If you ever thought “I wish I felt better” or “I wish I was happier” then today’s episode may be just for you!
In today’s podcast we are joined by Andie Murphy who is here to help us improve our own mental well being. Too often people struggle mentally behind closed doors not realizing others are too.
Andie has gone through quite a transformation after her son has come of age. After raising a child, the question arose of “what next?”
Take a listen to Andie’s journey and see how you can apply some of this knowledge to yourself!

00:00:13.469 –> 00:00:22.950
Jason Mefford: I wish you know that I had this mental well being that everybody’s talking about and I just feel well.
00:00:23.520 –> 00:00:32.160
Jason Mefford: Well, today we’re going to talk a little bit about that because, again it’s a basic human need we all want it and wouldn’t you like to learn how to do it.

Jason Mefford: Well, you know it’s funny because we were talking, you know we’ll let let people in on a little bit of a secret We talked before we hit record right.
00:01:13.740 –> 00:01:13.950
Andie Murphy she/her: here.
00:01:14.610 –> 00:01:16.440
Jason Mefford: you’re just one of those people to that.
00:01:18.180 –> 00:01:24.120
Jason Mefford: was kind of divine intervention if you want to call it, of reaching out and us getting together today.
00:01:25.710 –> 00:01:33.780
Jason Mefford: You know you live in the same places in Australia, where my wife is from I mean there’s like so many connections that we had just talking beforehand.
00:01:34.440 –> 00:01:40.380
Jason Mefford: And also kind of about what you’re doing and how you’re helping people that were very aligned on.
00:01:40.410 –> 00:01:58.950
Jason Mefford: So I want to get in and talk about that so maybe just just give people a little you know snippet of who you are how you’re helping people, and then we can kind of jump in and talk a little bit more about what is this mental well being what is it, how do you what are you doing.
00:01:59.040 –> 00:02:06.720
Andie Murphy she/her: right kind of thing, so I can do that, and yes, I agree with you, I felt we were very aligned, and it was a really good opportunity for me so.
00:02:07.890 –> 00:02:10.170
Andie Murphy she/her: Obviously the exit is Australia.
00:02:11.520 –> 00:02:27.120
Andie Murphy she/her: And yeah I live in Victoria, which is you know main city of Melbourne and area which we call melvin’s playground, which is the morning and peninsula, and so I am you know in my early 50s and.
00:02:28.770 –> 00:02:34.980
Andie Murphy she/her: over my sort of the last couple of years i’ve been looking at where my life is going and what I want to do with it, and all that sort of thing.
00:02:35.490 –> 00:02:43.020
Andie Murphy she/her: And you know after raising a beautiful boy, and my son, on my own, since he was three months old and he’s almost 23.
00:02:43.890 –> 00:03:02.820
Andie Murphy she/her: When he kind of got to that 1718 year old age, I was like Okay, so now, what do I do you know what do I do i’ve been taking care of this gorgeous boy, all of this time, specifically very consciously from the time he was about 11 or 12 I really sort of threw myself into just him.
00:03:03.870 –> 00:03:12.060
Andie Murphy she/her: And while I was doing that I wasn’t taking care of my own well being and I thought I was, but I wasn’t because I was so busy.
00:03:12.990 –> 00:03:26.940
Andie Murphy she/her: focused on him and making sure he had everything he needed, and you know life was good for him and so along the way I got to you know, a journey through some really big stuff and.
00:03:29.130 –> 00:03:43.410
Andie Murphy she/her: The biggest thing that I realized I needed early on in my life was support around my mental well being and I hadn’t been receiving that, and so I went and source it myself and I did that, through joining an ashram first and.
00:03:44.460 –> 00:04:01.140
Andie Murphy she/her: spent five years in there and took my son with me and then I took him with me on that journey, I should say you know, and then I went so I became a real yogi and got very much into yoga and meditation and all that sort of thing which definitely supports our our mental well being.
00:04:03.000 –> 00:04:12.660
Andie Murphy she/her: And then I became a yoga teacher and the other meditation teacher, including and i’m a yoga teacher, where I can support.
00:04:13.620 –> 00:04:30.540
Andie Murphy she/her: Women will all young girls that have been through trauma, so its cultural mat yoga and it’s about integrating that yoga into people’s lives, so that they can get back in touch with their body, because the Torah is trapped in the body so anyway, all of that work kind of led me into.
00:04:31.620 –> 00:04:41.850
Andie Murphy she/her: Wherever I am now in my job i’m a health promotion practitioner for a big public hospital and but my hands are quite tired and i’m like.
00:04:42.690 –> 00:04:58.500
Andie Murphy she/her: Still, not the right place for me, so I decided to join a group which is how I met you Jason and we have been fortunate enough to have a mentor that has taught us so much about life and.
00:04:59.730 –> 00:05:13.530
Andie Murphy she/her: And how we look at ourselves and how we have that choice and that ability to look at ourselves and yet we still don’t anyway, so that got me back into my coaching because I actually was a certified life coach 18 years ago.
00:05:14.940 –> 00:05:19.860
Jason Mefford: wow so you know early well early on, you were actually doing some coaching okay.
00:05:20.790 –> 00:05:27.510
Andie Murphy she/her: I knew growing up, I knew I was kind of different and there was something there that was bigger than that than I am.
00:05:28.110 –> 00:05:35.670
Andie Murphy she/her: And I hadn’t tapped into that because growing up, there was a lot of Depression and anxiety in my life and also.
00:05:36.150 –> 00:05:43.050
Andie Murphy she/her: That I had an issue with addiction, I was you know substance abuse with a recreational drug user I was.
00:05:43.920 –> 00:05:56.520
Andie Murphy she/her: You know, alcohol user and and and with that came food bingeing and also came sex addictions, and things like that, so that I had a very addictive personality which really all it did was numb.
00:05:57.060 –> 00:06:05.970
Andie Murphy she/her: All the stuff that i’ve been so fortunate to look at now it’s like whoa what’s in this bag you’re right okay let’s dive into that show.
00:06:07.950 –> 00:06:14.940
Andie Murphy she/her: You know and there’s a yoga saying in yoga no mud know Lotus you got to get down dirty and deep.
00:06:15.270 –> 00:06:15.810
Jason Mefford: And then.
00:06:16.380 –> 00:06:24.090
Andie Murphy she/her: And you shine yeah and so that’s where my journey has got me to right now and.
00:06:25.140 –> 00:06:40.080
Andie Murphy she/her: When my son finally moved down a home, I really saw how much energy and time I had put into him and had really neglected myself on many levels relationship wise I haven’t had a relationship for a very long time.
00:06:41.970 –> 00:06:48.960
Andie Murphy she/her: You know where I live, how I live all that sort of thing because I wanted to make sure he had what he needed and.
00:06:49.950 –> 00:07:04.290
Andie Murphy she/her: You know, I was quite happy to have the any depressants or the anxiety tablets, whichever way you want to look at it to suppress the the anxiety that was their way function through life I was always called a functioning addict.
00:07:05.520 –> 00:07:11.850
Andie Murphy she/her: I can hold a job, I was capable raising a child, I was capable of living, you know managing a home.
00:07:12.540 –> 00:07:24.300
Andie Murphy she/her: capable of having you know conversations and relationships, etc, etc, but everything that I was doing was behind closed doors of the nighttime kind of thing, so to speak, and if, for you know it was like.
00:07:25.620 –> 00:07:32.160
Andie Murphy she/her: The next day, the the you know that wake up of oh my God i’ve had too much to drink or have had too much to spend.
00:07:33.270 –> 00:07:46.680
Andie Murphy she/her: Too much to smoke pot, or whatever like that and i’m like when I do now, and you go you carry that hanging over and that regrets and that shame and that guilt into.
00:07:47.400 –> 00:07:55.410
Andie Murphy she/her: The day which becomes more than one day which becomes more than one week, etc, etc, you know, and you just find yourself in this vicious cycle.
00:07:56.190 –> 00:08:11.190
Andie Murphy she/her: And life was cut I was sucking my life out of myself, because I wasn’t taking notice of what I really, really need it wasn’t listening to my body I wasn’t asking my body, what does it need.
00:08:12.000 –> 00:08:29.640
Andie Murphy she/her: I was just allowing myself to live in, really, really bad habits have really bad behavior sort of thing, and so I needed to really change that so that change in all that really came about in the last three years, but, more specifically, in the last 12 months.
00:08:31.200 –> 00:08:38.520
Andie Murphy she/her: And so, when I work with my clients, which are women, because I look at the women as.
00:08:40.230 –> 00:08:49.260
Andie Murphy she/her: We are harder on ourselves than anybody else in any I feel like we are there any other species, this is my experience, obviously, clearly, on the one that I can say that.
00:08:51.060 –> 00:08:54.660
Andie Murphy she/her: i’m allowed to say that because i’m speaking from oh yeah that’s actually been.
00:08:56.820 –> 00:09:02.790
Andie Murphy she/her: So we are really, really hard on ourselves, and we push ourselves to the limit.
00:09:03.540 –> 00:09:12.930
Andie Murphy she/her: You know, we take care of everybody around us, it could be small children could be animals, it could be elderly parents, it could be work colleagues it doesn’t it doesn’t matter.
00:09:13.320 –> 00:09:26.610
Andie Murphy she/her: Who we’re taking care of which is taking care of everything else but ourselves, you know, and I just got goosebumps because this is just so freaking important to me because it’s so real and.
00:09:27.780 –> 00:09:39.690
Andie Murphy she/her: It sort of says to me, you know when we take that time and stop and put ourselves first, which is what I have done now life completely changes.
00:09:41.820 –> 00:09:43.710
Jason Mefford: Well, this is, this is one where.
00:09:46.260 –> 00:09:48.150
Jason Mefford: We get we gotta dig into this because.
00:09:48.150 –> 00:09:51.660
Jason Mefford: there’s so much of what you just said, there is.
00:09:52.770 –> 00:10:05.730
Jason Mefford: What we all experience okay so so I want to kind of unpack a little bit of this and then and then dig in deeper on some of these because you know again your experience as a woman.
00:10:06.330 –> 00:10:07.350
Jason Mefford: single mom.
00:10:07.560 –> 00:10:09.060
Jason Mefford: raising a beautiful boy.
00:10:10.440 –> 00:10:15.570
Jason Mefford: You know this is so typical of of many women right right.
00:10:15.870 –> 00:10:35.400
Jason Mefford: yeah you know you you you bring this new life into the world you spend the next 20 something years you know caring for this this other human and so much of the time women to collect themselves right because they’re just putting everything into the child right.
00:10:35.640 –> 00:10:40.230
Jason Mefford: Right so that’s kind of the female perspective, the male perspective is a little bit different.
00:10:40.980 –> 00:10:42.420
Jason Mefford: But it but it’s similar.
00:10:42.570 –> 00:10:52.890
Jason Mefford: Right is instead of you know as a dad instead of necessarily you know pouring everything into my kids because my wife at the time was doing that.
00:10:53.520 –> 00:11:00.810
Jason Mefford: I was pouring my everything into earning money providing and so.
00:11:02.010 –> 00:11:21.210
Jason Mefford: You know, especially at the earlier parts of our lives we’re we’re all kind of giving giving giving giving giving to everybody else, whether it’s to our career to our family and then you and I wake up in midlife and we’re like what the Fuck just happened.
00:11:25.470 –> 00:11:28.140
Jason Mefford: And so it is it’s one of those where.
00:11:28.890 –> 00:11:35.430
Jason Mefford: what’s what’s what’s funny is is where you said here, at the end that you’ve got to put yourself first so.
00:11:36.120 –> 00:11:40.260
Jason Mefford: I want to come back to that because I want to go into that more because.
00:11:40.980 –> 00:11:42.420
Jason Mefford: So many people.
00:11:44.310 –> 00:11:45.900
Jason Mefford: think that selfish.
00:11:46.410 –> 00:11:48.270
Jason Mefford: Yes, and we’re going to get.
00:11:49.170 –> 00:11:49.560
Jason Mefford: And what.
00:11:51.240 –> 00:12:00.150
Jason Mefford: sona and it’s but, but I wanted to back up a little bit too because of some of the stuff that you talked before about with the depression, anxiety.
00:12:00.300 –> 00:12:13.530
Jason Mefford: addictive behavior as well, because I think again, this is it’s an elephant in the room for a lot of people that we just got to talk about and we got to share so that people realize it’s okay to talk about this.
00:12:13.920 –> 00:12:17.190
Jason Mefford: yeah and maybe why we’re doing what we’re doing right.
00:12:17.640 –> 00:12:27.090
Andie Murphy she/her: it’s so true because when I set in a doctor surgery, I remember this conversation with a doctor five or six years ago and his words were you are.
00:12:27.480 –> 00:12:35.760
Andie Murphy she/her: struggling silently you are our biggest concerns those of you that struggle behind closed doors and don’t come forward.
00:12:36.690 –> 00:12:43.710
Andie Murphy she/her: And that goose bump that really hit a chord with me online oh my God, of course.
00:12:44.430 –> 00:12:57.120
Andie Murphy she/her: They will be so many and that could be it could look like nurses, especially in this day and age Jason with what this world has turned into last two years, nurses, first responders you know or teachers, you know.
00:12:57.630 –> 00:13:17.130
Andie Murphy she/her: they’re all still human they also put most of them productive will be parents trying to navigate all of that, at the same time, and so they hired all this kind of behind closed doors and i’m not saying those people, specifically that they’re doing that, but it’s just it it showed me.
00:13:18.990 –> 00:13:33.960
Andie Murphy she/her: how important this work is and how important it is for me to be you know, to reduce re release my shame and guilt around whatever I have around those tags.
00:13:34.740 –> 00:13:42.510
Andie Murphy she/her: And then just go fact that I need to speak up right now, because, if anything, the last two years have told us.
00:13:42.930 –> 00:13:56.010
Andie Murphy she/her: We have to look after ourselves whether we believe in it agree with it whatever it doesn’t matter as in what’s happened, the last two years, we still have to look after ourselves, because if we don’t somebody else is going to control it.
00:13:57.270 –> 00:13:57.660
Jason Mefford: well.
00:13:59.190 –> 00:14:04.440
Jason Mefford: yeah and that’s that’s why I want to go here because, like you said you know releasing the shame and guilt.
00:14:04.770 –> 00:14:08.790
Jason Mefford: yeah you know again we’re a small population but both of us.
00:14:10.350 –> 00:14:20.010
Jason Mefford: have gone through what you’ve been talking about and i’m guessing that 80 to 90% of the people that are listening to this are going through the same thing.
00:14:20.520 –> 00:14:26.160
Jason Mefford: Right right so for you, it showed up, I mean I love that that term you know the functioning addict.
00:14:26.430 –> 00:14:32.220
Jason Mefford: yeah but you know people you know the reason why you were doing that I heard you use the word numbing.
00:14:32.970 –> 00:14:34.800
Jason Mefford: That you were trying to numb.
00:14:35.220 –> 00:14:36.930
Andie Murphy she/her: yourself correct.
00:14:38.280 –> 00:14:51.270
Andie Murphy she/her: failings not not like avoid myself and not look at what I needed to get for myself to be thriving I was surviving I was actually white knuckling surviving.
00:14:52.050 –> 00:15:04.260
Andie Murphy she/her: Like I wasn’t even really surviving you know, and none of us need to do that we all are worthy and earn this thriving of life.
00:15:04.740 –> 00:15:22.620
Andie Murphy she/her: And I think that’s really important when you really get that it’s like oh yeah Okay, I actually do, and that that is not selfish, in fact, is not self it is selfish if we don’t do it because we are still.
00:15:24.090 –> 00:15:38.190
Andie Murphy she/her: mentors parents, teachers, whatever we are of the younger the younger people that if we don’t teach them how can we say to them take care of yourself if we’re not taking care of ourselves.
00:15:39.270 –> 00:15:58.470
Andie Murphy she/her: You know and small age children, maybe counts as well and they’re also at the most vulnerable part of a life, so the work that I do with women is going to pave a better journey or a better future for their children when they get their shit together like i’ve done.
00:15:59.700 –> 00:16:01.110
Andie Murphy she/her: After college together.
00:16:01.680 –> 00:16:15.900
Jason Mefford: Well, I think this idea of struggling behind closed doors right because I I did this myself you’ve done this yourself as well, and I think you know you use the word shame and guilt.
00:16:16.350 –> 00:16:26.040
Jason Mefford: Yes, well right, so you know, I was the same way, I was on depression or you know medicine, I had high blood pressure, I was.
00:16:26.520 –> 00:16:43.980
Jason Mefford: putting up a brave face at work and with everybody around me, but I have my shit together right in the dark, and so you know how many people actually deal with that where again they’re putting on this brave face but inside they’re dying.
00:16:44.640 –> 00:16:47.730
Jason Mefford: And so they so they go home and.
00:16:48.120 –> 00:16:53.130
Jason Mefford: They want to numb and there’s different ways that different people numb right.
00:16:53.610 –> 00:16:54.870
Jason Mefford: It could be you know.
00:16:55.350 –> 00:17:00.690
Jason Mefford: Drug alcohol violence, sexual addiction.
00:17:01.050 –> 00:17:03.600
Jason Mefford: Anger gambling.
00:17:04.050 –> 00:17:17.730
Jason Mefford: You know there’s all of these different different things that you can do right where again it’s like you know i’m sure everybody listening at some point, you know if you drink alcohol, you probably said at some point man, I need a drink.
00:17:18.000 –> 00:17:21.180
Jason Mefford: yeah man, I need a drink.
00:17:21.600 –> 00:17:26.490
Jason Mefford: yeah and especially with that substance right i’ve always.
00:17:27.630 –> 00:17:40.650
Jason Mefford: been good about being able to control mice myself just for just from my standpoint, but it was because I tell myself, I want to drink, but why do I want the drink.
00:17:41.040 –> 00:17:41.970
Andie Murphy she/her: Correct yeah.
00:17:42.150 –> 00:17:48.930
Jason Mefford: If I want to drink because i’m trying to avoid something, then I won’t let myself drink.
00:17:49.560 –> 00:17:53.340
Jason Mefford: yeah right I won’t let myself escape because of that.
00:17:54.480 –> 00:18:00.000
Jason Mefford: Where a lot of people do right and again that’s where a lot of times alcohol abuse comes into it.
00:18:01.980 –> 00:18:09.540
Jason Mefford: it’s I think that would that was kind of your experience or sounded like right away, and then you wake up the next day and you’re like Why am I so hung over Why did I do that to myself.
00:18:09.750 –> 00:18:22.470
Andie Murphy she/her: Right it’s like oh my God i’m so stressed, give me a drink oh my God i’m so stressed, give me a cigarette like they add to anxiety they don’t support it in any way, shape or form it doesn’t matter who you are.
00:18:23.280 –> 00:18:29.820
Andie Murphy she/her: Alcohol or even even write down a cigarette the way to fix the body, it does not.
00:18:30.840 –> 00:18:41.100
Andie Murphy she/her: suppress our anxiety, it puts extra stress on our body, so therefore the anxieties shifts from a emotional mental feeling to a physical.
00:18:42.300 –> 00:18:47.670
Andie Murphy she/her: So we’re just shifting the goalpost for less aziza have football.
00:18:50.820 –> 00:18:57.240
Andie Murphy she/her: I do, I do love some aussie rules, I do like American football, but I do love some other years to.
00:18:57.300 –> 00:19:00.750
Andie Murphy she/her: My son is a very, very good player So there you go.
00:19:04.410 –> 00:19:15.120
Jason Mefford: Oh, I was gonna say you know, but you know again just to because i’m sure again i’ve been there you’ve been there, people that are listening to this are probably on there too, but.
00:19:17.250 –> 00:19:19.770
Jason Mefford: there’s kind of an embarrassment that goes along with it.
00:19:20.940 –> 00:19:23.880
Jason Mefford: Which which I think is one of the reasons why we.
00:19:24.390 –> 00:19:33.720
Jason Mefford: We try to do it behind closed doors So how do, how do we get past that right, I mean maybe part of its just talking about it, like we’re talking about it but.
00:19:34.200 –> 00:19:47.490
Jason Mefford: How do you help people realize it’s Okay, and you don’t have to do it behind closed doors, everybody else is doing it too right and how do we, how do we change it, so you come out come out of the closet I know that goes along with something else but.
00:19:47.520 –> 00:19:49.650
Andie Murphy she/her: that’s I agree with you there yeah.
00:19:49.680 –> 00:19:49.980
Jason Mefford: yeah.
00:19:50.250 –> 00:19:57.840
Andie Murphy she/her: it’s like I remember when I really needed to do this was when someone would say how are you and I went please don’t ask me that just let me know how you are instead.
00:19:58.320 –> 00:20:11.490
Andie Murphy she/her: Because I was a sort of person that I don’t want to lie with a not a good liar so I don’t like lying and I won’t lie and i’m very authentic so I was like i’d have to answer that really honestly and you don’t have the time for that.
00:20:13.560 –> 00:20:14.820
Jason Mefford: unload on you.
00:20:15.450 –> 00:20:16.020
Andie Murphy she/her: you’re ready.
00:20:17.160 –> 00:20:19.620
Andie Murphy she/her: And also insane that.
00:20:20.940 –> 00:20:35.850
Andie Murphy she/her: I will also add just quickly first that psychology and psychiatry and psychotherapy and all those sorts of things, I was in that those certain you know those those rooms for many, many, many, many years but they kept me in my story.
00:20:36.990 –> 00:20:48.390
Andie Murphy she/her: I kept repeating repeating repeating what was happening for me and it wasn’t supporting me to shift it so then with coaching it’s completely different because.
00:20:48.960 –> 00:20:52.980
Andie Murphy she/her: i’m not a trained psychologist psychologist psychotherapist I don’t even pretend to be that.
00:20:53.400 –> 00:21:06.480
Andie Murphy she/her: But I am a coach and I am a woman that has experienced all this, so the way that we work through getting ourselves out there is wanting to look at it, first we have to like I had to make the decision.
00:21:07.170 –> 00:21:22.170
Andie Murphy she/her: I need to look at this and then, once if I did, that who and where do I get support that’s that suits me and provides me with exactly what I need so I can continue to work in my life, while I heal.
00:21:23.310 –> 00:21:33.000
Andie Murphy she/her: Because you know that’s the functioning part of it i’ve got to keep functioning people, but I gotta heal at the same time and then i’m really the heel who’s going to help me do that.
00:21:33.990 –> 00:21:44.970
Andie Murphy she/her: You know just add another job to go down list yet it’s kind of like it’s like we become overwhelmed with it, so what I the work that I do with women is.
00:21:45.810 –> 00:21:59.220
Andie Murphy she/her: I we step through a program together and the program is something that I have been taught myself so i’m not teaching anyone’s like that or I haven’t experienced or I don’t know anything about so it’s kind of like you know.
00:22:00.270 –> 00:22:11.190
Andie Murphy she/her: What stories are we telling ourselves that create this anxiety or that creative and wellness score and well being or non well being because well being.
00:22:11.700 –> 00:22:22.560
Andie Murphy she/her: is both mental and emotional it’s not just mental and it’s not just emotional if you have good mental well being you have good emotional well being.
00:22:23.100 –> 00:22:34.380
Andie Murphy she/her: If you have good emotional well being you have good mental well being it’s not either or it’s together it’s the same, and so, when we look at.
00:22:35.220 –> 00:22:48.450
Andie Murphy she/her: Our environments, that are not healthy to us like is it a work environment, do we really want to be in that job or is it a relationship environment, do we really want to be in that relationship or you know.
00:22:49.020 –> 00:22:56.940
Andie Murphy she/her: The home environment how am I living, am I living this because someone told me this is all I can be, all I can do, or I can live in.
00:22:57.510 –> 00:23:03.570
Andie Murphy she/her: Or am I doing it because I want to do it, you know, am I, the one that’s judging myself too hard, my answer was.
00:23:04.200 –> 00:23:16.920
Andie Murphy she/her: Absolutely, if I can, yes, I was the biggest and hardest judge on me, no one can judge me any more or any harder than I heard orange on myself, you know i’m sure there’s so many people out there that know that when I say that.
00:23:18.090 –> 00:23:24.060
Andie Murphy she/her: And so, then it mean what language, am I saying to myself, and you know.
00:23:26.220 –> 00:23:35.940
Andie Murphy she/her: Is it nurturing or am I, putting myself down or letting other people around me put me down, like everything was was kind of like it’s like soul crushing.
00:23:38.070 –> 00:23:39.090
Andie Murphy she/her: And, therefore.
00:23:40.170 –> 00:23:49.260
Andie Murphy she/her: When we shift out of that space and we say stop it, or no more or whatever it words, we want to choose and you go.
00:23:49.830 –> 00:23:54.120
Andie Murphy she/her: And we start to look at what is important to me, what is important to you.
00:23:54.630 –> 00:24:11.910
Andie Murphy she/her: And then we can dive into what are your values like like is his health your top value great how’s your health she house wife, she has an overweight and I need properly i’m stressed blah blah okay so then for health isn’t your top value, yes it is blue copy.
00:24:12.510 –> 00:24:13.590
Jason Mefford: Or you wouldn’t be.
00:24:13.650 –> 00:24:14.100
All of it.
00:24:15.420 –> 00:24:30.900
Andie Murphy she/her: yeah yeah and you know is freedom a top value yeah, so why you time yourself in knots and not giving yourself any space you’re running around looking after everybody, have you got supposed to be, you know where’s your fruit and city.
00:24:32.730 –> 00:24:47.010
Andie Murphy she/her: So it kind of to me it’s about working through those things it’s around you know, putting in boundaries Okay, as an example, I drink, seven days a week, my first boundary is i’ll reduce that.
00:24:47.670 –> 00:25:00.480
Andie Murphy she/her: Because just go from one to 100 because we know it’s not going to work, we have to step through this process, and there is no right or wrong way about it it’s a case of.
00:25:01.590 –> 00:25:09.720
Andie Murphy she/her: listening to what we will I you know i’ll talked about what I want, what does my body what is my mind what is my emotional.
00:25:10.470 –> 00:25:21.900
Andie Murphy she/her: needs well my emotional needs like what is my heart saying, am I living my dharma my last purpose is dharma so am I living my dharma no.
00:25:22.560 –> 00:25:40.200
Andie Murphy she/her: i’m working for somebody else and who has major restrictions on how I work because of the type of work, it is well I can do better than that and do bigger than that so that’s you know for me how I stepped into this coaching life of mine as well, so.
00:25:41.970 –> 00:25:47.790
Andie Murphy she/her: it’s Okay, for us to say we need to jump ship here, because this is where we need to go.
00:25:48.810 –> 00:25:55.230
Andie Murphy she/her: You know just because someone said, you must have a job and you must work, really, really hard like really.
00:25:56.250 –> 00:25:57.030
Andie Murphy she/her: Follow matt.
00:25:57.900 –> 00:25:59.970
Jason Mefford: Those are all stories that we’ve been told right.
00:26:00.270 –> 00:26:09.900
Andie Murphy she/her: Correct correct and they start from they are tribal so I have come up through generations and they you know, specifically i’m a.
00:26:10.470 –> 00:26:17.700
Andie Murphy she/her: I think i’m a baby Boomer child my folks are called the baby boomers that generation was really, really hard working.
00:26:18.540 –> 00:26:30.090
Andie Murphy she/her: Not saying generations before that worked, but it was different and there was so many you know, access to so much more in their life and then look at us now and technology on the god don’t get me started, but you know.
00:26:31.140 –> 00:26:43.890
Andie Murphy she/her: It was drilled into them from their fans from their parents that you had to work, really, really hard you had to succeed, you have to go to school, you have to go to college, you have to do, blah blah blah it’s like I can say.
00:26:45.270 –> 00:27:01.770
Andie Murphy she/her: Because you don’t have to do all of that you don’t have to do anything you do not want to do, and I mean that from Detroit auntie and be a bit rebellious like it was because that’s a little I was an exceptionally rebellious 16 year old there’s.
00:27:01.770 –> 00:27:16.140
Andie Murphy she/her: No doubt about that i’m talking about I don’t have to do what you’re saying, because that’s not who I am I am the person that wants to support in this way or wants to live in this particular way.
00:27:17.340 –> 00:27:24.510
Andie Murphy she/her: I want to take care of my children, but I want my freedom as well, I want to work, but I want to have my own business.
00:27:25.410 –> 00:27:36.000
Andie Murphy she/her: You know I want a beautiful home, but I can be anywhere I want it doesn’t have to be on a cliff top you know, in the middle of Sydney or Melbourne away.
00:27:36.750 –> 00:27:54.360
Andie Murphy she/her: It can be in the country, it can be whatever it needs to be it could be a shack on a beautiful book land surrounded by trees it’s choice and our choice is so important, like choices, one of my highest values obviously freedom is.
00:27:55.500 –> 00:27:58.890
Andie Murphy she/her: Well, being is my top value, but you know.
00:28:00.120 –> 00:28:13.890
Andie Murphy she/her: learning how to put ourselves first and filling our own Cup is the only way we’re going to survive, and we are entitled to it because well being is vital to our life force.
00:28:15.030 –> 00:28:22.680
Jason Mefford: Well, I think it’s interesting because if we if we touch on a little bit of what you were talking about there because, especially since you’re you’re dealing with women.
00:28:23.340 –> 00:28:24.060
Jason Mefford: You know, and again.
00:28:24.120 –> 00:28:27.180
Jason Mefford: Men that are listening, this relates to us to okay.
00:28:28.950 –> 00:28:36.630
Jason Mefford: more intelligent relates to make right, I mean and i’ve gone through and experience a lot of the same stuff it’s just in different ways.
00:28:36.750 –> 00:28:46.620
Jason Mefford: Right, but where where for women and, again, as you were talking, I was just sitting there thinking How ironic, is this.
00:28:46.950 –> 00:28:50.760
Jason Mefford: Right so so you know we’ll just take you as an example.
00:28:50.970 –> 00:28:53.820
Jason Mefford: right because again what you’re what you’re talking about i’m guessing.
00:28:54.480 –> 00:29:08.250
Jason Mefford: it’s what you’ve gone through and it’s it’s what you’ve worked through and that’s why you’re helping people right So if I if i’m putting the wrong words in your mouth here then slap me and we’ll go but, but what.
00:29:09.540 –> 00:29:10.560
Jason Mefford: I know you will, I know you.
00:29:14.580 –> 00:29:16.560
Jason Mefford: REACH, right to the Internet and slap me.
00:29:19.200 –> 00:29:30.660
Jason Mefford: what’s interesting you know, because as as a mother right is in, and you even use the word beautiful boy you love your son right.
00:29:31.530 –> 00:29:35.550
Jason Mefford: And you have done everything you can.
00:29:35.730 –> 00:29:48.750
Jason Mefford: Right i’m sure to you know raise him up to help him feel good about himself to talk to him in a way, so that he can be successful.
00:29:49.650 –> 00:30:01.710
Jason Mefford: And and what’s what’s funny is, you know as we were talking about some of this addictive personality, or the some of the things that a lot of times we’re in the in the shadows behind the doors.
00:30:03.060 –> 00:30:07.740
Jason Mefford: They you know i’m sure you were this way and i’m sure, a lot of other people this way you were.
00:30:09.270 –> 00:30:10.620
Jason Mefford: You were probably the supermom.
00:30:11.490 –> 00:30:12.810
Jason Mefford: To everybody in the neighborhood.
00:30:12.900 –> 00:30:13.260
Jason Mefford: Right.
00:30:13.350 –> 00:30:15.540
Andie Murphy she/her: I was, and then you get home.
00:30:16.560 –> 00:30:17.790
Jason Mefford: You still got the Cape affair.
00:30:19.020 –> 00:30:20.340
Jason Mefford: supermom.
00:30:21.210 –> 00:30:32.880
Jason Mefford: Right so so you go out, you know all all the other ladies in the neighborhood they saw you know you’re a supermom your son is awesome you come home you put him to bed in your life.
00:30:34.740 –> 00:30:42.060
Andie Murphy she/her: Right point and you’re like give me the bottle give me the whatever I just I can’t take this anymore i’ve got an amount.
00:30:42.630 –> 00:30:50.610
Jason Mefford: yeah you know and and you finish your day that way you get up in the morning, a little hung over, but you put on your Superman Cape again.
00:30:51.150 –> 00:31:00.900
Jason Mefford: And you go out and you do it, and the next day you come back and you’re a little bit more tired than you were before and so maybe you drink a little bit more than you did the night before whatever right.
00:31:01.380 –> 00:31:05.850
Jason Mefford: yeah but it starts it starts in this pattern and then like you said you know that we.
00:31:06.450 –> 00:31:13.800
Jason Mefford: When we’re doing that and behind the closed doors that’s when the guilt and shame usually comes in.
00:31:14.520 –> 00:31:24.720
Jason Mefford: high, and so I can only imagine the kinds of things that you were saying to yourself that you never would have said to your son.
00:31:25.140 –> 00:31:28.080
Jason Mefford: I like to me, this is what is so ironic is.
00:31:28.560 –> 00:31:42.840
Jason Mefford: All the the super moms that are saying, everything that needs to be said to their child and yet they’re shooting themselves in the foot they’re killing themselves they’re sucking their own energy out.
00:31:43.500 –> 00:31:54.480
Jason Mefford: By how hard they are on themselves and the guilty and the shaming, and the shadow what it could is all the stuff that’s going on, that is depleting you.
00:31:55.050 –> 00:32:06.480
Jason Mefford: Right, so not only are you are you giving everything to your your son or your family or whatever it is that people are giving to but you’re taking the rest of you away.
00:32:07.080 –> 00:32:10.680
Jason Mefford: yeah by you know talking shitty to yourself.
00:32:11.010 –> 00:32:13.560
Jason Mefford: At the end of the day is such a place.
00:32:14.100 –> 00:32:24.540
Andie Murphy she/her: exhaustion is so underrated so so underrated like you know as you were saying all that that was exhausting for me hearing it because i’m like.
00:32:24.900 –> 00:32:25.260
Jason Mefford: Oh, my.
00:32:25.350 –> 00:32:25.680
Jason Mefford: God.
00:32:26.340 –> 00:32:37.650
Andie Murphy she/her: That is so true and I also thought of you know it doesn’t have to even be a substance, there are some moms and women out there that don’t drink at all, but they work themselves to exhaustion.
00:32:39.060 –> 00:32:40.860
Andie Murphy she/her: And then they get up and do it again.
00:32:42.120 –> 00:32:54.810
Andie Murphy she/her: So it’s still the cycle of not being well because there is some form of guilt or shame or judgment sitting within them thinking i’ve got to work this hard.
00:32:55.890 –> 00:33:07.980
Andie Murphy she/her: To achieve what I need to achieve for my family, you know for my work colleagues, whatever it is, and so exhaustion the more exhausted I got the more exhausted I got.
00:33:09.570 –> 00:33:20.550
Andie Murphy she/her: yeah to end right down to overnight and up having sleep deprivation and I had that for like five years, and you can’t make that shit up in like time.
00:33:21.090 –> 00:33:30.840
Andie Murphy she/her: You can’t do it, it is gone gone gone gone, even if I went to sleep for the next six months it’s still gone, it will never replace all of that that time.
00:33:31.260 –> 00:33:42.630
Andie Murphy she/her: What we do now and go is we stop beating ourselves up, we would, it would be chuck classes child abuse about some of the stuff we do to ourselves as adults.
00:33:43.650 –> 00:33:53.880
Andie Murphy she/her: mentally physically and emotionally literally would be classed as challenges in one sense, because we would not treat our children, the way we treat ourselves.
00:33:54.450 –> 00:34:14.550
Andie Murphy she/her: You wouldn’t even think about it would even dream about doing it, and yet there’s an inner child within every single one of us that screaming for us to say hello i’m here hug me love me nurture me put me first please kind of stuff so.
00:34:15.600 –> 00:34:16.470
Andie Murphy she/her: You know, to me.
00:34:17.520 –> 00:34:23.070
Jason Mefford: and go in there okay so just again to kind of summarize or analogies this for people so.
00:34:23.640 –> 00:34:37.710
Jason Mefford: What you’re really saying right is a lot of people are being super mom super dad to their physical kids but they’re actually abusing their own inner child.
00:34:38.550 –> 00:34:48.870
Jason Mefford: To the point that if you were to do the same things to a physical child social services would probably come and grab you and take your child away from you.
00:34:49.380 –> 00:34:57.120
Andie Murphy she/her: Correct absolutely, without a doubt, and yet, and I know that’s a really harsh thing to say, because I do know, an honor and respect, there are a lot of.
00:34:57.750 –> 00:35:06.420
Andie Murphy she/her: There is a lot of abuse in this world that is physically occurring for people so we’re not we can make it clear we’re not talking about that right now we’re talking about.
00:35:06.960 –> 00:35:22.710
Andie Murphy she/her: Those of us that are doing this to ourselves and not and we can be so much more and so much better than what we are doing so much better so much more or who we are, from our core from our heart when we stop doing that to ourselves.
00:35:23.880 –> 00:35:35.400
Andie Murphy she/her: yeah it’s so there’s you know we are mindful of of the trauma and that can other people experience, this is not what this is about this is not what we’re talking about here, this is different.
00:35:36.420 –> 00:35:42.540
Jason Mefford: Well it’s kind of the you know again because everybody’s you know if you’re listening, you might be thinking well I don’t do that right well.
00:35:43.230 –> 00:35:52.200
Jason Mefford: Have you ever told yourself a hole that was stupid Jason yeah I say that way more than I still should right, I mean i’m aware of it and i’m stopping it.
00:35:52.800 –> 00:36:03.810
Jason Mefford: But we all end up saying things to ourselves that we wouldn’t normally say to other people so so, how does this, you know, putting yourself first and kind of.
00:36:04.410 –> 00:36:16.410
Jason Mefford: You know, getting back to living from your purpose sort of thing, so how does this look, I mean I know you kind of said look there’s gotta be some awareness about it right first off like we got to kind of wake up so again.
00:36:17.670 –> 00:36:20.970
Jason Mefford: You know some of you listening, this may be your wake up call right.
00:36:21.000 –> 00:36:26.520
Jason Mefford: yeah The second thing you kind of talked about was finding support this suit you.
00:36:27.000 –> 00:36:34.770
Jason Mefford: sell as well too so maybe let’s talk a little bit about that, because I think I think that’s interesting you know there’s there’s a lot of different.
00:36:35.850 –> 00:36:39.120
Jason Mefford: modalities there’s a lot of different people.
00:36:39.330 –> 00:36:42.600
Jason Mefford: That are doing certain things there’s going, and it seems like that.
00:36:42.990 –> 00:36:54.810
Jason Mefford: Certain things would resonate with certain people right, I mean so So how do you how do you kind of go about or or do that and I guess to realize that not everybody has to do the same thing.
00:36:55.380 –> 00:36:57.900
Jason Mefford: Because same thing won’t work for everybody i’m guessing.
00:36:57.960 –> 00:37:09.240
Andie Murphy she/her: Absolutely, I think I can tell you a little secret well, maybe it’s not really a secret, this is heavy on podcast but I remember going to one of my Skype call ology sessions stoned.
00:37:11.130 –> 00:37:15.510
Jason Mefford: yeah that was probably a fun session for him, that it was a him.
00:37:15.780 –> 00:37:24.510
Andie Murphy she/her: And I went to this session stone because I wanted to test his ability to understand me and no.
00:37:25.710 –> 00:37:32.790
Andie Murphy she/her: He did not know, I was stoned and I can confirm this, because the following week was always seeing him we click this stage.
00:37:33.480 –> 00:37:42.900
Andie Murphy she/her: I said so, how did you think like I actually asked him about a lot, the last session we had this is a blah blah blah you’re a bit kind of all over the shop I said I was stoned.
00:37:44.310 –> 00:37:46.170
Andie Murphy she/her: And he said oh.
00:37:48.240 –> 00:37:51.000
Andie Murphy she/her: He said no, you went I go, yes, I was.
00:37:52.290 –> 00:37:54.330
Jason Mefford: No, I made sure I was done before.
00:37:55.080 –> 00:38:01.020
Andie Murphy she/her: I do that for you on purpose, because that was the rebellious feel that I was back then, you know and i’m talking like that was.
00:38:03.060 –> 00:38:11.100
Andie Murphy she/her: Over 20 years ago but anyway, the point I was making back then was, and I think that was our last session to after I confirm with him, but he didn’t know.
00:38:12.300 –> 00:38:12.840
Andie Murphy she/her: He got it.
00:38:13.140 –> 00:38:14.610
Andie Murphy she/her: yeah I don’t think i’m the right person to you.
00:38:15.900 –> 00:38:32.820
Andie Murphy she/her: But anyway, so it is a trial and error, we do have to go there is a space where you know you go through all these different times, where you’re trying out different things I guess what i’m saying to people who are have not tried coaching then to think about this and then.
00:38:34.950 –> 00:38:46.740
Andie Murphy she/her: If you’re like okay as an exam for me, you would you would go and look at my way instagram page on my website on my Facebook page etc you’ve listened to this this podcast that i’ve got with you Jason and you go Okay, I am.
00:38:47.220 –> 00:38:53.340
Andie Murphy she/her: connecting with your energy or i’m connecting with what you’re saying I will do at least a you know.
00:38:53.730 –> 00:39:10.800
Andie Murphy she/her: Private message or a call out to me in some way and that’s how we would begin to to sort of see where the where the right fit because I also only want people that are coachable you need to be in a space where you are ready to make change and then prepared to make those changes.
00:39:12.570 –> 00:39:16.440
Andie Murphy she/her: You know I do that through a 12 week Program.
00:39:17.640 –> 00:39:26.790
Andie Murphy she/her: And we look and dive really deep i’m a really deep it’s interesting you said, I think you said to me earlier in the podcast let’s dive deep and like I just did a post about that.
00:39:27.990 –> 00:39:28.890
Andie Murphy she/her: A couple days ago.
00:39:29.160 –> 00:39:47.220
Andie Murphy she/her: Because I am I am a deep person I work at a deep level and I like working from that level, not a lot of people do and that’s Okay, because it’s really uncomfortable and you got to get really fucking run vulnerable, and you know tears and excuse me but snot bubbles.
00:39:47.340 –> 00:39:48.240
Andie Murphy she/her: They come with it.
00:39:50.040 –> 00:40:10.260
Andie Murphy she/her: Is that is the look because that’s how we clear it all out and make space for what we’re about to do and so it’s learning to put in a new relationship with ourselves it’s learning to honor ourselves and it’s learning to decide.
00:40:11.580 –> 00:40:23.520
Andie Murphy she/her: To decide and choose what’s possible for me So what is it that I really, really want some people might not know their dharma at the beginning of the program, but I can guarantee you at the end of the program they do.
00:40:25.440 –> 00:40:34.890
Andie Murphy she/her: yeah and it’s sort of like we will go through it together we take them through step by step, we start with building the Foundation, so we start to look at what what has got us to where we are.
00:40:35.820 –> 00:40:40.170
Andie Murphy she/her: We look at the stories and we don’t we’re not telling those stories anymore we’re just going to reprogram them.
00:40:40.710 –> 00:40:49.230
Andie Murphy she/her: we’re going to change that story right now I don’t want to know any more story because it’s going to keep you there, and if you want to keep telling a story i’m not the right person.
00:40:50.130 –> 00:40:56.370
Andie Murphy she/her: So you know if you want to do that, then that’s you know that’s what that become to me, so the thing and.
00:40:56.880 –> 00:41:09.330
Andie Murphy she/her: We would then once we’ve worked out the foundations and we’ve worked at this what we who you want to be, and the values that you have and what boundaries, because you know a lot of us put boundaries in place, but then we let them move.
00:41:10.530 –> 00:41:14.430
Andie Murphy she/her: You know, and then all of a sudden those boundaries have gone we’re gonna bring them back.
00:41:14.880 –> 00:41:19.230
Andie Murphy she/her: We don’t get to catch them, let them go again we’re going to bring them back so if we’re sick of that yo yo.
00:41:19.650 –> 00:41:36.270
Andie Murphy she/her: performance that we do, then this is the sort of work that you’re going to want to do, and you know I call it, we build those foundations, and then we up level the shit out of those foundations, and what that means is that we grow into that new what is possible phase.
00:41:37.560 –> 00:41:42.660
Andie Murphy she/her: And then we get to live from that new possibility in the in the third phase.
00:41:45.270 –> 00:41:49.290
Jason Mefford: So let’s see I mean it’s it’s a you know, this is one of those things where, as I.
00:41:50.400 –> 00:42:01.830
Jason Mefford: You know i’ve done a lot of training over times i’ve written books i’ve done a lot of you know I got podcasts and other stuff and then and there’s there’s so many people that think you can just take a pill.
00:42:02.400 –> 00:42:04.800
Jason Mefford: yeah and everything is fixed.
00:42:05.400 –> 00:42:11.940
Jason Mefford: You know which which actually I mean that wasn’t meaning it to be that way, but that really ties back into our addiction.
00:42:12.510 –> 00:42:13.590
Jason Mefford: yeah issues.
00:42:13.770 –> 00:42:20.760
Jason Mefford: That we were talking about before right is that so much of the time, we want to feel well.
00:42:21.390 –> 00:42:21.750
00:42:22.860 –> 00:42:33.690
Jason Mefford: But it takes work to feel well right for most people would be nope just give me a drink just give me a pill just give me a whatever right.
00:42:34.290 –> 00:42:49.560
Jason Mefford: And then i’m going to feel good, well, you will temporarily right but, just like what you’re talking about I mean what you typically run people through from a coaching program is 12 weeks right that’s three months now, you and I both know there’s a reason for that.
00:42:49.920 –> 00:42:53.580
Jason Mefford: Because most transformation doesn’t come.
00:42:54.690 –> 00:43:15.690
Jason Mefford: Until you get to the 60 to 90 day frame and that’s again because of the way that we’re programmed it’s it takes us that long to get rid of some habits and develop new habits and that’s really when you start to see the change, most people give up long before they ever get to that point.
00:43:15.780 –> 00:43:18.330
Andie Murphy she/her: So day 14 or 21.
00:43:18.420 –> 00:43:22.110
Jason Mefford: is usually that’s usually where it is because I don’t know how many times i’ve.
00:43:23.250 –> 00:43:24.390
Jason Mefford: worked with people.
00:43:24.960 –> 00:43:33.990
Jason Mefford: And i’ve given them a tool right and they go away and they’re like man, the first two weeks and I was doing really great and then all of a sudden, I just stopped doing it.
00:43:34.560 –> 00:43:36.810
Jason Mefford: yeah I told you that was gonna happen didn’t I.
00:43:37.290 –> 00:43:39.810
Jason Mefford: yeah well yeah but I didn’t believe yeah well.
00:43:41.100 –> 00:43:48.000
Andie Murphy she/her: And that’s the thing in the program that I do I don’t tell you what’s going to happen that they don’t do it, I tell you what’s going to happen if you do do it.
00:43:48.240 –> 00:43:50.340
Andie Murphy she/her: yeah so we keep focusing forward.
00:43:51.600 –> 00:44:05.310
Andie Murphy she/her: yeah, and so it is you know this subconscious transformation is huge, we have to go into that level, because most of us don’t realize that we are operating subconsciously.
00:44:06.720 –> 00:44:13.080
Andie Murphy she/her: Because that’s where the beliefs, that you and I knew and I both know that, with all the work we’ve done but so it’s about.
00:44:13.890 –> 00:44:30.240
Andie Murphy she/her: Report literally reprogramming it’s like taking that disc out of there and putting that disc into them instead it’s like your update your windows on your computer for those of us that still have PCs not like you, that has a MAC obviously Jason which we let this morning.
00:44:32.010 –> 00:44:33.960
Jason Mefford: When I was 11 I can’t help you i’m sorry.
00:44:35.430 –> 00:44:36.600
Andie Murphy she/her: People and I couldn’t work it out.
00:44:38.520 –> 00:44:51.720
Andie Murphy she/her: So it’s like we upgrade that we upgrade our car or we upgrade our clothes, or you know it it’s kind of like we need to upgrade our our mind.
00:44:52.620 –> 00:45:05.430
Andie Murphy she/her: You know our hearts are are in one place in our mind is in the other and then there’s the gut and we all know that all three are connected and a lot of us, you know there’s that fight flight there’s that.
00:45:07.950 –> 00:45:17.310
Andie Murphy she/her: intuition is, you know that gut feeling, etc, those are the ones you need to listen to and the heart relates very, very well with that.
00:45:17.730 –> 00:45:28.440
Andie Murphy she/her: The little should he be machine up the top the mind it goes no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no i’m here hello, let me keep feeding you full of shit.
00:45:28.860 –> 00:45:43.050
Andie Murphy she/her: Let me keep beating you down and the other two got it kind of gave up on it a bit for a little while until they all kind of align and then it’s sort of like now we’re going to listen to the heart now, and when you listen to the heart that goes oh my God, this is so good.
00:45:44.430 –> 00:45:50.130
Andie Murphy she/her: Because it’s the expansion that you feel it’s if there’s a conflict of physical connection in the body.
00:45:51.180 –> 00:45:57.660
Andie Murphy she/her: And then the little itty bitty brushing up top go on, but but, but like yeah sorry you’re gone.
00:45:59.550 –> 00:46:10.620
Jason Mefford: Well, and I think it’s you know I think it’s interesting as your as your you know kind of going through this and saying this because you know we started off at the beginning kind of talking, you know about your paths and the.
00:46:11.250 –> 00:46:20.880
Jason Mefford: The transition that you’ve made and how you know what you’ve gone through is similar to what i’ve gone through and what other this that we know, have gone through as well right and that.
00:46:22.170 –> 00:46:24.960
Jason Mefford: So much of the time we’re giving giving giving giving giving.
00:46:26.340 –> 00:46:37.950
Jason Mefford: beating up on ourselves behind the closed doors right but showing up with a brave face to the public, all the time and then, when the doors closed or people go away.
00:46:38.700 –> 00:46:43.860
Jason Mefford: We kind of figuratively beat up ourselves and beat up on ourselves, over and over again right.
00:46:44.610 –> 00:46:54.810
Jason Mefford: And it’s you know this, this process that you’re kind of talking about and going through you know I want to make sure as we’re kind of wrapping up here that people because we talked about a lot of stuff.
00:46:55.080 –> 00:46:56.160
Andie Murphy she/her: yeah we can.
00:46:57.540 –> 00:47:11.640
Jason Mefford: I know, so I know we’ve got to get back to our days, people got to get back to their days, but I wanted to kind of summarize a little bit some of this stuff too, because you know, this is what we’ve been talking about is a cycle.
00:47:12.390 –> 00:47:17.250
Jason Mefford: That, I would say 70 to 80% of the people, probably go through in their daily life.
00:47:17.460 –> 00:47:24.840
Jason Mefford: And so, as you’re listening to this you’re hearing sure like man that sounds like my day that sounds like my week right.
00:47:25.500 –> 00:47:30.240
Jason Mefford: So first off right well, the only way to change first off, you have to become aware of it.
00:47:30.990 –> 00:47:48.930
Jason Mefford: And so, if this is an awareness, for you and you want to do something different than start doing something different right, I mean that’s that’s the whole purpose but but it’s it’s you know again about you know, realizing that there doesn’t have to be any shame or guilt around it.
00:47:49.740 –> 00:47:52.860
Andie Murphy she/her: No, because exist.
00:47:53.010 –> 00:47:54.540
Jason Mefford: No, because you’re not.
00:47:54.840 –> 00:47:57.630
Jason Mefford: you’re not the end you’re not the only ones going through this so.
00:47:58.050 –> 00:48:08.160
Jason Mefford: that’s the whole thing with you know mental illness versus mental well being right that you’re talking about is we’re so afraid to talk about it.
00:48:09.270 –> 00:48:20.610
Jason Mefford: But it’s okay to talk about it and there’s people like Andy that you can talk about it, too, and she knows you’re not crazy you’re just human.
00:48:21.990 –> 00:48:23.850
Andie Murphy she/her: Because if you’re crazy I am too right.
00:48:25.230 –> 00:48:27.480
Jason Mefford: So um I guess right, but you know.
00:48:28.110 –> 00:48:34.410
Andie Murphy she/her: If we don’t look after our mental well being, we will end up with mental health issues and that’s.
00:48:35.040 –> 00:48:48.660
Andie Murphy she/her: Not even now i’m not it is not my jam i’m not even going to pretend, I know how to help you through that because that’s not who I am but 70% people will remain staying and living as they are right now and 30%.
00:48:49.620 –> 00:48:57.900
Andie Murphy she/her: Absolutely willing to have that to make that change and you and I Jason a part of that 30% which i’m just saying there’s a few more of us out there.
00:48:58.410 –> 00:49:14.910
Andie Murphy she/her: come along and join us, because you know this, I support you, through this program the hallway there are tools we stop and start when we need to their support there’s one on one calls there’s all this sort of thing it’s built around what you need.
00:49:16.080 –> 00:49:21.480
Andie Murphy she/her: And that’s how I support you so that’s you know I think that’s a really important thing to add in at the end of this because i’m.
00:49:22.680 –> 00:49:29.790
Andie Murphy she/her: You know, but especially I really liked it when you said that 70% 30% before it made me think of that so yeah.
00:49:30.060 –> 00:49:38.580
Jason Mefford: Well, and you know, again, I mean if if in talking today if Andy resonates with you reach out to her, I mean that’s that’s the whole purpose of this if she doesn’t.
00:49:39.360 –> 00:49:59.070
Jason Mefford: that’s okay too right but but, but the important thing is reach out to someone and start trying to do something different, because if not, two years from now, five years from now you’re going to wake up again, like most of us at midlife do and go what the Fuck just happened.
00:49:59.310 –> 00:49:59.820
Jason Mefford: Right yeah.
00:50:00.300 –> 00:50:10.530
Jason Mefford: So, once you have that awareness just have the courage to actually reach out and ask for help you don’t have to be embarrassed about it because chances are whoever you reach out to.
00:50:11.190 –> 00:50:21.810
Jason Mefford: they’re dealing with the same shit that you are, and when you tell them that you’re struggling they’re going to go oh my gosh, thank you for telling me that because i’m dealing with the same stuff.
00:50:22.380 –> 00:50:25.590
Andie Murphy she/her: Exactly and there’s nothing you can say is going to scare us.
00:50:26.850 –> 00:50:28.920
Andie Murphy she/her: Because we’ve done it or heard it ourselves.
00:50:29.400 –> 00:50:30.330
Jason Mefford: yeah yeah.
00:50:30.420 –> 00:50:33.630
Jason Mefford: yeah so no This is great Andy Thank you.

Jason Mefford: This is something that I, people need to hear.
00:51:16.680 –> 00:51:25.980
Jason Mefford: and realize they’re not alone and it’s Okay, we got to talk about it, you know I mean hell if if if it was a physical issue right if you had cancer.
00:51:26.370 –> 00:51:30.210
Jason Mefford: yeah you’d feel okay talking to people about it, I think right but.
00:51:30.300 –> 00:51:33.030
Jason Mefford: But because it’s mental we’re embarrassed about it but.
00:51:33.030 –> 00:51:34.260
Jason Mefford: We don’t need to be.
00:51:34.710 –> 00:51:37.380
