    Wow Lisa, that was incredible! We definitely need to change our views on mental health and emotional literacy as Holly put it. I love (and will keep in my head) the quote you shared “worry is just the misuse of imagination”. I believe it will be helpful. And I really love how you said seeking regular therapy is like “going to the gym for your mind”.

    I can relate to the quote from chapter 8 you used and it is actually the basis for my writing. It helps me heal as I write along with my purpose of helping others. I used that especially in the article on my website The Shatter of Suicide from both what I went through and what I saw happen to others.

    Your writing exercise is actually homework from my therapist about a particular subject we touched upon this week, so not only is it a writing exercise, but a healing one combined. You are truly a Blessing in the world. Thank you for all that you do!

    With appreciation,
