podcast reflects on the myth of "normal"

I am not a normal addict, as I wrote in my blog Hi I'm Ming-Wai, and My Problems Aren't Real Problems, and Dr. Gabor Maté and Rich Roll do an amazing job breaking the problem down in this podcast. Our childhood trauma, our culture, our values are shaping the way we struggle and survive in our current lives.

This reflection without blame but instead reflection with love, compassion, and humanity gives a beautiful shift in my perspective on how I am working to show up in this life and how we all cope differently with trauma.

One of my tools is Compassionate Inquiry coaching, which was developed by Dr. Gabor Maté, and his perspective just makes sense to me.

With love,


P.S. This podcast focuses on addiction, but he also has a great book titled Scattered based on the same premise but focused on ADD and ADHD.
