#49: On Being You with Mynaa Miesnowan

Summary

They tell you to “be yourself”, “listen to yourself”, “express yourself”…yet, what happens when you do? Do they scorn you? Do they attack you? Do they tell you that you’re acting strange or rude? Indeed, how can one be themselves in a world that wants you to lie–that wants you to be an actor? In this episode, Mynaa Miesnowan and I dive deep into the art of “absolving unto yourself”, where we revisit the central themes of Emerson’s “Self Reliance” in order to recap on our 8-part series on the essay all about “being yourself” in the most radical way possible.

#47: Self Reliance, an Analysis with Mynaa Miesnowan (Part 7)

Summary

It’s time to dive deep into the absurd with a thoroughly precise and absurdly tangential analysis and dissection of Ralph Waldo Emerson’s essay, Self-Reliance. Almost as if the GODS of eternal recurrence have commanded it, Mynaa Miesnowan returns to dive deep into the nature of “trusting thyself”! 

Behind? Each episode stands on its own, so fear not! We discussed the warm and cozy blanket of repression and self-deception/herd-reliance as well as the power in being yourself. Enjoy.
