MAKE LIFE FUN AGAIN
“It wasn't until I accepted myself just as I was that I was free to change.”
- Carl Rogers
- Carl Rogers
This is the beginning of the work - practicing self awareness, on purpose, with less and less judgement, more and more acceptance, gradually.
This is the bulk of the work for most of us - therapy that helps us heal our wounds and re-parent abandon parts of ourselves, so we can live whole and authentically. This is not easy or quick work, but in my experience, it is incredibly powerful.
Combining coaching and counselling we can harness the power of the mind and build healthy habits of thought and action. We may need to first work with the way the mind has been trained but soon we can become more aligned with our values and more disciplined in ourselves, rooted in love.
We can't do this alone. We need networks of people - friends and family. We need to learn how to set boundaries and ask for help. This is the hardest thing you might do, because each person we relate to has their own mind--full-of-mess: traumas, triggers and stories. But it's what makes everything else worth it - the joy of friendship and community.
