Harriet Cabelly is a licensed clinical social worker and positive psychology coach. After 20 years of service in a public school, she changed paths to focus on a topic that affects us all: adversity, and how people overcome it.

Over 3 years, she curated 36 interviews with people like Temple GrandinMeredith Vieira, and Cheryl Strayed, focused on uncovering strategies for growth and self-actualization after life deals you a difficult hand.

At the root of her interviews- and this conversation- are a few questions:

  • How do people manage to live well despite the adversities they’ve faced?
  • How can struggles be blessings?
  • What routines and coping mechanisms helped when you’ve faced challenges?
  • Where does resilience come from?

Harriet and I unpack these questions using examples from her book and our own lives. Whether you’re facing difficult times or accept that life will eventually force you to grow from adversity, this conversation sheds light on how one lives well despite their struggles.
