Caleb Stanton (Episode 7)

Caleb Stanton is a caffeine-dependent husband and father of two young children. Even though he loves his job, he’d rather spend his days at the beach, strumming a guitar and pondering the human experience. When he’s not looking for his keys, you might find Caleb writing a story he’ll never post or composing a song he’ll never perform. Most of all, Caleb loves his family, a dram of cheap Scotch, and thinking about the things that give life meaning.

On this episode, we talk about navigating nuance and difficult conversations with loved ones. Caleb shares about his mental health journey and he offers a great explanation of ADHD. He shares about how he and his wife are trying to give their kids skills to care for their mental health, especially how to process the big emotions that kids have, and that we still have as adults too. In fact, we have a musical recording for the first time on the podcast, an original song written by Caleb and his son about Big Feelings.

Lyrics to “Big Feelings” by Caleb and Everett Stanton

Big hearts are made for the strongest
The ones who will use them for good
But sometimes it can be overwhelming
I know, sometimes we’re misunderstood

Forget what they say about being a man
Your heart and your mind are much stronger than them
You’ve got big feelings… and they’re beautiful

Unbridled and free with your heart on your sleeve
You’re far more courageous than I’ll ever be
You’ve got big feelings… and they’re beautiful

Some days you’re the life of the party
Others, it’s tough to even smile
Your heart is your superpower
But I know the gift comes with some long miles

Forget what they say about being a man
Your heart and your mind are much stronger than them
You’ve got big feelings… and they’re beautiful

Unbridled and free with your heart on your sleeve
You’re far more courageous than I’ll ever be
You’ve got big feelings… and they’re beautiful

Don’t change a thing
Don’t change a thing about the way you are
Don’t change a thing
Hold your head high ’cause you’re perfect just the way you are

Forget what they say about being a man
Your heart and your mind are much stronger than them
You’ve got big feelings… and they’re beautiful

Unbridled and free with your heart on your sleeve
You’re far more courageous than I’ll ever be
You’ve got big feelings… and they’re beautiful

Don’t change a thing
‘Cause you’re perfect just the way you are
