A standard of normal
We open this episode with Jeremiah describing his ‘normal’ childhood—his mother was addicted to cocaine, his father to marijuana, and eventually his siblings to drinking and various drugs. Being an Enneagram type 7, his need to please people and feel accepted, along with his environment and people around him, led to his own addictions and abuse of alcohol and heroin.
Becoming who he wanted to be
Jeremiah describes the moment the drugs stopped working, how he hated them, hated doing them, and how they were no longer enough to take away from the feelings he felt about himself—self-hatred. It was during rounds of rehab that he was introduced to the 12 Steps, and to the person who would show him a new way to direct his excess energy.
In the end, it’s about your perception and the story you tell yourself
We dig into his relationship with his wife, Mallory, their interactions while growing up together, and the pivotal moment when it turned from friends to romance. Despite family members trying to tear them apart, rehab, and trauma along the way, we talk about their everyday commitment to each other, to grow, to build the life they want together.
He offers insight into how to truly dig deeper, to know yourself, your motivations, your fears, what drives you at the core and how to channel that into becoming the best version of yourself.
