All I can say from my own experience is that the effort is worth it. Things can still feel like they're unraveling all around us when we thought we had it all figured out and put back on the shelf. But I am finding that the good spells are a lot longer and that the bad ones don't cause me to melt down like I did years ago.
Nobody living can ever stop me
As I go walking my freedom highway.
Nobody living can make me turn back:
This land was made for you and me. (Woody Guthrie)
