Imagine a society where everyone understood and knew how to appropriately respond to wounded behaviors, symptoms of stress, mental illness, grief, fear, pain.

Instead of attempting to get revenge, enable, shame, punish or publicly humiliate each other for our faults, we’d surround each other with compassion, encourage the building of strengths, promote social learning, practice conscious inclusivity, boundaries, accountability and create daily opportunities for corrective emotional experiences.

When we feel understood and accepted we can heal. Radical stuff.

Wouldn’t it be nice? xo
