Above Ground Podcast #187: Low Self Opinion

The view of ourselves is shaped by many things. It is formed by our nurture. It is exacerbated by culture. It can elevate our egos or destroy our self esteem. Social media escalates the self-hate war with weapons of mass distraction and the algorithms only feed you a steady diet of doubt, fear and lack.  Is it any wonder that so many of us are walking around with a low self opinion? I don’t think so. Let’s open the meat jacket and see. 

Welcome to Episode 187 of Above Ground Podcast. This week we riff on low self opinion – where it could start, how we can face it and create self esteem. This week’s title was inspired by none other than Henry Rollins and the track from the Rollins Band album, “The End of Silence.” That’s us here, silent no more. When Henry screams, ”unable to express the pain of your distress, you withdraw deeper inside,” it takes you by your shirt and throws you into the pit of self knowledge. But, in order to get to the philosopher’s stone, we need introspection and a language to describe what it is we are really searching for. Let’s get in the circle and do the work.
