Dr. Nathan Kadlecek, PT
Is a physical therapist committed to providing high quality health information, largely focused on lower back pain and the gross overuse of diagnostic imaging, medication, surgery, low quality treatment methods, and the over-diagnosis of pain conditions. He's also a powerlifter, pain nerd, macro-scale thinker, and wants to help you think differently about pain, healthcare, and life.
Is it good or bad? I don't know, maybe it just is what it is...
I'm fascinated by our obsession with whether something is good or bad and, what types of emotions follow. Often times we feel "less than," if we are "bad" in comparison to someone else. Some of the things we are comparing though, make no sense.
I can understand if you are comparing yourself to another athlete and in order to win, you MUST be "better" in terms of objective numbers -- think track and field. Pretty clear cut. What I understand, but think is silly, is our comparison of "the bigger house," the "nicer car," the "larger wedding ring," among other things.
If your happiness relies on external validation and varying degrees of social signaling, good luck on ever getting to a point you feel content.
Contentment is a whole other topic that i'll need to make some videos about in the future...
Have you been subconsciously envying others, comparing yourself in "good" vs "bad" terms?
