The Creative Introvert Podcast

Are you a creative? A maker, a doer, an (over)thinker, an entrepreneur who gets their energy from within, who enjoy their time alone, and who is most creative when working solo? That's exactly who this podcast is for. Each week, I'll be bringing you a heady mix of practical philosophy, psychology and mysticism (with a dash of irreverence) in order to bring to light ideas that you can experiment with in your daily life. http://www.thecreativeintrovert.com/

This episode is titled something like 5 tips for embracing your inner weird, and creating great work but the real title, the secret title is actually: 5 Lessons From a 6 ft 3.5” Rabbit.

So this rabbit I mentioned goes by the name of Harvey, and he is a pooka. (I’m not going to go into it in the episode but you should totally google what is a Pooka P-O-O-K-A)

Some of you will already know who or what I’m talking about but for everyone else, don’t worry, I haven’t totally lost the plot: I’m talking about the rabbit from the 1950s classic film Harvey, based on a play and featuring the charming James Stewart.

Why is this relevant?

I could be making an episode about any of my other fave films (Dumb and Dumber, Jacob’s Ladder, Spirited Away…) but I’m not, don’t worry. The reason Harvey is so relevant I feel, is because I’m interested in the sense that many creative introverts I know have, which is that we’re somehow on the outside, that we don’t fit in, that we’re not approved of by society, that we’re somehow doing “it” wrong (whatever it is.) Just that sense of otherness.

And that can make living the life of a creative and actually fulfilling our true dreams and pursuing our true calling/path VERY difficult. I touched on this in the Self-esteem episode, but basically: we’re all programmed to do our best to fit in to society because it makes us feel safe, it’s the smart thing to do in order to survive and not be totally outcast and left to defend ourselves.

The problem is of course, we end up squashing our creative spirit, going against our daimon in many cases, and ultimately feeling quite miserable.

So. Thankfully I have some help from my rabbit friend, and that's what I'm sharing in today's episode of The Creative Introvert!

On today's show, I'm having a conversation with Connor Frost, a Musician and Educator, hailing from just outside New York City. He has toured extensively both as a solo act and with his band, Dizzy Bats, throughout the US, as well as internationally, and has self-released seven albums over the last decade.

We talk about the fear of taking first steps, one quick tip for getting started, the situation musicians find themselves in during the pandemic and much more.

This picks up on the thread I started in the recent episode on People Pleasing, when I mentioned our habit to people please stems from our need to bolster our self-esteem, and promised an episode focussing more on that.

Since reading the book, "Birth and Death of Meaning" by Ernest Becker, I have a lot of new ideas about self-esteem and about “fitting in” to society… and about how we make meaning in our lives, full of suffering as they are.

In this week's episode of the Creative Introvert, I'll be diving into the topic of self-esteem, explaining what it is, why there isn't a problem in seeking to build our self-esteem - but that there may be a better way for us to get it.
