There and Back

One of the very first things

One of the very first things my very first therapist said to me was that therapy wouldn't be able to make me "not me". That there were some things that you just couldn't change. I remember saying at the time that that was fine - I didn't want to not be me - but looking back on that it feels like I was very young.

I'm realizing now that there is some stuff I'm not going to change about myself and that while I may not like it (and sometimes it makes me want to shout) I get more mileage out of trying to be gentle with myself. Which is hard too sometimes.

Maybe I could use some mindfulness too. :)

I totally recommend it,

I totally recommend it, particularly if you've got an extra half hour a day to do the "homework." You can google "Ottawa Mindfulness Clinic," and they'll come up.

Thanks for dropping by!
