“Having gone through what I have in my life, I have a responsibility to share my experiences with others. Having been as low as I have been, not even that long ago, that person would not recognize the person I have today, and I want to help others achieve the same thing. ”
– Shaun Karim
Shaun Karim shares his own journey dealing with narcissistic abuse and domestic abuse against men with his podcast Intentionally Emotive.
Shaun Karim felt that there was something missing in the array of podcasts that just didn’t just quite fit what he was looking for in his listening experiences and decided to become a podcaster and fix exactly that void that he had found. As a man who has experienced an abusive upbringing, he tended to mirror those kinds of relationships as he got older, often ending up in abusive relationships. Men as survivors of domestic abuse are not talked about enough.
As Shaun progressed through therapy and his own healing, he decided that he wanted to use his experiences to help others, especially men, in similar situations. As he has been able to overcome so much and continues to follow that as an ongoing journey, he felt part of his place in this world was to share these experiences, help others feel less alone, and perhaps give them a place to begin their own healing journeys. Intentionally Emotive, the name itself, was specifically chosen as Shaun has always had the best outcomes in his life when he truly connected with what he wanted to achieve. In a world where we are all trying to live more mindfully, where we are learning more about faith and how to attract things in life, “Intentionally Emotive” just felt perfect.
Shaun’s aim is to help create a way for others to understand that their own personal traumas, all of the things that they have been through in life, are not their fault. Many people with abuse in their lives may incorrectly place blame on themselves. Shaun feels that the only way to unlock that is to push that ‘reset’ button and fall into the person who you are, and get rid of the character that you used to be. It’s not an overnight solution, but it’s absolutely achievable, and he tries to help his listeners jumpstart that pathway in their own lives.
Shaun has been homeless when he was at a very difficult time in his life. No job, hardly any money, living off of two hot dogs for $1.49 split up throughout four days. It took several years, but his faith was reignited and he would hand his impossible circumstances to Him and He always would always take care of him at the perfect time. He understands that he is not here by accident, but because he has a purpose to help others who are where he has already been.

About Shaun Karim
Shaun Karim was born and raised in Los Angeles, California. Throughout his life, he encountered different forms of abuse and carried that trauma for decades. It became part of his identity in his relationships with other people and himself. Shaun suffered through depression and anxiety for decades, was in relationships with narcissists, was a victim of domestic violence, and was afraid of what may come in his future.
It was at his lowest moments when he had a choice–to continue with his family’s script and give up or to take a leap of faith and write his own future. In his long and arduous journey, along with professional help, he learned the origins of his trauma and, more importantly, what he could do to overcome all of it. Shaun is a mental health advocate who understands the pitfalls that toxic thinking and toxic people that are imposed on others, and he understands the “mental reset” that needs to take place.
