The Disquiet in Men

Helping men who feel something missing in their lives

Digging in – another cost to not heeding your Disquiet

One of the gut-ripping, walking the floor at 2am is the shame that often pops up with The Disquiet.  Dr. Brown has done important research around this.  Shame is tied to being vulnerable, the very last thing most of us wants to be when in the midst of this experience.

This sense of shame is often associated with the crisis that comes with questioning the very things that brought success that feel empty, or the feeling of being out of step with the world are important forces that cause problems when ignored.

If this resonates, check out her other videos and books.  While her major focus is working issues of shame with women, she makes some important distinctions that are useful here.  In other videos, she makes some interesting comaprisons of how men and women deal with shame differently.

  1. Will Edwards Says:

    Really enjoyed the video and her challenging of the ‘If you can’t measure it, it doesn’t exist’ comment from her professor. There are many things we can’t measure, but they are real enough; and, if history teaches us anything, there are things we can measure, that we previously couldn’t even though they were there.

    Very thought-provoking.

  2. Law Of Attraction Says:

    I agree with Will, it’s very thought-provoking. My sociology teacher used to say that just because you can’t see something, it doesn’t mean it’s not perceptible by other means, like intuition. Also, he’d say that not all things that are real are true, which meant they were effects of things, and not the things themselves.

    Awesome video!
