Old friends catch up and discuss their experiences dealing with mental health. The host poses the question, "what does getting better mean to you?" Sam says it's being comfortable with yourself, moving forward from the past, and embracing reality.
What does gain very mean to you? Uh, for me, getting better is just being more comfortable in myself. Uh, being at a point where I can exist and know that everything that has occurred up to this point in my life occurred as a means of getting me to where I'm at not having any regrets or spending my time looking in the past and saying, You know, I wish I had done this differently. I wish I had done that differently. It's just acceptance of the way things shook out and being comfortable in where that landed me. Is that difficult process? Because I know it's sometimes it's difficult for me. Sometimes I have to. I just can't help but, like, dwell on the past and like wishing I knew what I knew Now to make the situation better or different situations better like, how does that process of being better come along for you? Uh, it can be difficult. Uh, usually it's it just goes. It boils down to, you know, I'll get into that kind of loop of Well, if I had done this differently, I would have ended up here, and then this could have happened and this could have happened. But then you have to remember Well, if these things that happened this way, you know, this one thing wouldn't have happened and I never would have met my fiance. I never would have ended up working for the site I was working for. When I got hired on to work with you, I never would have done these other things. I would have taken a completely different path and had different experiences. So, you know, and I value the experiences I've had. So there's no point wishing that they would go away, you know? Yeah, that makes sense. It's like knowing what you know now like everything is like a learning experience. I guess what I'm trying to say. It's like you Hey, house and past situation end up. But you have never learned what you learned. Now if a situation did to go south and as south as it went and my hurt, but like you said and more you into person, you are now and it helped you meet your fiance. Yeah, and it's not even necessarily that you hate how a situation ended up. It's more that like, if you hadn't experienced that momentary setback, you never would have ended up in the place. You are now in the good spot you are now. You could have ended up in a different spot. That is also good. But the one you're at now that you're enjoying so much, you know me with my writing, you with your podcast and everything you're doing. You know, if something it shook it out a little differently, We may never have ended up in these places. And I think we both agree that these places is kind of where we're meant to be. So who am I? Just say, you know what happened back then was wrong. I can definitely agree with that because I'm at the point now. I'm probably the happiest I've been and if not a long time, maybe my whole life. And it took some bad things happening in the last few months for me to just recess my situation and decide to take some steps to change and trying new things. This podcast being something. You're trying new things. I'm sure you're very happy being with the fiance. Someone you love. You've got all these different outlets now. Not just daily d t. So it all works out for the best, I guess. Yeah, absolutely. I mean, it's one of those things where it just it doesn't It doesn't do me any good to, you know, look back and complain when you know this is what I've always wanted to do. And this is how I got here. Yeah, It's kind of like it's like getting to get to heaven. You gotta go through hell a little bit. I think it goes, Yeah, it's an old country song. Ways I never do. It's an old I think it's a Clay Travis song. Yeah, I think I feel like I've heard that name before. Do you usually listen to?
