    Making Space for Being Uncomfortable

    Making Space for Being Uncomfortable

    In today’s episode, host Calan Breckon and guest Drummond Fulcher dive into the uncomfortable for a conversation that revolves around cancel culture, the "either you’re with me or against me (or us)" mentality, giving space for the in-between where conversation happens, how bridges are where understanding is born, and where we need to go in order to work through the uncomfortable feelings in order to learn and grow.

    Together they unpack questions like:
    -Why do people avoid being uncomfortable?
    -How do you think cancel culture affects our community?
    -How do we make space in our lives for being uncomfortable and having hard conversations?

    Take a listen to find out how you can better navigate uncomfortable conversations and begin building more bridges of understanding and compassion in your life today.

    Mindset

    Your mind is a powerful tool that you can use to create a life that you love. Your mindset is your overall outlook on life and it will determine whether you remain stuck spinning your wheels or moving towards your goals and dreams. 



    In this episode, we’re looking specifically at the difference between the Fixed and Growth Mindsets. We will be discussing questions such as…. 



    What type of mindset were you raised with (growth of fixed)? And what mindset do you have today?How do you cultivate more of a growth mindset for yourself? What did you have to transform to become a more growth mindset-oriented?What is your internal dialogue in a fixed mindset say to you vs. when you’re in a growth mindset?What has helped you on your growth journey that may help our listeners?



    By the end of this episode, you’ll feel motivated and inspired to leave behind the fixed mindset and shift into a growth mindset.

Heartbreaks & breakups

I just got out of a 9 year relationship with my ex and was looking for a good podcast to just help with what I was feeling. This episode I heard 3 different stories all of which I could relate in some way. Thank you for sharing.

Really needed this podcast

I really needed this podcast. I’ve had so much shame about being a bottom and feeling less than. This podcast opened up a new perspective I hadn’t thought of. Thank you for this 💙

Good topics but typical narcissistic men

They cover a good range of topics and offer some insightful information and thoughts. However, it just seems like a bunch of narcissistic gay men rambling on and on after a while. Even their Facebook group has a bunch of questions you have to answer to make sure you’re “like-minded.” Whatever that means. I was denied entry because I didn’t fill out all the excessively introspective questions. I guess you can’t be a member if you’re someone who continually questions things and isn’t going to tow the line with a static stance on things. Not for me but I think some others might enjoy.
