MBL Minute: Fear And Loving Friendships


Episode Notes


Appealing to someone’s fear will always win in the short term.  It is the easiest emotion to arouse.  Our brain has evolved to scan constantly for potential threats.  It defines a threat as anything related to a past pain.  Pain is a valuable tool that wires the brain to avoid future pain. It works without conscious intent as your brain scans the world for information relevant to our continued survival.


A loving friend would never ask someone to not be themselves.  The actions of a loving friend encourage the inspire us to want to be our most authentic selves.  Learning to lower our walls is the key.  We need to shed the walls of resistance, judgment and attachment to outcome that have been built up over time which separates us from our authentic selves.
