When do you cry, or feel the urge to cry? Crying is most often associated with sadness, but is actually so much larger than that.

My anxious life started in childhood as a result of my misinterpretation of ridicule by other children and the effects of growing up in alcoholic households. As a result of carrying these childhood traumas in adulthood, I hit an emotional bottom during my mid-twenties. On my road to recovery, I discovered one truth—the beliefs and perceptions about myself and others were the basis of my anxiety. In this talk I will discuss the work I have done to change my distorted thinking that has led to a happier and less anxious life.

Claire Wilson, MSW, Pastoral Care Coordinator at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Greater Lynn, located in Swampscott, will offer some thoughts about cultivating a caring community.
