The Art of Masculinity

Feb 8, 2023

On this episode, we talked about:

Different types of traumas
Having meaning attached to our minds
Having  the feeling, not the cognitive memory
Being able to wipe off the meaning
Washing away the guilt and shame
Not going back through pain
You don't have to stay in pain
Saying nice things to yourself
How much energy are we putting into trying to be kind to ourselves?
Blaming failures on people that we have fail
People often use the word "I"
People feel like they are the enemies
Finding out how the unconscious understand things
Addressing the issues that you have
The responsibility comes with power

"One thing that our minds can do that no other life form can do is store information in a way that it can remain"


"If you're alive before any trauma, you want that battle in life"


"Most treatment for veterans is based on an old model that suggests that the only way out of pain is into pain"
