Also a woman writes in feeling guilty she doesn't love being with her mom on Mother's Day. A girl wants to know how to maintain a relationship with her Bi-Polar father.

This episode I get deep on a talk given by Alan Watts. He references Carl Jung and his "Element of Irreducible Rascality" - meaning Jung was a fully integrated deep ass bro who accepted all parts of his emotional world. He had a rascally twinkle in his eye because he accepted what was guilty, shameful and anxious in himself. Being someone who has all these feelings, I'd like to know how it's possible to feel all these things and not get all wound up over it. Also, why are people rude to wait staff? Jung may have some insight into that as well. Let's get deeeeeeep on it, bros.

This holiday season, I'm most thankful for my therapist. I have a breakthrough regarding my neurotic need to stop being like my parents. I explore the idea of "creating what we defend against" from the Course in Miracles. Also, what does it mean to live small and how do we not do that in 2017? I saw Star Wars and love the Orphan Mythology - how powerful the theme is and how it can be applied to our lives. Also, more on drinking the Motherhood Kool-Aid. I drank more of that shit and found myself deep down a rabbit hole of maternal insecurity. There's so much to get deep on, you may wanna just put on a black turtleneck and beret to listen.

My whole life, I've wanted to violently beat anyone who chalks up shitty behavior to the phrase "but what IS normal?" Despite the psychological community's insistence that there is no norm, I think there is. If you've grown up in a dysfunctional home, you know for a fact there IS a "normal" and it probably involves not getting hammered and throwing plates of food at each other. In this episode I discuss the traits of adult children of Alcoholics - but I have a feeling you don't need a drunk Mommy or Daddy to relate to a lot of this stuff.
