    Episode 26: Vulnerability and Ending Isolation with Aaron Walker

    Episode 26: Vulnerability and Ending Isolation with Aaron Walker

    What comes to mind when we say “isolation?” Is it something like a small island with a lone palm tree? We all can feel this way at times, whether that is due to a recent move or maybe a friend that has pulled away. But on an even deeper level, the truth is we all shy away from being vulnerable with those around us, creating an environment that actually isolates us more. Today we’re welcoming Aaron Walker on to the podcast, whose mission is to eradicate vulnerability and help men transform their lives. Aaron shares what it looks like to truly be vulnerable with others, why community and connection matters deeply, and more. Listen in!

    Episode 25: How to Assume the Best in People

    Episode 25: How to Assume the Best in People

    A few years ago, we were returning home from a long road trip when we hit an unexpected delay at a rest stop. Another family blocked our way and it felt like forever before we could get back on the road. When we finally did, I (Carly) turned to Neal to share our annoyance but, to my surprise, his response was totally different from mine! If we’re honest, we all have a tendency to assume the worst in other people, especially when something they’re doing is an inconvenience to us or makes us feel unseen or unheard. In this episode, we are taking a deeper look at what it looks like to think highly of others and assume the best.

    Episode 24: 10 Signs of Unsafe People

    Episode 24: 10 Signs of Unsafe People

    We are surrounded by relationships with people. And while we don’t always get to choose the people around us, like our co-workers and family members, we do have a responsibility to construct boundaries wherever necessary around those relationships that keep us safe. The key to doing this well is to be able to identify who is or isn’t a safe person. When we can surround ourselves with safe relationships, we can thrive emotionally and have the foundation to construct healthy boundaries. In today’s episode, Neal and Carly are jumping into the 10 signs that tell us if someone is unsafe!

To help us discuss how we can build more sustainable friendships in a post-pandemic world is Blake Blankenbecler, creator of the Friendship Deck and a licensed therapist dedicated to being a “Friendship Educator.” We hope this episode is valuable for you this week!

    Do you ever feel like you're spinning your wheels trying to change your negative thought patterns? Or do you ever feel frustrated by the suggestions of people who say to simply stop thinking a certain way? If so, you aren’t alone! When we try to change what we think, we sometimes do so in a way that either is shame-based or merely stuffs our thoughts down until they come back with a vengeance. In this episode, we are diving into the three important aspects of changing your thoughts the right way!
