Ep 11 the stigma of loneliness with Matt Landsiedel

As a human emotion, loneliness affects everyone. But the stigma of loneliness prevents us from talking about it. It prevents us from doing the things that our loneliness is telling us to do: take steps to get meaningful connection in our lives. It doesn’t have to be this way. Join me for a conversation with Matt Landsiedel from Matt Landsiedel Coaching and Inspired to be Authentic in my next episode of my podcast for gay men ‘Connection over Coffee with The Loneliness Guy’ and let’s talk about the stigma of loneliness and moving beyond it. I’m working to de-stigmatise loneliness and promote authentic connection for gay men globally, one coffee at a time. You’re not alone anymore. About Matt Matt’s story is uplifting, inspiring and eminently relatable. A reforming perfectionist and recovering addict, he’s spent the last few years working through his sources of shame and practices ‘healthy vulnerability’ and knows that this is both the way through shame, our shame-induced behaviours and getting the connection we need.

Ep. 14 - Comparisons CAN bring joy - with Jesse Elkins

As a society – as a gay community – we’re constantly comparing ourselves to each other, to those who are successful and to celebrities. For the gay man who’s experiencing loneliness and a lack of authentic connection, this can make us feel even more alone and that we don’t belong. It can make us feel like we need to work harder to project an image to the world so we’re also accepted. Comparison really is the thief of joy. Or is it? Join me and Jesse Elkins from Full Sun Fitness and Nutrition for a coffee and join our thought-provoking and inspiring chat about how we can turn these comparisons into sources of inspiration, joy and connection. About Jesse Jesse is the founder and owner of Full Sun Fitness and Nutrition in Charlotte. It’s a personal training and nutrition coaching service for Queer and ally communities near and far. It was born after too many years of experiencing and witnessing wellness challenges and access gaps for Queer Folx. He decided that if he didn’t feel safe or comfortable in many wellness settings, others might not either. Turns out, he was right!

Ep. 16 - Turning shame into our ally - with Calan Breckon

In this must-listen episode, I chat with Calan Breckon from Discovering Your Truth about how we can turn our shame into our ally. We all have shame and it's a POWERFUL behavioural driver for us gay men. Think about it: what would you do to stop the thing your most ashamed of from being discussed and judged freely on social media? Shame can be a key factor in our loneliness. We work so hard to hide it from the world that we never fully show up in our interactions with other humans. But we can turn our shame into our ally and use it to get the real connection we need in life. How? Get a coffee, settle in, press play and listen. About Calan Calan is an award-winning certified Personal Development Coach, writer, and educator based in Toronto. His focus is teaching people how to go from feeling lost, overwhelmed and exhausted by life to being an empowered and confident decision maker and experience what it’s like to finally feel in control without the stress and shame of trying to figure it all out alone.
