This week Sarah and Julia read chapter 6 of “What Would Virginia Woolf Do?” by Nina Lorez Collins – and this chapter is entitled “Emotions”. We are continuing to love this book and Nina’s writing. Seriously – we highly recommend this book!

Chapter 6 is all about the emotions we go through as women in midlife and what we can do about them. Because for some of us, acknowledging that we’re having these emotions is already a big step, and then figuring out how and whether to act on them is a whole other thing.

Also, the chapter deals with depression, which turns out affects women more than men, and which is a very serious thing, not “just a case of the blues.”

There are medical treatments for depression, and that’s something for each person to discuss with their doctor. But the point of the chapter – and we agree wholeheartedly – is that you should feel empowered to do whatever feels right to you in order to feel better.

Whether that’s by taking the right medication, prioritizing self-care, eliminating clutter and sparking more joy, setting better boundaries, seeking mindfulness – whatever works for you. Figure out what you need and don’t be afraid to go get it.

As Nina's therapist says, "If not now, when?"
