Emotional Needs – Safety: Podcast 075

This podcast is the narrated version of my article The Dark Side of Your Emotional Needs – Safety.

Part two of the series explores the inherent human need to feel safe and secure and shows how it can lead those desperate enough into unsafe situations.

In this episode I talk about:

  • Uncontrolled unconscious drives
  • Safety first
  • Fear, anxiety, panic, and obsession…
  • … meanness, timidity, and depression
  • From chronic reassurance-seeking to horrific flashbacks
  • When people become parasites
  • Captivating cults
  • Ideological safety
  • A more modern form of safety
  • My vulnerable and wealthy client
  • Helping our clients find real, sustainable safety
