"menendez" Discussed on 10% Happier with Dan Harris

"Are you okay? 'cause it will last question here. Because I'm thinking back to my couple minutes ago, soliloquy about the difference in how I show up in the world as a white guy and my deficiencies around kindness and the fact that that might not resonate with some women but given how they've been brought up. And it reminded me of another thing you talked about in the book, which is coach K, how do we pronounce his name, the duke basketball court? When I was doing the audiobook, they were like, okay, wow, you really don't know how to say this and we're gonna, so let's call him coach K for now, but yeah, he has how many national championships do you want? Do you know? No. I don't follow. A ton, a ton. I played middle school basketball. And there was all of this sort of all of these pieces that have been written about him where it's like, you know, he's just so he coaches like a girl. And they mean it as a complimentary thing, which is to say that he is relational and communicative with his players and there is a value then and how they play on the court as a result of that. Right. What I found interesting about that is in terms of management style and that's doesn't mean you're a manager, just in how you are in a professional environment or in any of environment actually for men, I don't think many men think there are actually really important female coded traits that we can incorporate into our style that would be very advantageous. And I also think you alluded to this over the course of this conversation, but we're all emotional, right? And I think one of the differences women are conditioned to allow to be grappled with their emotions were men are not conditions. It's a way in which I think we underserved boys and men, and that manifests in our personal lives, but also manifests at the office. And vulnerability, that to be a vulnerable person is often seen as a potential demerit as opposed to be seen as a point of connectivity that can actually make you a better manager, a better leader. And I think opening those things up for everyone gives all of us just more room to run, more ways to be. I mean, we're as prescriptive with women as we are with men. It's just that the ways in which those prescriptions are limited happen to be different. Before we go remind us of the name of the book and where can we find you on social media and if we want to binge everything, Alicia Menendez, where can we do that? Yeah, I'm old enough to have a URL with my name, Alicia Menendez dot com. But yeah, I'm on Twitter at Alicia Menendez on Instagram at Alicia Menendez XO. And I'm on Facebook because I need to know what my mom is up to. But the book is called the likeability trap and it's a thing that I would love to be in conversation around. So if you do pick it up and you do read it, let me know which questions I can answer for you. Great job. Thank you. Thank you, Dan. Thank you, Alicia. Glad we had a chance to rerun that. Thanks as well to the people who work incredibly hard to make this show.

"Than women's issues and I'm now speaking in generalities, but women are, as you said, socialized differently. So it's a very tricky thing because the areas in which I fall short, I see a gender root to some of them. And so how to write about kindness in a way that will appeal to both or to all genders, that's really a big writing challenge for me. I look forward to reading. Okay. Before we go, I want to ask you about one lesson. No, I want to say one more thing. You guys made head of hair. Thank you. Appreciate that. Well, because in the book, I perseverate a lot about losing my hair, so that's why they wrote it. So it wasn't their fault. One last thing, because you have all these pithy phrases in the book and there's one, I just, we hit most of them, there's just one I want to get to before we go, which is I want to see if you're any closer to this or having to be thoughts about this, which is the Cardi B effect. Yes, oh, thank you so much for bringing that up because I feel like we've had this conversation in the context of gender and really that's like one wash we're on top of that you add race ethnicity, sexual orientation. I mean, they're just so many ways that people are contending with this question of likeability. And so Cardi B effect is a phrase from an NPR, a woman wrote a piece for NPR, cinema, and she talks about how it, it's the velocity of Cardi B is a cent comes from this branding rooted and specific authenticity. Just in case somebody doesn't know who Cardi B is, she's a famous rapper. Yes. And she came up in some ways as this reality insta star who was completely unfiltered. And that, you know, the she has this little accent and flourishes to the way that she speaks and uses her hands and dresses and that the authenticity is what I was entrusted, right? This perceived authenticity because I think it's hard to ever really know if someone's being authentic. And by the way, she seems not to care. What other people think? Right. And though also there have been moments where I have watched her take down her Instagram account because the feedback loop was getting too much for her too. So I think even people who purport not to care, have their limits to not caring. Someone made the distinction to me, even though she's not driven by likeability, it doesn't hurt any last one people don't like her, which I think is important. Anyhow, back to Cardi B it just women of color is really what I had on my mind with the Cardi B effect, which is like, can you be so authentically yourself as a woman of color as a person of color in a workplace, be lauded for that and get to do you? I'm not sure you do, right? Most of the women of color that I interviewed felt that not only were they in some way adjusting their performance based on what was expected of them as women, but also were contending with a set of other challenges by virtue of being black or being Latina and in many cases being the only person in their office who was black or Latina or one of a few and having a real sense people had that there was a way other people expected them to show up and to be and how quickly people were to stereotype them. And that can be something sort of innocuous like this woman who had gone to an office event where it was a potluck. And she was Mexican America and everyone kept being like, that's 7 being dip was awesome, and she was like, I brought the sugar cookies. I'm not sure. Why you have assumed this to really sort of more nefarious things like having conversations where there are racialized racially charged language use and calling it out and then becoming the problem in the meeting because you called it out. And so in as much as this has to do with gender, I think it also really has to do with being the other in the office in any way that you can be the other and people having an expectation of the way that you're supposed to show up. And there can be a flip to that too. I mean, I'm Latina. I very much identify as being Latina, I have this name where Alicia Menendez were when I show up at the doctor's office, people are like, are you sure? 'cause I'm just not what they were expecting in some way because I am so white presenting. And I've received feedback that I should play it up. I mean, you can't see I'm using our quotes would play it up. From bosses. From, I think from well intentioned mentors, just this sense that it would be beneficial to me if people could read more easily that I was Latina, which is obviously wrapped up in stereotypes and bias, but that there was a sense of what a Latina should look like, sound like dress like. And if I could do just a little bit more of that, then that would be beneficial. And of course, there are probably even more Latinos who get it the other way, where it's like your accents a problem. The hoops are a problem. There's sort of always a sense of how we're supposed to be..

"This is the 10% happier podcast. I'm Dan Harris. Every so often, here on this show, as you may know, we rerun a favorite episode that stuck out for us for one reason or another. Today, we're revisiting my interview with a remarkable person who everybody should know about her insights on work are as relevant today as when this interview first was posted here on this feed. My guest is Alicia Menendez, who is extraordinarily poised, seemingly confident, undeniably successful. She's a TV news anchor currently on MSNBC before that she was on vice ABC News fusion bustle on PBS. She's a mother of two with a Harvard degree. She's the creator and host of the Latina to Latina podcast. She was named broadcast journalism's new Gladiator by Elle magazine, miss millennial by The Washington Post and a content Queen by Marie Claire and her dad as a U.S. senator. So on the surface, at least, she's got her stuff together. And yet, as you're going to hear, she has struggled for a long time with a specific kind of insecurity at work. She was weighed down by overthinking and excess focus on what other people think of her. When I first conducted this interview, Alicia had just written a book called the likeability trap, which is all about, and I'm going to quote her exactly here. It's all about this dynamic in the workplace where women are constantly doing this dance of being told they're too much or not enough, and they need to modulate. She calls it the Goldilocks conundrum. Where either you're too cold or you're too hot and it's never just right. Quick note here, if you're a dude and you're listening to this and you're thinking, okay, well, there's not going to be anything here for me. Let me just say that if you're married to a woman or if you have a daughter or a mother who's in the workplace and you want to play a useful role, this is an interview you should hear. And if you find that the psychology that Alicia is describing describes how you are in the world, she's got lots of interesting strategies that she has employed personally and you're going to hear all about them in this discussion. In the conversation we talk about the aforementioned likeability trap, which is actually a series of likeability traps as you'll hear her explain. We talk about the structural imbalance in feedback for women and men in the workplace, which got me thinking about the massive difference in the kind of feedback I used to get when I was a male news anchor as opposed to my female colleagues. And we talk about things for men to consider as they engage with women in the workplace. There's a lot here and she is, as you're about to hear, just a really sharp mind and a great storyteller. Just a quick reminder, we recorded this back in 2019, pre-pandemic, so you're going to hear me reference my work on Good Morning America, where I no longer work. This podcast is sponsored by better help. One of the big issues I've been working on.

Ukraine vs. Border Wall: What's the Better Investment for America?

"Play another piece of tape here. Senator bob Menendez predicted quote strong bipartisan support for $13 billion of humanitarian military aid to Ukraine, play cut one 15. Today, I hope, on the Senate floor, we will pass a 13 plus $1 billion Ukraine bill that will give them more lethal assistance as well as we see from the pictures that just took place on your program. Humanitarian assistance, and I believe there will be strong bipartisan support for that as well. And then finally, we need to keep finding every way to tighten the noose around Putin's neck so that this barbaric war can stop. So you hear that, senator bob Menendez says we need to spend the $13 billion of this barbaric war can stop. I agree we should try to stop the war. How does supply more weapons stop a war to a weaker opponent? That prolongs a war. And that might be the right choice. Maybe, you know what? We need to make sure Ukraine fights Russia forever till Russia leaves. They're probably not going to leave. Putin has no choice. He's only going to further escalate this. What's the off ramp or our leaders thinking of how we could try to broker peace or try to broker further conflicts of defense contractors can make more money? I just want to play a tape here that just really frustrates me if I could be perfectly honest. Okay. It's from a couple years ago and some people say Charlie, this is unrelated. It's totally related. It's president Trump saying, quote, we're talking about a wall for our country for at most $20 billion. I could do it cheaper. I need about at most $15 billion. And it'll be better than anyone could ever see. So president Trump with a Republican House and Senate was asking for the same amount of money nearly the same amount of money that our Republicans rushed and were enthusiastic to go send to a country in a far distant land that we do not have an allegiance or an alliance to that is corrupt, laundress money and full of oligarchs, and yet when Trump asked for it, no Republican leader was willing to fund a southern border wall as we saw 2 million people cross into our country illegally last year. Play cut one 18. And we're talking about a wall for 20 billion, 15 billion. I could even do a cheaper. I have to. And it'll be better than anybody's ever seen a wall. And so Trump was asking for $20 billion. And ask yourself, what is a better return on the investment for the American people? $14 billion to Ukraine? Or $20 billion for a wall? Which is

"That is what women are just constantly negotiating at work. Yeah okay well had to bring that out because this is such an important point and then you kind of started talking about this. There's this notion that the onus is on us right. There's all these workshops on how to step into your voice which is something that we talk about which is important. But there's all these little things that are all about what we as women can do to prove that we are capable leaders and what you mentioned is that of course. These things are helpful. Especially because we're in this now you know the message now but it might be distracting and booming us away from a more important shift. So can you talk about that. Will and i want to say. I do think that work that you're referencing is important. I think it is always good for all of us to be mindful of the way we communicate and how the way that we communicate impacts whether or not other people can hear and process what it is that we're saying that's fair. My problem is that the vast majority of feedback. That women get is critical. Subjective feedback that people love to talk with us about how we use our hands how we use our voice. How a sitting our chair. The way our blazer feds blah and shor all of that is is a piece of a woman professional ascension but one every minute that spent talking with her about how she uses her hands. And we're lucky. No so we all have had that talk at some point. It's five minutes. That's not spend talking with her about her regression analysis. It's five minutes. That's not spent talking with her about Whether or not she's had enough touch point with clients like it's not focusing on the hard skills the deliverables and the results and so there is a price that is paid for that. And so if you're like me and you've read a lot of how do i become like a boss. Bay books all those books right like they all sort of come back to meet me and i can do it and like i think that's great and i think it was always good to have more tools ending the promise that those books teach you how to survive and they don't teach you how to thrive and they don't really liberate any of us and i am much more interested and in the course of writings much more interested. In what would it take to fundamentally. Call bs on this and shift the paradigm away from this expectation. That women can be likable leading leaders that they need to be likability leaders and how often when we talk about likability. Are we really using it. As this low key cover for bias. Rate because i think that was the final way in an office setting where it is still possible to talk about a way in which a person's difference makes you uncomfortable. And so you know something that you can do for yourself if you are in a feedback session or someone shoot crystal. You know you're just sort of say okay. Thank you assertive compared to write like who else in the office. Which you say is more sort of or less assertive than i am. And then the question that i think is even more useful. Which is can you draw a line for me between what you perceive as my style and how it impacts the results of my work now you we each needs to be ready that there is a corollary between our style and the results of our work so i may say crystal you pride yourself on being deliberate but sometimes that manifest as indecision so two weeks ago we're supposed to get back to the client. You spent three days fussing around with fonts and we were late delivering it to them and we're about to lose them as a client. Okay like now..

"Way that people expect them to show up and then in some ways the one that i was least aware of was before i became apparent was parenthood and specifically motherhood that becoming a mother. Essentially dials up all of the perceived feminine qualities of a person all of the qualities that were already talking about being challenges to navigate and so women are constantly navigating around that and so. I think it's as you said there. Is this call for authentic leadership right. Show up as your full south. Bring your whole self to our. I don't know that we want anyone showing up. Like their full totally unedited unfiltered. I think the workplace requires an element of performance. But i think that that mandate is really only feel safe for people who are presumed to be powerful and presumed to be competent. To the rest of us it feels like either. They want a performance of what they expect a lot. The to be as this group knows very well that can take on like infinite manifestations and then you're working against what that person expects and sometimes you watch people do it. Looks just truly show up as the same person. They are on saturday and sunday and it lands and they're in an industry that appreciates it and they're in organization that appreciates and the person flies and we to see like so much press around that person in that person gets so celebrated and become an icon and we all wanna be them. I think they represent the minority within the minority. I think for the vast majority of us coup Identify in some way as a person who comes from a marginalized community or marginalize identity or is in the minority within our office or industry structure. It just feels really dicey as not being. Would you do on saturday league. Is that something you wanna talk about office. Is it something you should have to talk about in the office in order to be seen as a leader and so that is why i think that gets so tricky especially because we're putting the onus on the individual instead of putting the emphasis on the organization or on the industry what they really need to be focused on is creating a space really feel like you can show up as yourself and we're not doing so much thinking about that because it feels totally safe an authentic to show up as you are. Thanks for going into that. I have another question before. Say that. I just have to tell you. There's so many times this book. What i was so angry and i think one instance was this scenario where you it was like a studied you had to a male parent and a female parent report up to basically there's a crisis at work and there's a crisis at home and the woman would get damned if you do down if you don't and a man does not get penalize and so i just want to underscore that because it's like you started off saying it's not all in our head this let me say because it's probably my favorite study. I've ever read a lot of academic literature for the you laid it out perfectly. There's a imagine there's a moment in office. She gets a call that her kid has thrown up on the playground but they're also crashing presentation at work. She runs out the door to be with her kid. People think while she's really not committed to this project if she stays. Does the project people thinking wash must be a terrible mother. The incredible part is that if the dad runs out the door to go pick up his kid people say while what an incredible father and if he stays to christina's laughing because you know it's like out of a sitcom and then if he stays People are like he's just so dedicated to this team. I mean he wins in either scenario and the mom loses in either scenario and again like if you take one day that's it is like that's not in your head that's real. It is actually happening..

"That's great okay. So maybe that's another another way to approach it. Y'all don't push it way back 'cause then you're right now more time for the feelings of doom to fester inside of you okay so to recap for folks if you're feeling stuck or overwhelmed there's a couple of things you could do try to add something completely new to shake up your routine you might learn new tip like for example who would have thought that from a comedy writing class. I would have then notion of of canceling my inner editor my inner critic to write down and try a tool that will help you kinda prioritize like the matrix that unashamed described earlier which we will links and resources in the show notes so you all can visualize what that looks like it. Also incorporate practices. That will help you take action like doing them from when you have the most energy like in the morning and getting them on your calendar removing distractions and using a timer. One more thing that will add to that too. Removing distractions is also being clear with the people that you work with on the ways you want to be communicated to the one of the ways to communicate. I bring that up. Because i work with so many different folks. I have so many collaborators. And i was pushing away from getting folks to communicate via text because again i also like most of us i find the phone to be very distracting. How many of us have gone in there to check one text message and all of a sudden. You've gone through an internet whole right so i try to push people away from texting unless it's super super urgent. I really do want to think of my phone as like purely social and fun and and try the other tools that are available to us for during working hours when possible. Right these are. These are other ways that you can get that phone away. I love that. Yes yes okay. So i'm going to give him an anna shalem for giving us those tips to get over the hump of the year which is where we are right. now What we wanna do today in this episode as a returning back from break. We're really really want to revisit some time earlier when we felt super energize which is when we had an event with journal award winning journalist and writer theat menendez and i think this is such a great time to revisit this conversation because it really is about thinking about getting over those humps giving getting over those things that we did. We procrastinate those overwhelming feelings. It's totally valid to have those feelings and especially for women because there are so many barriers both professionally and socially that get that can add to that feeling of being overwhelmed. That is really what covers in her book. The likability trap so the book is called the likability trap. How to break free and succeed as you are. You all should definitely read that book. What we did is we invited a lisa and she was so gracious to have a conversation with our community was alive. Zoom event and..

A highlight from S6 E10 - Real Conversations on Mental Health (w/ Special Guest: Patricia Perkins)

"May is mental health awareness month. And i felt it only right to release an episode focusing on the topic of mental health. Now if you've listened to the podcast for any length of time you've no doubt heard me talk about my own struggles with ptsd depression and mon experiences. Not all that uncommon in the veteran community. What you don't often hear though is from the veteran's spouse and on today's episode. I get to sit down with my wife patricia. As she shares the story of her own emotional journey with mental health diagnoses medications. Hospital stays and a whole lot more. This is the we serve now. What podcast where. I do my best to answer the questions. Veterans and their families are already asking so you can make your post military life your best life by way of introduction my name is aaron perkins i am a us army combat veteran daddy to amazing kiddos. Host of this podcast. If you hadn't guessed. And i am joined today by my beautiful bride patricia. Welcome to the show thank you. I'm so glad to be here excited to talk about a subject that i'm passionate about. Yeah absolutely absolutely well. Great to have you here. I'm i'm incredibly happy that you agreed to be on the show. Usually it is me saying. Hey i'm going to be recording tonight. So if you you and the kids can kind of keep it down a little bit and but really really grateful that you here today. So today was one of many days where you're going through this. I don't know call procedure or treatment treatment. Okay so so. Obviously i went with you. Today is able to accompany you to that treatment and it specifically four depression right and so start with today. Let's start with today in a kind of what happened today. And what the treatment is. And let's start there. Sure okay so. The treatment is called. Tm s it means trans cranial magnetic stimulation menendez Treatment that oddly. Enough stimulates your brain. It's post what is supposed to do is to help the neurotransmitters talk to each other better and it is usually reserved for someone who's tried a few different types of medication for depression but it also helps with like anxiety. Ocd and sometimes even physical pain. Okay so so so. This is not a it. Sounds like it's a noninvasive. It's not a surgery type of thing so basically the way they explain it. It's like electromagnetic therapy. Where like in the old days where they would maybe cut. Open your head and maybe electric your brain things like that but this obviously they're not doing that. You can sit down in this chair. It's kind of like the big dentist chair. They strap you all in and they put this big magnet next to your head in a certain spot at a certain level. It's already been determined by your doctor and it made me last twenty minutes. And then you're you're on your way okay. So is that it's not obviously. I know this right before listeners. This is not like a one time thing. This is one of how many treatments you have to get. Okay so today was off my fourth treatment and i think if i did the math right i have at least thirty three more to go. So it's over a nine week period and because of where we live. I have to drive basically an hour and a half to get there. And then i'm there for fifteen to twenty minutes in the drive an hour and a half and and yeah i i definitely know that. That part in itself is frustrating. The drive so let's go back a little bit now so you're having this it might not be invasive but stewart pretty extreme treatment of kind of remapping your brain right yes. It's it's had some side effects already some some anger some tiredness Brain fog lightheadedness. The way the only way. I can explain it. It's like there's a big garden with a huge gate and there's all these locks and each treatment seems to slowly work open a new lock and then hopefully by the end all the locks will be open and king come open and i can be free of depression anxiety. I don't know if that's going to happen. I have faith that it can happen so hopefully it does happen. You me both you both so so take us back a little bit. How did you get to this point. You know obviously you. Have you know some sort of depression or anxiety or whatever take us back to diagnoses and that sort of thing so i i got diagnosed probably sixteen years ago like actual clinical diagnosis of major depressive disorder and house have severe anxiety. I have d. c. Ptsd so what is so ptsd. I know what is cd. Basically childhood post traumatic stress disorder. And then i have. Ocd okay so so ptsd. Veteran community intimately familiar with cps d c p s de. It is then the so. How did that come about. I mean this this is like you know really getting into the nitty gritty of it a little bit but i had parent you know. I had parents that. They weren't believers not that that makes you any less of a good parent but they were involved with things that they shouldn't have been involved with and they didn't have a good relationship with one another so that meant a very rocky relationship with their children and so without getting into too much and making people uncomfortable. This is a really bad childhood really bad and even in my teenage years there was some other stuff that was really bad. So just you know things that people don't really think about as being post traumatic stress disorder. I've heard other people say. How can you even have that. You weren't a soldier. Well that's not reserved for soldiers or servicemen period. Post traumatic stress can happen after a car accident after your home gets broken into after a traumatic. Any traumatic experience you can. Pdf st right right so so with depression. You were diagnosed. She said sixteen years ago crack and so did the anxiety diagnosis. Come along with that or out of that will work. It was shortly after. I think they at i thought maybe it was just really bad depression and they realized that it was both mint so they started treatment to different treatments who different medications and over the years between the two just the depression and anxiety. I know i've had over sixteen or seventeen medications and sixteen or seventeen. I didn't know there were that many others time for i mean i know. There's a lot of medications out there right. But most i know i i'm gonna go out on a limb here and say most people when they're struggling with anxiety depression or even if they do have a legitimate diagnosis of anxiety. Depression or both. It's okay let me go get this. Let me go try it. You know and then if that doesn't work maybe they go try something else but sixteen or seventeen that that just sounds like an extreme number is sensitive to medications and so what may work for a lot of people. Just doesn't seem to work for me. Or i ended up being allergic to it but i will say that i did. This test called a g. e. n. e. s. t. and it's a dna test and that's something that you're psychiatrists can do for you. There is a cost involved but it will tell you which medications and you know. They're all different classes. Work for your dna type so you have a red section and you should stay away from those. You have a yellow section. That may help. And then you have. A green section is more likely to help with your dna type so that can help a lot of people. Stay away from having to try sixteen or seventeen different medications. Sure sure that that's a really good point. And obviously you. You didn't take that 'til later. Right actually took it last year. Yeah so the break i. I wish i could have taken ten years ago. But i don't think even knew about it and that's another thing i would say. Is you know educate yourself. Don't wait on your doctors to find all the resolutions for you. Like feel free to look and research and bring it up to your doctor. you know. it's a good point. So medication is just one side of the depression anxiety. Ptsd just one side of it before the medication happens. There's something that either. Your doctors realize your families realize or you personally realize something different in me. Something is not working as it's supposed to or it's manifesting in in a certain way and i know that when it comes to ptsd specifically it manifests itself in a lot of different ways. They can manifest itself in anger in inability to focus and chronic pain. In a guilt it can manifest itself in different ways. So let's focus on the. Let's say let's. Let's go with depression right the major depressive disorder. How did that or does that manifest itself in your life. The first time. I realized that i might have an issue with. Depression was actually. I had a really bad episode. After i had caitlin so caitlyn's daughter. Sorry caitlyn's her daughter. Yeah she's fourteen now. After i had her. I was sitting just watching tv. And she was sitting there beside me and her little old bouncy seat. And i actually started having these really dark feelings kind of like oppression and actually that coincided with an anxiety attack as well and actually got rushed to the hospital because they thought i was having a pulmonary. Embolism so they thought that. I had blood clots. I was about to die. You know there was but it was a mixture of depressive episode and anxiety attack which i had never felt before and that really scared me and the doctors were able to put me on medication to help with that. It did not stop it but it did help. Sure sure so what what happens next. You know you're you're on this medication. It's helping look what happens. Is there a point at which you realize. That medication isn't working or isn't working as well as it should. Yeah most doctors will tell you you know. Give it two or three weeks to really get in your system if you don't see any changes or if you see getting worse than you're to want to let us know so that we can adjust or change that medication and over the years. That has happened so often. That i i got to this place and i'll say that it's okay to do this if you need to. Own your closet by yourself and cry for a little while. 'cause you're just overwhelmed and nothing seems to be working and you want so badly to be quote unquote normal. Go have cry. Go eat ice cream or chocolate or something. I don't even care. It's okay to do those things. But i got to this place where i was like. None of this is working. I need something completely different. And i think that's when. I did the insight site testing because most of the medications that i had been put on. Were in my red list more in the list that was for your dna. These are not going to work for you. Oh wow so going through this process and the truth is i didn't even realize this at the time we've been married for fifteen plus years and i knew that kept having different medications tried and you like oh. This is not working but we had no idea why. It's not working until this test. You didn't says hey this might actually work for you Yeah that's that stuff okay. So what about the anxiety piece you know. It started with an executive attack How does that manifest itself or did it manifest itself in your life. So i have an odd anxiety like i have panic. Attacks panic attacks but generally speaking. I'm just anxious and it's like my anxiety and my ocd. Like to just hold hands and frolic through my brain and so what. I'm feeling extremely anxious. I have to clean everything so it's kind of like since i can't control my emotions i can't control what's going on in the world. My brain has to find something that can control and the cleanliness in my house. I can control thankfully because you and the kids are pretty neat people. But i have to do have to be able to do something. Control something to calm down. If i don't do that ended up in the closet crying eating chocolate well like you said. That's okay if you have to do. It's not not not every day but so talked about the depression. Talk about the anxiety. Ptsd how does that manifest itself in your life on a day-to-day basis weekly basis. How how often what does it feel like said the. Ptsd is like a whole different monster. That lives somewhere inside of my person. And the worst episodes i have with. Ptsd is when my children especially caitlyn our daughter when she reaches those age those ages where you've espn we. We had talked about this a little bit today. As we're preparing for the podcast but it was as a recall kind of like the same ages or proxy ages where something traumatic happened in your own childhood right so so then. My brain is like imagine that happening to kaitlin. Imagine that having to our son. Christopher and then it's like this overwhelming like it's not a mama bear feeling is a mama dragon. And it's like i will. I will died to protect but at the same time. It's then there's this the the little girl in me is like. How could my mom have let that happen. How could my dad have let that happen. Where was the the parental. where were they. Why did these things even happened. That i have this trauma but we're all human doing the best. We can now. That i'm older i can. I can look at my pass without being completely angry with my parents because they were just doing their best as well. Sure sure so. We're won't take a break real quick but coming up after the break and now you have a few things that you want to share with our listeners. More as encouragement and continuing the story obviously but also practical steps. Stay with us. Many americans today don't realize the stress and anxiety. They feel is likely because of their finances. According to bankrate.com more than six out of ten people couldn't cover a one thousand dollar emergency seven out of ten. Don't budget regularly. An eight out of ten are living paycheck to paycheck to these describe you. Are you ready to live like others. Can't too many make the mistake of budgeting their lifestyle instead of budgeting their basic needs. I my friend. Marco over at mc business lab has a simple process to automate the basic things. You need to live and then never looking at one of those bills again. Head over to live like others can't dot com to get on the wait list for his own line course to learn this automation skill. That will significantly reduce your stress anxiety. And if you think one on one attention could be the way for you. You can also schedule your free consultation with marco once again that's live like others can't dot com get on the path to your dream life today. Alright so here we are back. Second half of the show here with my wife patricia talking about mental health. And it's okay. She's looking at me right now. She's like oh just made a noise like it's okay. Well we'll cleared up. It's fine and so so anyway so here talking to my wife patricia about mental health and about her own challenges and struggles with it. And so obviously there's no one in your corner so to speak. I mean there's the stigma associated with it but there's also no one kind of coaching. You through this of like okay. Well if this isn't working here's what you do right not currently. I've had counselors in the past. You know and they've we've tried to work through things. I have been the hospital couple of times. And i think there's a lot of people who mean well but it doesn't mean it's going to work for you and so i feel it's important that people understand that if you do have a mental illness. It's okay to research an advocate for yourself. You don't have to wait on a doctor or counselor or someone who you feel like is more intelligent or just because they have letters after their name that they know you better than you do feel free. No not feel free. Please speak for yourself. that's huge. That is so huge. And i think that advocating for yourself is such a critical element of getting the help you need. Because when i think of veterans who are struggling right. You know whether whether it's a physical health or mental health concern. They know themselves like better than anyone else knows them and so when they go to the doctor when i as a veteran go to the doctor i have an obligation to myself right to be as honest and as really a as direct as i can like look. This is the problem. This is how. I'm feeling. I'm here for you to help me fix it right. But then there's the stigma especially in the military community. Where if something isn't working right in your brain you're not working right. Oh absolutely that is the stigma is is really and i think the worst thing about mental health diagnoses today at least in america. If not all over the world it absolutely needs to be normalized that your your brain is an oregon and just like your heart and all your heart muscle but you could knees your liver. If any of those things were failing if they weren't working like they were supposed to have so many people around you. Hey what can i do for you. What can i do for your family. Could i get my blood tested to see if i could be donor. How in the world could make your life better but you hear someone is in a three month depressive episode and they can't even get out of bed. I don't see people lining up with casseroles. I don't know. I don't see that happening. You know if you have to leave an event because you had an anxiety attack there's whispers. There's not help this is strong. It is so strong. And there's a you know within the military there is a fear and i will say rightly so that if you say hey i have this particular mental condition it can potentially impact your career and in the civilian world because well as a mom i if another mom i don't know maybe somebody's going to hear this and maybe they don't want their kids hanging out but as a mom you think. Oh can this person actually take care of my kid. While i'm away or is everything issue going to be too overwhelmed. Is she going to have some kind of attack. That i don okay. If you know somebody like that. Just educate yourself right and know that that person wouldn't take on that responsibility if they didn't feel they could handle it. Yeah absolutely and you know. That's a critical point to is. There is so much misinformation out there about mental health. And you know here's the thing. Hollywood doesn't help and i'm not going to rant. I'm not. I'm not trying to say like oh. Don't make movies about people with mental conditions. You know but there is this you know. The joker movie that just came out with a joaquin phoenix. That's joker yeah. Okay so you know. He obviously has a mental health problem. It looks like severe depression and he turns out to be this mass murderer. Right and so people associate edison. He's bipolar but go ahead. Fair enough fair enough so people associate those mental health conditions with something so extreme that they saw on a screen or read an article. now there are extreme cases. it's true. I mean you can't just say that that. No one is that bad off but there are people that bad off that they're not usually the people who look like they're doing okay. There those the people who are really struggling there are more signs right than than you just meeting them. Like if i just walked up to you and said hi. My name's patricia. Perkin tie you doing. You would never think i had five mental disorders right. You know someone. who's that far gone. You know they're going to be showing signs. Oh yeah absolutely for sure for sure and you know the thing is when it comes to mental health when it comes to you know having a a severe enough level of mental health challenges concerns whatever. You wanna call them. If you don't have an official diagnosis right there are so many. I guess levels is probably the best way to put it of of severity. Because you know like saying. Hey i'm feeling depressed for a couple of weeks is a far cry from major depressive disorder right okay. Yeah may i believe probably should have been a little more research but it would be depressed for at least six months before. It is a clinical diagnosis. And so there's going to be events someone dies. A friend moves away. You have to switch jobs then you could go through a you know a few days or a week of feeling depressed. That's normal. yeah exactly. That's the normal depression. That's not the go quick. It'll medication so you can feel better. That's right it's just a normal life happens and you get down and i've even had people say to me. Well you know you have a lot of stuff. You're very blessed. You have a nice home. You have a great husband. Smart kids you you you have you have you have you have. That has nothing to do. With what my brain is doing. I have the intelligence to know that. I a blessed person a blessed individual but that does not mean that my brain is going to let me enjoy all the time. Yeah that's so true. That is so true. And so i just saw an article earlier today from cnbc said fifty one percent of young americans are struggling with mental health. Fifty one percent. I can believe and i think a lot of that if i can just put in. My personal opinion is social media. I'm sure you constantly see people who are throwing up. There highlight reels on instagram. And some of them still on facebook and then those who are throwing out things on twitter but there you're not getting their whole life you don't read what's actually going on. I mean if people looked at my facebook they would see highlights. Because i want to show the good. I don't want to show the days. I don't wanna get out bed. Showed the days where. I'm like begrudgingly. Driving my kids to school because i have to. I'm an adult to do these things. You don't see those things and especially the generation under us. They're so obsessed with social media that they think that's real life. I mean i have a good life. But it's not insta worthy like everything. I do isn't gonna be popping up on instagram. Because it's not real life right. That's just advertising then like you said it's just highlights right. Yeah and so. I want to go back to the stigma piece for just a minute. Because that's a piece that i'm really passionate about and you know in the military you know being healthy being fit to fight. That's part of the job if you're broken your broken leg unit can't use you to go to war right. You have to get that leg fixed. I if you're broken mentally your unit may not be able to use you to go to war because like there's something wrong with you and like the. The thing is with the stigma. It's okay in you know outside of the military that things that your body or your brain is not working like it's supposed to and i've heard so many veterans so min- countless veterans really be rating their brothers and sisters in arms when they talk about having. Ptsd like your combat. Experience was different than mine. Therefore you don't have ptsd or you can't be depressed or you can't be anxious like you're just whining because you want to get paid from the va. You want the va to take care of you. That's ridiculous it. It really is our veterans out there who just looking for that that extra little bit of money out a month sure. There are but by and large the majority of veterans who who are having the courage to stand up and say. Hey i got something wrong in my brain. It's not working like supposed to. They should be applauded and say you know what that is. Surreal courage that you having right now to go and say i need help. Yes it takes a ton of courage and just in time out of being a military spouse and then my time out of it and interacting with veterans and even people who are still currently serving. They they have these but they don't even know how to say it out loud. They will become an alcoholic. But there's nothing wrong with me. I had no problem with war. Or when they get out of the military you know they get hooked on drugs. Oh in the military didn't affect me very much. I'll have i don't have any. Ptsd that that crazy stuff you know or all of a sudden. They're wife isn't good enough. Their kids aren't good enough and they want to be away from them at all times. They don't want that interaction but they say they're fine because they're afraid to say i might be broken inside and might need some help. So instead of having the courage to say that they are literally ruining their lives in other ways right what alcohol would drugs with breaking up their homes with neglecting their responsibilities. That's may there's so much i want to. I want to fix it right. I want to fix the stigma. Problem wanted but there is no easy way to do it. But i think what we're doing right here is having the conversation for the world to hear that. Look it's not just veterans. It's not just veteran spouses. It's according to that article. Fifty one percent of young americans who are struggling with some sort of mental health condition right regardless of what title you go by better in active duty man woman boy girl. Mental health is no respecter of persons. I'm sorry mental illness right. No you're right and mental health needs. You know it doesn't matter who you are. What are what color you are just like any like. I said any other body part in any other thing. That may need attention. Don't be afraid to give it that attention. Don't be afraid to speak up and speak out. Don't let the stigma hold down. Yeah for sure so from our conversation today. I know we're running up on time. So we're gonna wind this down and you know. Obviously you and. I have talked about this a lot and me in the future. I'm sure we will get you back on the show and talk and talk about about this and how fixing your life especially how the team s treatment is grain because he you know. I'm not afraid to talk about right. My inner demons especially can help somebody else. I feel like i feel like god puts us through situation so that we can help other people and if we can't take the bad and turn it around and help someone than what's it for and i have to have faith that it's it's to help others. Sure sure so. We have alluded to these three big takeaways right like the big takeaways from this episode. We've alluded to them throughout the episode. We've talked about them. We've even said them but remind us remind listeners. What those big three takeaways are from listening to this. I would say the first one is to advocate for yourself like i said. Don't be to research. Don't be afraid to figure out what might work for you. Ask for the jewish site testing. Ask for even if you've been on medication for a long time talking about the s you know there are other ways to go about it than just constantly saying in that cycle of pill after pill after pill with no results there. There is light at the end of the tunnel. So don't be afraid to say. Hey i think this might help me. What do you think. Don't wait on them. The second one i would say is. Don't let the stigma prevent you from seeking help Let's there is nothing wrong with you. If you have mental illness nothing like innately wrong review. You are just a person who is struggling and number three. I would say no that you are not alone like you were saying that article fifty one percent of young americans. This isn't even us. The older americans during these are young americans who were struggling. You're not alone. find group. fine fine started group. It right to you know. Don't don't stay alone either. When you isolate yourself things. Things often get worse so definitely seek out others who may have similar problems going on that you can talk through to to have some sort of accountability with and accountability is huge. It is huge and those are the three big ones. But i wanted to add one more. And it's something that i've done personally and it has to do with what i was talking about with social media and it's so funny because our pastors just said at this sunday delete block. You do not have to look at sally. Suzy sampson's and wish it was yours. Delete her blocking her. If if watching her highlight reel is taking your joy. Delete her if mr man who has it all together all the money all the muscles and the most beautiful wife you've ever seen if that stealing your joy delete him bought him because you need to focus on you and yours is so good. That is so so good so patricia. It is been an amazing conversation with you. I wanna thank you personally. Thank you for your courage to come on the show and talk about not just health in general but your own mental health your own struggles with the diagnoses. You know you've had hospital stays as a result had so many things going your life and so thank you so much for talking about this important topic with us you know. We all have a lot of questions but the most important question you can ask yourself is. This have accepted the forgiveness of sins. That only comes through faith in jesus christ and before we go one thing. Patricia wanted me to point out was earlier. she referenced. cpt. St and she called it childhood. Ptsd it is actually complex. Ptsd would she informed me of later in complex. Ptsd is brought about from long term trauma that might be physical emotional sexual abuse own going childhood neglect things like that. It could even be a prisoner of war type of situation that brings about complex. Ptsd so just clarification. There that that was what she was referencing in the second. Half of the episode. You may have heard probably did hear a lot of clicking in the background while that clicking was my burien husky running around on a hardwood floor and unfortunately we can't edit that out he just kind of made a cameo appearance on the podcast so that dog is the way i deal with my ptsd and depression having a pet. It just helps a lot so anyway. Thank you so much for listening. It has been a joy sharing our hearts with you today. Be sure to check us out on social media. We at facebook at courage to fight again. Instagram also occurred to fight again and twitter at courage again and check us out on our website at courage to fight again dot com a whole lot. More resources there well until next time. Thanks for listening. We served now. What is a production of courage to fight again.

Democrats unveil immigration plan with 8-year pathway to citizenship

"Congressional Democrats today introducing a bill to remake the U. S immigration system. It's called the U. S. Citizenship Citizenship Act of 2021, unveiled by Senator Bob Menendez, Democrat of New Jersey, and California Democratic representative Linda Sanchez, among the highlights that includes an eight year pathway to citizenship for those people in the country unlawfully. If they arrived by January, 1st of this year. It would also lift hurdles for those workers to legally immigrate to the United States as well. Azad financial resources to border screening and replace the word alien with non citizen in law. Senator Menendez, announcing details during a zoom called earlier today. Under the status quo. We still prevent family members from reuniting legally in the United States because of lengthy backlogs and delays. We still send graduates educated in our great universities back to their home countries, instead of allowing them to drive innovation here in America, and we still make it too hard for companies to hire the workers they need to innovate and force American workers to compete. With exploited undocumented labor. That's why we today collectively are introducing the U. S. Citizenship Act in the Senate in the House legislation that brings to life President Biden's plan to restore humanity and American values to our immigration system. It's our vision. It's our vision off what immigration reform should Look like and it's a bill we can all be proud of. It will modernize our system or for a path to citizenship for hardworking people in our communities, reunite families, increase opportunities for legal immigration and ensure America remains the powerhouse for innovation and a beacon of hope to refugees around the world. I can tell you is the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. But I must say that beyond enhancing security and improving management of the southern border, our legislation also finally addresses the push factors forcing so many families to flee Central America in the first place. Transnational crime, violence, corruption, poverty, lawlessness, the prior administrations. Naive fixation on the wall failed to alleviate these horrific conditions. We must address the Underlying root causes driving migration and create safer processes for those in danger to apply for asylum. That's how we stop ourselves from winding up in the exact same place down the road, and that's what this bill does. Now there are some in Congress, I'll say from both parties who argue against going big on immigration reform. Some still believe the answer lies and blocking all legal channels of our immigration system until we get our house in order. Others say we should leave the bigger, tougher questions for another day, pursuing narrow reforms that nibble at the edges and leave millions of people behind. Personally, I couldn't disagree more with both approaches. That from Senator Bob Menendez, Democrat from New Jersey, the chair of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. The bill does have the support of President Biden issue his statement earlier today, available on the White House

US withdraws from open skies treaty

"Treaty that shares air surveillance data. Teri Schultz reports Open Skies treaty signed and ratified by 34 countries other than the U. S allows members to conduct surveillance flights over each other's territory. It's considered an important confidence building measure. US notified the other members six months ago that it believed in Moscow is violating the treaty by blocking fly over access to certain areas and said it would pull out. As a result. Almost a dozen European countries issued a statement at the time expressing their disappointment at the US move. Then candidate Joe Biden also criticized the decision as exacerbating tensions with Russia. New Jersey Senator Bob Menendez, the top Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, says he expects President elected Biden to rejoin the treaty for NPR News. I'm Teri Schultz in Brussels.

"In the specific example that I am now obsessed with of you and your dad. At all so isn't a a misunderstanding of how self promotion? When you were doing something like writing a book or putting a product out to the world. Isn't about being self-congratulatory it's a part of the work. It's part of what you have signed up for. It is part of the commitment to have made to your publisher to your book agent to the audience that you are trying to reach like it is. It's great to write a book the real you're you're sharing a message and you're actively trying to get that message out to as many people as possible because you believe that it can change hearts, minds, and lives and so. I would have taken that show personally like that is somewhere between the just like breakdown cry at like you know saying not nice words. But if I were in my most aligned ration space, I would hope that I could say, I totally hear that that you think it could affect. I will be sure to check in with him more generally. But I would also hope that you can understand that this is a necessary component of my work and this has more selection on on the work itself and what is necessary in order to get it done and it is on me. That's great room. So entangled, they do while I think because I did have a strong emotional response I shut down and I didn't say anything and instead I wrote an article about it. It's like I'm GonNa do what I do when I'm having a lot of feelings I'm going to write about it to manage my feelings, but I didn't address the problem. The source the problem, and I really should have because you know. I. Know we're still talking about one person and it happens to be my dad but I've also seen evidence were having those conversations is effective. So for example, he said to me at one point my dad has. Is a Republican and I am not. And he said to me at one point I guess the OBAMAS purchased a home in in Hawaii and he said, how can Obama. How can Barack Obama was the what he meant? How can Obama for fifteen million dollar home in Hawaii Maui wherever it wasn't I said well, dad his wife Michelle wrote the biggest selling memoir of all time and got a fifteen million dollar advance. So perhaps that's how the Obama family can afford a fifteen million dollar home. and. He was like Oh right like you could see that it just never occurred to him and then he did the exact same thing talking about a friend of mine how can he afford this House on a lake? What does he do that? He can afford it and I said Well Dad, his wife INSERT NAME HERE I won't out them on the podcast but you know she does this and that and sold this patent, and so perhaps it has to do with her that they can afford that how many dad that's the second time you've done that. And you know he stopped and thought and he said Oh my Gosh, you're I'm like like see how insidious these bias are that. You just automatically go to the assumption that a person can afford a home based on the mail income and he really got you know he really got it and so I do think you know it's not our job as women to educate every other male and female. You know all of the other people out there a bow these by AC- is but when we have the opportunity to call someone in and talk about it. I do think it's important to do that even though it's not easy. To get a lot of airtime today. Cows I know. He did I. Don't. Well, you know my my family doesn't tend to read what I write or listen to my podcast. Nominal yes. hyperfocused also so funny, it's okay. So I'M NOT GONNA share my curb harassment. And that's GonNa make everyone else feel better how so now it's the now we've just to meet everyone like now like it's not like there's like someone's now winning. Right right no one's winning.

"Is, instead of saying, she's helpful. Tell me what she did. She, provided all of the numbers for the quarterly reports she helped harness the teams that everybody got their pieces into the binder tiny focus on the task, and that listen that that it's a muscle you have to work right over and over again. But it's a muscle. They can have a big impact in another person's life in career because it sheep's the narrative around earn who they are. Are they help? Are they a visionary? And that it's a minor difference. But if you can get there, it can have a big impact. Yeah. I. Have a quote from you. That's that's related to this that was in an article. And you say quote the constant chatter about how women do their work and how women lead makes it nearly impossible for women to lead in a way that is authentic to them rather than reimagining leadership were asking women to re imagine themselves. So this what we're talking about here reminds me of that and the other thing that made me think of is you know, are we asking women to be more like men? Like you know going back to your individual, rather than systemic, we're not asking people in power in systems to change, but also specifically were not asking them to recognize the unique qualities that women bring. That are what promote better leadership rates will like. The research shows that it's greater diversity that leads to better functioning and organizations not just giving diverse people seat at the table, but only if they act like white western. Right like if you look at countries with female leaders that are doing things differently and doing it better. But I think in addition to expecting women to change themselves and do it individually. In many ways, we're also asking them to be more like men. Yes. I think another way of thinking about it is we give len very, very narrow lane in which to theron even with men were saying show up in these hyper masculine as you said, western culturally appropriate boys and idea is to be more expensive to imagine to see warmth as a form of strength. See the ability to. John. Is as a form of strength to see the ability to ask questions to things you don't know as a form of inquiry and intellect and information gathering in that expanse. Really happens at it happens on individual level ended happens at an institutional level where. Part of it as. I said this and heard other people say. You can't be what you can't see. It's true. It's like you when you start seeing different forms of leadership, it empowers other people to say, okay that person was able to show up as they are, and that ways different than accustomed to seeing and they're succeeding and so it's not that I have to model the way they are. It's that I am being given permission to be myself and to test out how that works in this time and place. Yeah. Well said, okay. So I WANNA back up a little bit and ask you about the title of the book. So it's called the likability trap and I'm curious how you landed on that particular title, and then I wanted to talk about some of the traps that you talk about in the book. So let's take the title part I and then I can ask you some of those questions Joe, forgive me not knowing this but have you written a book? I've written to actually. So one is for therapists who do the kind of therapy I do, and then the other one is for women with anxiety the Maurice Yeah. Oh so both books. To read. I'll send you a coffee and I. I was just going to make a throwaway comment which is finding a title is the worst because you have this thing that you love and you have yourself into and Ninety percent of people will make snap judgment on it predicated on that title and on even worse that's title which is like I. If we could just get rid of subtitles, could just be like read the back of the book and eat a whole paragraph. Much. Better. I think the way originally understood the trap is what I to your point outlandish chop one, which is the goldilocks conundrum to warm to cold a woman. It seems never quite right that women. The cultural expectation is that women will be communal and warm and think about what is in everyone's best interest and our expectation of a leader is that they will be assertive driving and able to advocate for themselves. Those two things are on a collision course where what we expect of women and what we expect of leaders are diametrically opposed that if a woman acts the way we expect a woman to act people might like her, but they won't see her as leader and if Women Act the way we expect leader to act and people may see as a leader, but they won't like her. And that is particularly complicated because there are so many women like myself who were raised. To be. Ambitious. To want to lead because we do care about the group and we want to help the group achievable. But we also raised to care about what other people think of us to care about how we make other people feel which I think is a good thing and that manifest in wanting to be well liked and so to be raised to believe that you could both be ambitious and be well regarded and then to a bit later, find out that those two things may initiate moment nor society be mutually exclusive really messes with your mind. And that's new was de trap. What I realized is that that is one of several trump's I mean there's that there's this call for authenticity which seems to really run against everything I, just said you know be yourself do you but know that if you really show up in that way, you might be penalized for it or we may decide that you're not a fit. True for any person of color it's true for Queer, pledged for anybody who's not in the majority identity in the place that they are working living and then the success likability penalty. So I'm GONNA guess that a lot of people who listen to your podcasts have either readily in or seen Sheryl Sandberg's had talk..

"There were also women who did not care at all or at least weren't governed by what other people think of them. And those women to felt that they were paying a price for being so brazenly themselves and. Having disregard for the expectation that women should care about what others think of an and that became much more interesting to me than my original question right that it wasn't as the this was just an internal process. This was an external expectation that really had to be reckoned with, and so that became the core question to your point about the launch incident in my own life. I found it really challenging to pick just in part because this desire is so deeply ingrained in me and it's culturally ingrained in me the way it is in a lot of women in a lot of sensitive people in a lot of high achievers. But. where it started, the friction started to come up for me was that I. Have this career broadcast journalism. I am a public person, and so I would do things like go on the view a lifelong dream to be on the view I. Think it's a very common dream for a lot of people and the advice that everyone will give me was the yourself. Just be yourself. And because I am someone who shape shifts to very often accommodate who arrived with I don't rule that I know who that is. I don't know that I have such a fixed sense of self that I know how to show up as one person rather than being a person or being who I am in relation to others, and so that experience of being on our show in the lights being on never been like, do you like Almost thirty at that point. I. Have No idea who that is that to me is the closest I can come to identifying a catapult moment. That's so interesting because you know now that I'm thinking about this, as you're talking, I think something similar is what really drew me to the book, which is for me. One of my most important personal values is authenticity and in my clients as a clinical psychologist in my clients I find that this is a common personal value as well. And that it's something that my self and my female clients tend to struggle with most and it's not just about who am I? What does it mean to be authentic like you're saying but it's I feel like when I'm authentic there are some hostile to that right like there's this part of me. That does all this people pleasing and accommodating. And that gets reinforced. and. Then when I try to be more authentic, which might mean being assertive or saying something someone doesn't want to hear or maybe like not being humble you know like maybe I'm GonNa tell the world about some of my successes that there are negative consequences to that and not that that means it's not worth doing but it's this double bind, which, of course is what what the book is Abou. We're just not honest about that. We I, there are a lot of. Instagram means that I saved to my phone that I hope we'll just by osmosis change me right like do you don't care what anybody else things or you know any quote about authenticity because it rarely captures the other side, which is we live in a society culture and we have relationships were there will be penalties right where it's like if you speak up in your office or in your workplace about a problem, very often for women and especially women of Color, we become the problem right that people say like Oh like is this really a problem where she being difficult and that I think complicates the picture at the same time that we're shouting at people be yourself do yourself be authentic? Okay. But then we have to be honest about the fact that you have to create environments and workplaces where people can do that. Not Be penalized for it be rewarded for it, and where we we're all agreeing that we are comfortable dealing with end the expansion, the cultural expansion that needs to happen to allow that to be possible. Yeah. Yeah. Absolutely and I think you know what's happening in politics right now is bringing that a little bit more to the forefront. It's creating more of a conversation around the expectations for candidates to be likable. You know we've we've heard Kamala Harris was being accused Oh she didn't apologize after she had a debate I believe was the criticism there someone else was being criticized for being too ambitious I mean these ridiculous statement. Or they both come at. Yeah. I mean things that you never hear being said about male candidates in the fact that it's happening I think is causing people to talk about these things. More Itani because as on on MSNBC where I work talking about about this about both of those attacks that have been launched against Comma Harris, and then of course, on twitter, there is the secondary conversation where people are like but it that's the same for right men have to be able to if they want to run for office and it's not the same when there's all this research that shows that yes. While voters in general prefer a likable China debt they will vote for a man. They don't like as long as they believe that he has competent. In lament, has to fear both hurdles it woman has to prove that she is competent and then she also has to convince voter that they like her and look at. So so messy for women candidates professional women is that improving our expense. We inherently, accomplice like one can take a variety forms. It can take the form of a straight a stem student having the perception that she is not fun because she clearly is so committed to her work can have the effect of a woman just being very assertive in very able to direct and lead a team not conflicting with the expectation we have of women. So what I find so interesting about women candidates is. What happens to women in the workplace is often very subtle and often happens in things that are unsaid and so with. Politicians, we are literally asked for our opinions of them. We're asked in public polling. We're asked in focus groups, pundits on television and talk about it, and so I watch it through the Lens of these are the things they say about all winning when we're not in the room. Yeah. Absolutely. It was reading an article recently that talks about these exact things that you and I are talking about and there's a woman I'm forgetting her name but she's at a law school in California and she talks about as gender judo and this idea that as women we can be more of as long as we're also warm right that like will allow you to have some of these characteristics that are seen as more male dominant that women shouldn't have as long as you layer on top of it these more feminine characteristics, and then maybe you'll exist in this tiny little bubble where will accept you as being both likable end competent it's exhausting. Advice, comes from Joan Williams who has done a lot of work in this space and I in the process of writing a likability chopped really tried to be fair about the fact that that. That is good advice for survival and an secetary, and I also believe that each person each woman needs to do what she needs to do in order to survive and thrive in her workplace, and that is so specific to who you are and your workplace. There are very few blanket pieces of advice that are just going to work for everybody because being psychologist is very different than being a journalist and and you were very different than me. District, and at the same time it sort of aligned for me what I think has become so limited about the work that has been done around women and work, which is that the last wave of this has been here's what you can do you jill in order to maybe survived maybe thrive. The problem with that is that it has shifted the focus away from institutions and systems that really need to do the changing themselves in order to liberate someone like you to show up and be your most authentic self and lead in the way that is most authentic to you. It has also created this sense that a woman is both responsible for her problems in the workplace and responsible for fixing them that in the well intended. Canon of empowerment. That there has been this misunderstanding that now we have all the tools and we have all the answers and we can just fix inch ourselves and not if we don't..

Three and ten years I think that's something that's getting overlooked here. animal kingdom always dreaming. authentic. Things did not go as planned when that gate opened on Saturday? Well I tell you. I was expecting that the we're GONNA break a little slow and I? Even said it. Before they raised a couple of his did I did you know?

So horse is not. Hundred percent spending properly, and You Know Eight, hundred, ten, th there for jumping number good and even. He's not very quick from the gate. So with watching he's prior races and being the last one and go into the I I was back to not. On the other hand I knew he was going to be quick. you know to to get too close to the lead or BMW before we get, we get to the to the turn. So you know I didn't wear so much and I think even if you the way broke, I kinda wane gradually you know going into the lead before we get to the first time. Were you surprised that no one took advantage of the lackluster break and that you were able to clear by the time you've got that I I. Well I. If we look back at the race really there was only one. One speed horse in and teeth the law and I knew he was not wanna go to delete or you know that's not the way they they actually wanted them to you know and listened to Berkeley and and and prior to that you know the just like to suck somebody and so on. And other words Park elope is I thought he probably go to the lead and and I was willing to let him go if you wanted to do obviously when we pass it pass the wire for the first time in and see him and he wasn't going to delete it. So that was my turn you know to. Okay. Let me go ahead and do what Mars you want to do. You always talk to us here on the network about playing you leave the paddock with plans a to Z with a horse like authentic. There's really not much and you know you know he's GonNa break a little slow at least you did he's not going to break that sharp. You're going to be on the lead I'm sure after you watch the Haskell.

Senate Holds Confirmation Hearing For Trump's New Pick For Ambassador To Ukraine

"Update now on two important diplomatic vacancies. One is the post of U. S ambassador to the Ukraine. The last woman who held that Senate confirmed job was a central figure in President Trump's impeachment. And now the president's pick for the job is facing some lingering question in his own confirmation hearing. NPR's Michelle Kelemen reports President Trump's ouster of the ambassador to Ukraine featured prominently in his impeachment trial. Marie Ivanovich face to smear campaign by Trump's private lawyer Rudy Giuliani, who had been pressing Ukraine to get dirt on Vice President Joe Biden. Senator Bob Menendez, the ranking Democrat on the Foreign Relations Committee, says that's still happening. Giuliani Esteban, Savory Ukrainian characters have not let up their efforts to use Ukraine to interfere in U. S politics. Others in the Senate seem intent on amplifying their efforts. Menendez wants the new nominee, retired Lieutenant general Keith Dayton, to avoid playing into this and avoid any meetings with Giuliani. Senator I'm not going to commit to that, because I believe that as an ambassador, I would have the obligation to meet with any U S citizen and hear them out. It was a home. Dayton has been a defense attache in Moscow, a security advisor for the U. S on the Israeli Palestinian conflict, and, in recent years has run the George Marshall European Center for Security Studies in Germany. He's well versed on Ukraine, but his answers frustrated both Menendez and another Democrat Chris Murphy. So at the end of the hearing, he did offer this reassurance. Ify is the U. S ambassador and key Have any indication that there is any kind of election interference going on using Ukraine as a azalea ever to do that? I would, of course, report that directly to this committee. I think you have a right to know that I think I have an obligation to report that to Dayton says his priorities in the country, if confirmed, would be to help Ukraine fight corruption and beef up Ukraine's Navy and Air force. Next door in Belarus. The U. S is reviving diplomatic relations in part because of Russia's aggression. In Ukraine. Career diplomat Julie Fisher has been tapped to run the U. S embassy in Minsk. Our relationship with Belarus languish for more than a decade. But after Russia's illegal seizure and occupation of Crimea, and it's manufactured war in Ukraine stone best region, we began to see signs of interest from the Belarussian sign. Belarus recently bought US crude oil to decrease its dependence on Russia and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo visited Minsk earlier this year. But the's warming ties will be tested by an election this Sunday, and Fisher face questions about that the first component to ensuring that we can continue to grow this relationship. Not see steps backward in the conduct of this presidential election. The long time ruler Alexander Lukashenko is facing a united opposition in the run up to this election, and his regime has been cracking down. There will be no international monitors, though Fisher says the U. S embassy will be watching the vote closely. What we are trying to get Johnny is basically to ensure that there is space to ensure their space for more than one voice. In this country. Lukashenko kicked out the less U. S ambassador to Belarus in 2008 after the US accused his government of human rights violations and tighten sanctions. Michelle Kelemen NPR NEWS Washington

The Menendez cut from yesterday Senator Bob Menendez is the one with the underage girls, and the the doctor pal who's in prison and all of that good stuff. He was on with wolf Blitzer. And wolf Blitzer was talking to Senator Robert Menendez a democrat from New Jersey. Talking about illegals, and oh, the president is making people illegal just for illegally entering our country. And what you you're a lawmaker. Do you look at your business card? Blink real heart a couple of times. And then join reality would you wolf Blitzer and Senator Robert Menendez the democrat who just narrowly escaped a prison sentence a couple years ago. He's still a democrat in good standing, and he's like what what drunk driving what we call illegal aliens. Her inter-country barreling around the roads drunk without a driver's license.

And it involves leveraging corrections Republicans wanna make to the tax Bill Yale University faces up proposed class action by women who say the university muster radical sexual harassment and discrimination, by allowing female students into all male fraternities and the Senate passed a Bill to permanently extend funding for the land and water conservation fund after several lapses the measure now goes to the house Bloomberg law. Everything you need on one. Legal research platform guidance analysis and Bloomberg market intelligence. Find out more at bloomberglaw dot com. All right, Steve. Thank you. Now in other Legal News, Democrats are pushing to see President Trump's tax returns and say a nineteen twenty four law gives them the power to ask for Treasury Secretary to do just that for more on this story. Bloomberg June Grasso speaks to university of Virginia law school. Professor. George yen who testified in front of the House Ways, and means oversight committee to advise its members. And how a legal struggle might play out. Bush tells a little bit about this nineteen twenty four law. And if it does what Democrats say nineteen twenty four series of events, not actually dissimilar to what's going on right now occurred, the Treasury Secretary with Andrew Mellon who is reputed to be one of the three wealthiest people in the country, and he continued to own a number of private business interests while he was serving as secretary and questions arose as to whether he had any conflicts of interest between his private business interests. And. This is personal responsibility to the nation. Another issue involved in investigation of various misdeeds in the part of some of the top cabinet officials during that period of time in any event congress determined that it needed the ability to seek out the tax return information, which prior to that law was exclusively in the hands of the president. So the president prior to nineteen twenty four had the sole authority in the country to obtain tax return information and potentially to disclose to the public and in nineteen twenty four congress passed this law essentially giving itself where or its committees the same authority as a goal branch of government. So the Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin has said that he would review the request and respond if required by law, but he hasn't said what legal position he might take. What do you envision happening? If he's. Says no I'm not turning them over. So this statute is very clear, it it simply says that the committee or the chairman of the tax committees can request anybody's tax information. And it directs the Treasury Secretary to furnish any requested information. There's no excuse to wiggle room. That is in the statute the statute really gives him no authority whatsoever to refuse a request. That said, I guess it's certainly possible that he will nevertheless say that he's not going to do it. And if he does respond in that way, then it's really up to congress to decide what if anything to wants to do whether they try to enforce their request or whether they just wanna back off if they want to enforce it. Probably it's going to end up in court..

And the dude is a Speedo, and he's got the sunglasses on and he's walking down the beach. And you have a skier. Oh. Just gotta be me playing the a it is he looks like that did except he was wearing trunks, but I sought by accident because these newspapers whenever you see a link on social media. It's just they have it set up to where the meta data will media is is that is linked to that picture in populates in the field automatically. So I couldn't see it. I feel like you all need to see it to just too. So I have company misery, but they went to a seaside resort. They they went on a junket. They went on a it's the bold pack c h c bold pack. It's a winter retreat in Puerto Rico. Apparently, they're having it right on the beach. The Hamilton creator lin-manuel Miranda's there. They did he's doing a two week run of his play Friday in Puerto Rico speaking in last Friday, and they're raising money for artists and cultural groups after hurricane Maria, and they have all these Democrats down there on the beach putting on that song. Content. Oil putting on the block just getting off Greece up for a day at the beach. Having some drinks taken them chartered planes down there. Meanwhile, they're screaming at everybody else. About well, you have to think of the federal employees that are being affected by the shutdown. Well, Trump is in DC Rahel, hell you all at. Oh, you're you're literally on the beach. I mean, literally standing in the sand on the beach. Okay. Well, there's your there's your concern. Bookmark that because next hour I'm going to tell you about some polling. There's two different things to look at here. And I think I really wish that Republicans would really push the fact that, hey, while you all are dealing with this. This is what Democrats are doing in Puerto Rico their chilling there on the beach, and San Juan there have fun watching some plays having some drinks catching some rays some waves all of it. That's what they need to be pushing. But I have two polls coming up for you. And they illustrate two very different realities. It's very interesting. We're going to dive into that. Also coming up next. The halftime show Arielle jazzed about it. I'm not gonna talk about the Cowboys in Rams. We're not talking about that. I'm not having that conversation. Because it's an evil one. And there's nothing to be nothing. Good to come from it. Sock. But. The halftime performance performers have been announced everybody, and I I have some feelings on that. We'll talk and we have Florida today in stupidity all kinds of really good stuff to get to still as we get moving on our Monday back. Here ZipRecruiter is something that's been helping businesses really get those people for their for the positions that they desperately need to get filled because we have more jobs than people now. And so it's really really competitive about their job boards that send candidates that aren't qualified for the role that you posted. None of this is helpful right? None of this is helpful. Why would you me that doesn't help you at all that just makes it to where you have a stack of paperwork to deal with right or you have those job boards.
