Sharing our true feelings with others can feel like a risk. But as Anxiety & OCD patient “Jared” will attest, that risk can bring remarkable rewards. In the second installment of this 4-part series, Dr. Maggie and “Jared” explore the root causes of avoidance, the value of vulnerability and accepting support, and the benefits of turning toward your shadow and exposing it to the light of community.
