Show Notes

When a social media post about the war in Ukraine goes viral, what does that tell us about the collective heart and struggle, present in the world at the moment? In this episode we discuss Bridget’s post and the overwhelming nature of the juxtaposition of privilege against tragedies of war, and how we hold both deep compassion while tending to our lives as mothers.

We also discuss:
– the morbid curiosity of watching war and disaster unfold and the neurochemical cocktail it creates
– how to consume media consciously
– spiraling into helplessness and focusing on your circle of influence
– questioning whether what you’re consuming is helpful & adaptive, or unhelpful & maladaptive
– how privilege can disconnect us from the human experience
– dedicating pockets of time to being moved by it
– how to keep your heart open rather than disassociating
