We All Need a Safe Space to Heal, and the Safest Places is With People You Love

Updated: Mar 21

Have you ever felt like a swimmer who’s gone out too far? Like your feet can’t touch bottom?

That was me at one point in my life.

I found that I’d left the safe shores far behind.

It was exhilarating at first. Then it was scary. Then it got worse. Those were rocky days for me. I needed a safe harbor. Someplace where I could get myself together again. Maybe you know what I’m talking about.

Maybe you’re suffering from mental health issues right now and you can identify.

Well, it turns out I found my safe space—with friends I care about, and who care about me.

And one of the things we did, as friends, was to read the Transformative Plays by playwright Carl Stillitano. Carl’s work is so brave. That’s the first word I think of when I think of what he’s done. Brave.

See, everyone else in society hates to talk about the stuff that bothers us.

Like violence in our culture. Or misogyny. Or the perils of getting older. Or having someone you love pass away.

On and on, the list of these issues progresses. The longer it gets, the less people want to talk about them.

Carl’s plays turn that dynamic completely on its ear. They offer a forum in which That Which Shall Not Be Discussed is given a name. Is discussed in the open.

Turns out that the more we talk about these things—our fears and misgivings, our hurdles and hangups—the less power they have over us. Isn’t that amazing?

Just by reading some plays out loud with friends and sometimes perfect strangers, I was healed of so many problems. So many burdens were lifted off my shoulders.

I owe a great debt to Carl Stillitano and his Transformative Play collection.

That’s why I highly recommend them to you now.

If you or someone you love is trying to master your mental health, look no further than the Transformative Plays by playwright Carl Stillitano.

Buy them now … and get your life back on track.

You deserve it.

We all deserve it.
