#54 - How's It Healing? (featuring Gregry Gilroy) (No Easy Answers)
This episode is a Chapter Cast, in which I read a chapter from my book, No Easy Answers: A Book of Life-Changing Questions. This chapter is titled, "What Would I Tell My Best Friend?" This question is about stepping outside yourself to get some perspective on your situation. Put yourself in your best friend's shoes? What advice would you give him or her if he or she were going through what you're going through? We're often less forgiving and understanding of ourselves than we are of those who are close to us, so sometimes it helps to treat yourself like your own best friend.
