All humans develop strategies for survival, not just physically but psychologically and emotionally. These strategies become our automatic, and even if they make us miserable, we love the certainty and predictability that they give us. Nevertheless, as we grow older, the impulse to not simply survive but to thrive allures us, even if our inability to thrive torments us. In this episode, we discuss the anatomy of survival strategies (from the events that birth them to the vows and judgments that flow from them), and we explore what it looks like to live beyond them, into a life of joy and flourishing.
