You Are Always Able To Respond

All of us could die tomorrow, so we need to learn how to live.

In this episode of the Beauty of Conflict, Susan and CrisMarie dissect the idea of responsibility, meaning being able to respond. In her early twenties, Susan was diagnosed with an advanced cancer process, and after months of treatment, her doctor told her it wasn’t working, that there were no alternatives, until she took the bull by the horns. Throughout this conversation, she and CrisMarie discuss how that can bring freedom and agency to oneself, instead of wasting energy on blame. They share examples from their lives where they realized that responsibility is not necessarily attached to achieving a desired outcome, but more to being aware of the choices they are constantly taking.

Listen to this episode and think about how you can respond and advocate for your life!
