Episode 28: Armor (“Cold As Ice”) Featuring Jaime Wilkins

 

Brene Brown armor

We may think that fear lies at the heart of many relationship problems, but Brene Brown teaches that all successful relationships have fear- fear of change, fear of not being enough, fear of rejection.

What destroys relationships isn’t fear, but the ARMOR we put on to try to protect ourselves from the fear.

In today’s episode we interview life coach Jaime Wilkins who talks about two common forms of armor: perfectionism and numbing our emotions.

The song “Cold As Ice” by Foreigner talks all about numbing, so we give it some therapy.

Rich makes it much better.

Rich’s lyrics:

“I’m as cold as ice.
I try to numb my insides because…
I avoid shame and strife
But now I pay the price
I know

I’ve done this before, we do all the time
Put on our armor, say “things are fine”
We close ourselves off, avoid fear and shame
Gotta be vulnerable
And embrace our pain

I’ll say it twice
We have to sacrifice for joy
To be concise
Vulnerability is the price I know

I’ve done this before, we do all the time
Put on our armor, say “things are fine”
We close ourselves off, avoid fear and shame
Gotta be vulnerable
And embrace our pain”
