I went to see a powerful one-man show this week in New York called Without You, by Anthony Rapp, the actor who originated the role of Mark in the musical Rent on Broadway. Anthony shared a moving story in the show about dealing with the loss of his mother and being told that “the only way out is through,” regarding his grief journey. This phrase and concept, while challenging at times, is so important for us to remember as we navigate various aspects of work, family, and life, especially these days. On this episode, I talk about why it’s essential for us to lean into discomfort, even when it’s painful or scary. I also share some specific things we can do individually and collectively to make our way effectively through hard things.
