What’s Helping Me Now: October 2021

The internet is, like all things, both bad and good. When I find an online nugget of truth or knowledge that brightens my day, I want to share it with the world. I’ll start by sharing it with you. Find below a list of links that help me, entertain me, soothe me, and uplift me. Here’s hoping one of them helps you, too.

WHY MOST THERAPISTS HATE BETTER HELP This is my favorite rant to mentally rehearse lately; every time I hear a Better Help ad in the middle of a podcast I want to scream. Usually I just angrily tap skip ahead like six times to avoid exposing myself to the predatory, unethical, dark capitalism that BH represents. 

After spending a few days in Harry Potter heaven, I’ve been unwinding at night by diving deeeeep into HP wiki. The thread I’m pulling now is all things Snape. IYKYK.

After listening to this interview, I can’t wait to watch the new documentary all about the 2018 rescue of a Thai soccer team from a flooded cave.

Maintenance Phase is brilliant, and Rachel Hollis’s toxicity is my second favorite rant to mentally rehearse, so, naturally, these episodes and this article were very fun for me.

After finding a giant vintage dollhouse at a local thrift store, I’ve been reading up on #dollhousing and this site is proving invaluable. Wish me luck!

This is such a beautiful read.

Television and cinema’s Black Lady Therapist is “the sounding board and sage giver of advice, a 21st century incarnation of the broader and much older Black Best Friend trope.” 

My local book club is reading, comparing, and contrasting three books this month: Night by Elie Wiesel, The Hiding Place by Corrie ten Boom, and Man’s Search for Meaning by Viktor Frankl. All three were written by Halocaust survivors and emphasize different perspectives on the experience. 

Just got tickets to this interactive Van Gogh exhibit and I cannot WAIT.

I watched this documentary a few weeks ago and can’t shake it. Families of origin, genealogy, and intergenerational trauma are all endlessly fascinating to me.

For my LDS friends: What do you think of this article on the rise of liberal Mormonism? Hit reply; I’d love to hear from you!

And, last but not least, my third favorite rant these days. #sorrynotsorry

For information on working with Caitlin, look no further.
