Have you ever told someone something that you had been holding inside? When you got it out, you might've waited to be judged or ridiculed and instead the person proves trustworthy and loving and just nods, and says, "yep...."

That's how I want you to feel after sharing with your friends, with other listeners, or emailing me at somethingbetterpodcast@gmail.com

Shame grows like mold, in the dark, and when you share what you're feeling about not having found love, not feeling the love, or anything else that is holding you back, you liberate yourself.

Thanks so much to all those who have had the guts to let it all out.

I'm glad it is helping. Pass it on!

Just One of the Guys
Guys-look.jpg

Hey Single Girls, is taking your platonic place among a group of guys and joining in the sarcasm and shrugging becoming a place for you to hide your fear of vulnerability? This week I heard from a listener who left messages about her experience of that on the Something Better Google voicemail. (323-999-1536) I called her "Just One of the Guys" and I love her guts-- to freely let it all out on the voicemail and open up out of a genuine willingness to change. Is she alone? I doubt it. If you relate to what you hear, please let me know at somethingbetterpodcast@gmail.com!

 

 

 

 
Good Air

Good Air

I once read that Jerry Seinfeld said he married his wife Jessica because she was “good air”. I loved that- something about her was just breezy, high, good weather. And to me, that was what I was doing when I was sharing my philosophies during yoga classes I taught for many years. I wanted to help everybody get to their good air. My student Michael once came to my Friday 7am telling me that in the middle of the night he had remembered a guy he saw sleeping on Pico Blvd. So in the morning, he made a breakfast sandwich thinking, ‘if he’s there, I’ll give it to him.’ He was. He came to that class so, so happy. That’s good air. We all have stuff and avoiding it is impossible. I am the first to fall down a well of my own self pity and forget others, and forget perspective-but we can still attempt a daily shift. So this week on the podcast, 25 sentiments I’ve carried, learned and discovered that can cultivate "good air" in you- and let’s just say I attend my own lectures.

It's Always Working Out

How do men today really feel inside?

The best part about having a podcast is that when I meet a remarkable and interesting person, I get to invite them to have a conversation with us. That's what happened when I recently met a woman named Nancy and we explored this question about men, among other ideas.

Evan Marc Katz is a dating coach who specializes in helping smart, strong, successful women understand and connect with men.

He's also been married for ten years and has two kids, and recently wrote a blog post called "Why Married Women Get a Raw Deal". I found this piece insightful, rational, and it seemed like a compassionate conversation starter among spouses who want to negotiate enjoying their life. When he told me he got a lot of negative feedback, the conversation took an interesting turn into our current climate, heated by case upon case of abuse and harassment caused by prominent men. Enjoy our chat from the grey area of what seems to be a black and white standoff. To learn more about Evan go to his website.
