In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

I'm not fine today. (thanks for helping me feel like I had permission to
say that.)

Автор Brittany Landers (1 месяц)
I think this is a beautiul, honest, raw message. It really touched me. I
feel a lot of these things- particularly wearing the capes, hiding,
pretending etc.- although not due to addiction but due to anxiety and a
feeling of needing to run away from the mess of life.

OMG This woman really knows what she's talking about. Brilliant video.

Автор Katie Boardman (1 месяц)
I have had enough of hiding
I have had enough of hiding
I am coming out
To tell the story of who I am

There are no rules
And there are no closed doors

Every day
I feel piercing joy
And excruciating pain

I feel lost
And like a traveller without a road

Sometimes I even run away
Or dream up other ways
To escape

And then I feel shame

I feel dirty
Like nothing
Like nothing

I hurt the ones I love
Before they can hurt me

Then the monster inside
Turns in on itself

It is not good
To look in the mirror
At these times
But perhaps it is best

Because there is no point in hiding
There is no point in running
There is nowhere to run
Nowhere to hide
So it is time
To show myself

By showing that I am broken
You will be free
To show you are broken too

But my brokenness makes your squirm
At first
Because you are broken too

I think honestly,
What is the point in being alive
If we are not giving
Our whole selves
To this world?

What is the point in hiding
When we can be alive?

What is the point in pretending
When we are all human?
Those who are real
Simply embrace their humanity.

When we show up
As we are
No walls
No masks

We expose the wound
That has been festering
And infected

We give it the air
Of love and acceptance
So it may heal

It is a lonely world that hides
And passes its loneliness
From generation to generation

Let us give each other
The gift of showing
The gift of being you
The gift of being me
And the gift of truly knowing
Who we are

Автор Michelle Ferguson (4 месяца)
This is the reason I enjoy being a therapist in an inpatient psychiatric
unit, is because people are real - the masks are down.

"People think of us addicts as insensitive liars. But we don't start out

I think that is a really true statement.......2:52-3:55 is really good for
friends and family members of struggling people to hear.

You reading this, you are an amazing person and you are the best that you

Автор Sick Maths (16 дней)
Wow, thank you so much. I've been through hell and back and through my
private conversations with so many "normal, successful" people, I know you
are one of crazy messed up people. The west is particularly confused,
because we have been so out of touch with truth and nature. The only way
out is painful humility. And it will get better. If you're in touch with
your natural self you will be confident, relaxed but it will take a few
years to "thaw out" as Glennon explained. I live in the middle east, in
Jordan, having moved from London a few months ago. People here keep it real
because they have kept (kind of) what people in the west hate... guess what
that is?

about Borderline Personality Disorder for the Cosmo magazine website and

it - so many shares! Here's to oily, awkward people speaking out in this
messy ol' world ;)

Автор Gilbert1776 (22 дня)
Thank you for bravely helping to carve just a little more space in the
world for us all to just be real and human. There is precious little, so
afraid are people of the pain and uncontrollable things of real life.
Anesthetize and mask the brutal, and you dull and extinguish the beautiful,
too. They come together.

Автор Joydivider1 (1 месяц)
An excellent and very moving talk! I like people who express their feelings
in this way and as well as this.

Well done you, because you get to the root of what its all about. The
way our institutions are set up its often hard to feel as though you
belong. Social engineering but thats for another time.
I can relate to the anxiety and the capes which everyone wears to some

Lessons from the Mental Hospital | Glennon Doyle Melton | TEDxTraverseCity:

I am a guy . . . its even more of a challenge for men to deal w/ feelings .
. . because we are supposed to "man up" and get over it. Watching the TED
talk was encouraging because some of the same concepts apply to men as
well, even while we are "manning up". We have out fears that we need to
face and overcome. One of my heroes, Jim Rhone also admonished us to let
all of the emotions in and not block them out. . . They will guide us to
change the world!

Автор Shanda Trent (3 месяца)

a life without God is empty. 

Автор Sarina Lee (1 месяц)
Share my review here:

If you keep your experience simple, you won't face any mental mess.
But if you want to be enlightened in life. You must come out from your own
shell, and experience the messy world. There are risks in that.
Some strong ones went through the whole thing, awakening, successfully hold
a well balanced heart and mind. They elevated consciousness from their
journey. Reach to true happiness.
However, there are many people who failed on that journey, they got
overwhelmed by all the complexity, they fail to balance their mind and
That's the mental issues we talk about.
Mental disease is not far from us.
We all fight for mental pressure from time to time in our life, but the
weak/sensitive one has made it to clinic level.

If you happen to meet a bad person, forgive them, just think them as a
vulnerable sick person who needs compassion and support.
Welcome to the Thunderdome! Be graceful!

“There will be, in the next generation or so, a pharmacological method of
making people love their servitude, and producing dictatorship without
tears, so to speak, producing a kind of painless concentration camp for
entire societies, so that people will in fact have their liberties taken
away from them, but will rather enjoy it, because they will be distracted
from any desire to rebel by propaganda or brainwashing, or brainwashing
enhanced by pharmacological methods. And this seems to be the final
revolution” Aldous Huxley

Letting herself feel her feelings is essential for improving. However, she
could've gotten further and faster with desensitizing methods such as EFT,
Sedona Method, etc. She'd probably need a facilitator to lead her through
the process effectively.

was a breakdown of examples that life is Hard and that accepting it through
the resistance of running or quitting, and facing those hardships win or
lose instead is jhe true essence and beauty of life. She broken it down,
great vid
