Todays episode with Ismael Brown is all about his recent book, “My Own Worst Enemy: A Black Mans American Story.” In just a short hour we discuss how this book dismantles everything men are taught to believe about manhood in America and regardless of his circumstances, Ismael believes he is still to blame for his shortcomings.
His failed relationships, friendships, and the unbearable weight he uncovers of fearing the people who profess their love for him the most. The honesty about his trauma and vulnerability about chasing away love even when its the deepest thing we crave is a problem so many of us struggle with.
This riveting conversation is something regardless of race WE ALL NEED TO HEAR. Ismael discusses suicide attempts, how the bootstrap theory alone didn’t work for him, and how forgiveness is one of the keys to a happy life.
