Monocycle, Episode 57: Do We Ever Really Change?

In partnership with Society6

INQUIRING MINDS WANT TO KNOW! Are we capable of change, or what? Is it terrible if we don’t — can’t — change? What if the expectations were to learn how to better manage the qualities we dislike in ourselves instead of to do away with them completely? Would we feel more whole as individuals, knowing that we’re not supposed to do 180s, and that on the contrary, we just have to be who we are? In this week’s episode of Monocycle, I take you on a psychological trip (which is different from a vacation) that poses these questions, sets out to answer some of them and utilizes the trenches of my memory to navigate all of the above. At one point, we’re in 11th grade, and at another, we’re back in the present. There is some dilly dallying, some questioning of whether there is such thing as an original thought, but the majority of the content revolves around the titular question and doesn’t really answer it but does offer a respite from Fashion Week, so…enjoy at your own risk!
