There was a time in my life when reading the Victorian novels of George MacDonald were the only thing keeping me from going under. His characters were so real and so noble that I found in them a source of grounding amidst the chaos going on in my life. Gene Jimenez says much the same thing.
“ A couple of suggestions. I have found great support and solace in fiction. Not junk novels, but good, solid literature with depth whose characters and situations “call forth” the “resourceful self” that we all need to get through the dark stuff.
Also, meditation– being present in the moment– is therapeutic, and can be drawn on at any time of day or night, in crisis or otherwise.”
