As human beings, we lose people - it's a part of life. But what happens when you can't handle the feelings of grief, anger, and more - what happens if you take your pain and project it onto another human being, as if they were an object? Zach Budd of www.consentwarrior.com and on Twitter @black_sexgeek shares his own struggle in standing by as a gay man grieves the loss of his life partner while the family outright rejects him, and how years later we can still explore our relationship to the past, finding insight - and maybe even relief - in letting go of the things that no longer serve us. Whether it's you who struggles with these moments as a trigger or someone you know - we can all use tools to recondition cultural beliefs that aren't realistic or helpful to our personal experience as a human being. It starts with you, so have a journal on hand or a good friend to dialogue with what comes up for you in this episode. And if you can't play with this today? That's okay too. Stay curious. We'll see you later, or in the next episode friend. 🌿
