    The problem with "time heals all"

    The problem with "time heals all"

    In this podcast I talk about the problem with the phrase “time heals all”.  There are so many phrases that we use without really thinking of their impact until it hits us—we are in a place where we experience first-hand the pain that a blithe statement, meant as comfort, can cause, even something as simple as “time heals all”. So why does the phrase “time heals all wounds” feel so frustrating and untrue at certain times in our lives?

JSBlessed ,

Powerful podcast for transforming the mind!

Dr. Leaf has been a distant mentor of mine for years. Through this podcast, I am always inspired and challenged to do introspection, improve my emotional intelligence and transform the way I think. This podcast will help you do the mental work to live a more fulfilling life.

Make intrusive thought your best friend

Love this! Makes so much sense.

Sir Buzzard ,

Interview with self proclaiming 'witch'

I use to like Dr Leaf but I lost all respect for her after I heard the October 2, 2020 episode. Dr Leaf interviewed Dr Ellen Vora, a self proclaiming witch. Witchcraft is demonic, no matter how you spin it, and no matter how harness it may seem. I will never again listen to Dr Leaf since she endorses the counsel of a practicing witch. I want nothing to do with demonic activity.
