Which Brojo course does this reflection apply to?
No More Mr Nice Guy intro
What are the main insights you had about yourself in doing this course?
I I was able to identify those gay behaviors that I use and put them into a context.
What actions did you take and how did you feel during those experiences?
I listened to the podcast and identified the type of nice guy was. I also had the realization that I was a smattering of the other behaviors, For instance, even though I identify with the critic and loner I have aspects of the other two. I am a lot more mindful of when I am avoiding or judging. A concrete action occurred the other day when a colleague publicly called me out on something. I respectfully asked her to stop and told her we would sort it out later. I didn’t overreact or be too aggressive but stood my ground. I felt a little wired after and self conscious.
What is the one main thing you want to remember from this course and keep applying to your life?
I want to keep in mind that l have a tendency to behave certain ways in certain situations which aren’t particularly helpful and perhaps even damaging. I will also bear in mind that I can skillfully interact with these behaviours to be more genuine and forge deeper connections with people
What can you do to ensure that what you learned from this course continues to improve your life?
I have been honest with my partner about what l am doing and asked her to call me out when she notices me being dishonest. Doing a couple of things so far - taking the hard road -has made me feel good and I like feeling good- Each small success builds on the previous one as l discover that if l am honest about a mistake or a feeling that the world doesn’t end.
