Not a great fan of Dr. Drew – for people outside of the US who may not be familiar with his work, Dr. Drew is board certified in internal and addiction medicine. He is also the host of the TV show Celebrity Rehab and the radio show Loveline. While I find him to be very smart and insightful, it bugs me that he uses his knowledge to expose others for his own gain.
Anyway, in the clip below Dr. Drew discusses our obsession with celebrities. In it he is really clear, well spoken delivering great insight on the subject. He discusses our loss of understanding of what really brings us happiness and contentment – relationships and not money or power. He adds because as a society we model after narcissistic behavior of people that are not healthy, we feel empty and in pain.
A couple of days ago I wrote a post, Building Contentment With Real Values that addressed the same theme.
This is very important.
Yes, we all want the same things but how we feel, express and process those same needs is unique to each one of us. That’s why it’s so important we get to know ourselves.
We know we want to be happy. But, what are the things that make YOU or ME truly happy? We want to be safe. But how do YOU or I feel safe. We are the sum of many parts.
Learning from others and creating a community. Learning to embrace different experiences without judgement.
