On Episode 9, we wrap up the end of 2021 and the end of the first season of Virtuish. We share reflections on our experiences over the last year; what we are paying attention to and learning including healthy coping mechanisms for when we can’t overcome experiences related to anxiety, depression and grief, and what we both believe is the most spiritual thing we can do in our human experience.

Episode 09 talking points:

  • We don’t necessarily need to hold on to an experience to continue/honor its significance.

  • When we are in anxiety or depression, we cannot control the thoughts but we can control the actions.

  • Healthy coping mechanisms do actually help. You can’t think your way out of anxiety, you can’t think your way out of depression. Actions can be the best course. 

  • Being OK with not being OK.

  • The paradox of protection & boundaries; the more protective we become, the more we sometimes suffer.

  • When we stop trying to control everything, that’s when life works with us.

  • The most spiritual thing in the world is just being human. Let it be whatever it’s going to be, let it unfold as they need and want to unfold. Be in the shit, be overwhelmed, be exhausted, be willing.
