Say your truths and seek them in others
In a lyrical, unexpectedly funny talk about heavy topics such as frayed relationships and the death of a loved one, Elizabeth Lesser describes the healing process of putting aside pride and defensiveness to make way for soul-baring and truth-telling. Her 3 foundational and guiding lessons are:
- Uncover your soul
- Stay open, stay curious, even (and especially) when it’s painful
- Step off your hamster wheel into deep time – just breathe, just be
“You don’t have to wait for a life-or-death situation to clean up the relationships that matter to you,” she says. Elizabeth gently encourages us to become braver about being authentic with the people in our lives, so say our truths, but more importantly, to seek out the truths of others.
