Here are the notes for episode #41 of Naked Humanity.

Today’s episode goes deep. A listener writes in with the question: is life worth living? This is not an uncommon question. But, have people always struggled with life’s worthwhileness and meaning? Stefani talks about the idea of meaning and why people today are more convinced life is meaningless than ever before. She also offers some surprising paths forward out of the abyss. (Important note, Stefani doesn’t presume to be able to solve mental health disorders and wouldn’t dare to.)
