Listen on iTunes | Spotify

Five years ago, how well would you have thought you’d be able to navigate everything you’re dealing with right now? A global pandemic, natural disasters, political turmoil… not to mention whatever’s going on in your personal life. OCD and anxiety patient “John” has been pleasantly surprised at his own resilience and ability to cope with it all, and that resilience gives him hope, hope he’d like to pass on to you. And starting this week, we’re adding a new feature: Dr. Maggie shares actionable insights on how to get the most out of the podcast, and out of therapy, in her Therapeutic Attitude Newsletter. This week’s topic: inviting self-acceptance.
