Living with Yourself Reveals How Men Deal with Depression
Is Living with Yourself an accurate depiction of how men deal with depression?
This Psych Cinema focuses on Paul Rudd’s latest Netflix series, Living with Yourself. The show follows Miles, a struggling screenwriter and lackluster husband, who goes to a novel spa that promises to make him a better version of himself. The real problems come when Miles finds that he’s been replaced—by a happier, cloned version of himself.
Living with Yourself is rich in psychology, particularly the topic of male depression.
Therapist Jonathan Hetterly breaks down the nature of depression and self-loathing, how men deal with insecurities, as well as our culture’s never-ending race for external happiness. Tune in to hear Jonathan’s analysis.
