Ep 91. Difficult People

If you’ve been listening to the podcast you know logically that other people do not have the control over our emotions that we tend to believe they do. But why is it so difficult to remember this? Why does it feel like they absolutely do make us feel things? Today we’re taking a closer look at “difficult people” in particular and I’m giving you some specific examples and concrete steps to try out to minimize the impact of any difficult people in your life. You ready? Let’s do it.

Ep 89. What’s Fueling Your Action?

Today I’m talking to you about the action that you take in your life. When there is a problem to solve or a goal you want to reach, I’m all for taking action…but first I want you to pay attention to the emotions that are fueling your action. The emotions fueling you will determine how effective your action is and what the result is that you get from that action. I want your fuel to be as empowering as possible. Tune in today for more explanation and specific examples.

Ep 88. Automated Blessings From God

PS – After publishing this episode we got a lot of questions from people wanting clarification about whether or not some viewing of pornography (or masturbation) is not wrong given that the LDS church has typically taken a position of abstaining from such activities rather than a position of moderation. Here is her response:

“I don’t believe that viewing pornography is valuable to development, only that being too heavy-handed or shaming of it (in a culture where sexual imagery is pervasive) as being counter-productive and creating more sexual obsessiveness in a developing adolescent (i.e. the more anxiety kids have about seeing pornographic imagery, the more likely they are to find it arousing, be drawn to it, and seek it out).  We tend to eroticize the forbidden.  It is more valuable to be straight forward with kids about a problematic industry of porn, while demonstrating a celebration and comfort with the human body and with committed, loving sexuality.

With masturbation, I think we can teach an ethic of moderation and self-control without shaming.  The church has taken the language of masturbation out of the “For The Strength of Youth” handbook.  I think that is because too much focus and anxiety around not ever masturbating again backfires and creates more trouble than it solves.  I think the more valuable focus should be on what you are trying to create in your life (someone capable of sexual commitment and intimacy with a spouse), exercising self control along with self-compassion toward that end.”
