Suzanne delves into the concept of a 'Dark Night of the Soul,' clarifying its meaning as a profoundly difficult period in one's.  She emphasises the importance of context in communication through a personal story of misunderstanding cultural references after moving to a different part of Australia.

Suzanne differentiates between passing disappointments and the more intense experiences that qualify as a 'Dark Night of the Soul,' suggesting that such periods can lead to significant, albeit challenging, personal growth.

She encourages open discussion and questioning as ways to navigate these difficult times and highlights the power of having someone 'hold space' for listening and understanding without judgment or offering immediate solutions.
