S2E30 - What are you surrounding yourself with? (2 of 3)
As they say, "you are, what you surround yourself with". It's important to understand the content that you are consuming and the information that is conditioning you to become a certain type of person. Are you only consuming one sided information or are you going after both sides of the truth? Although it's easier to consume information that we agree with, it's even more important for you to be able to have a conversation with someone who doesn't agree with you and still be able to defend your beliefs.  Connect with us: Instagram: instagram.com/dealingwithlifestuff/ instagram.com/fdoceballos/ instagram.com/randystreig/ A podcast dedicated to people needing help dealing with life stuff.

S2E29 - Understanding your reality (1 of 3)
In this weeks episode we take a dive into Phenomenology and trying to understand our reality. Sometimes we forget that culture defines our values and fail to realize the power certain words hold. It's important to realize that words mean different things to people, because of the association and power they hold. We can't argue the dictionary definition, but meaning is a different conversation.  Connect with us: Instagram: instagram.com/dealingwithlifestuff/ instagram.com/fdoceballos/ instagram.com/randystreig/ A podcast dedicated to people needing help dealing with life stuff.
