Summary:
Men have held women down for generations. The tide is turning and there will be casualties. As men we can resist or assist. Main thing is to be aware.

Long Version:
I tell stories of my youth and my troubles with women authority figures who seemed to constantly punish me physically & mentally.

I tell stories of the war that’s been happening between men and women. I think us men are unaware that women are kinda stronger than us and have been waging guerrilla warfare for a long time.

I tell stories of alpha indian females I’ve run into my whole life and how they’ve been demolishing all men in their path, beginning with their husbands.

“You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. The danger lies in refusing to face the fear, in not daring to come to grips with it. You must make yourself succeed every time.
You must do the thing you think you cannot do.”

– Eleanor Roosevelt

I had a jury duty summons in November 2014.
Did not go because I was super depressed with seasonal affective disorder, anxiety & other mood issues.

Postponed it for 3months. And instead went to a bunch of doctors, therapists and took a road trip to sunny houston.

Fast forward to January 2015, the dreaded summons was back.
Had no choice but to go this time.

Reminded me of the same jury duty in 2012 when I went and had a super anxious time.

Sup.

Sharing a story of something I thought I’d never do in life.

Going to a movie solo.
And actually enjoying it.
That’s exactly what happened on Friday when I happily went to go see the Hobbit by myself.

In 2008, I was doing some odd experiments to get over my anxiety. I got this dude to help me out. Like going to a bar by myself, sit there without drinking alcohol nor looking at my phone, then leave. Walking inside starbucks in a circle, 10 times, to see if anyone would say anything. Going to malls and doing EFT tapping techniques. Driving to downtown chicago to the busiest restaurant and eating solo.

I was able to do all of these tasks with much difficulty.
The only thing I couldn’t (wouldn’t) do was go to a movie solo.

I was able to get into the flow the past few days and I let you in on the details.

PS: Using my yeti mic again + audacity + did some post editing to make the pod tighter and sound better. Hope it worked! [Click here to read more, dude…]

I didn’t feel like recording a podcast.
So I sat down to record a podcast.
Bill Burr is my hero for pumping out consistent weekly solo podcasts.

Story about my acid reflux, a dream warning, and what I learned

The right dose matters.
-How 3 lightboxes works better for me than 1 for seasonal affective disorder (LINK)
-Also talk about my experience with high doses vitamin c

Why I think most therapists suck.
I’ve been to 11-15 therapists since 2001. Male, female, young & old.
Most of them are average folks doing an average job.
They don’t cure anything.
It’s you going to a person to talk every week for years at a time and paying way too much for minimal results.
Best option is to educate yourself and do as much exploration & self help as possible.

The goal in life is to find alignment.
How each of us has our own river, our goal is to find which way it’s flowing, and to go downstream rather than upstream.
