Overcoming The Victim Mentality - Rob Henderson

Walk-Ins Welcome Episdoe #271
3

Rob Henderson returns to talk about his new book Troubled: A Memoir of Foster Care, Family, and Social Class. He and Bridget discuss the realities of the foster care system, what it’s like to be a foster kid, the kinds of people who become foster parents, and the difficulties of writing such a memoir. They explore the hardest chapter to write, the process of fact-checking a memoir, their experience as teens vs. teens today, and doing irresponsible things in a responsible way. They cover why dwelling on victimhood is a luxury, the reframing of everything as problematic, trying to tear everything down rather than finding the value in it, Rob’s experience at Yale after serving in the military, having a front row seat to the birth of the woke movement, the insular world of the educated elite, using wokeness as a way of seeking status, and building a career outside of traditional academia and media.

Bridget Phetasy admires grit and authenticity. On Walk-Ins Welcome, she talks about the beautiful failures and frightening successes of her own life and the lives of her guests. She doesn’t conduct interviews—she has conversations. Conversations with real people about the real struggle and will remind you that we can laugh in pain and cry in joy but there’s no greater mistake than hiding from it all. By embracing it all, and celebrating it with the stories she’ll bring listeners, she believes that our lowest moments can be the building blocks for our eventual fulfillment.
