15 November 2020 Call-In QUESTION 1: I’m creating a philosophy show and my goodness it’s much harder to speak on the fly with coherent and engaging arguments than expected! When you were starting out your debate/philosophical journey, Stef , what did you do to become so fluidly verbose and engaging? I’m starting at square one and am looking to improve my presentation and speaking skills, outside of pure experience. QUESTION 2: Hello again, Stef. I watched your interview with Jesse Lee Peterson about forgiveness recently and it got me thinking about some things. I was raised with the Christian message of forgiveness that, “by not forgiving and holding onto resentment, it’s like you are drinking a poison in the hopes of killing someone else”. I would love to know your thoughts on this. I also have 3 specific things related to forgiveness and my journey to a more integrated self. 1. What are your thoughts on letting go of resentment towards the past that likely won’t change or for those who won’t truly repent? How about self-repentance and forgiveness of your Self? Did I have agency at some point as an adult for enabling my mother and/or ex-wives? Is ignorance an excuse and was I truly ignorant? 2. What is the difference between using your past as a tool for sympathy or an excuse to not change and learning/growing from your past? How do I know when I am discussing my past with others that I am not trying to play the victim like my mother? How will I know when it’s time to put the past in the past? 3. What are some ways to stay grounded in the present instead of dwelling in the past or worrying about the future? How long and what phases did you go through in therapy? How did you know you were progressing and did you ever feel like you weren’t ready to commit to anything? If so, what changed? ▶️ Donate Now: https://www.freedomain.com/donate ▶️ Sign Up For Our Newsletter: https://www.fdrurl.com/newsletter Your support is essential to Freedomain, which is 100% funded by viewers like you.
