You could tell by the slow somber rendition of sweet child of mine. Tragedy is about to strike. So i was wrong. These kids are going home.

Helping Children Thrive in Preschool - What Teachers Can Do (with Mr. Chazz)

"Really and that also includes myself and so it was really important for me to do work that i enjoy doing but also to help other people enjoy what they're doing whether it's teaching whether it's parenting it is finding know what their passion is in. So yeah this just very organically happened and when you know you're y no matter what happens situations can change what changed for me and for everyone was the pandemic in the quarantine. Everyone went home. The teachers went home. The went home and the parents became the primary teachers with their children. Twenty four seven and they really really struggled and really didn't know what to do. And as i saw especially really through social media. We're all home. I really saw an opportunity to help. But it's been really exciting for failing and just validating my life's purpose to get messages in every day come. It's messages saying that. I have changed people's lives and their relationships with their children. And that's what it's all about really feel like that's what i meant to do. I'm so glad you're out there doing most. You're very much needed. I think right now that some people have children that are in care centres and in preschool right. And some people don't so there's there's both out there right you said that your centers are open. Have been open for awhile. Yes all of the centers in my district. Nine schools are open and have been open. There was school that closed for a couple of weeks but all the others have been open. So what i want to ask you about is a question that i received often from parents. What do we do. What do you do. And what can parents do. When a child is having difficulty in these situations the maybe they're disruptive or they are not following directions. They're not quote listening. They are having difficulty making friends and thriving socially in the classroom. What do you look out. What do you consider. I get a lot of questions about this. Honestly probably every parent's worst or one of their worst nightmares to hear feedback from the teachers or the people caring for your children. Your child is having problems. And they're hitting or they're being disruptive or they're not following directions there a problem in the group. So what do you do when you come across this with a child. What do you look at. So the very first thing is observed to really understand. Why the behaviors happening a lot of people. Focus on just the behavior so you mentioned hitting a lot of people will approach. The situation like heading is the problem. I'm here to tell you and it's going to shock. A lot of people that hitting is generally not the problem. there's an underlying black scale or underlying social emotional challenge and the result of that is the hitting and so we have to as the caregivers at home at skoll really observe especially when these behaviors are happening and really a lot of data is their time of the day. The behaviors happening. Like what are the patterns was happening before what's happening during what's happening after to really identify what that underlying problem or underlying challenge is that the child is having in these situations so for hitting a lot of times. The problem is lack of ability to express themselves or they don't have the language to solve the problem. Maybe it's over toy so the child might be hitting because they wanna toy and the way that they know how to get thanks to a physical means right and it's not their fault and a lot of times we get so frustrated you know like you say none of our emotions even as the adult or wrong now as adults we have to in these situations manage our emotions during this time and respond thoughtfully so that we can be in a place where we can really help them as opposed to making this situation worse. Because if we're not able to manage our emotions and then how do we expect to teach the child to not just react emotionally. When they have a problem that they can't solve and most of the talking is going to happen now in the heat of the moment. Most of the learning is going to happen when you're talking about it later and so that's something that parents and teachers can do to kind of tell the story of what happened prior and talk about ways to handle the problem that they're having now. The other thing too is developmentally appropriate expectations a lot of times. We're expecting a two year old to share when they physiologically cannot do that. There were expecting wait for long periods of time without getting antsy and moving around and so sometimes we don't have developmentally appropriate expectations here also be the emotional climate and the room energy really does affect the emotions which affects the behavior right so for teachers constantly saying no no no no no and is yelling at the children. That's going to create a lot of stress in the room. And then i'm more likely there's going to be biding. There's going to be heading now. A lot of what. I've talked about up to. This point has been things in the classroom and know there's parents out there like okay.

Do you have one of those seasons or stories that you share with us?

I came out here to work on cease to be there, and I had to figure out what my next steps were. There was a lot of anxiety about what am I going to do next? I had this interest in starting my own company. I had seen an opportunity and I have never done this before. So I threw a lot of friendship through a lot of love from people like my wife and other people around me through prayer. I decided to take this jump.

Magnetic North Interestingly, actually moves constantly based on the turn of the earth and all kinds of other factors, and that concept always kept me in mind that requires a dynamic appreciation of what it is. I'm going for my vision today is quite likely going to be consistent with different from division.

"Super committed to your success online. We've worked with them to a special offer just remarking school listeners. All you have to do is go to dream host dot com slash marking school to learn more and get your website online today. Welcome to another episode of Marketing Skoll. I'm Eric Su. I'm Neil Patel and today we're GonNa talk about seven content tools that will make you shine. So number one I as those of you that are watching the video, right you could tell him blue right now right I look like star wars character and I can make myself smaller bigger and things like that. But the first tool is called I think it's a terrible name Um. It's M H M m DOT APP if you want to get access to it, I believe it's invite only right now and you can requested an invite but this is from the creator of evernote. and. Thinking about it this way right now, we're all hanging out on video calls all day, and you need a way to stand out. It's really good presentation APP at first like why don't even need this and I started using it more like there's a lot of cool things that can make myself smaller to put myself if I want to emphasize something on slide I, put my face right next to it. I can make myself fade away and so you know I. Think it's great like fading away right now but you can go check it out. IT IS A. Open to apply I think it's free to use at the moment and so it's an open Beta or private. Beta and for anybody that does a ton of calls on Google or zoom try to. Number two checkout flow, and they have a content decay to a within their. What's interesting about this is you're gonNA write content most your old constable start losing traffic over time. If you use the continent decay tool, it'll tell you which one of those are losing traffic's. He can go in some update them, and then that way you start getting more and more traffic is to update content that's losing traffic first versus focusing on updating content s naturally doing well in keeps going up. Call number three is co schedule I. Think there's a lot of scheduling tools out there that you can use but Cole schedule Co schedule that see, oh, schedule it had stood out to me over the years because it just makes life easier especially continue need to coordinate your efforts they have done pretty well as a company so would recommend them. Number four is polly laying. So if you have a blog, the easiest way to grow your traffic and shine is to translate into multiple languages in polling helps you do that. It's a wordpress plugin. Slash tool allows you to go after multiple regions at once. All right number five, this is not exactly a content tool I mean, it's more of a workflow automation tool of Zappia, but think of it this way when you're creating new content. You can have say we do this podcast. Well, when podcast comes out because our our podcast s feed, we can automatically push to Google spreadsheet. So we have all of our podcast just showing up in their we could also push it into. We can push to wordpress along push an email out if you want, we can set up all these automations and if we think about content as game I, mean there's a lot of moving parts that's the game that you're playing and so it's hard to manage all of it. So it's better to automate a lot of the the mundane tasks that you're working on. Number six restrain if you are going to create

The 7 Best Hacks for Your Facebook Ads

"Super committed to your success online. We've worked with them to a special offer. Just remarking school listeners, all you have to do is go to dream host dot com slash marking school to learn more and get your website online today. Welcome to another episode of marketing. Skoll I'm Eric Su and I'm Neil Patel and today. We're GONNA. Talk about the seven best hacks for your facebook ads, so go first the first one around facebook ads is. I have been loving same with my team. Do the offer that we're pushing right now. We just love looking facebook library facebook. Ad Library I also at the same time. I like looking at what ads people running on Youtube and Google us into a call at beat for that, but by doing this competitive analysis or even looking at people are not direct competitors I get a lot of ideas and the ideas that I get their super important based on how facebook ads are designed, because the one thing that matters the most is your creative, and so if you can get. Get ideas from people that are running a lot of creative. It's GonNa save you a lot of time, and it's hopefully going to help you move faster. This requires a little bit of work, but if you rotate up your creatives, really really often like I'm talking about Multiple Multiple Times a day while you'll find is when you upload a new creative within the first few minutes. Jason tries to push more traffic to it to see how it does. Clicks tend to be cheaper impression. Send to be cheaper and then normalizes that you actually credit on the campaign and keep switching. Very very often. What you'll find is right when you switch him up. The numbers tend to be a little bit better number three so I mean people talk about. They've been talking about messenger out for the last couple of years we've had Mickael from many chat on the leveling up podcast before, and they're doing really well crushing mobile monkeys doing well and. FACEBOOK MESSENGER ADS. Depending on the business that you're in to be able to engage with people to drive ads towards your facebook, messenger bought and to be able to help them based on what they're looking for the segment people that's powerful, so I, still think not a lot of people have tried it i. still think it's worth look again. You can use a tool like many, or you can use a tool like mobile monkey. Number Four. Take your check page. Anyone who doesn't convert creative video talk not what it would be like to be a customer whether selling your product or service showed an video. You can even have customers on their with video testimonials edit the video pop it up as a remarketing ad, it'll be one of your heart is converting ads out. There works out well cool and similar to that thinking about when you're doing facebook guides I like retargeting people with even more content right so what I mean. mean by that so for us. Let's say someone visits ourselves marketing page so instead of telling them to convert directly I give even more content on it right so I spend maybe could be five to ten dollars a day. Trying to its elegant, we have a lot of people that reached page will use a daily unique reach option, and so we're gonNA reach unique people each day, and then they're just getting more impressions. They might not necessarily click on our ad, but the impressions count right because. Because we talk about the rule of seven, maybe be the rule fourteen, but you want to get as many impressions as you can on these people, so we're not spending a ton of money, or we're sending even more relevant content at ten dollars a day off SAS content targeting people that have reached maybe a middle, the funnel page or bottom of the funnel page, and then we're just constantly staying top of mind so whenever they're ready, they can take an action right, but it's look nowadays you. You already know people have landed on that page. You might as well take full advantage. I'd just be everywhere on facebook. ADS are a great way to do that.

Tuition costs were high with. There wasn't much money after paying tuition, so we were you know for growing up compared to everybody else that we went to school with. but my mother always made everything best she could. She kept their house beautifully clean and everything Zenit Place. So the struggles came later on in high school when my parents divorced. Ono. Can you tell me how it felt when your parents got divorced? I I never saw it coming It was the end of my sophomore year. I was sixteen It was devastating because I never saw it coming I. always we all worked. We always all had part time jobs after school so I wasn't around a lot between school and John My job. So I didn't see it coming, and it was devastating for all of us. It meant leaving our. You know at my life as I knew it for sixteen years behind. So? At. What point would you say was the most difficult part of the journey for you throughout your parents divorce process? In having to move twice and go to three different high schools was the top having to start over. New People I mean I'll a very outgoing person so I, didn't have a problem making friends, but regardless your new in a skoll and. Trying to make friends, and you know trying to sit in. so my junior year I went to one school, and then my mom remarried, and I ended up going to not ring my senior year, which was a public school, my first time in a public school which I loved. Wow, that's acting. That's such an interesting journey. I've never.

The Most Successful Cold Email Eric Has Ever Written

"Super committed to your success online. We've worked with them. To a special offer just remarking school listeners. All you have to do is go to dream. Host DOT COM slash marking school to learn more and get your website online today. Welcome to eight other episode of marketing. Skoll I'm Eric Su and I'm Neil Patel and today we're GonNa talk about the most successful cold email that we've written so I think a while back we've talked about the nine word email. This is from a copywriter named Dean Jackson. He's legendary in many circles. So the nine word emails basically this. Let's say I sell houses and Neil often to my list. Neal's not ready to buy a house necessarily but he just likes my website. 'cause I have the best houses in Beverly Hills or something so you know maybe six months down the road I might send Neil evil might hit my entire emails Neil. Are you still interested in a home in Beverly Hills right? That's not necessarily nine words. It's roughly nine words. But it's a very simple email that you can send to your list and it drives engagement because you're evoking curiosity kind of the point last episode that we did but it's also interesting and then also you got to keep in mind that people are not necessarily ready to buy immediately when the Ogden fearless but maybe later the timing might be right so you send us every could be every quarter could be every six months or so and I cannot. I mean doing this for our mastermind. That's worked well. It's gotten across a couple of mastermind people for growth accelerator. I've done this for phone. Calls for the agency phone calls for our agency accelerator program. It just works really well at. It's so simple. Most people tend to over complicate their emails too much. Some of my most accessible emails have been through using this my most successful cold emails were emailing the CEO of large corporations some publicly traded. First off you can google and find their email right. There's a lot of tools like violent norbert or hunter dot. Io where you can try to find the email addresses and email like. Hey John and a really super busy you can forward this to your CMO or whatever department trying to get a hold of. That'd be great. I've away to boost your sales or boost your traffic by X. Y. and Z. percent. I won't bore you with the details. Hope you're having a wonderful day cheers. Neil and I don't know this person but a lot of times they'll actually forward it is what.

But Neil and I. We did get deepening conversations. And we've done this in the past. You just find out what the people are interested in. Neil you reached out to someone that was kind of going through a scandal and discuss a billionaire. And you got that person to respond yet. It's all about what angle can you end up playing?

But I didn't have any friends and these girls decided they didn't like me. They said I hate Helana. I remember this girl costs called me. Hel Ena is so traumatizing. Third Grade and my teacher. Who's really really means to me as well and one time. I had to change in costumes for a school project and I made the silly eight-year-old choice of thinking. I could just change in a corner of the room and no one would notice and instead of being here. I'm GONNA come cover you but you shouldn't do this in the future. She said Halloween. What you doing in my whole your turn. It saw me changing and started harassing. And you're fine and I had my one really good friend But she was really liked by everyone and I was you know so I want to reset like. Maybe she'd come and hang out with me and when she did we'd have these incredible talks a wonderful but she was so popular that somebody is she wouldn't and I don't really know what the Fuck I did those other days but it was really really painful for me. I don't remember. I don't remember the feelings that I had that came to me. And then I realized I kind of became in this cycle of retraumatize myself because in middle skoll. I was with a lot of people that I had been in school with. Sense that point and obviously those things were long gone. I had a lot of friends I had friends in different places friends and all my classes and I felt pretty pretty decent but then I decided that I wanted to transfer schools in the middle of the year and in my head it was this thing of public school. It's more exciting and you know someone gave me the idea to do it while a friend of my game the idea and I was like you know what I'm GonNa do this. I'm going to switch schools. Also one of my best friends had transferred to school earlier that year so I was like many. This is the Whitney this meeting manner. Yeah there's like this will be cooler and I'll get Experience because I you know Catholic schools can be Pretty Tame and I saw you know whatever but then I went through the same thing again where I was in new kid middle ear and it was insanely difficult for. It was incredibly difficult. They got so anxious when lunch happened. Where the fuck to say. I mean I remember all the new kids that came into our school. Get like bullied and God.

Let's get into this conversation with Shira and I hope you enjoy high sheera. Thank you for joining me. And welcome to nutrition matters podcast. Thank you page so excited to be here so excited to finally have you on. This has been a longtime comey. I now feel like we talked about a year ago or something. Yeah lots has happened since. Then which is exactly what will be talking about today. So Oh so sure. Will you take a minute and just kind of introduce yourself to any listeners? Who might not already know you or be familiar with your work. Sure so I'm a therapist. And I practice in Chelsea Manhattan and I work with eating disorders disordered eating body image and all from very passionate health at every size framework and. I'm also a start up. Fashion Blogger where it really. Just basically exclusively only fashion and then transitioned to being very vocal about health at every size an inclusive fashion. And the and you know and I started talking about my own eating disorder recovery and so is kind of a whole bunch of stuff on my blog as well. When did you start? When did you start your blog? I started my blog right when I graduated social work school so I guess at this point it's been like seven. Years has been quite a while and talk about what you do there and kind of what the mission has been. I'm so I'm very passionate about making sure that the fashion that I share is as inclusive as possible. I wish I could make sure. There is options up to size forty and fifty and beyond but unfortunately our fashion our plus size. Fashion is still so problematic so I do my best at least include up to size twenty six twenty eight and as much as I can. And that's the minimum that all make sure that we have listed but basically it's just important to me that nobody this is not another place where somebody feels bad about themselves or not included. Because that is I feel like happened so much everywhere else and I wanted to be where you get it from me as well. Yeah you're also really passionate about rainbows and sequins UNICORNS mentioned colorful. Oh my gosh. Yes you're not gonNA see anything remotely minimalistic on my tape. That's what you're looking for. Go somewhere else right. No no no. That's to sad for me. That just makes me sad all the color full color I love it. I'm wearing a tie dye sweatshirt that you were. You were excited about today. So I'm I'm probably going to steal it from you somehow across okay. Maybe we'll we can find it. I'll find where where my sister bought it. Send it your way very come on a mission. Okay so so sure you have been a therapist. You said for seven years. Yeah I graduated Skoll twenty four and then I started practicing four twenty five thirty one now. So yeah so and you've always been in the eating disorder field in your entire career. Is that right yet? I mean when I first started kind of happen accidentally. I had my own disordered. Eating disorder passed. And so I thought you know I kind of thought what we learn is you. Don't go into eating sodas if you have an eating disorder. It's I kind of just stayed away when I was working in general clinic so I saw everything and everyone And then I saw client. Who had an eating disorder and I was like? Oh this is what I WANNA do. This is what I mentioned you and so the my supervisor kind of agreed with as well. She didn't know my history but she felt like I did. Good work so she kept giving me more eating disorder clients and then I kind of just kind of when I realized that. That's what I really want to be doing. And so then they actively pursued it so tell me like what clicked with that first client like what did you. What did you feel? What did you love about it? I just felt like I love kids and I. That's what I was seeing. A lot of. That was fine by was getting bored. And then I saw this client and a wasn't board and I was excited. I was passionate and I felt like I just I got it and I WANNA be careful to say that just because I have my own eating disorder. It doesn't mean that I think I know. Whatever else is what everyone else's experiences are like. Everyone has such unique stories. And that's really important to to know but I just was able to get this in the struggle on a level. Maybe that other people might not in so I just fell just important and it just felt like something. I don't know I was meant to do this. Kind of just like that. Unexplainable like this is what you're you're called to do. This is what you WANNA do. Yeah and I think also because I had a few clients who were never never felt safe in their bodies and I was able to be a therapist that again like work from a health at every size framework even instinctively before I even had the words for it when it first started. I think that was important for me. Knowing how I grew up in how unsafe I was larger body. I never ever wanted anyone to experience that and so if felt pretty good to be able to provide that for other people.

What Works Better For Affiliates? Niche Or General News?

"Welcome to another episode of Marketing Skoll. I'm Eric Su and I kneel and today we're going to talk about what works better for affiliates niche or General News. But first we kinda need to explain what we're even talking about here. So in general when you think about wire cutter wire-cutters a perfect example of an affiliate website which reviews a lot of the best tech products out there. So anyway you go there. You can read the best reviews there. And then the general business bottle is you. Click on the link. They collect a commission from it. So that's an example of an affiliate site. Now there's different classes. You have buzz fee or business insider. They actually do affiliate as well. Amazon actually does affiliate you think about it. They're marketplace they collect a percentage of the sale. I think it's fifty percent. Maybe I don't know I think Neil you can confirm that are questionnaires. Do you WANNA go. General where it's like Amazon. Or if it's the new sites or you WanNa go niche which is more like wire cutter so I actually came up with this topic because we read a study from Glenn also known as Viper Chill and he actually did a study will reveal what what what his study said afterwards but yeah let's start with with Neil. What do you think in general? What do better and why I would say niche websites? Because you're then more authoritative figure on that topic and I believe it will help convert more plus believe it also help drive more traffic in the long run so you guys are all familiar with about dot com about dot com is a website that was about everything and eventually about dot com does a dying business. What they decided to do was split up their site into. I believe it was five or six sub sites. That were more niche specific. What they did is. They ended up using around three hundred thousand posts. They also had a remaining nine hundred thousand posts that they weren't doing anything with so they deleted nine hundred only kept three hundred. Put it onto roughly six different sides got rid of about dot com did the thrill one redirects and funny enough. Traffic exploded in a good way. They got way more traffic. It was so successful. They took one of their sites out of the six or five whatever was left and they broke it down into three further. More niche sites and by doing that trapping again exploded in a good way and they got more and more traffic and their revenue went up drastically. I think it was like forty something percent. It was a ridiculous number. They ended up releasing the stats data on it. Overall GOING NICHE. Nali can get you more traffic but it helps you build more authority entrust which then can help increase your conversions to kneel point if you try to be everything you end up being. No one. People want to go to specialists at the end of the day right. We think about when you go to a doctor for specific need. That's why you go to a specialist and sometimes you might go to general but oftentimes. I don't know maybe it was like a foot doctor or something like that. You don't WanNA general Doctor Right. That may be bad analogy. But I'm looking at this this It's on detail. Dot Com so just type affiliates surplus searchers pages detailed dot Com. You'll find it and there's a chart here so it says number of first place rankings in one thousand affiliate populated surfs. The niche site has five hundred. Thirty four hyper. Niche site has two hundred eight. A general review site has one hundred fifty six and a news. Eighty three right so this basically doubles down on what? Neal is saying again. Would you think about G to their affiliates site and they review a lot of software products? Now they're kind of getting into agencies as well wire cutter focuses on tech and then there's a home based one as well right. You WanNa keep them. Google is going to look at your site if it's like a general site while maybe they might not give you as much credit but just like with Your Business. You focus on one area. You don't try to be everything to everyone. You're going to do a lot better that way. And you'RE GONNA end up generating a lot more cash flow at the end of the day. Neil this pretty much from I think you covered it. Spot on and it may be counterintuitive. Because you're just like wait. I WANNA go abroad. I WanNa go after everything and I WANNA make the most money by throwing out a big blanket. It's really hard to do with one. Website surgeons don't want this. They want specific site to rank while which is what drives a lot of affiliate income. So that's what I would do and you also need to build a brand. So when you're going niche is not just about doing. Seo or for people you'll send you a brand because if you're not building a good brand it's gonNA become harder harder to generate revenue. A good example of this is the points guy. He talked about credit cards and reward cards and he built a huge brand and then I believe he sold forty million or something like that is ridiculous amount for him. There was something like that it was out there on one of the websites I read. It could have been off speculation but he sold it for sure that we know how much it was in the figures. I just don't know where the figures

Teenage Therapy Podcast; Mental Health Issues

"Hi everyone welcome back to the teenage therapy gail. I'm Thomas I'm mark. Kayla in welcome back to the PODCAST is it here yeah is not here. you know surprisingly we haven't done a an episode on depression. Have we knew it was the second episode. I don't accepts it but I know we. We have really remember it so it's been a long it's been here. I think are sad. Hours was Kinda about mental health. You know no but it was a nominee. People know that's what it's about because the title is set hours yeah. Could you imagine if we kept naming are episodes like that yeah you. I know well. We know what he's about that episode iconic Sarah Bread Hours. We're GONNA make that into merch approach in I don't know about that but in this episode we want to talk about stuff regarding mental health mental issues and stuff because I know it's a very important topic for some of you and it is for us so let's let's get added the it's cut to the chase and now ease into so have any of you struggled with mental house any aspect of it or to any degree. I mean obviously I've like gone through periods. Here's a time where I just feel like sad everyday but I don't know if that counts as like depression I mean how long was how long has added like a month. Maybe one was is like last year. Yeah do you are you. I'm I'm fine. I'm fine. Now I was going to ask you what was the reason Oh. It was just like family stuff yeah yeah. I don't know if that counts. I don't think it was depression but I don't even know like how do I know. I don't think you know unless you're with you truly truly know unless you you go to get a diagnosed adopt but sometimes it kind of seems obvious like you're probably depressed you know. Have you been sad every day for three months. You have thoughts about killing yourself then. You're probably depressed burn. That's another topic we'll get into waiter and I don't think it was like depression depression anything. I was just going through. Something stinks yeah team things. I don't think I have experienced a specific type of mental health illness but I feel like I've definitely you experience a factor or a causing factor of it which is stress. I've definitely become stressed out from school and Family Family Pressures Ashes and friends and all of that yeah basically basically that did did you ever talking to quietly. I'm sorry you're Kinda like whispery but I get it. I get it I get divide your whispering but I get why you would be aggressive. Soothing this episode guy is probably going to be a little more soothing. I kind of feel really relaxed Spain. Why not yeah we actually we're in a better speed. And what are you trying to. He carefully the words Kyle. I'm ahead out okay. Let me restart but yeah this episode will probably be a lot more calm and relaxed and we won't be screaming as much as we did in the last episode anyways Thomas. What about you. Have you ever experienced any mental into health issues. Yeah like in the past episodes. I've mentioned before but I've gone through more. You're stages that I'd like to wow you know have gone through. I mean it's been a rocky journey. That's all all I can really say but it didn't like okay so the oppression I hit me and I was like entering middle school or something during that time but my it was when I came out and it was this whole family yarmuth thing and so that really messed me up mentally and maybe unstable for a good year or so oh and then just other things that I mean. I don't really want to mention but I've always there were times where I felt felt like everything was getting better like I'm getting happier but then he always went back to the way it was where I was just super. Sad Dad and stuff and it was really bad during freshman year. I don't remember if it was driving your software you honestly. I just think like every I is enter middle school and from that point on I've just been like very mentally unstable times where I felt myself getting better and at the moment I definitely feel myself getting better and this time I kind I mean. It got better for a few months but this time it's been going on for a good amount and hopefully it stays like that so you're doing good right now. You'd say yeah I'm doing better. have you ever been medically diagnosed with depression of no no. I I would not want to go to my doctor and all that why not because they're my parents get involved and here's again involved why not because it just. I don't know it's just this horrid deal and I don't want my parents to stress out about that way about your health. Yeah now you say anything. I want to just focus on themselve themselves obviously because I mean it's just that they have so many responsibilities ladies and one of them is me but I don't know it's just like I don't really want to talk to away doctors about it is just not very comfortable tweet but you've talked to the counselor is about coast right the two yeah yeah for a small very short time. I didn't know this very very it was it wasn't a big deal. It was more like just just someone I could talk to every now and then there wasn't you know very official. Traditional Yeah wasn't very traditional but whenever like I didn't need to talk to someone I would have them honestly about me. At the time avenues in seventh grade and of course as most people are way. We dated in Eighth Grade Right Yeah we had it for like two years so I've Cassini you are I was. I was with you throughout these times where you were Kinda. You know really struggling so I know were you were like and how you acted and I noticed You always told me you just you don't believe that going to therapy will help so can you explain why obviously at the time it was just so hopeless you know because when people suffer with depression they obviously don't think it'll ever get better for them and they just don't have a sense of hope or a a motivation to get better because they don't think they will and at the time. I felt that way and I didn't think going to counsel I mean oh I think to a therapist who would help me even though it probably would definitely would have by the time it was just like Whoa. There's nothing they can do about it is just the way it is you know and what about having your parents get involved. Why do you think it you will be seen as a burden I fighter would have just been seen as a burden because my parents are always working and they barely ever get like rested or do but during those restaurants there are also busy with other stuff so I try to knobby so inconvenient for them. You know any. Do you think work is more important to them than their son. Part of the reason why I was struggling so much is because of my relationship with my parents so you didn't trust them yeah yeah. I just didn't really trust them. What what about now. I trust them a lot more beverly I mean my dad has always been very a lot of mood swings so it changes. Sometimes he's really nice and very outgoing with me and then other times. He's just very angry and just ignorant. I guess I very closed minded. Yeah closed mine in but my mom was yes definitely gotten better. I think he I realized that like because okay so when I was growing up. I cried a lot. I was really sensitive and then so everyone would call me a crybaby and especially like my relatives and I was like you know that kind of hurt but anyway so my parents always just thought that Oh you know he's just sensitive whatever he has to get over this at some point but so I guess when actually did become like it wasn't just my sensitivity but my actual like like mental health. They just assumed it was you know me being sensitive in me crying about dumb stuff but I think my mom I just realized that it's a lot more than that and it's like stress from Skoll and all that okay so you think they just got used to you crying crying today. You know that there's a difference between you being mentally unstable and you just being sensitive right. I remember this time where after that incident with the counselor like the the beginning of the year. My Dad had a had to come pick me up and my counselor had to go call them. We've always like conroy like I'd rather just not have the counselors mention anything into my parents but I mean they did anyway so they called him and they let him know what's going on and when he picked me up he was just telling Halima counselor sensitive and like. Oh don't worry he he's just being sensitive like you literally said that counselor embarrassing for me a little because I literally just care my struggles with the counselor and then my my dad walks in and tell telling her like Oh to just basically basically disregarded like how would you react if like sewing said that to you and I felt bad for her because I didn't know what she would do in that situation do I don't even remember I think at the time like heat boy. We just laughed. Oh like I think I think Mike Council was trying her best to like explains. Why Dad like what was going on but obviously my dad's very closed minded and so well he. Did it really care enough so he just we just went home and so after going through all of that if you were to feel that way again today. Would you tell your parents I tell my mom okay and Utah. Maybe Burgess depends which let's go. Kinda sucks but that's just the way it is and you try to get a therapist and try to get a therapist or what would you would you. It was severe then. Yod Get his therapist and what about anonymous help hotlines and stuff. Have you ever tried those. No why not doc I don't know like it just doesn't really cross my mind.

I guess I did go through a pretty tough patch and my the child hood when I was like twelve years old you know how there's a pretty common the after puberty when I began puberty your home your hormones change and a lot of teenagers get depressed right. You've seen that in that happened to me which which sucked and I remember feeling very very sad. I will set all the time I definitely thought about ending my life more than once joins. The thought about a lot of times do they they. They were ongoing thoughts and I remember how hopeless I felt how badly I wanted to die.

I it was just you know overwhelming feelings of sadness and anger you felt a lot of of anger and that anger felt towards other people kind of just got trapped and reflected back at myself so I felt lonely to during this time. I remember feeling really lonely out. It was just I cry every night. Every single night I would cry and there was a lot of songs that I used to listen to on repeat because it didn't really even you know here's the the way I view it because might be a little controversial but when people get sad it becomes so easy to be in down mindset and in that mode of being sad that you get so used to it that you don't Wanna be happy again almost because that's that's how I felt I was so used to being sad and crying and honestly it's weird to explain unless you've kind of been through it but I wanted to be happy but at the same time I didn't I was just fine being sad and I guess that's part of just loosen losing hope in life that you don't even WanNa be happy anymore.

"I believe that what the president needs to do is work. This seems to be by this is this needs to be a bipartisan issue. This is addressed in a bipartisan way this. This is this is this is too politicized. And I believe that he should be working with legislators from both sides folks on the border to do the right things. And I think part of that is to talk about border security in a way that is humane. And that that tries to address the fact that most asylum seekers have legitimate reason to be here, and how do we effectively deal with that that does not dehumanize people and definitely doesn't doesn't force them separation at the border. I'm open to conversations about what that looks like. But I think that should not be done by a right wing administration trying to win votes in twenty twenty and I feel like that's the concern here and. And it needs to be done in a more bipartisan way with with with a concern for what's best for all of us. Not just what's best for a few. New York state Senator Bryan Benjamin of upper Manhattan.

I did not know that you weren't Levin LA right now. And that you I mean, I'm just so thankful that you're here because you are a celebrated guest people, I think some of my favorite fans of this show have always said you're up sodas one of their favorites. Well, I feel like it was I release into it which is very hard for me. Even though you know, I had a lot of experience listening to myself transcribing interviews in my early life. And it was hard to reconcile my voice that was very hard because I was going through very hard time. You are feeling. Ailing wall stuttering, but I think after you give me wine, then I stopped stuttering through. So anyone wants to go back and religion to that just scrub pass like I part and get to the second part where I stop stop stuttering me. Well, I think that you think that you actually we were Stephen. And I were impressed that you were because we were like oh shit is she not. Okay. So you that episodes not as bad as you think? But I will say I've been listening to myself lately like to listen, and I can't do it. So I just have to really watch what I say. So it doesn't need to be edited out because I'm not I'm not a good personal listen to its earlier tonight everyone here. No. I interrupt people. I'm terrible. No. But you don't have like a little likes and OEMs and also I was like literally stemming out on that. I think when I arrived, and I was not okay. We the me you and Stephen device a plan that you guys would str-. Wrap me to the top of his car and take me to the hospital if I didn't survive. Yeah. Because I was in a bad place while I love you girl. I know what this is. No, well, actually, it's so not true bullets to say right now. It's no apologies. Two thousand eighteen. Okay. And you did a great job. And I'm so because yeah, you cycled through a few movies to land on deadly Skoll, which was also called zephyr springs for anyone out there who loves the dual titles square on the bingo card. Well, I didn't really look up on zephyr springs. Remember them referring to it? But I really I. No, I cycled rule law is shit. No. I watched a lot of movies. I mean the lately. Like, I I was like hold on girl. I got overconfident with the last one where you're like that was a great movie to pick and assisted. Yeah. In these lit. Yeah. And then I was like, oh, I can pick a movie, and then I waited too long because I had a lot of stuff going on. And then I I watched like a whole day the next morning of movies in a row, and then I had Stockholm syndrome, and then I lost like the threat of what's good and what's bad because it was like wish whiplash. I think I watched this one. I because I love the title. I watched a joy warns one that was so crazy where they didn't even bother to light anyone else except him. They only let him through the whole thing. And it was also like laugh out loud funny. But not there was no, you know, there was no subtext then by the end of like my whole journey like the next morning. I watched the movie, and I was just so in it that I was like oh my God. Cheryl Ladd is like. Such a good, fuck and actress. Yeah. And then I was crying at this movie. I watched about Blake best friend she slept with her best friend's husband. They were like were like broS before hose kind of like at the end. And it was like so good. And I was like crying, and I'm like wool, Cheryl Lek, and and carry a movie, and I believe her. Yeah. I was never out of it. And it always these movies get you. Because if it's not the plot. It's the actor. Yeah. Like, I'm attaching to this person. They're really good at their job right now. Yeah. But you do see this is my problem and why we are troubled together, Honey because the lines get blurred real quick. I think that this is a real movie for shore. Yeah. This could do an amazing opening weekend. I'd go see it at the arc light bring a friend by the whole first row. I also think that it might be the greatest movie of our generation, and I'll say this. I think there's a case to be. Made that this movie. Is a group on get out. Okay. Yeah. It also might have influenced as what happens when you fucking John yourself right this as get out. But if you bought a group on your so fuck and right one happen before all these movies. I also think wait, oh, it might you know, that movie youth. They it's a spa movie. Okay. It might also have. I love abbey's. Okay. What's the one this influenced youth? I think it influenced youth. I think it was the inspiration. Forget get out. Okay. So you're going with the end of season three's Edward Hanson in saying that death of a cheerleader inspired mean girls? And all this your say, your unin know about that. I'm gonna listen to saying one other this, you're right. I think you're right. I think that these movies people steal. I wanna steal from lifetime movies. Why wouldn't major filmmakers why 'plain air they're trying out the dirty shit. And so they're like, okay. That's a safe bet. I liked deadly spa all cherry pick this. And this there's a moment that made me think like, maybe I'll point it out. And I'll remember the name of it. But what's the one on with Colin Ferrell and Rachel waste that taking? No, no. Okay. I'll look it up Colin Farrell. I know why I think it might have influenced that were they turned animals if they can't mate and they're locked in like this release included place. Okay. It was the whole liling was beguile. No. It was like thirty minutes. Too long. I'm I'm locking up on it now because I'm over well-named. We'll figure it out figure it out at the break and get back to people. But I also let Merican know that we are recording in my dream situation. And then we look like Britney Spears right now. Oh my God. Yeah. Or twitch streamers? Yeah. We look like Emerson the big guys. Yeah. Game. We really so we have headsets on. I'm ready to perform in Vegas on New Year's Eve. I don't know about you. I think this is like, maybe I'm a little older than you. So I think I'm more like rhythm nation. Okay. Your Britney Spears. Well, I mean, no, of course, with I mean, anyone who does this is II conic. This is an iconic move. To have a headset. So I would say any diva will do it love it. So we're going to start this movie. Not letting you guys MRs second, we're gonna listen to six from the very beginning to six twenty seven and we're going to see a cute little Cutie, blonde, boys stone or driving down the highway. Don't Logan Paul. Yeah. Yeah. Logan, Paul, but I, but there's no emotional hatred towards this guy for me. So that's the only difference like Logan, Paul and like you. Well, I was on a personal journey with with this first part because I was like this is a Logan Paul. That's prank in his mom. Yeah. He's like we're breaking up sh by this movie could have predicted Logan Paul because this happened in two thousand thirteen so pocket of seen this taking inspiration. Right. Right. But then we quickly learned he's not Logan Paul because he actually gives a shit about someone dying on the road. Yeah. Slogan. Paul would have just been like. Like, you're going shoot. Yeah. Film is for Alex. You gotta clicks. Yeah. So I actually yeah. I would say that this movie could be America's leading door moment.
