Forced to Re-Choose: How do we take care of ourselves and others?



What do we do with our feelings during times of transition and trauma? Do we choose how we feel? Should we shut our feelings up? How do we make choices when fear, anger and frustration bubble up? How do we respond to this kind of shake up in our systems?

COVID, Coronavirus, quarantine, shelter at home, economic crashes and an abrupt halt to millions of jobs brings up really intense feelings. What do we do with this anxiety, fear, anger and trauma?

In this podcast, I talk about how attempting to control our feelings lead to destructive behaviors toward ourselves and others. When we tell our emotions to shut up we lean toward addiction, shaming ourselves for perfectly natural and valid responses to danger. We are not imagining the danger to our livelihoods and the abrupt transitions we are making in our economy.

This is a time of re-choosing. So how do we re-choose? How do we make the transitions required in the way we work, the way we think, the way we vote and the way we get our needs met.

This podcast challenges conventional wisdom, old paradigms and beliefs that are no longer practical or helpful in the way we live today in 2020. When faced with a dramatic halt, how do we know which way to go? When faced with forced change how do we deal with our personal emotions and kindness to others?

How are global resources distributed and it is sustainable, helpful or beneficial? With all the fake news, agendas, corporate misleading and mistrust how do we know what to believe or which way to vote?

With new information, new science, new discoveries how do we interpret what the Golden Rule is? Why are we using outdated information to determine our impact on the world? How can we dump trigger words like Love or “Do Unto Others” when they are no longer useful in centering our values and behavior?
