Conceal; Don't Feel: A-Side

Nadine Pittam

This episode, we talk about the film Frozen and the dangers of suppression and the power of expression! We talk about how narratives that are spun about us, and the way experiences are framed in our lives – especially our childhoods – are key points influencing who we become. 

It’s about the impact of being told we have too much power. It’s about how we heal when we have received messages that tell us to conceal, calm down, or be less of ourselves. It’s not always the incident itself that causes the trauma, sometimes it’s more how the incident is handled. If we are told our superpower (or perhaps just our self) is dangerous, then it is likely to become dangerous. If we have once hurt someone, that doesn’t mean we are inherently bad.

We also talk about the role of family, the role of love and the role of a potential therapist in our healing. That healing can happen when we become able to embody our own power, as Elsa does. How beautiful it can be when we are no longer hiding.

Note on audio

It sounds like there is a grumpy gorilla in the next room at two or three points during this recording. I promise you, there was not!

 

It’s just that Anoushka and I battled with some background noises during recording. Someone nearby was using a hammer and chisel, and the biproduct of my dulling that sound means that you will hear an occasional background grunt! 

 

Both Anoushka and I think it’s not actually too distracting at all, and it’s certainly loads better than it was.

 

 

Rest assured, if the idea comes from someone else I will always credit that person, and there is definitely water-tight confidentiality for my clients.
