Thoughtful Thursday
An introvert guide and manifesto for all the quiet ones—and the people who love them.  "Is there a hidden part of you that no one else sees? Do you have a vivid inner world of thoughts and emotions that your peers and loved ones can’t seem to access? Have you ever been told you’re too “quiet,” “shy,” “boring,” or “awkward”? Are your habits and comfort zones questioned by a society that doesn’t seem to get the real you? If so, you might be an introvert."

MyNDTALK - Grief and Recovery - Candyce Ossefort Russell

Loss can be brutal. Grief can be agonizing. And when you're grieving, everyone has an opinion \ about how you're supposed to make your way through the experience of loss. Even you might have ideas about how your grief process ought to go. Almost everyone thinks there's a correct way to grieve. But that's simply not true. What is true is that our society is death-phobic, and our collective fear of facing death and loss perpetuates some hurtful falsehoods about grief, like "grief takes a certain amount of time," or you need to do specific "grief work" to be okay." Candyce shares her personal journey and professional experiences during this conversation on MyNDTALK.

MyNDTALK - Nurture the Wow - Rabbi Danya Ruttenberg

Every day, parents are bombarded by demands. The pressures of work and life are relentless; our children’s needs are often impossible to meet; and we rarely, if ever, allow ourselves the time and attention necessary to satisfy our own inner longings. Parenthood is difficult, demanding, and draining. And yet, argues Rabbi Danya Ruttenberg, if we can approach it from a different mindset, perhaps the work of parenting itself can offer the solace we seek.

MyNDTALK - Another Kind of Madness - Stephen Hinshaw

A deeply personal memoir calling for an end to the dark shaming of mental illness.

Families are riddled with untold secrets. But Stephen Hinshaw never imagined that a profound secret was kept under lock and key for 18 years within his family--that his father's mysterious absences, for months at a time, resulted from serious mental illness and involuntary hospitalizations. From the moment his father revealed the truth, during Hinshaw's first spring break from college, he knew his life would change forever.

Hinshaw calls this revelation his "psychological birth." After years of experiencing the ups and downs of his father's illness without knowing it existed, Hinshaw began to piece together the silent, often terrifying history of his father's life--in great contrast to his father's presence and love during periods of wellness. This exploration led to larger discoveries about the family saga, to Hinshaw's correctly diagnosing his father with bipolar disorder, and to his full-fledged career as a clinical and developmental psychologist and professor.
