Embrace Your Raw, Strange Magic

The way we’re taught to live has got to change, says author Casey Gerald. Too often, we hide parts of ourselves in order to fit in, win praise, be accepted. But at what cost? In this inspiring talk, Gerald shares the personal sacrifices he made to attain success in the upper echelons of American society — and shows why it’s time for us to have the courage to live in the raw, strange magic of ourselves.

TED: Ideas Worth Spreading
TED: Ideas Worth Spreadinghttps://www.ted.com/
TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment, and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. Meanwhile, independently run TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world.

CONVERSATIONS

  1. Oh the pill of repression is easily swallowed….
    It’s bitter side effects are the most unbearable restraints!
    If I forget to believe what I am told, I will be better, I will be gold!
    This is so moving and so really true Casey Gerald!
    It’s when we look back we need to know why. The courage you speak of is truly within the authenticity of just being who you are. Ask the questions, keep on wondering. It’s not because we are told that something is good. It’s all because we tell ourselves that we are good. You count sidewalk squares.. I remember trying to keep my little legs in rhythm to keep one foot in a square at a time as well.. instead of thinking about the distance, I produced a sequence of successes. If I messed up.. I started over. In the winter I shovel the snow. Instead of feeling defeated by the massive snow clearing.. I give myself a number.. how many lines back and forth will it take to complete. It’s never the same. Every snowfall has a different outcome,
    Thanks for this TED talk. I enjoyed it
