    When social anxiety, fear, and loneliness keep you from doing what you want to do

    Social anxiety and feeling awkward in social situations is more normal than you might think. Not everyone is a gregarious extrovert that can start a conversation with anyone. If you're dealing with social anxiety, fear of judgment from others, or loneliness, and you feel like you're not living life to the fullest, this episode may be what gets you through the challenges.

    When life seems like an endless series of dead ends

    When life seems like an endless series of dead ends

    There's a path out of misery that some people don't take because of fear. But when the misery never ends, why not take that path? The gain is usually far greater than the loss. I talk about that path in this episode. I begin today's episode talking about the Coronavirus (CoVid19) and what you can do when you don't know what to do.

    The one question to ask yourself when you can't figure out what to do

    The one question to ask yourself when you can't figure out what to do

    There are many situations that show up in our lives that challenge us. Sometimes we are able to act authentically and have our truth motivate us to take the right steps. Other times, fear drives us to hold back what we really want to say or do, prolonging our challenges and keeping us from moving forward. The choices you make in crucial, challenging moments such as this can define your entire life, let alone predict your future level of happiness.

    Overcoming a general distrust of people and the benefit of taking risks

    Overcoming a general distrust of people and the benefit of taking risks

    If you are cynical about people and feel vulnerable and exposed around most people you meet, perhaps it's time to address that in yourself so that you walk around in confidence. It takes courage and risk, but not at the cost you may think.

    Am I overreacting or are they just a jerk? And the woman who is the last to know about the family secret

    Am I overreacting or are they just a jerk? And the woman who is the last to know about the family secret

    Are you just too sensitive or is the other person really being a jerk? I read a follow up email from an episode a few weeks back and answer a question about the difference between being triggered and someone's bad behavior. In segment two, I change it up and talk about child sexual abuse and what might happen when the family secret is found out.

Very incite full

Your podcasts are very inspiring. At age 50 you’d think a person would be stronger within themselves, but some of us still need some “guidance”. These episodes make me take a good look at myself as I always seem to end up in toxic relationships/friendships. I’m working to break this cycle. Thk you for the help & guidance with your podcasts.

Powerful.

I’m hooked to this podcast. I recently started listening to podcast and I haven’t really enjoyed it until I found this podcast by Paul. I love your episodes. Thank you 😀

Discouraging

I couldn’t even get through the first 15 minutes of an episode. If you want to be realistic, then this is for you. But this is not the type of podcast that will encourage you to reach for the stars. Disappointed.
