"I just finished a couple’s therapy session. We’ve had about 15 or 20 sessions so far. It’s helpful. It sort of allows you to work through things at a slow, guided pace, as opposed to dealing with things during the reactive flare ups of everyday life.""What’s the final goal?""I guess to rediscover the deep connection that got lost in the fray over time. Getting back to the fundamentals of a relationship.""What are the fundamentals?""Support. Honesty. Trust.""And which of those are you having the hardest time getting back to?""Trust.""Why’s that?""History."

"I’m a neuroscience researcher.""If you could give one piece of advice to a large group of people, what would it be?""Listen to your inner voice.""You’re a scientist. Isn’t ‘inner voice’ a spiritual term?""Bullshit! You’ll hear scientists talking about following their inner voice as much as you’d hear a musician or a priest.""So how do you know which of your thoughts are your true inner voice?""All of them are! The question is— how much weight do you give them? How much authority do you give your own thoughts? Are you taking them seriously? Or are you sitting in front of the damn tube letting other people tell you what to think?"
