How Cockroaches Became My New Self-Help Gurus

2015-08-28-1440780064-5693195-MichaelCBryanWEBVersion001.jpg

Oh, I’m totally enlightened. But I’m having a panic attack right now, so do you mind if we talk after I don’t feel like running screaming naked down the street? You’re a doll.

The other day at therapy my shrink had the balls to say to me, “You’re reporting today. I don’t want you reporting. I want you to tell me about the cockroaches in your bed last night. Let’s talk about that.”

I really hated him for saying that (not really). But he was right. I report. I talk as if I were on social media. Look at this funny ad, my skin looks so good today, I have a freak of a dog. I do it when I’m not connected to what I’m really feeling.

I know why I can be like that. I had a very, very weird childhood. Like Addams Family weird. My mother was mentally ill. She screwed me up, and I’ve spent my entire life unscrewing myself (you get the idea). I’ve healed. I am, to overuse the word, blessed. Cue the marching band.

That’s why nowadays I’m a super positive guy because the alternative wasn’t working. Sure, I’m watering down years and years of yoga, meditation and psychotherapy, but the happy ending I’ve been searching for I’m now living. Praise Jesus!

But then there’s this bug issue.

It’s not that bugs were literally swarming over me, but that I have anxiety nightmares about them. I’ve had anxiety dreams for years. Most of the dreams are so violent they literally bolt me out of my bed and send me careening into my living room. Honestly, It’s really embarrassing. Another solid reason to remain single.

What really gets my goat is that all I do every day is connect with my friggin’ Higher Self. I take yoga classes and vitamins and breath, breath, breath, and yet after all this, I still have the occasional dream where I’m being suffocated by cockroaches. No wonder my application for Zen Priesthood was declined.

When I finally calm down afterwards, I feel like an idiot. Old feelings of depression come up. I was clinically depressed for years so I know how the old throw me under a bus oh my God I hate my life can I eat those Doritos depression feels.

2015-08-28-1440780806-3438024-P10006301copy.jpg

Me. When I used to eat my feelings. All of them.
And I do mean all of them.

I want to call a friend so they can tell me it’s all going to be alright, but I know calling a friend at 3:33 a.m. isn’t the smartest way to keep a thriving friendship alive. So I watch more episodes of Friends and sometimes take a teddy bear I have in my linen closet to bed with me. Don’t tell anyone.

My shrink told me next week we’re going to have to talk about the bugs. I have no idea what they really represent, but I’m guessing it’s something to do with my inability to practice what I preach, which is believing that everything is going to be alright.

I’ve studied with enough gurus (some named Skye, which is really hard for me not to make fun of) so I know that feeling anxious and depressed is the most effective way to block off what the Universe is trying to tell me. It’s like putting a muzzle over a megaphone that’s attached to my ear.

The past few years I’ve witness this wild phenomena where I ask the Universe for something, and it shows up. Literally. For years I used to think that kind of thinking was for people who dropped acid and twirled around Central Park with glow sticks in their hands. But then I realized it’s how the world works so I shut my pie hole.

So if that’s the case, what the hell’s the deal with the bugs?

I may not be able to see the truth of it right now, but I do know that my panic dreams aren’t the real me, but the old me, the younger Michael who used to have extreme anxiety disorder and suffered from depression and looked like something out of The Walking Dead. The Michael who never felt consistently loved as a boy, so he never learned to trust that things always work out.

I used to say, How could I learn to trust if my first source of trust broke my heart? I’m sick of saying that. The script is getting old. Time for a rewrite.

I’ve come a million miles from where I used to be. I’ll work past this bug thing. The key is to stop throwing things like anxiety and depression and bugs in my path.

All this insight from a bunch of cockroaches. Who knew?

How A Former Shy Girl Became A Confident Career Coach

Dear readers,

Welcome! I’m a self-employed career and business coach who helps introverts clarify and thrive in their true livelihood so they can have the meaning and balance they crave. I love my work, and I can’t wait to start getting your questions for this career and business advice column for introverts.

Let’s start off this relationship with me confiding in you.

My shy girl past

I was painfully shy all through my school years. I loved to escape by reading and climbing trees. Up in a tree, I could relax and watch people, but they couldn’t see me.

When I was little, people could barely hear me speak—if I could get any words out at all. The more people demanded I speak up, the worse I felt about myself, and the more I wanted to hide and stay silent.

I grew up in a loud and extroverted family, and I didn’t understand why I felt so out of sync. I craved quiet. I almost craved invisibility as well. One time, I crawled into a refrigerator box on the patio and happily read there for hours. I was delighted that no one could find me!

And yet, I also hated invisibility. I wanted to be noticed, to be heard! I had questions to ask. I had plenty of ideas and opinions. I just had trouble saying them out loud.

I was also highly sensitive—easily rattled by noise, light, speed, heights, and, well, people. (It wasn’t until I was an adult that I discovered what “high sensitivity” was and how to work with it instead of against it.) Turns out, it often correlates with introversion.

As a result of my sensitivity and external stressors, I suffered from a lot of anxiety. I didn’t know this then; to me, swirling thoughts, stomachaches, and fear of speaking (at all) was my normal state of being.

Throughout school, I was obsessed with getting good grades, probably as a way to not rock the boat and remain invisible. But when my 11th grade English teacher assigned an oral report, I panicked! I approached the teacher after class to see if she would just give me an F so I wouldn’t have to do it. An F for me was a horrifying thought, but speaking in front of the class was worse.

She refused, and I lived with a stomachache and panicky thoughts for two weeks. At last, I eked out a passable report. I think the pounding of my heart must have been louder than my trembling quiet voice. It felt like a miracle that I survived the experience.

(My heart goes out to kids in the same situation today. Luckily, teachers are getting more information about how to help.)

Speaking got easier in college. I didn’t “grow out of shyness” as people often assume will happen; rather, I finally tuned into my passions. The more interested I was, the less I noticed my fear.

Still, I dreaded giving oral reports, and I was one of the quieter students in class. I was driven by passions, but I still wasn’t confident.

My winding career journey

After college, I wanted to save the world, and I thought teaching was the perfect outlet. Despite my fears, I took a job as a health educator.

With the help of on-the-job training and a pre-set curriculum, my speaking anxiety gradually went away! My confidence was growing. Looking back, I now understand that passion (along with support) can trump fear. That lesson has shaped my work.

Even though I had more ease and confidence with public speaking, I still found it exhausting. After far too many days ended with my head on my desk and me in tears, I quit my job without another one lined up. I quickly went through my small savings and had to get help.

I went to a career coach, who helped me understand why my last job wasn’t a good fit. What a relief it was to learn I wasn’t a freak! There was nothing wrong with me, nothing to fix—I was simply an introvert and needed to focus on my strengths.

After that turning point, I tried various roles over the years, including human resources management and web marketing. I chose work that allowed more alone time to think, and I still found ways to have a say in groups. I found my own leadership style, and my confidence grew.

Still, I had a sense that work could be more fulfilling. With much soul searching and professional career guidance, I discovered that I was happiest when using my coaching skills, and I decided that coaching was the best fit for me.

My long-term dream of self-employment started to come into focus as I imagined being a coach. I was ready to spread my wings even wider.

But are introverts good at being self-employed?

At first, I was nervous about whether I could handle things like promoting and growing a business, which are typically associated with extroversion. I simply couldn’t bring myself to promote my business in the standard extroverted way.

To my surprise, the more I did things my own way, that was aligned with me, the better things went! People were drawn to my events and services, probably because of my authenticity and non-salesy approach. My business grew.

Turns out introverts can be great at the so-called extrovert territories of leadership, self-employment, and self-promotion—if they do it their own way.

I discovered I could just show up at a networking event, without perfect words, and simply engage in meaningful conversations. No sales pitch in hand. I was just myself. No extrovert mask. No race to collect stacks of business cards.

The more I took steps that aligned with my heart and my nature, the more excited and fulfilled I felt. My work energized me. People commented that I was glowing. And that glow helped attract more clients. Being true to myself paid off. It felt like a gift from heaven.

Who I am today

People who know me today are surprised to hear that I used to be extremely shy. In fact, sometimes they don’t understand that I’m still introverted, but I am. I’m confident, and I enjoy socializing, but it has to be on my terms. I still value my alone time, when I can slow down, breathe, and listen to what my heart tells me.

Introduction to this advice column

I’m not about doling out directions such as “you should do X because I said so.” I want to help you find and do what is true for you. I can detect where things are getting off track and help nudge you back into your true path.

Above all, I want you to understand that you can earn a living and be true to yourself. I’m challenging that outdated cultural norm that says we have to become extroverted to succeed. That’s what the Quiet Revolution is about, and I’m on board.

Career or business worries? Want to know how to say something at work? Want to figure out how marketing or networking can work best for you? Send your questions to Val Nelson!

How One 14-Year-Old’s Dream To Help Underprivileged Girls Became A National Success

Most 14-year-olds are busy studying for biology tests, trying out for school sports teams and musical productions, and searching for spare time to sleep. Not Allyson Ahlstrom.

At age 14, she started a non-profit organization, and nearly six years later, Threads for Teens is a nationally-recognized organization doing incredible work. The organization’s mission statement explains that it aims to inspire confidence in young women by providing underprivileged teen girls with the opportunity to pick out a new outfit or two from the back of the company’s mobile boutique, which is run out of the back of a pink 18-wheeler.

The Threads for Teens on Tour truck!!! #cantwaittostart #threadsforteens

A photo posted by threadsforteens (@threadsforteens) on



Threads for Teens is based out of Santa Rosa, California, where they have one stationary store. Their clothing racks, and those on the touring truck, are stocked with clothing and accessories which have been donated by a number of local stores as well as nationwide chains including Santa Rosa’s Punch Clothing, LF Stores, Claire’s, and their latest partner, Rue 21.

Ahlstrom has been recognized by dozens of local and national news stations, and featured on TV shows including the Queen Latifah Show and the TODAY show.

And it doesn’t look like Ahlstrom will be stopping anytime soon. This fall, Ahlstrom is taking her organization and its trusty mobile store on tour around the country to deliver clothing to young women all over the nation.

Ahlstrom told the Huffington Post that her initial inspiration for the organization came from reading a book about other young entrepreneurs called Generation Change.”The book was about different service projects teenagers across the country led, some even as young as 12! It was at that point that I decided to do something myself. I came up with the idea for a one-time clothing drive, that has since grown into a national non-profit organization.”

Asked about her mentality throughout the process, Ahlstrom said “I never thought about not being able to succeed, I mostly thought about how I could accomplish the clothing drive. When starting a project, I think it’s important to have big dreams, but to also be realistic about what will happen to begin with. For me, giving ten girls a new outfit was what I wanted to accomplish. I did not start out thinking about going on a national tour.”

As for her advice to young people who are interested in making a real difference in their communities, Ahlstrom says, “Absolutely do not doubt anything!” She says she was surprised by how eager people were to serve their community and pitch in. She also reminds us that no act is too small to count, saying “volunteering for an hour a week (4 hours a month), can have a profound impact on an organization. Making an impact does not have to be on a gigantic scale.”

Ahlstrom says she wants to “grow Threads for Teens into a global girl empowerment organization.” She says she hopes to “open boutiques in all fifty states and around the world,” and even “develop girl empowerment curriculum, build a scholarship endowment, and host a girls summit.”

Check out the Threads for Teens Facebook page and Twitter profile to stay up to date on Ahlstrom’s progress.

My Cross-Dressing Husband Became a Woman, and We Stayed Together

All Sex, Love & Life


How Sex Became a Civil Liberty

How Sex Became a Civil Liberty


How Sex Became a Civil Liberty is the first book to show how and why we have come to see sexual expression, sexual practice, and sexual privacy as fundamental rights. Using rich archival sources and oral interviews, historian Leigh Ann Wheeler shows how the private lives of women and men in the American Civil Liberties Union shaped their understanding of sexual rights as they built the constitutional foundation for the twentieth-century’s sexual revolutions. Wheeler introduces readers to a number of fascinating figures, including ACLU founders Crystal Eastman and Roger Baldwin; nudists, victims of involuntary sterilization, and others who appealed to the organization for help; as well as attorneys like Dorothy Kenyon, Harriet Pilpel, and Melvin Wulf, who pushed the ACLU to tackle such controversial issues as abortion and homosexuality. It demonstrates how their work with the American Birth Control League, Planned Parenthood Federation, Kinsey Institute, Playboy magazine, and other organizations influenced the ACLU’s agenda. Wheeler explores the ACLU’s prominent role in nearly every major court decision related to sexuality while examining how the ACLU also promoted its agenda through grassroots activism, political action, and public education. She shows how the ACLU helped to collapse distinctions between public and private in ways that privileged access to sexual expression over protection from it. Thanks largely to the organization’s work, abortion and birth control are legal, coerced sterilization is rare, sexually explicit material is readily available, and gay rights are becoming a reality. But this book does not simply applaud the creation of a sex-saturated culture and the arming of citizens with sexual rights; it shows how hard-won rights for some often impinged upon freedoms held dear by others.

Jane Lynch Tells The Real Story Of How Lisa Kudrow Became Phoebe

Actress and comedian Jane Lynch knows a little something about Lisa Kudrow’s career before Kudrow landed the iconic role of Phoebe in the beloved TV series “Friends.”

In a conversation with HuffPost Live’s Alyona Minkovski about the final season of “Glee,” Lynch both debunked the “Hollywood urban myth” that claimed she auditioned for the quirky “Friends” role and explained how Lisa Kudrow nailed the part.

“Lisa Kudrow got the role [as Roz] on ‘Fraiser’ and was fired,” Lynch said, later adding, “And then Lisa, they cast in ‘Friends,’ and then I mean, come on, that was the role of a lifetime.”

As far as for the aforementioned urban myth, Lynch said, “I read … that I auditioned for that, too” and later added she wished she had gotten that caliber of audition at that time in her career.

How Oh Honey Became The Fall’s Most Buzzworthy Band

About two years ago, Danielle Bouchard was greeting customers at the Harry Potter exhibit at Discovery Times Square in New York. On those days, she would look across the way at Best Buy Theater, wishing her name was on the marquee.

Well, now it is.

Bouchard is one half of Brooklyn-based folk-pop duo, Oh Honey, and she — along with her bandmate, Mitchy Collins — will play that very theater on Nov. 7.

In an interview with The Huffington Post, Bouchard — honey blonde in a black lace dress and black thigh highs — told the story with a soft sincerity while Collins looked on. The two are currently preparing to embark on a national tour with fellow Brooklyn-based band — and “very close friends,” said Collins — American Authors.

Catching up with @dannibouchard + @mitchycollins of the harmonious @ohhoneymusic for @huffingtonpost. Check them out on tour with American Authors this fall!

“I feel like it’s like watching a movie of my life happen and waiting for myself to catch up,” Collins said of the past few months. “A lot of work and not a lot of sleep. But, in a good way.”

Collins is spot-on about the band’s quick ascent; the two linked up to form Oh Honey in May 2013. Since then, they’ve signed with Atlantic Records and toured with the likes of The Fray and James Blunt. They released their debut EP, “With Love,” in November 2013, and their second EP, “Sincerely Yours,” on Tuesday. Their single, “Be Okay” — a top-25 hit at Hot AC radio outlets nationwide — was covered on Glee’s landmark 100th episode and appears in numerous commercials:

The track is a prime example of why the duo has caught on so quickly; it is an undeniably catchy folk-pop anthem, and Collins and Bouchard make harmony look easy.

And their personalities blend like their voices. When asked to describe their sound, the two riff off of one another until they land on one word, in unison: “Optimistic.”

But Oh Honey needed more than optimism to become a reality. While Bouchard had never toured before Oh Honey, Collins, now in his late 20s, has worked in music since his teens and is hardly a stranger to the difficulties of the field.

“You feel like your life is forgetting about you at times,” Collins said. “You’re so confined to what you’re doing and then your friends and family and loved ones are still going on about their lives.”

But for the duo, the rewards are very much worth the challenges.

“It’s funny, because you’ll be out for so long and you’re missing home,” Bouchard added. “And then you’ll be home for two weeks and you’ll think, ‘I miss tour.’ I feel like we’re really ready to get out on the road.”

oh honey album

Though the band is buzzing to put their music out there, they’ll miss their home base in New York. (Bouchard lives in Greenpoint, Brooklyn; Collins recently relocated to Los Angeles, but will split time between coasts.)

“I’m a vegetarian,” Bouchard said, “and it’s really hard on the road. I always miss those cute little veggie spots that I love in Brooklyn.”

“Yes,” Collins said. “The food. The pizza.”

“It all comes down to food,” nodded Bouchard.

In the future, the duo may bring a bit of Brooklyn on tour with them: they’d like to link up with a local bee farm — which exist on rooftops in Williamsburg and Bushwick, Bouchard explains — to sell their own honey at their shows, though neither are enthused at the thought of farming bees themselves.

“No, I do not want to farm bees,” Bouchard said, laughing.

“I don’t know how much the idea of being surrounded by bees is enticing,” Collins added.

Catch Oh Honey on tour with American Authors, beginning Oct. 21, or stream their new EP, “Sincerely Yours,” now.
