ESTOx: You Don't Need to be Happy by Danielle Posa
One of the reasons why we are experiencing a mental health crisis is due to the fact that we all put so much pressure on ourselves to "put on a happy face", be positive, or give the impression that we have it all together. But what we fail to realize is that "happiness" actually SHOULDN'T be the end goal, and in fact, the constant pursuit of happiness can lead to unhappiness. In this session, Danielle will address the difference between what it means to be truly thriving vs. simply being happy. And she will talk about ways we can create space for our own humanity and all the emotions that are associated with an authentically fulfilling life.
