We are Believers: Podcast

We believe that we are all creators of our own realities. Everything is possible and impossible at the same time. If we change our perceptions, the world around us will change. In this podcast, we examine everyday life situations using a practice of honest self-reflection, clear communication and optimistic realism. Our goal is not to tell you what to do as we cannot claim to know the solution to every problem. We can only demonstrate our approach to living and express what we believe. Hosted by Daria Hackenberg and Hollis P Monroe. https://instagram.com/wrbelievers https://facebook.com/wrbelievers

episode 1: Is love a feeling or a choice?

Can we choose to love someone?In this episode, we ask: Is love a feeling or choice? In trying to find an answer, we share our fairly strong and different points of view.

Throughout our conversation,
We examine the theory of one person who believes that love (or more specifically, being open to love) is always our choice.
We discussed the role of love in an abusive relationship...

Who should pay on the first date?

“Does a man have to pay on a first date?”

People on the street were asked this question by actors from a popular German comedy show but the answers they received in the actual segment were not nearly as interesting as comments under the video.

One man had such a particularly grandiose justification of his position that we had no choice but to devote an entire episode to giving our take on his premise...

The 5 Languages of love or how to express and comprehend loving until death do us part

Imagine yourself deep in love.

You might want to tell your partner  "I love you" every 10 minutes to make sure that they know how you feel about them. You want them to have absolutely no doubt about being loved.

It's not quite realistic, is it?

Your partner might even think you're crazy.  But how else would you show your love?

Some people come home every day with flowers and gifts. Some cook exquisite dinner meals to please their other half...

We have touched upon the importance of communication and open dialogue in quite a few of our past episodes.  In this episode, we decided to talk about it specifically and so we invited a professional linguist, Professor Tiffany Dyson (@tiffetzjiff) to inform the conversation.

Tiffany shares some of the knowledge she has gained about communication through the language research in which she is involved as well as through her personal life experiences and travels...

Between Frienship and Attraction

"Hey, Daria, what's going on with you and Hollis?”

“Are you dating Hollis?”


“Why not?”

“It is not possible that there’s nothing going on.”

“After all, you met on Tinder!”

You are a man and a woman!

Clearly, you are deceiving yourselves and do not want to recognize the attraction between you!"

And on it goes......

Daria Clarifies Her Answers

Wow! Thank you all for the huge response and great feedback to our previous episode "Blitz Round #1: Answering some OkCupid Questions."

We received many words of encouragement and gratitude for this Blitz-Round format. Almost everyone seemed to enjoy it, so obviously with approval and support like that, we will surely keep it going.

But along with this, it seems that some people were particularly struck by Daria's statement that she doesn’t need a “nice” man around her...

Who's hidden behind the tattoo?

Do people really evaluate us based solely upon our appearance? 

Are we treated differently by others when we don’t appear to fit their description of “normal”? 

Could it be that this often negatively interpreted thought is most often rooted within our own minds?

In this episode, we welcome our very first guest: Tattoo artist Ina Bond (www.instagram.com/inabond)...

Comparing yourself to others

Almost every day, we compare ourselves to other people. Often we take someone as an example of what we think we should be. We want to be able have what they have or do what they do.  And very often, we become upset or jealous because we are not as beautiful, successful, or happy as someone else seems to be...
