Slurp! or How I learned to love licking (kind of) – Episode 05

In this episode I get stuck into bad behaviour and why we tolerate it in ourselves towards the people closest to us. I reflect on the dangers of unchecked parenting and the legacies of unaddressed trauma, and the difficulty of putting that stuff to bed.

Finally, I use the Man Cold as a starting point for a reflection on male pain and how humour may irreparably stigmatise it.

And there’s also licking, quite a bit of it.

Excellent Dara, a really great listen. Thanks for sharing & for your openness & honesty – strange but admitting your human is not easy to do!! Can totally relate to the negative “demon” – feels like its sitting on your shoulder when your feeling low. stressed or anxious confirming & adding to all those negative thoughts. Looking forward to the next one, mind & be kind to yourself.
