113. I am who I am
Diving deeper into a conversation that happened on episode 91. Marisol finds herself still caught between being ones own authentic self, and changing parts of who you are for the betterment of a relationship. This is further illustrated by Adams southern background to be agreeable and gracious, while Marisol is asking him to speak up more, with Marisol's Latin influence to be upfront and in your face while also noting that white southern American culture is asking her to tone it down, or when Adam is asking for feedback to be delivered more gently. Marisol struggles with the dualism between cultural upbringing and the reality of your current community in which you live as well as the more at home issue of working to change parts of your personality to better serve your personal relationships. Listen in to this messy conversation of culture, community, and care.

Have you and your partner shared openly about feelings and emotions surrounding charged topics?

Listen in as Marisol and Adam navigate through in this quick conversation around the topic.

110. Where the Far Left Meets the Far Right
Is it a political spectrum or is it a political circle? After Marisol posted on social media about the wellness and yoga community being a part of the insurrection at the Capital on January 6th she received a lot of feedback and comments surrounding the extremism that can be found in the wellness community. Adam describes this idea of a political circle, where the further you dig, you will eventually find common ground with someone digging from the other side. In the same way we see political moderates find commonality on an array of issues, political extremists from both ends, find their commonality as well. Marisol and Adam dig deep into the commonality surrounding vaccine decisions and conspiracies with the far right and far left and how their privileged identities have played a role in their information literacy and want for community health. https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2021/oct/17/eva-wiseman-conspirituality-the-dark-side-of-wellness-how-it-all-got-so-toxic (Guardian Article: the dark side of wellness) Want more Reading Aloud Podcast? https://www.patreon.com/ReadingAloudPodcast (Become a member of our Pateron)!  Check us out athttps://readingaloud.captivate.fm/ ( https://readingaloud.captivate.fm) (Subscribe, Download, and Review) Follow along on this journey through life onhttps://www.instagram.com/readingaloudpodcast/ ( Instagram) orhttps://www.facebook.com/ReadingAloudPodcast ( facebook) at @readingaloudpodcast or send us a message athttps://my.captivate.fm/readingaloudlove@gmail.com ( readingaloudlove@gmail.com) Thanks for listening!

109. Balancing positive and negative perspectives in a relationship
Marisol and Adam share that they are currently on lockdown after Neo, their son, tested positive for covid-19.

The couple then has a contentious discussion around the balance of reactions and the ability to have your own authentic reaction without overshadowing the space your partner needs to experience their own feelings around a situation.
