Lasting change generally takes time and hard work.
When we seek to master almost anything in life, we take classes, hire coaches and consultants, seek gurus and guides.
Under the best of circumstances, this being human that we get to be, this crazy gift that we have been given to live, takes enormous skill and a great deal of support to manage with even a modicum of grace. And this gift calls us to honor it with all the awakeness that we can muster.
Being human takes skill, patience, and a lot of practice.
Be good to yourself.
Find someone to practice with!
(If it helps to know, I have used therapy abundantly over the course of my life. Whenever I’m stuck and my own self-healing work is not doing the job, I return to therapy. When I have had a good therapist, or it has been a good fit, I HAVE ALWAYS made it through the stuckness to a new place!)
