Ep10. Stop Trying to Fix It: How Efforts to Rescue Those in Pain and Suffering Can Actually Make it Worse

Season #3

EPISODE DESCRIPTION – You know that uncomfortable feeling when you know someone is hurting and you feel kind of awkward because you don't know what to say, but you want to help them somehow, just to fix it for them? Well, this week, Zena breaks down why that initial urge for us to want to fix the problem, while well-intentioned, might actually be less supportive than the alternative. She'll introduce ideas and experiences that might just change the way you respond to your own suffering and that of others as well. 
 
UP NEXT - How all of this actually applies to story. And what you can do to utilize this in your stories to maximize the full potential and the arc of your character and their journeys.
