Alt. episode title: "Examine What You Tolerate". This week, we recount times when we've told ourselves "It's not that bad" when in reality, it was that bad--and actually a lot worse. Why do we do that? What's the price? And how can you be onto yourself before you dig yourself into a too-deep hole?
How do you actually SAY the hard things? In this episode, Laura and Meadow run through word-for-word scripts to say some of the most common difficult things like, "Why aren't you drinking?" and "Do you want to have dinner?" (when you don't) and more.
How do we speak hard truths? Following the last two episodes about truth and lying, in this one Laura and Meadow talk about the three "gates" your speech should pass through before you actually say... well, anything.
Laura and Meadow respond to a letter from a woman who can't stop lying. Why do we lie? How do we start to tell the truth? And how do we even know what the hell the truth is in the first place? (Sidebar: this is the second time this episode was recorded aaaaand you'll get to hear Laura & Meadow work through the discomfort of how *that* all went down.)
