What are the ideas, thoughts, and habits that rupture, or interrupt, our ability to feel at home?
Through the lens of my own past addictions to alcohol and crime fiction, I explore the dark side of habits in this episode — the anxious, internal routines and dialogues that we are constantly performing and re-performing to keep ourselves from feeling safe, to suppress our self-expression, and to feel unloved.
Questions we’ll explore in this episode:
- Why do we choose to consume media that makes us feel unsafe?
- How does shame factor into our bad habit, or addiction-oriented, loops?
- Can not feeling at home become a habit? Do we get used to the familiarity of not feeling comfortable?
