Are you protecting someone, or something, to your own detriment?
We can all train ourselves to believe in something quite strongly. We may adamantly protect a person, a belief or even a dogma, even when such protection proves illogical.
In this podcast, I talk about Stockholm Syndrome, a term coined several decades ago when victims of a Swedish bank robbery curiously protected their own captors, refusing to testify against them in court.
The idea of protecting other people, ideas or even dogmas is universal; it’s part of the human condition. The notion often shows up when we’re part of a religious, peer or group mentality. Within such confines, we often refuse to consider facts or ideas that fall outside the scope of commonly agreed-upon thought.
While we might be open-minded in certain ways, some of us remain highly defensive and protective in others.
Listen in as I explain a few experiences I’ve had in life. See if you can relate and feel more empowered as a result.
Our willingness to open the doors to new light, broader perspectives and alternate ideas not only frees us from hidden fears. It ultimately helps us enjoy greater freedom, harmony and happiness.
Finally, listen in to Casey from Southington, Connecticut talk about what makes her happy from the inside out, too!
