Why don’t you think you need it? Ohhhh, it’s only for “crazy people”. That’s right I forgot you felt that way. Well this just in… YOU ARE CRAZY, if you don’t think you need therapy.
Most of us have come from troubled homes; verbal and physical abuse, fatherless, motherless, drug and alcohol influences, battery, you’re the “dark” one in the family or the “light” one… and lets not go into sexual abuse. The list could go on and on as I’m sure you would agree. So, if you think these issues are not oozing into you daily life and relationships with others you have been more bamboozled then when the Plymouth Rock fell on us.
Life is a complex journey by itself and must be handled with intelligence and forethought. The wounds that we all have are not healed, simply covered with layers and layers of excuses and distraction. The root of what we feel is not cured, just sustained and not very well maintained.
The next time you have an argument with your love one, you yell at your children instead of talking to them, you complain about a person at work that you just can’t stand, you curse the driver in front of you… take a minute to consider, really consider what you’re feeling at the time, in your heart. I’m sure it will be a striking pain in your chest that you can’t explain. Your head may hurt or your stomach is somehow in knots. This is because the source of your anger, grief and short-temperedness has not been handled and resolved.
Therapy, life-coaching and counseling is not for crazy people, it’s for people conscious enough to know they need it.
