  1. I’m very interested in Mister Rogers. The quote you shared reminded me of his words when he said:

    “If we in public television can only make it clear that feelings are mentionable and manageable, we will have done a great service for mental health.”

      1. He created and hosted a popular children’s TV show in America in the 70s and 80s. It seems he had an amazingly kind presence to a lot of people.

        I see a lot of truth in the quote you shared. Took it to suggest that when we try to hide a truth from ourselves it doesn’t free us from the effects of that truth. Whereas if we can “mention” something and face something we begin to be able to “manage” and cope with it. To be able to also see and therefore gain some control over its effects in our lives.
