What would it feel like to not be a slave to our thoughts, emotions, memories, or life circumstances? This lack of freedom brings suffering. We try everything we can to fix the situation, make the pain go away, to feel better again. And we only end up feeling worse. More hopeless. More pain. And there is a different approach, one that seems counterintuitive. It's about learning to relate to our pain in a different way. There is something profound about enterning into our pain rather than trying to fix it that brings joy back into our lives.
Willingness to approach pain in a new way is hard work, and can feel difficult, vulnerable, and overwhelming. I am always in awe of my clients as they learn this process and experience life in a new way. I am humbled that I get to be a part of the process.
