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)

Good talk and I think it's important and valuable to be honest and open
about our true feelings. However, I struggled a bit with the concept of
"feelings are guides to tell me the next right thing." I think feelings
cannot be trusted as "guides to tell me the next right thing." Example: I
get paid this Friday. I really want and feel strongly that I should
purchase a giant flat screen TV. My wants/desires/feelings guide me to do
just that. Now I don't have the money I need to take care of my kids or pay
all the bills. I know this example may be cheesy, but feelings have a place
in making the "right" decision, but are not as of central importance that
she gives them. Plus, this phrase, "The next right thing" I have heard her
use a lot and it is based not on a moral standard or ethical standard, but
solely on one's personal feelings as a guide. Feelings can betray us and we
should use them cautiously as "guides!"

Yes, good old mental hospitals. I spent some time in one of those and it
was very liberating. After that I didn't become gay, but instead made it
my life's work to chase after women. I spent most of my time doing that,
or else going fishing. Both of my parents disappeared when I was 14, and
so I just raised myself and the three dogs we had at the time. Our house
was quite isolated, so no one new I was alone. I didn't know what happened
to my parents. I still don't. Maybe they were abducted by space aliens or
something. But I still ended up getting married. I would go to bars but
wouldn't drink alcohol. I would have virgin drinks but still get into
terrible rows with guys and the cops would show up, etc. Now I'm an old
man, but I still get into fist fights, just not as many, and I'm divorced
with three dogs and a large tortoise.
So, nice video Glennon. You worried for nothing because you did a fine
job. You do not look at all "Oily". I can't see that. You like clean and
pretty and vibrant. You look healthy and strong, and able to kick the shit
out of the Dilong asshole who wrote below that your video wasn't good. I'm
telling you, he's a total shitforbrains dirtball with no more intellect
than an unborn hamster. May he be brutally murdered by a former mental
patient on crack.

I too was overly sensitive when I was a kid. Mostly due to unstable home I
started to worry and think too much and developed insecurities. This led me
to homosexuality and I became gay- for years trying to find a comfort and
acceptance by being "special" to another man. Years of wrong living took
their toll and it all became too much. And just as this woman said-
starting to talk about all of it and coming out of the closet for me was
the beginning of the healing process. However, the visits to the
psychiatrist showed me that the only one who can really help me was God.
And He did. I was healed of homosexuality, fears and anxieties by Jesus
And she said it well: our feelings are our guides. I learned that they show
me where I am in my head. They are not final and they don't prove anything
-gay feelings do NOT prove someone is gay. They simply point out to what
the person thinks about most of the time. And that can be changed.
Our God is awesome- His LOVE heals.

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!

Donning a mask can be empowering when the intention is subversion. A mask
is a detriment when we lose ourselves, not when we remain true to who we
are and are merely feigning conformity and mocking its pretensions. Why
should everyone deserve our sincerity indiscriminately? People need to earn
our trust. Honesty is a privilege, not a right.

to be honest, I'd say it's school that did that to her. After school is
when she felt better about expressing. She says she got better, as if she
improved on a skill of courage. However, she just is in a better
environment now. Anything is better than high school environment. What I am
taking from this is be good at finding a good environment where you can
open up freely

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.

The so called mental disturbance of an individual begins upon his or her
belief in a "self identity" that is disconneted from all others. And as it
is today, so few recognize their participation in the root of human
suffering, only to continue in the unaware ignorance, pervading further
suffering upon their selves and all others.

Moreover, the road to resolving mental disturbance, however, cannot be an
individual's responsibility alone. Therefore, all conscious beings travel
it together in the realization, or not, that no individual is truly
separate from mankind's collective conscious expression.

Sinisbal your an IDOIT! Being gay is not a "condition" you cure. Also you
are a horrible person, your using a forum where people are sharing their
darkness to help shed light to others who need it. An your here LYING first
off an secondly trying to push your "crutch" onto others. Who don't want
it. If we wanted god (little "g" on purpose) no one would come to TED
talks. Oh an one last thing, if you slept with men an think about sleeping
