Here is what I know.
My deepest truth serving as the baseboards in my house of dreams:
Connection is the cure.
Every time, without exception, connection to other souls is the cure to what ails you.
The opposite of sad is not happy, it’s connected.
The opposite of afraid? Lost? Losing?
Often it is an outrageously hard swig of medicine to take, especially when inertia and self-doubt creep in. But indeed, connecting with other humans through shared time, space, and personal truths is the cure every time.
