The Angry Therapist, also known as John Kim, is today’s guest and is basically to therapy who I am to yoga.
For some context, John is a licensed therapist, published author, speaker, and life coach. But he started a blog called The Angry Therapist as a place to be himself without a filter while he was going through a divorce. It turned into something people really resonated with because typically people don’t see therapists as real people with real feelings. He didn’t want to be that guy. He blogged about his shortcomings, revelations, and his views on relationships, the self help business, and the world. He found CrossFit, bought a motorcycle, and started coaching people in unconventional ways.
I don’t know if you’ve noticed this, but therapists are having a moment on Instagram. And when I was looking for an interesting person in this field to bring on to talk about important issues, I found a lot of people, but not a lot of INTERESTING people… then I found John and I was like OH! THIS is our guy!
He’s a lot more transparent than traditional therapists and doesn’t put himself on a pedestal at all. We had a really interesting chat about relationships and after changing gears, how to build your purpose in life.
It’s a great show & I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. Let’s jump into it…
