39. What Can You Do When Your Core Beliefs Get Shaken? (With Dr. Kali Cyrus)

By the time we’re adults, most of us have a good sense of how the world works and how we fit into it. But what are you supposed to do if something happens that shakes all you thought you knew to the ground? Psychiatrist Kali Cyrus is a Black, queer, cis woman who all of a sudden felt incredibly unsafe in the world with the rise of Donald Trump and the societal shifts that followed. Kali tells Claire about the moment it all became too painful for her to bear, how she retreated from the world as a result, and how she pulled herself out of the safe but small bubble she created for herself.
