Individuals with depression, anxiety, or a number of other similar conditions can manage their disease and lead a normal and fulfilling life. But how can we personally help alleviate some of the suffering for those close to us who may be struggling?
Although some of us may be more prone to extreme anger than others, there's not a person alive who hasn't felt mad at someone or something. The irony is that while anger is a universal emotion, it almost always has a negative stigma associated with it.
Our culture places a great deal of emphasis on the physical, specifically our bodies. I validate the desire to be healthy and fit and to put one's best self forward, but I also think there's an even better way be at peace with ourselves unconditionally.
