Exploring Attachment Patterns in Relationships With Chelsea Wakefield

Whether we have the kind of responsiveness that we needed or feel safe. And welcome in the world or whether they were inconsistent or sometimes they were even dangerous. So when i talked people were back. Their early. lives I find that some of them as little kids were really really focused on their parents and they wanted to know how to please them. What are the parents lawn and needs that. They could stay in alignment with them and do not get in trouble or get the kind of attention that they were longings for that creates something called an anxious attachment pattern where the lottery. Johnston is hyper focused on the other and the needs of the other and every little nuance of that other person. That indicates that there's a message then. Maybe they're displeasing them or perhaps that other person has gotten a little bit different her distant because they feel overwhelmed by the attention they start your more insecure and afraid of abandonment so that's one type of attachment patterns that we call anxious and the other type of detachment pattern looks more independent but it's also insecure attachment patterns and these are the children that grew up learning that it was best just to go to their room and read a book or play video games and they sued and settled most of the way along. So if you get paranoia somebody who is afraid of abandonment and the other in. Who's afraid of being overwhelmed by a lot of emotion are hey us that could be a really difficult herring and those two galloping across the relationship landscape because one's trying to rock closer than the others seeking says and both of them are misinterpreting accused the

"johnston" Discussed on Mere Mortals Book Reviews
"Things do these things which is good because you can come up with abstract thoughts you can come up with different things but you can struggle and maybe not see what is truly real and be part of the merman. Come to the end the summary of the book and this book it cod and it was maybe even too close to home. I saw the life of david meredith. I saw what he was. Like as a person i saw myself in and boy did not like that. So maybe a point of introspective me. I think i already have addressed most of the issues. That i see myself in him as a bad thing. But men reading about that in reading about what was essentially an alternate car. Living in alternate life was bizarre. Was a little bit eerie. I did like the book addressed other aspects such as wars such as the feeling in the ass such as what it is to be an osce things like this and right at the end of the book the very last seen the non interaction the shirking of responsibility that david shows throughout two his brother. Jack is just exemplified. It's the epitome of a ship person and just left me really going. Damn david is a crap person. This was close to my top ten list. I'm giving it an eight out of ten. My brother jack by george johnston and to cap off this book. I'll talk about some ozzy slang. When i'm reading those e book or try and express what these words mean in the english language number one popping up is who men. This is ozzy end. Aldo's at that. I'm not exactly sure what it means. I think it's more of a goodbye away to say. Sia rather than heller. One of my mom's friends stu says us and she is in a sixty seventies and this just something that is really part of her vocab. I have not heard other people particularly my age and younger say this. So who ru nipah. This refers to a young person particularly a boy. But i think just for young people in general. You'll see this in particular with these. Life saving clubs. They're competitions their names for the. Let's just say saab fifteen category. I'm not exactly sure but definitely young people. They're called nipples ropel. This is definitely in australia. And this is to feel hot. Done by or to feel slighted or to even be angry. You can say oh. That guy's rope -able men as as in men disgusted. Something bad happen to you. You've got a a feeling a negative feeling in you and the last one is flog and this can have multiple interpretations and i saw it used multiple times in the book for different things so it can mean to hit something as in flogging something. This is probably the standard definition to flog. Something in australia in english also means to steal something to get something a quiet and then also to sell it. So i'm going to something off. And this may be referred to more of selling something that you don't particularly want or selling something in a slightly underhanded manner for example. I'm just gonna flog that off and so those are the english slang that i took from this book. So we've come to the end of another book review and i really do want to thank you for joining me up until this point. If you'd like to hear more you can hit.

Head to head space dot com slash cut. Today the cut. The cut cut cut okay. We're gonna play a game. I'm actually playing a game with you. The listener so just play along here. So you're going on a trip and you have five animals a cow. A horse alliant a lamb and a monkey really picture each one a cow a horse a lion a lamb and a monkey all right now on this trip huron. We're going to have to give one of those animals away. Which one do you get rid of. I all right. You got which one you're giving away now get rid of another animal and then the next one and then the next one and then which one do you keep that last remaining animal. Just hold it in your mind's eye for a minute that's the animal that represents what you value most in life. Each of these animals are representative of the priorities in your life and like the lion is your pride in the horses. Your job and the cow is wealth and the Lamb is your significant other and The monkey is like a child. Michelle learned about this game from her aunt back when michelle was a teenager and the wish he thought about it back then was like okay. If the premise is that. I'm going on a trip. I need to pack really light and so i was like it's going to be a real pain in asks to like carpet lying around so like that's gonna go first and then like the cow is also like this really like large stubborn animals so like i can get rid of that and looking back it makes sense that michelle would immediately give up her pride in her hopes of striking it rich. Because you kind of have to. If you're going to grow up to be touring musician my name is michelle sonner and i also play in a band called japanese breakfast but before japanese breakfast was playing venues all around the world back when michelle was a teenager playing this game with her aunt the third animals she gave up was the horse and then as a real toss up between like the lamb and the monkey and when michelle played this game with her aunt. She was like wait a second. Have you played this game with my mom. What animal did she pick. Since you know choosing your child is an option why she better have picked the monkey. Although michelle wasn't a hundred percent sure that her mom would choose. The monkey felt was my mother's priority. But she was also kind of like somewhat of an enigma to me. And i think that that was why the type of game was so enticing to me because she could be very private and somewhat withholding as michelle writes in her new memoir crying h mart. Her mother wasn't what she calls a. Mommy mom my mom was by no means like coddling anyway. She was very present and very involved in my childhood but she was not easy on me in a lot of ways of every time i got injured. My mom would be very upset. Instead of like you know rushing to my aid and taking me to the doctor and sort of like telling me it's gonna be okay. She could you know she would get very angry and start yelling at me because she was just so angry that it happened. I think and didn't know how to track that energy. Even as michelle grew up her mom was always a source of tough love. I remember when. I got fired from my job at a waitressing and mexican fusion restaurant and i was so obsessed know worked really hard and and a lot of i've seen other moms we like you know it's their loss honey like you'll find another job or whatever. My mom's i won't show anyone can carry a tray. She just had this like very like cruel reality that she would hit me with in michelle's mothers defense. Michelle was kind of a handful. I was such a rowdy tomboy. I didn't take care of my things very well and that drove my mother crazy. My mom was someone who had like a twelve step skin care regiment and tony piece of clothing for twenty years and looked like it had never been worn and she took so such great pride in like self care and her appearance and fashion designer handbags. And you know. I was like a little punk kid that wore daniel. Johnston t shirts and patched overalls and wanted to like play rock music for a living. I was very angry and perplexed by my mom's decision to settle for

"johnston" Discussed on Drum History
"Mike. Let's jump in and Yeah why don't you go ahead and teach us about the history of drum lessons men. It's it's one of those things that right when you think about anyone. Acquiring a skill you have to think that as soon as that skill is acquired then that skill is ready to be taught to someone else and so we can assume that in the history of drums dating back to people banging on things that it was taught to other people the rhythms the traditional rhythms. All of that stuff. So i think if we're looking for forms of education and that's what you and i have discussed as in the past about like what a cool topic that would be informs of education. We have to start at in person lessons because that would have been the first way this would have been done in and that would be with any skill and so when you have in-person private drum lessons one on one. I'm passing on information to you in a skill set to you. That has it's own pros and cons. I mean all of these have ups and downs all of these things. it's like. Oh that's the best way to go except for this except for this and i think that that becomes such a cool topic because people like me. That are obsessed with education. We're always trying the best trying to find the best way to pass on that information to someone else. And i gotta say i would assume by the end of this. Podcast will wrap all the way back to the beginning which is in person lessons so i think the first thing that would have happened before published books and obviously before the digital world would be in person private lessons on the instrument. And i think it's probably safe for us to just do this coming from the drums set perspective instead of cavemen hitting random skinned instruments. No i think. I think totally and i think that's You know before that and and a lot of it maybe we can kind of dislike. Assume that a lot of the lessons that would have happened. before kind of our modern in person drum set would have been your were taught via the military Yeah seems like a safe assumption. From what i've learned over the years of doing the show is You know it's you're taught the snare drum for a reason or in other cultures. Maybe you're you know it's it's traditional music and you're playing and like a pub or in you know at a party quote unquote. Maria is. it's you know the function Was a big thing you know. What are you doing this for. It wasn't the modern day of like. Oh i play drums. Because i'd igam. I'm doing this to go along with this. Traditional dance or this traditional ceremony so going from those but if we consider like modern day private drum lessons they wouldn't have been that different even one hundred years ago. You would have had to go to someone's house or a music store and you would have had to sit down and take a one on one private lesson now. The pros the positive side of that is the i think the biggest one is this personalized when someone writes a book. It's not personalized. It's general but if i walk into a room to take a lesson with somebody hopefully as long as they're doing their job right they're going to be creating the education specifically for me and my desires on the instrument so getting personalized instruction is a massive plus the other thing is you have someone in the room watching you mess up. That can correct in the moment. Yes dead of submitting video and then waiting two weeks for someone to get back to you in the moment they can even and i don't mean this in like a whiplash kind of way but they can grab your wrists and turn them over a little bit and i. I still remember being a kid and having my teacher grabbed my hand and turn it over and just that feeling of like some another human being note. Do it like this. That stuck with me forever. Yes oh that is amazing and the other thing that never gets talked about enough but as someone that taught private lessons from the age that i was seventeen and from five and tell seventeen i took them and then i taught from seventeen on the teacher becomes a life councillor to the student because the teacher is the one person that is removed from their social circle. So the student who's going through whatever it is in their life whether they're a kid or adult they have this person they can tell their problems too and that teacher can't spread. The rumours can't yarn into drama. Because i don't know anybody so that's one thing that you know you get out of private lessons as you get a bit of a life coach yes someone in the room to correct you and you get personalized instruction. You're absolutely right. And and i just have a funny thing that happened because i i mean you're obviously on another planet from what i was doing so i taught at sam ash for a while and i taught private and then at another store here and i guess my specialty would be working with really young kids not as much shredding like. Let's go you know. Rip through a bunch of books and stuff. It was like getting kids to really like the drums. And i had a little kid. And you know. I won't name obviously but he They were. The dodd was from country. Where i believe. It was a little stricter on the kids. Um i think that's fair to say but the kid the young five year old would very often just kind of like talk to me and tell me stuff in like you said. It's like a psychiatrist thing almost but one time he said. My dad told me to grow a pair. What does that mean. And i was like. Oh man talk to your mom. I'm not. I'm not getting into that. I don't. I don't want sam ash to come after me but again that is such a normal part of being a private drum instructor is that you're you are the person that they can go to and just say like look i. I have no one else to talk about this stuff. And you know you can also end with the problem is you can't step in and be their parent because they already have parents and you just have to kind of be there for them and listen as much as possible. But i think that's that is one of the few things that i never hear mentioned and i think lake man even so my last private instructor that i was actually in the room with was peter manga dini and that was just such a blessing because he's just a legend in the world of education and i would drive two hours to go have my lessons with them and we would be in his basement and i was in my twenties so i wasn't a kid but i was able to tell him. Hey you know. How i'm touring and i have this record deal. Something doesn't feel right and he was the first person to tell me. Education can be your plan. You just have to choose it. Yeah and to have somebody say that to you when you think like. I don't want to admit that. I don't enjoy the rockstar lifestyle to have somebody believe in me and say look man. You're you're meant for this thing. I don't know where my career would be. If i didn't have an in person life coach at that moment To say those things absolutely he was on the I probably should have sent this to you before. He was on the show From when recording this a couple weeks ago a month or so really. Yeah he did We just talked about career and his life and he talked about you and Told a bunch of embarrassing stories. Awesome beautiful now now. He was super proud of you. Obviously but Yeah that was another suggested Episode by someone but I agree completely where you can like. It's almost like a It's just like someone who's been down the road before and can And can kind of steer you in the right direction. But i think maybe that brings up the point of but a a bad teacher can really affect things negatively as well right so so and you know for the downside of private instruction i think the biggest downside is that you are limited to the people in your local area and we don't all live in san francisco. La atlanta new york. London where there's top level pros. And that's i think why you see the success of books. Eventually later later in the timeline. The success drum clinics drum touring Even online lessons. That's because when it comes to private lessons whoever works at your local store. That's who you get. I mean i know as a kid. I didn't choose my german star five years old. My mom got me drum lessons and whoever the teacher was at the store that was closest to us that was going to be my new life coach and it didn't go well for like the first three teachers. I wasn't clicking with the people. And i had the jazz teacher that told me. The only way to play is like this and it was. You know god doesn't really sit well with me that i'm trying to get better in an art form in. You're telling me that it's the military that there's rules has to be done this way and so i think that can be a bad side of in person lessons. The other thing is that. And this is something you'll know from sam ash and either positive or negative but you are also limited to how much the store or the school supports their lesson program. So you might go to an amazing store that has killer gear but because of where. They chose to have their location. You don't get to take lessons on a drum set you have to take it adds or an electric it and so that's another really bad part about this is like oh man. I signed up for this instrument that supposed to be loud and bombastic. And i've never played one
"johnston" Discussed on Stuck Mic AvCast – An Aviation Podcast About Learning to Fly, Living to Fly, & Loving to Fly
"Let's move onto the crew's flight and first. Let's start off here <hes>. madison. Because i've one of the things i'd have to say i don't know a lot about this <hes>. This whole part one. Oh three type of flying so right off the bat. Let's get people to understand that and then we'll talk a little bit about why it's so much fun. So part one of three is <hes>. Ultralight flying the aircraft has to weigh two hundred and fifty pounds dry so less fuel and oil. I can't carry more than five gallons of fuel and has to cruise fifty five knots <hes>. <hes>. it's up to the pilot and the builder to really <hes>. Make sure that. The aircraft's follows that <hes>. The designers do their best to designer craft. That follow those rules and fly at those speeds <hes>. But in the end of the day at the end of the day it's <hes>. It's up to the the pilot to make sure that that is followed. And these aircraft <hes>. I've seen these over at like sun and fun and a lotta different airshows and the light sport air shows that type of thing. Usually you see ultralights there. What's really it's interesting because it looks a lot of them look like airplanes are kind of beefy other ones. There's not much to them. It's just a wing and you and the bugs and the teeth in the air. What are the common questions. That i get is <hes>. You know hey his that really safe to fly in and so let's let's get that the bat right away. What do you think i mean. I know madison <hes>. When you get that question. I'm sure you do often. What do you tell people when they ask. Is it safe to fly. There is safe to fly as you make them <hes>. It just like it. You're certified aircraft. You've gotta do your inspections you do your walk arounds <hes>. The the differences that a part one of three pilot. I'm doing the maintenance <hes>. And i have to make sure that everything is good to go on that. So i mean it's a safe as i can make it <hes>. And i wouldn't lie it. If i didn't feel confident in getting up in the air with it so so one. Oh three rules <hes>. You actually so you. I guess do most people buy or do they build these. I will. I bought most of mine <hes>. But i am in the process of building a mini mak. Sixteen fifty aeros. I bought plans while. I've been out here in afghanistan and <hes>. Slowly accumulated supplies at my house to build. Get back in february <hes>. But i i bought all of the aircraft <unk>. That i currently on <hes>. Between myself and my hanger. Buddy we have nine not including the arrows that i'm building and the two experimental aircraft that i also have <hes>. That am constructing. So you're really involved.
"johnston" Discussed on Making Gay History
"<music>. I'm eric marcus. And this is making history. One of the things. I love about mining the studs terkel radio archive is the time travel. The chance to go back decades and hear the voices of people only read about like lorraine hands berry and christopher isherwood or the stories of people who are long forgotten like female impersonator. Leslie i also enjoy listening to studs terkel. His curiosity is proudly lefty opinions. And the way he connected with people sitting across from him but sometimes that was a struggle as you'll hear in his early nineteen seventies interview with lesbian feminist separatist jill johnston johnston was born in london in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine to an american nurse in an english bell maker. Her father left the picture soon after joe was born. She was raised by her mother and grandmother in queens new york in nineteen fifty-nine chill started writing for the alternative downtown newspaper. The village voice she began dance critic and later moved onto writing more personal columns where she embraced all things of guard and counter cultural a year after the stonewall uprising jill came out in. Print is a lesbian. Her focus shifted from the cultural to the political and she began advocating for a complete break from men and their institutions. She got a lot of attention. For pronouncements like all women are lesbians except those who don't know it yet but there was more to jill than just her talent for provocation for work was welcomed by women who felt sidelined both in the male dominated gay liberation movement and the feminist movement which was hostile to lesbians even at a time when radical thought was widespread gills views pushed the envelope and push the buttons when he interviewed jill about her book lesbian nation. Let's join the two of them as they lock horns in a conversation first broadcast on june twenty-ninth nineteen seventy-three. I wanted to ask you about not challenge. You just wonder about you. Say a woman is not free. Liberated that she's a lesbian now. Isn't this kind of fascistic on your part. Well it's it's the use of the word fascistic. No you i say this. I'm thinking when you say no woman can be a free will mushy. Aren't you denying people the right to be what they are no matter. Well we as women as you know. There is a feminist movement and women have been denied the right to be what they are. So i know that you know. Let's start with beginnings <hes>. The it depends how you're defining lesbian. I have political definition of lesbianism and <hes>. It what it really means a self commitment and we know that <hes>. We have a feminist movement because women have been been denied self commitment and we're just updating feminism by calling it lesbianism because we feel that <hes>. Total commitment to ourselves would include. Every phase of our activities is using the word women using the word lesbian in a much broader sense pricing. Well that's pepsi should be made clear. Yes that's why this book is a political book. Basically as a result of which. Sometimes your stuff seems outrageous. It's almost deliberate. I mean isn't that point that to outrage to disturb <hes>. Well i i i. It's a funny thing you know. I just say what i'm into. I don't know i don't set out outrage. I mean i. It seems that that where i'm at is not does tend to be outrageous. Could talk about that reactions to you when you appear publicly. i'm talking. I'm not talking about the inner circles of new yorker village of eligible. Talk about outside west of the hudson when you appear. What is the first reaction <hes>. This range from dummies to smarties and and people in yellow dresses and heels and stockings and girdles to <hes> to <hes>. Call them dummies though. Are you yeah. Girls and yellow dresses. Why well. I had this experience in seattle recently. A woman in a yellow dress just like that who to stop before i got on you know it took a look at my boots and she signaled the director to cut our time in half and and she was extremely hostile. Really you know just acting as sensor now. What do you think made her do that. Fear yeah i suppose well i i think <hes> is the way the culture has brought us all up you know and it's in the last decade or so that <hes> with psychedelics people's heads of opened up more and they're more accepting if not just tolerant of all different ways of behaving america hasn't been noted for its tolerance of just eccentricity people who accent or different just because they wear checkered hats or something but how did it begin yourself your consciousness your awareness that say you are a lesbian. Now in the sexual. That's you know. well. I was born a lesbian. You know i suppose all men or lesbians to from that point of view. It's all men came out of their mothers <hes>. Our first great sexual experience was with our mothers. And i think that all sexual experience afterwards is a recreation of that experience and so from that point of view it's a perversion for women to sleep with men or two to be invaded by man. I think that <hes>. That women as well as men want to recreate their original unity with their mothers. Isn't this forgive me easy. you have your right. I denying the natural impulses of people. Each of whom is different and unique.

"Our host Brian Johnston welcome back to life matters were your program on the right to life on the values and the culture that emanated from its singular idea the idea that you have a life that was given to you by a creator it wasn't given to you by society it wasn't given to you by the government it is your creator they gave me your life but there is a role for government in our founders said the rule for government is to ensure your right to be alive to ensure that your life isn't taken from you by someone else or even the government itself unless you've had due process of law the idea of the right to life is essential to understanding human freedom in America because it's the ideas behind the American experiment that have brought freedom throughout the world and I've been in many parts of this world I was in New Zealand when a gentleman there admitted to me he felt that the freedoms they had in New Zealand and Australia and that part of the world were guaranteed by the citizen soldiers the United States who fought for the idea that human individuals should be protected under just a government and this is important idea the reason we spend time on the right to life right now is that it's at stake it's an idea that's being brought into question it has been brought into question other times in human history by undressed governments but even the government of the United States now has begun to question whether the right to life should be applied to all individual human beings that there might be classes of human beings that could be dismissed we saw that in nineteen seventy three when the United States Supreme Court ruled in roe V. Wade and doe V. Bolton that an unborn child didn't have the right to life that would no longer be extended even though every state in the nation had protection for that child in the womb all the fifty laws in the fifty states were overturned by that Supreme Court pair of decisions roe V. Wade and doe V. Bolton and it's because because of that the right to life movement really came into existence to again assert this basic premise but more to the point that battle is raging right now in human lives are being lost because there's other categories of people that are now being dismissed those who have an illness terminal illness perhaps or perhaps they are simply in curable perhaps the depressed and curable well that particular class of human beings they're being discarded now even in the United States of America and legally so that is frightening and unless you understand this battle my ideas is really about individual lives you're gonna lose this battle so I know many people that are pro life and they do more the individual lives lost I have friends who have had abortions and they now deeply regret those abortions I used to teach high school and I saw students of mine who would just be crushed because they had had an abortion and it's a human cost here the cost of that child's life but the cost to that human individual and many of you are involved in counselling encouraging young women and that's a good thing but I tell you if we don't address the battle of ideas and the laws that are allowing this you'll be council a lot more women and this carnage is going to continue unless we address this very real battle of ideas and the reason we often talk about laws on life matters is because laws are basically ideas that are enforced so we want to encourage you to be aware of ideas and they're not scaring you do have to take time to think about him in the right to life is based on that premise that there is an essential idea behind a just society and in our society it is that every individual has been given a gift by god sometimes we'll talk a little bit about theology but not a lot and if we do it's as deep as the conflict on the back of your money if you're listening in America every call and every dollar bill you have says there's got it's pretty cool because what the founder said and what nature says is that there is a thought somebody designed all of this and if you want to make sense of what this is that we live in the reality that surrounds us you have to look at the fact that there's an ordered universe and if we want to have just laws we want to follow the laws that are represented in the laws of nature and of nature's god and that's what our founders did so if you're joining us by radio these last couple of weeks we've been talking about the conflict of ideas between natural law the laws of nature and of nature's god and the idea that truce in laws will they're all relatives and where did that come from last week we spoke in depth about Hagel and how Hagel is a leading philosopher in changing the world view of western society and we did some deep analysis on that it was a complex if you would like to go to the podcast I've already had folks tell me that they really appreciated understanding why Hagel was so important and how Hagel has infected our own view it isn't just that he spawned national socialism that's Nancy is a and international socialism that's communism Hegelian view of history and of reality infects our culture right now and I'm a spend a little more time talking about that I wish if you could you could read some writings of justice Antonin Scalia or justice Clarence Thomas two justices of the U. S. Supreme Court Antonin Scalia has since passed away but he was great in bringing these things down to earth and was well known for presenting these principles in a humorous way but in reality what a Supreme Court justice is is he's just talking about ideas in which ideas should be applied to the loss of the incident Scalia he's just a great source on these types of things but a lot of us don't have time to read that I understand listen to the radio are we you know turn on the television the computer will level watching videos people have said we should make life matters a video presentation well we're not doing that but you can listen in your car you can listen to the podcast you can listen on the radio wherever you are and we want to equip you for this battle of ideas because lives are at stake so in just a little bit we're gonna come back I'm gonna pick up again why Hagel is so dangerous to us right now where you are even if you don't see yourself as a Hegelian philosopher even if you've never heard the name Hagel this world view has infected America as well it's infected all of western thinking and we're gonna take just a little more time in explaining progressivism infectious nature its religious nature.

"Johnston. Former student of mean street, so we came to meeting street because Nathan was diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder when he was eighteen months old. And Nathan was profoundly autistic. He didn't talk touch him. He didn't play English was like he was splitting to Chinese had. No idea what we were telling him about. Through intensive therapies. He just kept getting better. And better meeting street taught Nathan how to talk and this was on the communication book called picture exchange. That was created here as you can see is Nathan on. Just sort of sucked in language, even though he couldn't speak and his icons became more complex where he had nouns verbs sentence strips on Nathan didn't eat when he started at meeting street school.
