Random Thoughts From A Therapist

Random Thoughts From A Therapist

Avatar
By Kurt LaRose and TalkifUwant
Random thoughts from a therapist, an expert in clinical hypnosis, a counselor and an author by trade taking a view that is not about right, wrong, good or bad. Here Kurt LaRose (from TalkifUwant.com) attempts to move away from black or white thinking where absolutist binds CAN aid in "mental illness" formulation. There is good in all of us - where matters of safety are exceptions. From religion, sex, politics, love, death, moms, dads and "just life" - something here may tickle your biases a bit. Using snark, with new and old psychobabblejabble - this is my voice. TalkifUwant.com

"Good" and "bad" where most double binds emerge.
As people go about judging this and that as good or bad the double bind emerges where no matter what you or they choose something will be wrong. Here when the bind is rooted in "good and bad" ways of thinking exaggerated emotional responses appear. As bad is always somewhere then so will fight and flight appear where real and tangible danger erupts. Changing the view from good and bad to something that includes the good intentions of nearly everyone who acts, might be a bit more akin to reality. "Good and bad", "right and wrong", these may create the binds that build exaggerated responses. Is "good and bad" normal? Statistically 51 of 100 makes anything normal. The better question may be is it healthy?

Dad's give something to everyone. Known or not Dad is a player in life. Science might explain.
A holiday in American Culture about dear old dad - may stir for many things other than affection. How this happens can be viewed not only in the environment of a present or an absent father figure. And patriarchy will not resolve the connections either. Seeing that science offers up a bit of trust and care in the life cycle, from the making of babies (however that occurs) to curious connections can move us from issues of attachment and abnormal longings - to something as hormonal as the biological equivalence to "love." Whatever dad gave or didn't he may be one part if what makes you...you... and what makes you love. And to be clear, moms do too!

Pride has been villified as a concept long enough. Interestingly, healthy people have a bit of it!
The enthusiasm of a changing culture is cool, even if slow and gradual. Ironically the gradual emergent sense of pride is a delay of health. Why resist something that indicates growth, health and wholeness?

All people believe in something: a mental health perspective on faith.
The controversial topics to NOT discuss in "mixed company" like politics, faith and sex ....ARE discussed! Here a mental health expert takes a shot at all of them. Why? If you can get through sex, voting and religion in three segments of a podcast then the rest will be easy. An outside of the box view of right and wrong begins here ... #talkifuwant

Did Mueller do a good job for $30,000,000? Where could that money be now?
As the flare of arguments and causes builds and as the positioning and posturing takes form allot of money that could be helping you and I is being spent on the "sum of nothing. " If we stop funding the sides of red and blue the machines will change. And if we instead started funding and donating to us - "we the people" will grow.
