David Richman on Having the Hard Conversations and Connecting Through Trauma

The Jay Campbell Podcast

As human beings, we all have different interests, paths, and stories, but the one thing that binds us all is our emotions. The problem is, most of us struggle to open up when those emotions are tied to trauma.  How can we move past the collective mental block that stops us from having more meaningful conversations with our loved ones? How can we foster more heart-centered interactions, so we can learn from our pain, instead of keeping it all in? In this episode, the author of Cycle of Lives, David Richman shares the biggest lessons he learned while documenting the lives of 15 people affected by cancer.  Three Curiosity-Driven Takeaways  How to get better at having the hard conversations It’s easy to express our emotions when we’re joyful: how can we get better at expressing our trauma?  Why does hearing about others’ trauma assists us How does understanding where someone’s trauma comes from make a positive impact on our lives?  How to break free from our fear of death The fear of our mortality holds us back from so many of the things we want to do. How can we stop letting fear stop us?  Guest Bio-  David Richman is a businessman, public speaker, philanthropist, and the author of Cycle of Lives: 15 People’s Stories, 5000 miles, and a Journey Through the Emotional Chaos of Cancer, the proceeds of which are donated to partnered charities. A transformational expert, David has organized a yearly cancer fundraiser since losing his sister to the disease, and today he is passionate about connecting with those who have been affected by cancer.  To find out more, go to: https://david-richman.com/ https://david-richman.com/cycle-of-lives/ https://www.facebook.com/cycleoflives https://www.instagram.com/davidrichman_cycleoflives/?hl=en

We can all point to so many people and so many things in our life where you could say just be real. Just tell me what you're feeling. Yet you say one thing and you're acting a different way. I think the connection to our emotion and our connection to other people through our emotions is really the most powerful thing we have between us as humans. For me, being mindful of my emotions and being comfortable with them and allowing myself to have self-compassion when I'm not the best emotional person I can be; I'll try to get better at that.Thoughts on BreathingRunning is all about controlling your breath and swimming too. Breath work is important. It is an area I am exploring right now in my life. I'm being very direct and deliberate about breathing.Suggested ResourcesBook: Cycle of Lives by David Richman Book: The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle App: I have a Garmin Connect watch. I always look at my stress level and sleep info, and resting heart rate. I think that's important because it lets you know when you're stressed out. I suggest you use any app that allows you to understand your physiology and how those things will affect your moods, your biorhythms, your ability to stay healthy, your ability to be present and calmBullying StoryI had a rough childhood and one of the things I went through and how I dealt with some of my issues was to be a bully. I was bullied and I vividly remember some instances that still scar me to this day, but I also know I did the same to other people. I can understand how being more mindful while being bullied is important, but I think if I had been more mindful at the time, that would have prevented me from being a bully. If somebody would have said to me that you can deal with the difficult time that you're going through in a different way, if I'd had a safe space where I could be myself or to have somebody give me some guidance on how to come to terms on issues that weren't perfect, then maybe I wouldn't have lashed out at others.Related EpisodesGet Off The Cycle and Run; Rodney C.

SuperAge: Live Better

How do we pull ourselves out of a dark place and into a healthier, happier life? Why do we feel guilty when we take care of ourselves? How can we break the habit of comparing ourselves to others? What is the best way to cope with emotional trauma? At the age of 39, David Richman reached arguably the lowest point in his life. He was in an abusive relationship with an alcoholic, he was overweight, he was a smoker, and his health was failing. He was struggling.

So you’ve got to take care of yourself first before you can take care of others.” “Just be the best you. Don’t try to be the best them.” “If you do take one more step, that’s further than you’ve ever pushed yourself in your life.” “I want to be the guy that always believes that my best days are ahead of me.
