"One that Helen Keller had, too. It does sneak in. It does show up in certain places. It's really hard. She bumped into it as she began to build her new life in Seattle. It could come up when she was job hunting, or when she was inviting a new love interest over to her apartment for a home cooked meal. She said that voice can blur in the kitchen with me and tell me that I'm not good at cooking and every time that voice comes up. She's to choose to ignore it. I'm still working through it. It's the.

"Had been told that no one would want her. And this was actually the first moment that Elsa said, and I get that. Because she was like, 'cause I, in some deep, hard place in me, feel that. Too. Being a burden is the thing that I struggle with the most. It started for me as just being scared that I was going to be too much for people. But as I learned more about the world, and I think as Helen Keller learned more about the world. I learned more about the ways that I was viewed as a person. And maybe it's not said about you directly, but people talk about disabled people being burdensome society all the time. Social security is a burden. Medicare is a burden. And those things stack up in your mind. Elsa said this moment in our reporting journey was a huge turning point for her because she finally realized just how badly Helen Keller thought about herself..

"I was horrified. I actually had one of those moments where your blood kind of runs cold. And it was shortly after reading that that the whole TikTok conspiracy theory bubbled up into her world. And so she found herself newly resistant to defend Helen Keller. I see. But also wanting to call out the TikTokers for saying things that were not true, and so she came to us authentically lost. Wanting to use reporting to figure out both how to feel about Helen Keller in her own heart. But also to just legitimately understand how Helen Keller came to want to remove disability from.

"Day. Humanity is one O one and one O two. Dancing swing, a tango, by night, you know, living her anti Helen Keller dream life. When one morning, in the fall of 2019, Helen Keller reappears in her life in the strangest way. My routine was that every morning I would walk into the student center with my guide dog and pick up a coffee or tea at the school cafe. And there was one of those little bookshelves with free books on it that you can grab underneath the bar while you're ordering your coffee. And I remember very clearly my guide dog was like nosing at the shelf. I was waiting for my tri latte, and I'm like, what are you doing? Can you please stop trying to eat books? And then according to her, he knows is this one book of the shelf. It's a great deal cover. It's very 1970s. And when she brings it up closer to her eyes, she realizes it's the miracle worker, which is come on. Yeah. Of course, the famous play based on Helen Keller's life, not written by her, but based on her life. I know, man. But that's what she's. All right. So yeah, so the dog knows this book off a shelf and Elsa looks at it. The back cover reads the wild animal. Death blind and mute 12 year old Helen Keller was like a wild animal, scared out of her wits, but still murderously strong. She clawed and struggled against all who tried to help her. I was like, what is this? This is horrifying. This description is so extreme. It was like looking at a train crash. I couldn't put it down. And so she didn't. She takes it with her because she basically wants to go hate read it. Okay. So when she's done with her classes, she goes to a bar. So it was me and a copy of the miracle worker and a guide dog sleeping on my feet. She's got a drink by her side and she's like hunched over this book with her thick glasses and the magnifier up to her eyes. And I just started reading the script. She gets me. Well, that's pretty good. And so she reads through these over the top scenes of first Helen's parents. Discovering their little baby has gotten sick and gone deaf and blind. And then little Helen growing up into just this wild animal. So I remember this from the movie. Totally. She charges at her friend with scissors. And she overturns her little sister's crib. And when Anne Sullivan arrives, she's totally resistant and kicking things over and breaking plates and throwing food and trying to run away from Annie and trying to unlock the door. Elsa said the stage directions for how the actress was supposed to play Helen. Had her literally acting like a dog. This goes on for pages and pages and pages until finally. The climactic scene at the water pump. Oh, my dear. And then guess what? More screaming. I was like taking pictures of the script and sending it to my current partner being like what the F is this? I never did this. No death blind person I know has ever done this. And she's sitting there. She's thinking, this just doesn't seem right to me. And suddenly it hits her, that she's never actually read anything that Helen Keller herself has written. I kind of was like, well, if I'm if I'm pissed about this book, I probably need to really go back and reframe how I feel about her. So what did you do? How did you reach? So fast forward a few months. That was such a weird fall. Elsa's marriage had been going through a rough patch that fall. So by early winter I was like, well, okay. I'm moving to Seattle and like two months later, there was a pandemic and I was in a 250 ft² cottage with the dog and my mother. And looking around at how her adult life was suddenly unfolding, she was like this is exactly what I was afraid of. And so not exactly sure the path forward one day. I ended up just sort of, I remember I picked up Helen Keller's autobiography, finally ready to learn more about who she was, according to her. The beginning of my life was simple and much like every other little life. These are Helen's words, which are going to be read by voice actress for the rest of the piece. At 5, I learned to fold and put away the clean clothes. And a couple of things struck Elsa almost immediately. I understood a good deal of what was going on about me. First of all, the idea of Helen Keller being totally cut off from the world before and showed up. Not true. She had her own signs before any Sullivan shut up. Really? Yeah. So she had a sign for mom and she had a sign for dad. This time for her dad was just to put imaginary glasses onto her face and the sign for her favorite aunt was bonnet strings. She would type imaginary bonnet strings if she wanted her aunt. And she had a sign for ice cream. I want ice cream, so I shiver. Shiver her shoulders. That's so good. Yeah. Elsa was starting to see that Helen was reaching out, trying to connect all along. And as for the wild animal thing, the Helen Keller of her own words was someone who wandered the world apologizing to dogs when she tripped over their tails. And as for the event with the scissors, she was just cutting her friend's hair. I wasn't a monster, she was like, out there being a child. And as Elsa keeps reading, she starts noticing these odd similarities. The first short story that she writes is actually science fiction. It is. Yeah, it's about fairies. It's fantasy. And Elsa, very early in reading this autobiography, stumbles across this very eerie scene. The moment when she was climbing a tree. Which I'm going to read you a part of, okay? Okay. She is describing this one particular tree, a cherry tree, not far from her house. All right. The tree was so easy to climb that with my teacher's assistants. I was able to scramble to the branches. It was so cool up in the tree that miss Sullivan proposed that we have our lunch in there. I promise to keep still while she went to the house to fetch it. Suddenly, a change passed over the tree. All the sun's warmth left the air, I knew the sky was black because all the heat, which meant light to me had died out of the atmosphere. A strange odor came up from the earth, I knew it. It was the odor that always precedes a thunderstorm, and a nameless fear clutched at my heart. I felt absolutely alone, cut off from my Friends and the firm earth. The immense, the unknown and folded me, I remained still and expectant a chilling terror crept over me. I longed.

"Elsa says that the ghost of Helen Keller has messed with her life in such tangible, real ways that it's affected how her life has played out. And she's come to see that it's not just her life, but all of our lives. Our brains that are haunted by Helen Keller in a pretty surprising and insidious way. So allow me to just take you back to where the haunting all began for Elsa. Yeah. Okay, so we're going, we're going to the mid 90s Seattle, nirvana's on the air. Elsa, little Elsa is on the she's on the floor in her third grade classroom. Sitting next to her classmates. I had giant Coke bottle glasses, like the 1990s were not kind to low vision children. And her teacher pulls out a picture book about Helen Keller. I distinctly remember seeing the illustration that sort of everybody sees, which is where she's standing there with her hand underneath the faucet that the pump, signing the word water into any Sullivan's hand and like, I just sort of remember being like, well, I know I can't see and I can't really hear that well, but this isn't me. She said she knew, of course, that she had some trouble seeing. I ran into things a lot. And some trouble hearing, which became particularly apparent during verbal spelling tests. The words that I was hearing my classmates say weren't the words that I was supposed to be writing down. Oh, so like they'd say fly and you'd spell sigh or something. Yeah. But whenever someone would compare her to Helen Keller, which she said happened a lot. It was always, but I'm not like that. And I think that's because I was always told, like, but you're not really blind, but you're not really. Like, Elsa says her family had always told her that there was nothing really different about her. You know, your glasses are just a little thicker than other kids. The hearing aids were just, you know, to help me a little bit. And so I consistently would try things that were probably not a good idea, but things like downhill skiing. Horseback riding. Oh, you're moving. Or, oh, I'm looking at the screen. You've got an awesome sword. Yeah, this is an early 20th century German dress sword. That's so cool. I have been fencing since I was 9. How does how does that work? Wouldn't it be scary if you can't really see the swords and things? Fencing is actually not about seeing a sword. You're dealing with the fact that you actually can feel tension in somebody else's blade. I see. Okay. Yeah, so anyway, Elsa is a kid was doing all this really rad stuff, including the everyday adventures that any kid has in childhood like. Climbing trees. There was this one tree in Ravenna park in Seattle. It's enormous. Because of how big this tree was, a lot of light didn't filter through, so it was kind of a dark Heidi place. And I remember being able to sort of use one spot to kind of lift myself up. She knew this tree really well and knew every branch. There was sort of a sloping tree bit. And she would just go higher. And I remember it was a lot of lighting and higher, more like whole body contact with the tree. And eventually I could get all the way up to the top of the tree. How did you feel there? I felt safe there. So I felt like an escape. So one day I was up in the tree and then the sky opened. There was a huge rainstorm. The tree had changed the environment of the tree had changed. What if I slept and now I can't figure out how to grab onto a different spot? And it was kind of like, well, how do I get down safely? And suddenly she got lost. But the texture of the tree had changed, and everything about how I interact with my space is about texture. She did feel like she knew the world, but then you add rain, and then she suddenly lost in this tree. She knows so well. I literally couldn't get out of the tree. There were things that I definitely didn't know the limits of until they sort of smacked me in the face. She said her childhood was scattered with moments like these. Moments, no one else could really relate to. Moments where she wished there was someone who got it. And she said this sense of frustration and loneliness with those frustrations really came to a head when her family moved to New York City. When she was in the 9th grade. In Seattle, my family drove with me to school. Right in the or if I was getting up every morning at 6 45 and getting on the subway. I would just stare at the ground. 'cause otherwise I would trip and fall. And so one morning, it's taking forever for her to get to school. Like with stairs, I would stop at each step and shuffle my feet out and then I would take a step down. And she arrives late to her classroom. My English teacher stopped me at the door and she was like, Elsa, I'd like to talk to you for a second about your classmates essay. He wrote his essay about you and how he admires you and I would like him to read it out loud in front of the class this morning. And I was like, what? She says okay. Goes and takes her seat. And he stands up in front of her class and reads his essay in the first line of the essay as I admire Elsa because she's like Helen Keller. And I just wanted to like think several thousand feet below the surface of the earth. Why? I mean, I think I would have been embarrassed, like, why are you making a big deal of me doing things that everybody else does? Like everybody else goes on the subway. Everybody else goes up and down the stairs at school. And why do you admire me for doing them? Did you again have the and I'm nothing like her? Was there also that part of it? He's wrong. I think it was even more like, oh, maybe I am a little bit like her. Like, I think it might have been the first time I started to realize that there could be something. And for Elsa that thought was terrifying. Because when she thought about what became of Helen Keller as an adult, she lived with a her teacher and her teacher's husband. Because I just supposed to live with my parents and my grandparents, like what was I supposed to do? The images Elsa had of Helen Keller's adult life. Painted a kind of nightmare for her. There was Helen Keller wearing pearls and smiling. Holding a flower. There she was holding a book. There she was. Holding hands Sullivan's hand, sitting on Anne Sullivan's lap. As the grown-up slowly growing grayer and grayer. It seems through the photos. Her smile, getting wider and wider. She just becomes more and more of this very like, stayed artifact. Would you want to be compared to somebody who's entire.

The renowned city planner. Mike what in one thousand nine hundred twenty. Helen would also create the amazingly incredible american civil liberties union. The aclu and that next year the american federation for the blind was founded as well. I just wanted to stop here in. Just say i don't know how i didn't know this high had no idea than helen. Keller was one of the individuals who helped to found the aclu. I mean that's such an incredible organization even today. Just really incredible stuff. The american federation for the blind was founded that next year. And mrs where. Helen would focus for support creating campaigns for awareness and to raise financial support for those living with blindness. It was during this time that helen's popularity began to weaken due to her associations with the less than popular socialism with this didn't stop her momentum entirely in nineteen forty six. Helen was named the counselor of international relations for the american foundation of overseas blind and traveled all over the world sharing her story a decade later. Helen would begin a groundbreaking trek across asia lecturing and educating on blindness. And how to better support special needs individuals in society. It should be noted that helena was seventy five one. She began her trip in nineteen sixty five. Helen would be appointed to the women's hall of fame along with several other distinguish awards including the presidential medal of freedom as well as the theodore. Roosevelt distinguished service medal after many years. Lecturing and traveling. Helen would settle down in her home in connecticut. After suffering health issues for a number of years. Helen keller passed away in her sleep on june. First nineteen sixty eight at the age of eighty seven now first of all. I had no idea that she passed away in sixty eight. That just doesn't seem as far off. In the past. As i thought it was when i think about helen. Keller but this story to me is one of the most incredible amazing stories. Because whenever i tell these stories usually individuals are dealing with societal or cultural obstacles which either delay or hinder them. But having to of your physical senses unusable in continuing on to live such an extraordinary life mean just writing books going to college like really being exemplary individual pursuing all of your interests all of your passions not even allowing your circumstances to dictate how you move forward. I mean i love. This story also loved it because it was a very real depiction of someone who's angry at life in the beginning of her life where she was throwing all these tantrums and she was always very angry and disrespectful to her family and her parents. I mean number one. She was a child who didn't even have the ability to absorb the education that she really needed at that point in her life. Because it just wasn't there and number two. She was blind and death. She couldn't communicate. She lived in a world she absolutely could not understand just as a child not even somebody who was blind and deaf to look at that and then look at how far she came from that point. I mean it's so impressive. It is so encouraging for me personally. It's just so inspiring that she didn't allow her rage to consume her. Because nobody would have blamed her for that but she didn't. She allowed it to fuel her and take her to heights. That people with all of their senses couldn't reach just pure determination and grit and on top of all of this. She also dedicated her life to fighting for those with special needs along with social activist causes. Like how does she even have the ban with like.

And bobby's family didn't have that kind of money and bobby knew. He wanted to make a living and so he went into corporate. Pr after two years of being in book publishing.

Invented these affairs before. I continue with lease psychology. Please note. I am not a licensed psychologist or psychiatrist but i have done a lot of research for the show. This tactic that lee used is called gas lighting while it may appear likely just gave helen lame excuses to hide his infidelity. The truth is more insidious gas lighting is a form of manipulation often used by psychological abusers by feeding people blatantly false information or claiming not to know what they're talking about gas lighters keep their victims off kilter. It can severely affect the gas lighted person's memory and even their sense of reality if it goes on long enough. People often gaslight for two reasons which often intersect firstly. They may simply enjoy messing with other people by warping their perception. Secondly gas sliders may wish to psychologically control another person and manipulate them into behaving in certain. Way by. Gas lighting helen. Lean knocked the normally tough solid woman off balance. He wanted to manipulate her to ignore his blatant cheating and he wanted her to overlook how he ignored. Her lee had only duct in their apartment earlier that night to pick up his trumpet. He barely even bother to invite helen to his gig at slug saloon down in alphabet.
Frito-Lay Strike Could End as Workers Vote on a New Labor Agreement
"Workers who have been striking in Topeka, Kansas, for more than two weeks are voting today on a new labor agreement. Frank Morris of member station K. C U R reports the proposed contract eases some working conditions at the plant and would raise salaries, but those concessions may not be enough to compete in a tight labor market. Union strong Oh, one thing you learn, talking to the strikers outside the sprawling Frito Lay plant Topeka, the people who make Cheetos, Fritos and chips they can work similar long hours. I am a very hardworking woman. I work like him. Helen Teeter done up in a bright red shirt. Big white hat says she has very little time for family. I have no time to go work for them because I've been working seven days a week. Like 84 hours a week. 84 hours a week, Peter says the money's good up to double the normal $20 an hour wage with overtime. In a statement, Frieda Lee says only about 2% of its Topeka workers average more than 60 hours a week. But the company routinely forces workers to pick up extra hours and to skip scheduled days off even those with seniority like Marlon Smith. I've been here 22 years and I still get force for seven days a week. Maybe, like two or 3, 12 2 or 3 12 hour shifts. The contract Smith and others are voting on today would guarantee one day off a week. It would also end what workers call suicide shifts. 2 12 hour shifts with only eight hours in between. There's a proposed 4% raise over the next two years. But there may not be enough workers have more leverage now, and the signs of that are impossible to miss. They just put this up last week. We were out here We watched him put it up. Brad Wiese is pointing out a new billboard just across from the free delay plant Right where the picketers stand it, says the JM Smuckers company now hiring multiple position shift and pay rates, comprehensive benefit packages, So that's pretty much telling us.

"We don't know much about helen. Morgan and her life before she might lee. A lot of the record comes from helen. Herself when larry rennie. Thomas interviewed her about her life. In february of nineteen ninety six but according to helen from the beginning she always felt she had to fight for what she wanted. She was born helen. More in nineteen twenty six on a small farm near shallow north carolina. she never liked the rural lay. She hated the endless chores of the farm. When she was big enough she would leave the farm and go off on her own but from an early age. Helen learned that things don't always work out as planned in one thousand nine hundred ninety nine. When helen was only thirteen years old she had her first child. Another arrived the next year. It's unclear what circumstances helen had her children under. But it's likely that she suffered from some form of coercion and was possibly even forced into a relationship before. I continue with her psychology. Please note. I am not a licensed psychologist or psychiatrist but i have done a lot of research for the show. According to the human rights organization equality now girls. Who married at a young age are more likely to develop symptoms related to post traumatic stress disorder and depression. Allen wasn't married but at thirteen. She was a mother. It's possible she was expected to take on the role of an adult woman as well in another study conducted in two thousand eleven researchers found that girls married before. Eighteen have a higher risk of developing anxiety and even bipolar disorder. These girls are also at risk of having substance abuse problems later in life at thirteen..

And while we're equipped to deal with anger and conflict. Were not equipped to be cast out of the community to which we belong. It's why solitary confinement so excruciatingly painful or why school suspensions have been shown again and again to be the most counterproductive of all educational interventions and yet a third of all american children will be suspended over the course of their schooling. We can't help ourselves as i look back. That was the that was the toughest thing the loneliness was simply rental. My eighteen year old self would have welcomed. Helen levitz punishment.

Do you like the same food. Have the same friends to get the cavities in your teeth. Do you think like which. I thought was a very strange question at the time now. I don't know as so long before. I knew there was a nature nurture issue. I knew there was biology to behavior because of my childhood because everybody asks identical twins what they have in common. And so i already had that and as i say i used to sit in the woods and watch my neighbors eat dinner. I remember in graduate school. I went to a party. Native set up a camera against some another apartment building next door.

"helen" Discussed on Dateable Podcast
"Count code dateable just go to better help dot com slash dateable fill out a simple questionnaire so they can match you with the great counselor again that's better help dot com slash dateable and use code dat for ten percent off your first month now back to this episode how does that work like you're kind of the first meet is a first date people not thinking of that as an actual date and they're doing more low key staff oh moping that the vast majority of a coffee or a drink and not regarding it as much as date as a looks basically people aren't putting that much emphasis on a first date if they're meeting online a lot of these i dates armenian bar for drag or there is no dinner involved in law they begin to like each or maybe it's the definition that i'm kind of going because i feel like for me because i'm in this generation like a date is a drink so that like would feel like i wouldn't necessarily feel like i slept with someone before for a state but i guess your definition or maybe like the more traditional pull out the stops nice dinner like that type of high well what we've called it matches the fissile i got it i agree with you by the way one here on their singles to america's steady we did ask people what do you day did some people will say a video chat on the internet is a date and i would agree with that and others certainly say every anchor even having a posse so it's so interesting now i mean this is a good example of how times have changed unless that nobody knows what a first date yeah that's definitely true because i would even venture to say people even younger than me with say like oh it just like hanging out in a group or something is a date like sell all over the place and hi there so much confusion in modern dating because people think what are we doing here we just hang out or refinance with benefits are we headed into a something more serious yes and this goes into your whole research about slow love fast sacks the extension of were historically i think this is really interesting that marriage was the beginning of the ship but now it's the finale so look research on slow love i really feel like there's some generational differences i think baby boomers were all about traditional marriage and you mean one person and you you get married to them and then they experienced the highest divorce rate the consequence of that was i'm not going to get married to someone just to get divorced so i'm gonna along gate this courtship process may be put up with more people test drive a little bit more before i settle down with someone so gen-x created the ice the hookup culture which millennials took on and said okay we saw we did next took on hookup culture SEI's increase i don't want to have that so i'm going to extend the course the process but with a more intentional angle which is to find a meaningful relationship which i'm seeing in gen z. they're like very traditional if you think about i feel like they're going full circle you're going back to the very traditional values of identity believe in marriage that can last a long time but i'm going to wait a really long time to find the right person absolutely they wanted and by the way you know there's some concept of DT are defined the relationship they young wanted divine and we asked in what point in the body parts that conversation you know defining the relationship and the average time was months about right oh i would never invest i'm a baby boomer i never had somebody after four months dating we had i never would have but navigation maybe i'm not a little unusual as you wouldn't have because it's already defined or you have because he wouldn't want to have that conversation i wouldn't want to pin down but listen most of the people in my generation married very young and i only married for about six months and then didn't marry ends probably a little you guys singles today but certainly millennials and gen z. a. watch everything about that person before they tied the knot and they don't wanna catch feelings at waste a lot of time in with people who aren't going to be right for them so they're having the sex avenue sex but you're getting rid of person faster than older generation would we would net around and tried to figure it out and talk to our girlfriends whether they mean by that geez i can't i don't know if these you guys want transparency kerry impressed and so you start out this just friends you really get a person in your climate better than learn a lot between the sheets and then you slowly come out and then you have the official thursday and then you throw time before you read and you know is so interesting i mean what what what started this is it was a sings in america studying every year we as special have you ever had one night stamp fifty percent of singled ceus over the every you're over fifty percent of the friends with benefit and over fifty percent of singles have had live with somebody long term before they married and you know a lot of people think oh this is reckless a study why are you doing this and i began to realize this is cost you is wants to know every single thing about this person when you walk down now you wanna know who you got in fact i began to think to myself well you know with his long period of recommitment you'll learn a lot about yourself you learn how to get rid of somebody and get in something too long so i begin this slow love fast sex slow love we will see were happy magic because people got rid of what they didn't vote so i didn't study eleven hundred married people one of the questions would you re-marry person you're married to an eighty one percents said yes we may even be going towards more stable partnerships because millennials are taking this so i want to unpack one piece that i've been curious is about is like i feel like the millennials are known as the hookup generation but kind of all your staff are showing that like actually they are really looking for like real connection why do you think that that's kind of like the emphasis that it's all about saxon less about feelings when you're kind of saying that it's that's like the means to get to those feelings i don't know i don't why the press wants to continue to say all that i mean there's quite a few studies now that everybody in think that everybody else and they're not in one study thousand thirty percent of single watery mid virgin wow that's really high ever said we all swing in another direction that you guys have grown up in a time of real terms well and i think the great maneuvers and i'm going to build a career i'm going to get myself under control i'm going to work for saban's i third singles today i don't want to is utter the chip in the till their finances are ordered you wanna get saints in auriemma career with a ride in you want finances going direction and you're gonna stick it out to get that done so i think we are looking up but just like you said that was very small art is that you guys are hooking up almost as sex interview what do you think about this idea of slow love no sex what we're seeing right now with a sex drought with a younger gratien i mean most of that sex drought is because first of all living at home one-third of no money and they're so ambitious the catch feelings until they get themselves in their finances in order so regardless of the sex drought as very cautious people being more careful about route sex i'm not in the should business thirty four percent of people have had sex before the first day most valencia's aren't scared of getting ahead of that not scared of disease in a heartbeat and scare the walker shame so the lid off the pot and and a lot of singles are using success in it again percents to see whether they weren't spend time money energy and perhaps they life with somebody so all of these it's so undertaken by day everybody thought that we were having okay too much sex now the whole thing is your sex i mean getting millennials are gonna have sex just slowing it down making it smart but so there's one stat that was interesting that only nine percent of singles wanted to casually in sixty six percent of sales are open to a new relationship which has doubt you should never tell tinder i know i know the socio pursue used to be the sociologist at tinder even there eighty percent of of those singles are looking for some kind of relationship i will say i actually reactivated tinder recently because forever i was like i don't wanna be on tinder it's hookup and i keep saying the people in their profiles being here for relationship like really emphasized this is my question do people actually mean what they say these are all self reporters data link all of my girlfriends say they're looking for sears relationship but then i look at their actions so why is there such a discrepancy here i think honestly it's what helen said of like i want to get myself in order i think that's a huge piece of it because i know so many people personally like i think like we're talking about with like the men and women equality even though like that exists a lot of men still feel like i need to be a provider each for my finances or order in probably women into the path of like it's you could always self improve right like one that line of like stopping in just being like i'm gonna go on this journey with someone versus when he gets the very best possible piece of who i could be you could be there till you're like sixty in theory by never end so the maybe the question on one hand aspirational what he want aspirations i think most people want a serious damage relationship and the next question is are you ready for right achieving that all right now then what's the definition of ready because i think that's like we're saying it's like it's like a hamster wheel like you could go on forever as well let's let's dot back to the brain you know i and my colleagues are are the first to put people in brain scanner and studied the brain circuitry using functional FM find the brain circuitry of romantic love and that brain's circuitry it's very clear in circuitry it comes from bay base of the brain way below the cortex where you do it wave factories in the middle of yours had orchestrate the emotions in basic drive with obsession with motivation enter james optimism and that brain circuit can be triggered anytime brain circuitry for romantic love is like the fiercest fear can be treated and romantic love can be tricky terms so my guess is when you talked about a girlfriend who said she wants a long-term partnership then she doesn't behave that a it's my guess is that she's going out with people she's trying them out and enough for her and she'll carry on a little while hoping so it but she hasn't triggered that brain circuitry inches off to the races doc is my guest that you can be both at same time so are you are you in the camp that finding the right person is more important than timing i think the timing is absolutely essential it's amazing how the perfect person can sit on your lap and if the timing is right for you just don't even see if there's so many factors that go into medical but i do the timing is is one of the essential we carry in our head a love map a list of what we're looking for in a partner but when the timing is right and the prison fits within net that list of traits you can then vol mattielo but now i think timing plays a big role so i think the other piece that's interesting that you brought up helen is people are just like newest trying people on for size and i think there's also this line of like you kind of at some point after just doubled down on somewhat in like make a commitment in see if it can
