What do highly sensitive, intuitive, and empathic men think? How do they behave in the world? Why are they sometimes overlooked and misunderstood? What a great way to introduce Adam Clark who is joining our podcast network in 2018 with his own show Animals on the Mind!

We do talk about animals but the topic here is what a conversation is like with a deeply caring, high emotional I.Q., and communicative male. It’s refreshing but can also be unchartered territory for some people.

We talk about it all: romantic relationships, the current headlines around sexual harrassment, “friend zoning”, friendships – no stone left unturned!

Timing. This article was sent to our team from several listeners of the show. It does not diagnose anyone with Narcissistic Personality Disorder. It simply highlights in pointed detail the hurt and pain caused by a highly narcissistic mother. As we posted more information about this we expected a bit of backlash. We received nothing but thanks from people all over the globe.

Jaime Grace joins us from his counseling practice in Portugal to discuss his work and his own maternal relationship that spawned this article.

How many of you have felt triggered reading and hearing about the Harvey Weinstein allegations? Many of our listeners have. We have. We support the #metoo movement spearheaded by actress Alyssa Milano and have a very powerful discussion with host Kristin Sunanta Walker, Melanie Vann, and Melissa Richards about sexual misconduct and abuse.

We’ve learned that while the abuser and society may wish to paint those who come forward as people who:

Can’t seem to “move on” or “let things go”

Are vitriolic

Are unfair

Are “crazy”

Are only women

This is simply not the case. Uncomfortable topics need to be discussed. Every victim and then survivor of sexual harassment has their own journey to recovery. As you evolve, your voice and understanding of what you experienced changes. It does not disappear.

Being quiet supports the abuser not the abused. It also supports those who enable and act as accomplices to the abusers.

This is not gender specific.

The days of “men are just men” are over.

For Good.

Thank you for joining us on this poignant and deeply personal show.
