Reality what is it good for?
I've been feeling a little uneasy lately because I am not sure what is real and what is a whole bunch of nonsense produced by the highest powers. There is clearly a pandemic. I know of a few people that got COVID-19 but not really anyone that died. I have heard a lot about death on the news and read article after article keeping up with the news. Some of the smartest people in the world are belittled when some of the most powerful people ignore reality.
One of my goals while waiting for that big break is to make friends with authors and content providers that I find helpful. I consider myself a reasonable human without a lack of empathy or clear disregard for logic. I fear that society is getting away from what is real and moving to promote just what sells. During one of my moments of disgust toward the current situation, I googled "10 steps on how to deal with someone that doesn't accept reality" in hopes to understand how I can feel better about someone else's problem.
Check out the article with some cool video effects from musicvid.org because the straight video is a little boring. I also like to put s little background music ever since I started podcasting as I find that it adds a little to the flow of the readings. Be sure to check out my little review of the article along with a critique of some comments after the video.
After finding the article I emailed Dr. Nancy Colier to be sure I can reproduce the article via voiceover without any copyright issues and the idea was well-received. I am excited to share the information and also happy that I have a little psychology in my portfolio. The original article Accepting a Reality that Feels Unacceptable is part of the series of blog posts on psychologytoday.com titled Inviting A Monkey to Tea. Also, check out all of the books available from Dr. Colier on Amazon.com and see how they can be helpful in your life.
