“Always be humble and kind” was a huge country hit last year, and Dr. Margaret talks in this episode about making mistakes and learning from them. How do you actually do that? She offers five pragmatic ideas of accepting mistakes, and specific questions to ask so that you may be less likely to make them all over again. The process takes integrity, humility and even courage.

Today’s email from a listener is how you cope with friends and family not being as close as they used to be, when you’re struggling with depression or anxiety. How do you not feel abandoned?
