Behind the Mic

There is more to me than being a psychotherapist or a Boundaries class instructor.  I have been successful at both of these endeavors and enjoyed them thoroughly but I sometimes feel like a flamethrower being housed neatly in its box on a polished shelf.  I have become weary of behaving nicely and following all the “rules.”  Those who are close to me know I’ve never claimed to be nice.  I created this podcast as a platform to cut loose, make my own rules, say what I want, and hopefully find a few others with similar experiences.  If you are offended by what I say, follow someone else’s podcast.  For everyone else, enter at your own risk.

“Some things benefit from shocks; they thrive and grow when exposed to volatility, randomness, disorder, and stressors and love adventure, risk, and uncertainty. Yet, in spite of the ubiquity of the phenomenon, there is no word for the exact opposite of fragile. Let us call it antifragile. Antifragility is beyond resilience or robustness. The resilient resists shocks and stays the same; the antifragile gets better.”

–as excerpted from Nassim Taleb’s Antifragile

An example of antifragility is the Hydra, a Greek mythological creature who grows two heads when one is severed. When attacked, it becomes stronger.
