In this episode, author Betsy Otter Thompson and I examine some of the key themes in her book, “LoveHuman.” The book’s insights are structured in the form of answers to 21 of life’s fundamental questions: the ones we ask over and over. In the answers to those questions, Betsy shares her insights for finding comfort in a world where uncomfortable things happen. Whatever the circumstances, the process of turning things around—and finding new possibilities—is the same: learning to embrace this world as it is—and the people around us as they are—and loving whatever that is. Not because it’s a perfect world, but because as we love and accept life as it is, love and acceptance grow.
