Facing Reality

Discussion Facilitator: Jocelyn Furbush. September 21, 2019.

In honor of Friday's youth climate strike, our discussion will respond to some advice by Heather Havrilesky to someone struggling with climate anxiety, which applies to other forms of anxiety too, I think. "Real joy can come from facing reality, no matter how ugly it is. A sense of calm can come from embracing sadness, no matter how wrenching it is. You’re being asked to enter a new life now and let go of what you thought you needed. We all have to do that, together."
