Episode 43: What is Pain?

Season #1

What gets people 'into Dr. Doug's office' is a sense of aloneness. Humans are wired for attachment. Every cell in our bodies is connected to the cells next to it. Separation creates pain. A cut to the skin is separation that creates pain, just as separation from other humans creates pain. Today we take a deep dive into the pain of isolation, the difference between pain and fear, and the realization by many of our Driven community members that the fear and avoidance of pain that got us to where we are isn't going to get us to where we want to go. We can confront that pain, appreciate that it is evidence of love, and know it's wisdom.
