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!”

**NEW INTERVIEW**What inspires you?
A combination of nature and the human condition. how you can emotionally connect with objective phenomena. How science underlies beauty. Depending on your vantage point, whether it be biology or photography, nature can appear so different to each person- yet its equally inspiring and phenomenal.

What are your weaknesses? How have they helped you?

Bacon Cheeseburgers. They’ve never been any help. A weakness though, that I wish to improve is sometimes being too self-involved in my own bubble. It has helped me think though my thoughts.

What has been the best learning experience?

Getting on a plane to Banff with a one way ticket almost three years ago now. Being literally thousands of miles away from everyone I knew  and having to learn who I was without them.  Also living on my own and having to make time for boring adult things as well as finding time for my passions .

What, for you, is the significance of creating?

The superpower of time control. In reality, we have no control of time. It is linear, and cannot be stopped or stretched. Every single living creature shares the same sense of time. My 5 seconds is equal to your 5 seconds. This is reality. But in creative art forms, we are able to control it. For example, still photographers can stop time at one moment. Filmmakers can shrink 3 days into 1 and half hours. Musicians can divide time and transform it into a universal language. It is amazing power we own when we create

What do you think it means to be kind to yourself? How does this compare to how we are kind to others?
Being kind to yourself is recognizing (if you can) what you need, and giving that to yourself. That may mean a night alone watching a TV show, taking an hour of the day to go to the gym or read a book, maybe buying yourself a latte. Just doing things that you think will make you feel better. I think being kind to others is recognizing everyone is a person and has feelings and thoughts, and giving them space to be themselves without judgment.

How does this compare to how you would like to be seen?
Very few people actually see the real me and for the most part, I’m okay with that. But I know some people have a twisted idea of the type of person I am which can be frustrating at times because I know I’m not like that. It comes down to not stressing out about how people see you. As long as you know who you are then that’s all that matters. With that being said, it would be awesome for people one day to see me as a strong and motivated woman that makes things happen for herself.

How has your art brought about an understand of yourself/your world?

I think I interpret my life through writing. Though I don’t journal, I write every day. I work out dreams and troubles as well as anxieties through my writing, and my characters enable me to see different perspectives on a particular difficulty. Some degree of empathy is necessary to breathe life into characters that are dissimilar from oneself. This helps me as I move through the world, and meet people different than myself. I try to learn from everyone — from everything, and incorporate new understandings into my writing.
