Podcast Season 2 Episode 12: Polyamory and Insecurity
This week, in the last episode of season 2, I talked with Seva about different ways that polyamory can serve as a format to work through personal insecurities. Obviously, this is a subject everyone approaches in their own way, and we primarily speak through the lens of personal experiences and a little bit through theory in this episode.
We focus on:
the concept of security vs insecurity in general;
how meeting metamours to not build them up into personifications of our insecurities can be helpful;
the process of growing in individual relationships over time and returning to those relationships makes each of those relationships more secure;
and choosing individual partners and having them choose us is security building.
There are other directions we could have gone in, but we were trying to keep faithful to our own insecurities, envies and jealousies that we’ve grown through over the last several years, and our own experiences. We were also trying to stick to a timeline you might all listen to! Hopefully folks enjoy this episode.
If you have some time over the next couple weeks, I’m taking a couple weeks off to record the beginning of Season 3 before starting to release it. In my opinion, Season 2 really got its sea legs in terms of quality, compared to season 1, so if you missed any Season 2 episodes, I’d recommend going back and checking them out, and I’d love it if you left me a review, especially if you’re listening on one of the big platforms like Apple Podcasts. It helps me get more visibility and into more ears. Thanks so much.
In case anyone didn’t notice, during the week after last week’s podcast, the ordinance in Cambridge was successfully amended and I have an update here on the blog explaining the exact changes and why they’re positive in Wednesday’s post.
