Roberta Rubinov

In this episode of Feel the Void podcast, we welcome Grayson, a psychology creator, to discuss the journey of personal growth, overcoming unhealthy habits, and the societal pressures that drive them. Grayson shares his early interests in analyzing human behavior and how he transitioned from pursuing externally impressive paths to focusing on his natural inclinations. The conversation delves into how mental health challenges can lead to deeper self-understanding, the stigma surrounding mental health issues, and the misconception of mental illnesses as diseases rather than opportunities for growth. They discuss the societal and environmental factors contributing to depression and the misunderstanding of mental health within the medical model. Grayson also shares his personal experiences with mood fluctuations in his twenties and how various strategies, including focusing on physical health, honest relationships, and aligning with one's true self, have contributed to his happiness and fulfillment. The discussion further explores the damaging effects of societal expectations, the value of self-awareness, and the importance of focusing on the present moment and accepting death as part of life. Other topics include coping with anxiety, the necessity for strong communities and connections, the pitfalls of materialism, and the power dynamics that influence societal norms. Grayson emphasizes the significance of self-improvement, serving others over self-absorption, and the transformative power of understanding one's unique gifts.
