Talk more. Be emotional. Be strong. Be happy. Be happy all the time. Pay your mortgage. Pay the bills. Help with homework. Pay the other bills. Work long days. Be a good child. Be a good parent. Be a good citizen. Care about the environment. Care about everybody. Volunteer.
It's great if you're able to clap along happily all the time, but that's not the reality for most of us. Rather we're pushed and pulled all over the place and have strong emotions about lots of things. What is the point of everything we're put through, and everything we put ourselves through?
I don't know the answer. Only you do.
What I do know is how to give you space, encouragement, challenge, guidance and tenderness in a professional relationship to help you figure out what's brought you here, what your pressures are and what you're being put through....and how you can move forward.
