“We are fragile creatures, and it is from this weakness, not despite it, that we discover the possibility of true joy.”
Just as physical pain lets us know when we are injured, emotional pain alerts us to the psychological wounds that prevent us from living our best lives.
Symptoms or destructive patterns are usually misguided attempts at resolving these wounds.
The toxic job you can't seem to quit? The upsetting thoughts you can't push out of your head? The breakup you haven't gotten over? Believe it or not, circumstances like these actually hold the key to a richer, more satisfying life. Working with a counselor or therapist can help you access that life.
