BREAKING: the Ontario College of Psychologists @CPOntario has demanded that I submit myself to mandatory social-media communication retraining with their experts for, among other crimes, retweeting @PierrePoilievre and criticizing @JustinTrudeau and his political allies.
I am to take a course of such training (with reports documenting my "progress" or face an in-person tribunal and suspension of my right to operate as a licensed clinical psychologist.
About a dozen people from all over the world submitted complaints about my public statements on Twitter and Rogan over a four year period (out of the 15 million who follow me on social media) claiming that I had "harmed" people (not them) with my views.
In its wisdom @CPOntario decided to pursue these complaints even though they could have dismissed them@as vexatious
I have been accused of harming people (although none of the complainants involved in the current action were clients of mine, past or present, or were even acquainted with any of my clients).
And even though many of them falsely claimed that they were or had been clients of mine and were allowed by @CPOntario to have their complaints investigated despite this falsehood
We are now in a situation in Canada under @JustinTrudeau where practicing professionals can have their livelihoods and public reputations threatened in a very serious manner for agreeing with the Official Opposition and criticizing major government figures.
If I comply the terms of my re-education and my punishment will be announced publicly. I have already had the second most serious category of punishment levied against me and have been deemed at high risk to "re-offend."
Canadians: your physicians, lawyers, psychologists and other professionals are now so intimidated by their commissar overlords that they fear to tell you the truth. This means that your care and legal counsel has been rendered dangerously unreliable.
Ask Queen's U law@professor @PardyBruce if he concurs on the legal front.
To reiterate: I face public disgrace, mandatory political re-education, disciplinary hearing and potential loss of my clinical licensing for agreeing with @PierrePoilievre and criticizing our standing PM @JustinTrudeau
I am willing (if @CPOntario concurs, which they won't) to make absolutely every word of all this fully public so that everyone can decide for themselves what is actually happening
And to let the chips fall where they will in consequence

Is there a cost? ⁦⁦@nytimes⁩ Ask the adolescents whose pandering cowardly medical "professionals" utterly inexcusably castrated then or cut off their breasts. "Is there a cost?" You sanctimonious butchers.…
Lies, or utterly inexcusable ignorance. See… I'm going to talk to Chloe today.
Is that all? "Is there a cost?"

How can you improve your personality?

The answer is to develop some micro-routines on the other side of the personality distribution.

So if you're disagreeable, maybe you could start learning how to do nice things for people. (1/5)
If you take disagreeable people who are depressed and you get them doing nice things for other people, their depression tends to lift.

By the same token, if you're agreeable you should practice doing some things for yourself & being more tough-minded in your negotiations. (2/5)
Maybe you're extroverted. Learn to spend time with yourself, right?
If you're low in openness, try reading a book outside your sphere of interest now and then.

If you're conscientious, you should probably learn how to relax occasionally. (3/5)

Be grateful in spite of your suffering.

You might love people despite their limitations, but you also love them because of their limitations.

That is something very much worth understanding. Doing so may help you see how gratitude remains possible. (1/4)
Despite the fact that the world is a very dark place, and that each of us has our black elements of soul, we see in each other a unique blend of actuality and possibility that is a kind of miracle. (2/4)
One that can manifest itself, truly, in the world, in the relationships we have that are grounded in trust and love. (3/4)

If someone's anxious about something, and it's getting in their way, you take what they're anxious about, and you define it.

Because that already delimits it. One of the problems with being anxious about something is you won't speak of it. It's like Voldemort. (1/5)
And then, if you don't speak of it, it's way bigger than it should be. As soon as you start talking about it, you've cut it down to size.

You're not as afraid of as many things as you think. And you're braver than you know and more capable. (2/5)
So, as soon as you're brave enough to start talking about what you're afraid of, you see that there's more to you than you thought and that there's less to the problem than you thought. (3/5)

How to tell if you are speaking authentically.

Listen to yourself talk as if a stranger was talking. Try not to identify too much with what you are saying. Then, observe.

See if what you are saying makes you feel stronger, physically, or weaker. (1/4)
If it makes you feel weaker, stop saying it. Try to reformulate your speech until you can feel the ground under your feet solidifying. Then practice only saying things that make you strong. (2/4)
Stop trying to use your speech to get what you want. You don’t necessarily know what you want. Instead, try to articulate what you believe to be true as carefully as possible. Then, accept the outcome. (3/4)

We can't handle deceit or betrayal.

The people I've seen who've been really hurt have been hurt most by deceit. That's worth thinking about. (1/4)
You get walloped by life. There's absolutely no doubt about that. But I thought for a long time that people can hang handle earthquakes and cancer, and even death.

But they can't handle betrayal, and they can't handle deception. (2/4)
People can't handle having the rug pulled out underneath them by people they love and trust. That does them in, you know? It makes them ill. It hurts them. Psychophysiologically, it damages them.

But more than that, it makes them cynical, bitter and vicious, and resentful. (3/4)
