    More on taking a stand to make changes in your life - A peaceful approach or take a risk instead?

    Taking a stand or protesting an injustice in your life isn't always about being aggressive. Often, it can be a peaceful objection that helps you move toward honoring yourself. Sometimes you have to take a bigger stand, even at the risk of loss. In this episode, I receive an email from someone who didn't appreciate my comments from the previous "Take a stand" episode so I talk about taking a stand even more today.

    Email grab bag: Purging awkwardness, the perfect partner, lonely and depressed

    I read three emails that dive into awkward feelings when interacting with others, deciding whether to settle for someone who doesn't know what they want in a relationship, and someone who wrote to me saying that they are lonely and depressed. Lots of variety makes for a packed show. visit https://theoverwhelmedbrain.com for more episodes.

    I can't get you out of my head but I need to so I can start living again

    Obsessing about your ex wastes all your time and keeps you in a rut that you can't get out of until you take hard steps to disconnect from them completely. That involves a lot of will power and a lot of knowing that you are amazing, worthy and lovable.

    Dealing with mean family

    There is a way to deal with mean family members. It may involve treating them like other people instead of family, which can help you disconnect from wanting to impress them or be loved by them.

Bits of wisdom

Paul states in the beginning of his show these are opinions. With that being said his genuine feelings and experiences really make for a wonderful insightful podcast. I find it less educational and more opinionated than anything but I’ve gained a lot of wisdom from it. I listen to a few diff psych podcasts and it puts his into perspective that his podcast is more an education on life than anything.
