"The opposite of addiction isn't sobriety, it's connection" Psychologists talk about for a good life you need to have 1. biology, 2. social & 3. psychological all in a good place. Having even just one of these in a bad place will cause unhappiness. Most say mental health is not as simple as 'taking an anti-depressant'. “The loss of sadness. How psychology transformed normal sorrow into a depressive disorder.” Feeling a full range of emotions is also considered 'healthy'. Sadness isn't badness. They say depression is feeling unhappy without knowing why, whereas sadness is feeling bad but knowing why. Sadness done well can help us know what actual goodness and treasure it.

And how can we overcome it? Johann Hari has seen our current methods fail firsthand, as he has watched loved ones struggle to manage their addictions. He started to wonder why we treat addicts the way we do -- and if there might be a better way. As he shares in this deeply personal talk, his questions took him around the world, and unearthed some surprising and hopeful ways of thinking about an age-old problem."“Civilisation began the first time a person cast an angry word instead of a rock.”"we should do one thing a day that scares us.""No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.""Women are like teabags. You don't know how strong they are until you put them in hot water. (don’t go there!)""Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people."

I enjoyed Jordan Harbinger on his old show, then I followed him across to his new eponymous podcast. He’s a veteran of the craft - while I only listen to about 1/8 episodes when it’s a guest I’m interested in, he really gets the gold out. This is a good taste of one of his earlier episodes with Ryan Holiday (who I’m also a fan of) where talk about striking the balance between planning your trajectory and being open to random opportunities.
