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)

Present" at TruthContest◙Com*

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.

You are amazing! I can so identify with the terror. Just wrote a piece
about Borderline Personality Disorder for the Cosmo magazine website and
wanted to hide in bed for a week after it was published. But so glad I did
it - so many shares! Here's to oily, awkward people speaking out in this
messy ol' world ;)

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 Mark Leopold (2 месяца)
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 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

Автор Jon Haaland (15 часов)
im sorry michelle ferguson, but your position at an inpatient psych ward is
no different than an SS officer sneaking bits of bread to prisoners during
the holocaust.....the SS officer feels good helping those made weak, he
cant help them escape or he will be right beside them, a prisoner
himself....just like you, michelle ferguson cant abolish psychiatry and its
"units" or can you......theres one way to find out...... Quit for the
onlooker is as much to blame as the "doer" There should not exist
a position such as yours to feel good about in the first place..........

disabuse yourself.

Psychiatry is approaching full fledged Eugenics, if it has not already

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!

My cape is kindness...

I'm angry, all day everyday.

I really have no sort of sympathy at all. My grandma has a heart problem,
and I don't care. But I put myself on as someone who does. My grandfather's
wife passed away, and I could care less. I only feel sorrow for those I
truly and deeply love, that my faith and loyalty is put up against every
single day. ... that's pretty much no one. Unless, were talking about guys.
Not like girls that are ALL OVER THEM, have different boyfriends every day,
or like drool over them...

I like guys for that reason. I'm attached to them more because of that,
they don't cAre about drama.

Going back - I need someone to help me out. With this, because I'm to
afraid to tell my friends and family, because they're so used to that veil
of kindness that I wear... so they won't believe me. I've tried once, and
they pawned it off as a sham of some sort. I'm 12, so if course I'm not
going to get a physciciatrist or anything! I need some friendly advice...
that all.

So please, put your idiot negativity away for now, and help a gal out.

And yeah I admit this was a little much. I just have things bottled up that
need to be released.
