Today we’re talking about anxiety, depression, and all the other kinds of ongoing mental health issues that are very common among the people that I work with. I struggle with both anxiety and depression myself, and, in the past, have often found myself juggling problems and avoiding conflict, causing the anxiety and depression to worsen.


Since then, I’ve learned some key lessons in why we should not avoid conflict, nor conflate problems with reality. And today, I’ll be letting you in on all that I’ve learned about why you should address conflicts head-on, how not to mix up your problems with reality, and how to get real about your life!


Topics Discussed:
