Do you feel stuck? Well, then you are meant to be here. And my two-part conversation with Dr. Gabor Maté was meant to bring us to this place …

The last question I asked Gabor was: “What’s your biggest failure?” And he told me that his greatest failure in life was himself as a parent. (By the by, many parents would probably say the same of themselves.) So I had to ask his son Daniel to talk about that. Give his perspective.

And, boy did he give it - and a whole lot more.

PART 1 WITH DR. GABOR MATÉ

Daniel shares his personal stories, growth, and gives insight into the father-son best-seller, The Myth of Normal: Trauma, Illness, & Healing in a Toxic Culture. The result is an enlightening conversation about childhood trauma, narcissism, narcissists, dealing with rifts in parent-adult-child relationships and sibling relationships …

And - really - all of this comes down to - getting stuck - AND unstuck - in life.

PART 2 WITH DR. GABOR MATÉ

We also talk about Daniel’s work as a mental chiropractor - who helps people get unstuck, and the genesis of the two Matés’ HELLO AGAIN PROJECT, which offers a fresh start for parents and their adult children.

EP. 20: DISORDERED EATING

You need to get unstuck. Listen to your insecurities. They are not there to take you down, they are there to raise you up, to help you heal.

And listen, getting used to something shouldn’t be the reason you don’t do something good and then just allow yourself to stay stuck. If you’re not happy, instead of moving away from everything and confining yourself to your tight little space, why don’t you move TOWARDS something?
