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)

Автор Sinisbal (2 месяца)
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.

Автор Kevin Bridges (2 месяца)
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!"

I've checked in on her blogging and other online activities. She's standing
on this stage lying to everyone. Of course she may not realize it, but she
is still cowering in a self imposed bubble of pretend. She has no problem
talking about herself and her ideas all day long, but will not accept
criticism in any form if she has the ability to deny it. The only
difference is that she has exchanged praise for booze.

Reviewing the comments I see how harshly judgemental people are. I know in
face to face life, only sociopaths would be that brutal in words or
judgements. And I think of the internet as a place where people feel free
to let their "negative" voices out into the public realm - what in buddhism
is called the "monkeymind." What is interesting is ... this venting
judgementalism and comparative criticism is exactly the type of thinking
that causes addictive behavior in people. People just want to numb their
thoughts - the thoughts that destroy their spirits and confidence in
People "hate" on each other on the internet because the words they say
trigger uncomfortable emotions/thoughts in them. And there are no serious
repercussions to verbally attacking strangers on the internet ... but there
are serious repercussions for using the same sort of attack thoughts
against yourself and others in your life. The question is ... how much of
this self-generated negativity is poisoning our own lives?

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
with men an your a man. YOUR GAY! Regardless of your current situation.
Maybe you should spend some time first with your self an second in a
library. You might learn if you opened your eyes that your lying to

Автор karmakameleon113 (1 месяц)
Good talk (and inspiring, no doubt), but a little on the unrealistic side.
While it may be emotionally beneficial to you personally to accept your own
sensitivity, the world still isn't accepting of people who do, and won't be
for a long time. There's a time and place for it, but sadly, everyday life
doesn't readily provide that time and place. Social norms are (like it or
not) the glue that keeps societies together. The unspoken social agreements
we all enter into are what keep things functional and orderly on a mass
scale. The average person spends a large portion of their time at work or
school, where "taking off the cape", "being fully present with their
feelings", letting slip the mask of being an in-control, emotionally
disciplined (tough), functional person, etc. is completely inappropriate.

Story of my life

Автор Elizabeth Hammer, LMHC, LCPC (1 месяц)
Life can be uncomfortable and messy. There are times when we are not okay.
We may begin to cope in incredibly unhealthy ways, but ways that help to
satisfy us much faster than healthy ways. We may self-medicate, we may
self-harm, we may binge, we may isolate, we may cover up in any and every
way possible the fact that we are not okay. We are given momentary relief
from the life that hurts us, but after all of that, are you relieved? Do
you feel better...for more than a moment? Do you want to? Glennon Doyle
Melton talks about this very subject in her TEDx Talk entitled "Lessons
from a Mental Hospital." Give it a look.
