After more than a year of social distancing, many of us continue to struggle in our day-to-day routines. Be it loneliness, grief, impatience, or frustration with family or roommates, Kimberly Brown encourages us to greet all our feelings with a kind and an open-hearted embrace. Such kindness for ourselves and others, Brown explains, helps us develop resilience in the face of challenges.
