Mental health humorist Evan Dumas encourages us to sit in that uncomfortable feeling of being lost and follow the same advice as if you were lost in a forest.
When is the last time you felt truly lost, like you were on a path you couldn’t see, or you had no idea what to do next? That is one of the most human and yet uncomfortable feelings in your emotional library. When we feel lost, we forget that everyone feels this way sometimes. It’s often easier to retreat to the old standbys of panicking, avoiding, or not getting out of bed. In changing how we look at and deal with feeling lost, Evan hopes to remind us that the challenge is appreciating the path you’re on even when you can’t see it. You can find the “It’s OK to feel lost” zine Evan mentions in his talk on his website.
