#60: The story of my brother’s accident, how my experience of loss has changed over time, traumatic brain injury, how we respond to loss, thinking long-term, & the beauty of going slowly

Episode description:

When I was 19, my younger brother was in a car accident that left him with a TBI (traumatic brain injury). I tell the story of my experience of this, what that day was like for me, and what Damon’s recovery was like.

I also talk about the subsequent years of my life, how I experienced more loss, and what I made that mean. How I grieved and healed my anxiety and learned to feel my emotions effectively.

I also talk about tending a fire and thinking of my life in decades and the shift from short-term thinking into long-term.
