157: You Might Be an Asshole

Sep 05, 2023

If you’re in the midst of an infidelity situation, there are plenty of opportunities for you to think of yourself as an asshole. You might be concerned about acting selfish, inconsiderate, unkind, unreasonable, or uncaring. You may be worried about someone you love thinking you’re an asshole or that you think of yourself in this way.

Humans tend to be terrified of the idea that other people won’t like them, but they’re particularly terrified that the people they love might think they’re a total asshole. However, have you ever stopped and considered the possibility that you might be an asshole?

Tune in this week to discover why you might be an asshole and why that might be okay. Dr. Marie Murphy is unpacking the idea that just because someone else thinks you’re an asshole, that doesn’t mean you are an asshole. She’s also discussing the problem of trying to actively avoid anyone taking issue with your behavior and how to start taking more responsibility by accepting that being an asshole at some point in your life is inevitable.
