Here is the complete transcript to today’s show:
Can magic mushrooms fix a bad relationship. I’m gonna give you the answer right now, actually in a couple seconds. I’m Dr. Dave, I wanna introduce myself for those of you that are new to me and I’m on a morning hike, um, just, uh, around salt lake city, actually it’s called the living room hike and it’s a great hike. It’s a good thing to get up early in the morning and do this. It’s about 1.1 little over one mile up. It’s about a thousand foot vertical, so you’re gonna feel it. But once you get up here, you’re gonna reap the rewards. So, okay. Um, can, can magic mushrooms repair a bad relationship, whether it’s boyfriend, girlfriend, whether it’s, it doesn’t really matter the genders at all, whether it’s, uh, spouses, whatever. Um, my answer’s gonna probably surprise you a little bit. I’m gonna say, unless both parties are very serious and willing to get into the work that needs to be done to repair a relationship.
I’m gonna say the answer is no, what they will do for you, though, they will help you realize that you are in a bad relationship, something that’s toxic and you need to get out of it. That is if you’ve tried everything that needs to be tried to, to, to make things better. Um, but I was in, uh, my first marriage was 23 years long and the last 10 to 11 years of it were, were really, really bad. And, and I really wish I would’ve had magic mushrooms around to help guide me through the work that needed to be done to not only fixing it because fixing it was, um, I found, I figured it was impossible. Now it took me a long, long, long time to figure that fixing figure out that fixing was impossible. Um, the mushrooms would’ve helped me probably within several months or, or sooner realize how bad the situation was and to get out of it.
So if you are in a toxic relationship, I will tell you that. Um, and this is without even having you do magic mushrooms to figure this out, I would say, you need to get out and you need to get out now. No waiting. No, let’s see how things go. Let’s see if things get better. No, you know, in your heart, you know, in your heart, if things are not going well, and in a very decent percentage of relationships, people are just kind of waiting through, get going through the motions, hoping that things get better. Fig saying to themselves, this is what life is. You know, it’s not perfect, but you know something I’m here to tell you that is total. The reason I can tell you this confidently is because I’ve been through it all. I have been through this and trying to make the best out of a toxic relationship is going to get you nowhere, except for, uh, depression, anxiety, bad feelings every day are almost every day. Maybe not every day, but almost every day. And, and it’s not gonna work and you’re gonna reach an old age and you’re gonna pretty much look in the mirror and you’re gonna say, what in the did I do? Why did
I, why did I go through this? Why didn’t I get out of this? When I was younger, when I could, when I was more vibrant, when I could have found somebody else or found another direction in my life, I’m telling you guys gals, get with the program. I just actually was coaching somebody recently. And he, within the past few weeks, he messaged me and said, Dave, you saved my life. And that made me feel really good. But if also FA made me feel really bad, the toxicity that this person was going through, and he didn’t really see the forest from the trees and didn’t know what needed to be done, where it was very, very clear to me once I not only told him that, but pretty much, uh, made him, uh, become responsible for his actions as responsible for his life. Uh, he, he didn’t, he didn’t really know how to handle things or didn’t know really what direction to go in his life.
So I’m here to share with you. Um, you need to take action. You need to take action. Now, the plant medicine is only gonna help you so much and you need to take action and complete the job that maybe you’ve thought about starting, or, uh, really haven’t thought about starting. But now maybe watching me, you’re thinking about starting do it. It will be the next step to the rest of your life. And I promise you, uh, I don’t know you personally, but I promise you in most cases, it’s the thing that needs to be done. If you have any questions, make sure you just make, make them, put them in the comments. I’ll try to help as many of you as I possibly can until next time I’m up here in the living room. I really hope this was helpful. Get out there and do the work that you need to do. And don’t think the mushrooms alone are gonna make everything better. You, the mushrooms are gonna show you the way and help you make the changes in your life that are necessary. So next time, Dr. Dave, David magic, talk to you later.
