Relationship Minimalism, Part II, After Episode 189:
Have you looked at each Relationship imprinting your life for the future? Today we follow up on a two-part theme around Minimalism with our regular co-host for 2018, Travis Roznos. Travis returns as a follow up to last months, episode 189, to dig deeper into the minimalist actions involving the different Relationship imprints on our lives.
Travis is an ex-corporate ladder climber in the advertising technology space turned catalyst for change in the way the world identifies with and experiences masculinity. Achieving and performing were all that mattered in my twenties until the point where after getting the promotions and making the money, I kept coming back to feeling completely empty. All my intentions and energy were focused on consuming more things external to myself to build up my identity. A lack of having a father figure my entire life has taken me on this journey of untangling myself from the social pressures we feel as men to be a certain way, to prove our manhood. Taking down the masks socially and emotionally has been my path to freedom, natural expression, and purpose. I’ve built a community for men to do the same and it’s called The Drop. As an embodiment coach and a current Wim Hof Instructor in training my focus is to create a path for men that will allow them to cultivate the way of being and discipline to carry out a life of depth and purpose.

You are not wrong to reassess who you’re spending a lot of time with. Develop boundaries to better help you out. If you notice that there is a lonely phase, that’s okay too. Travis is giving you permission to embrace this. There is going to be tough conversations to be had. It’s very important and is worth the time spent reassessing.
