Ep. 2.18: Your Breakup Letter With Academia
Part 3 of our Leaving Your Toxic Relationship With the Academy series. Karen and Kel talk about writing a breakup letter with the academy: what would you say? The goal is to move from blame (“you suck!”) to how you feel (“I feel really sad about leaving”). Karen is very bad at this. We draw from Joanna Macy’s transformative work on environmental grief that charts a path from despair to empowerment and interconnectedness. You have resilience you may have forgotten in the infantilizing university structure.
