Which is why I'm making this a public post. It's the first breath of hope I've had in a long time, in part because it is so eminently practical. It is skills-based, and focuses on the effective. It also emphasizes mindfulness, which I'm finding is essentially paying-the-f**k-attention, more of which I have always thought to be needed in the world. (Which means that I need to learn it as well, because I can't ethically expect behavior from others that I'm unwilling to practice myself.)
So anyway, that's what I've been doing with my (mental) life.
