As we leave the old year and face the new, let’s remember the truth: we can’t conquer what we don’t confront. that means that we need incredible courage to look at the parts of ourselves that we don’t like, and start the hard work of befriending them. But just as much as we need courage, we need the opposite: naked vulnerability–to a friend, family member or therapist. Vulnerability and courage, my friends, and we’re off to a new season of emotional victory! Happy New Year!
