Ep. 31 - The loneliness of change - a coffee with Justin Oberste MA AMFT The Loneliness Guy

    • Health & Fitness

In this episode of my podcast for gay men experiencing loneliness, I have a coffee with my friend Justin Oberste who shared his beautiful reflections on the loneliness of change on my blog last week.

Change can be hard. We avoid it. We try to do everything in our power to ignore it. We numb ourselves.

Think for a moment how you wrestle within yourself when you feel pulled to make change: changing jobs, ending a relationship or indeed, coming out.

However we numb, ignore or deny, sooner or later, we find ourselves back at the same decision point.

That point can be lonely. We wrestle with some uncomfortable thoughts and feelings. We have a dark night of the soul.

Let me get you a coffee and let’s talk about that with Justin.
