The upside of doubt
Do you ask yourself life’s big questions—and can you admit you may not have all the answers? Turns out a willingness to entertain your doubts and uncertainties may make you more resilient. A recent Case Western Reserve University study found that people who accepted their inner spiritual conflicts were less depressed than those who suppressed their doubts. Being willing to address troubling, conflicting beliefs indicated a richer, more nuanced ability to experience and respond to the world.
