2/2...”How did she know I spent a ton of time writing?) "Now let's say that instead, you had to spend all that time in soccer and Kumon." Sports and worksheets: two things I dislike and don't do well at. "You'd be anxious," she concludes. "You'd be depressed."

1/2 “In psychological terms, "adults are saying, 'Here's the environment. I've already mapped it. Stop exploring,'" says Sarnecka. "But that's the opposite of what childhood is. Imagine yourself as a kid—all the time you were spending being a burgeoning writer."

Thanks for sharing. Always important to have fully rounded arguments and not to get stuck in the mud. I don’t know much about Bernard Lane. Care to share more?

Today I’m grateful for: - walks in the foggy but sun drenched woods with family -🚴 fast down hill. Brings such joy to little & big kids. - eggs. I eat about 4 a day and they fuel me up for high energy days.

I like this one particularly. I recall in my training as a therapist one of the trainers recalling telling a client who was a chronic perfectionist (to their own detriment) something along the lines: “who do you think you are, that you, unlike everyone else,can be perfect?”

Ah man...👊 I’ve been told the same, as I’m sure many others here have. Needless to say there will be people who really appreciate your depth. You are not here to cater to the tastes of other, but to be who you need to be for yourself.

Starting a new practice. Today I’m grateful for... - late afternoon nap with my sweet 7 month old. - the dog for making me and all the kids howl with laughter by jumping into the running bath. - the Christmas tree.

Going to try and forage some mistletoe with my toddler. Will let you know how it goes 😬😬😬. I could easily buy some, but there’s something rather magical about finding it in the wild. Something about gratefulness & work.

That’s also true. I was referring to his character that generally leans to being more disagreeable than agreeable. He doesn’t mind stepping on toes. It’s actually something I quite like about him!

Bold thoughts 💗 It is much kinder to help this person own their issues rather than cater to dysfunction.

He goes out of his way (unconsciously or not) to address the issues other people don’t talk about - perhaps to add himself in as a counterpoint. This is healthy culturally to create nuanced, complex understandings - which for some reason we don’t tolerate very well at the moment.

He’s unapologetic about his message - that’s boys/ men are having a hard time of it right now. This message is not culturally on point. He’s also pretty disagreeable (as he admits himself) so he doesn’t mince his words so the combination of the two is pretty potent.

He’s never been transphobic. He has however challenged compelled speech on the basis of freedom of speech. You’re spreading misinformation.

1 in 8 Millennials Are Virgins at 26. This isn’t something that’s talked about much. I’ve had plenty of clients who feel shame & fear because they haven’t lost their virginity yet. To all of you in these shoes: you’re not alone & you’re not broken.

This is you owning your truth..& that may in some small way be a part of your healing process.

Much of what is worthwhile seems to be hard. Or is that it’s also worth it because it’s hard to come by? Probably a bit of both.
