233: Nick Santo – Your better than your guilt, shame, and anxiety

Nothing says guilt, shame, and anxiety than being a gay man who had to hide who you are for years – regardless of how many years you’ve hid your truth. And, it doesn’t matter what that truth is – lack of confidence, fear of coming out, trusting you can get that promotion, or even wanting to be in a monogamous relationship. Our socialized DNA can play havoc in our gay/bi/trans lives as men. Today Dr. Nick Santo – Psychotherapist – and I share our journeys to overcoming guilt, shame, anxiety, and depression and provide you with tips for doing the same.
