    When loved ones reject your reality and replace it with their own

    When loved ones reject your reality and replace it with their own

    Your mental health is too important to let those in denial ignore your suffering and invalidate your experience. The solution to someone's ignorance could be to put the harsh truth in their face. Or it could be to just accept that some people will always be blissfully unaware or in full denial. Acceptance that you can't get through to everyone might be the one reality you can rely on.

    Feeling crazy because you don't have the answers

    Feeling crazy because you don't have the answers

    There are a lot of unknowns in life. Some unknowns have answers, some don't. Some do, but the person who knows the answers won't share them with you. How do you deal with the limbo state you might get in when you want the answers but can't get them, and may never get them?

    You can't walk around in frustration, confusion, and limbo all the time. There has to be a doorway out of those states and it's time to find that door and walk through it.

    Sometimes facing yourself is the only way change happens

    Carrying around emotional baggage weighs you down. It's no way to live. Yet millions of people do live this way. Carrying this kind of weight around with you all your life can keep you from happiness, at least to the extent that it could be experienced if you were able to process and release that old baggage.

    In this episode, I talk about some of the concepts of self-care and personal growth to help you start the journey of letting go of what no longer serves you.

    The pain you sometimes need to go through to increase your quality of life

    The pain you sometimes need to go through to increase your quality of life

    The level of happiness & fulfillment you feel on a day to day basis can change based on many factors. One of those factors has to do with the ability to make hard decisions that may involve big changes that you're not ready to face.

    The fear & pain associated with change can often prevent us from doing what we need to do to increase our quality of life. However, sometimes the lesson is that in order to reach a higher level of satisfaction in life, it might involve scary steps you don't want to take.

I feel so much more "normal" now

Before I started listening to your show about a year ago I really thought that some of the things I thought about were insane and that my thoughts and view of the world were very skewed! But your topics and discussions about so many events and feelings close to my heart have made me realize we all have doubts, fears, heartaches, stresses, childhood complexities, tears, insecurities etc and that it's pretty normal to question the world and the people around us. You've made me realize that as long as I am growing and trying to better myself- I'm on the right path. Thank you so much Paul. So grateful.

You are saving my marriage

Thank you Paul for your podcast. My husband and I both have childhood trauma, and that makes our marriage challenging at times. Because of his childhood, my husband fears being vulnerable and struggles to say I love you. Your podcast has helped me to see that he has numerous actions that show that he loves me, and the lack of the words may hurt, but it doesn’t mean that the love is not there. Thank you for helping me to see this.
