Pt 2 of my talk with Crystal Dorval!  We discuss change;  
keeping it simple;  
suicidal ideation;
the importance of reaching out, talking and therapy; 
being okay with not being okay;
mindfulness;
being overwhelmed by daunting tasks; 
putting unnecessary pressure on ourselves and how we can learn to strip that away and find calm; 
black and white thinking (all or nothing); 
DBT (dialectic behavior therapy); 
trauma (the body holds it and it will come out one way or another); 
the power of talking (counselling, journaling, support groups, etc); 
journaling; 
Theory U (the fear of change and the state of being uncertain what will happen when you've made a change in your life); 
trusting that things will work out; 
setting attainable and reasonable goals; 
marcel the shell (Jenny Slate); 
ambiguous words we don't REALLY know the meaning of but use all the time (eg. 'success' and 'happiness'); 
receiving compliments (and how hard that can be); 
DIY initiatives; 
reinventing the live music experience (especially for introverts);
and SO MUCH MORE!
