Often given as a graduation gift, Dr. Seuss’s Oh’ The Places You’ll Go is a masterpiece reminding us of the natural ups and downs of life and the dangers life entails. While hardly a cure for diagnostic depression or anxiety, it is a comfort to the soul.
I read it routinely to my 7 year old son, as an elixir against the poor choices, hard circumstances, and stuck places that will surely be a part of his life. And I breath it into my own restless psyche that worries about my path.
Really. Give it a go. Like a long bath on a stressful day, it will help heal what ails.
