In this episode of Freedom Lovin, Kevin shares Chapter three of his The Rebel’s Guide To Freedom book entitled “Choosing Your Life”. This is about obtaining a great deal of freedom and peace in your life, and transcending from the automatic response or automatic reaction, and switching from reactivity to response. He also includes a section of Terry Real’s new book, US. What is your depiction of rebel? Whether it’s loudly expressing this inner rebel or silently responding to circumstances. The complete integrated, planned form of rebellion is usually absent. In order to meet our needs and process our emotions in a healthy way without endangering others, we must learn to control our reactions indicates you’re blaming, shaming, fighting, defending, or whining instead of taking responsibility for your feelings and needs. To find out more about this, tune in to this episode! 

Topics discussed:

  • The classic depiction of rebel 

  • Reactive vs Responsive

  • Without that connection, you lose a pause between what you feel and what you do

  • With training and practice, we can change our response

  • Relational mindfulness 

And more!
