobbies?

    I know that in the past, I have talked about hobbies as almost entirely creativity based ventures, and I believe that that is short-sighted. In this episode, I talk about hobbies of all shapes and sizes, ranging from watching the massively over-rated Tiger King documentary to baking, and how no matter what you do with your free time, the only thing that ultimately matters is finding things that make you happy. --- I am not a doctor, so do not treat this as therapy or medical advice.
