IWS / S2E2 / Toxic Relationships

IWS / S2E2 / Toxic Relationships with Teagan + Sheila Johnston

“We don’t like going to the dentist.. We don’t like doing to the doctor… We just wanna stay moving forward at whatever cost. But if you hear something in the car moving and not sounding quite right, then you should take it in! Because you’re right! you’re right to hear that something is not quite right… And if taking it in aka talking to that person about the relationship means that its gonna cost you 5000$ and your van is dead thats better than you driving this really horrible van thats gonna kill ya. So if you’re in a relationship and you’re hearing these noises take it in… Sometimes its a very fixable thing!”

IWS / S2E1 / Community

“I feel like there’s this idea that we need to, as individuals, have all the skill sets and do all of the things and be these multitasking brilliant people who can do all of the stuff by ourselves…. and that’s just a lot of pressure to put on yourself. thats unrealistic. you’re just never going to do everything as good as when you can just focus on what they love. People should be able to focus on what they love, really delve into that, and share it with people instead of having to be autonomous.”

IWS / EPISODE 7 / FT. JUMA PEREZ

“We know that sometimes fear comes from ourselves and sort of egging on our anxieties but I think it another part of where fear comes from is from societal pressure about what we are supposed to be doing and like your obligation as a person, as an artist, as a business person. When you decide to delve into this creative world there is a process to it.. a definite process and people are always going to be a part of that, watching that. fear comes from society basically saying this is the way you should be doing and creativity is saying fuck, no, thats now how I’m doing it and those things contradict themselves every time you try to work them together.”

Listen to us talk about winter, SAD, and how we feel about the cold and our advice to beat these seasonal feels. We’re recording in Wilder this time round and we’ll be back with a fresh episode Jan 26th!

 

“I was biased about winter, I wanted to change it so much… I think not trying to change it all the time made it easier.”

“You have the power to make yourself feel warm and comfortable… Winter is about being kind to myself and not always having to live up to these weird expectations of myself”
