It Takes a Village: How Systemic Humanity Changes Lives with Dr. Michael LibertazzoMay 30, 2023 | by Patricia M. Barbarito
From the heartbreak of a misspent youth to the hope of completing a nontraditional educational path at the highest level, from serving among September 11th’s first responders to facing a seemingly unbeatable cancer diagnosis, from supporting doctors, nurses and other healthcare providers during the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic to rallying financial assistance for rescue dogs in the United States’ poorest county, Michael embraces the idea that truly strong individuals are either actively contributing to the wellbeing of others or graciously accepting the help and support they themselves need.
Other highlights from this episode include:
- Why it is vital to know and appreciate what you have to offer your family, friends, and community at large;
- How to become a positive part of systemic humanity by absorbing kindness while also giving it;
- Why the semantics of “selfish” should be revisited and the idea of self-preserving embraced in its stead;
- How a mindfulness practice that includes letting go of negativity and setting a daily intention can greatly improve your outlook on life; and so much more.
