Mental Health Monday - destination addiction

"…I started EMDR therapy, and that has been very helpful in identifying negative thought patterns. So if you're suffering from PTSD, anxiety, depression, I hope this perspective maybe will be a little helpful for you. I'll share more about the EMDR therapy as I do more, and if you have any other inspiration, addiction, sort of mental kinds of blocks that keep you from being happy or feeling less stressed. I would love to hear about those. Mine have very much been sort of accomplishment based.…"

"…So I think processing this as generously as you have with us is pretty much part of the process, I think, because finding the language and finding sort of getting out of the shadows of it and coming out into light and being inclusive and hoping that your story helps others, I think that's kind of what life is about in the end of the day. Not that misery loves company in a stuck way.…"

"…I mean, look, bad stuff has happened to me. I got in a terrible car crash in the winter, and I did have what I felt like was brief PTSD, but it didn't last long enough to be qualified as PTSD. I had some hard things happen in my childhood, like we all have. And, yes, my grandma died, and I love and miss her, but I haven't lost a close friend or a parent or a sibling, and I haven't been assaulted.…"

"…How do you feel a sense of inner peace without some kind of drug help? But like I was saying, so I go back and forth between, like, maybe there are certain things on the outside that will actually provide a sense of peace. I wonder.

"…But the idea of manufacturing chaos is I'm trying to flip it in the sense of making it sort of born from story. And story can be sort of deconstructed and realigned. And because you're a storyteller, you're a writer, I thought it would be interesting to sort of create a toolbox where when you do manufacture cast and you identify that, you can, in the same moment, deconstruct that by pulling out the toolbox and saying, okay, I just manufactured this. I created this.…"

"…And I think let's welcome that meme here to the party, or that quote to the party, because I think that's kind of the perfect way to boil this down, that this manufactured chaos and this destination addiction, which creates its own chaos for me is very familiar. Their patterns and things that have been ingrained and developed over decades. And I think in a lot of ways, many of us are probably going back to things that are comfortable even though we know they're not great for us.…"

"…I think there are a lot of instances where I can't live in the moment or I struggle to enjoy what's happening and enjoy my time with people because I'm thinking about what's going to happen next. What stuff do I have to do next? I don't know. It's important to remind yourself that sometimes you can be a little bit mean to yourself and make things worse without even realizing it. I think just pointing that out is the biggest difference.…"
