From the article:
"That is why Patty Mark’s story is even more important today. Because what Patty teaches is that, if we are to heal ourselves or the world around us, we cannot follow the advice that modern life gives us: seek safety above all else. The drumbeat of “safe spaces” and “self-care” does not actually lead us to feel more settled or safe. Instead, it traps us in an echo chamber of fear. To the contrary, the solution to fear isn’t safety. It’s bravery, i.e., crossing lines that seem dangerous. And, in many cases, the more dangerous the line, the more therapeutic the impact of crossing it — not just for individuals but for our society as a whole."
