I asked my therapist, “What if I tell myself that it is okay if someone responded in a bad manner? They might as well be suffering, right?”
Of course, it is a good thing to run a marathon.
But the best runners, train themselves before the event.
However, if you go haven’t trained yourself at all and you get up one day and go run, can you imagine what all pain will you endure?
And now imagine how long have you been running this marathon!
So the way to be actually able to run that marathon is to train our brain, to understand our emotions first, and why we feel in the pain.
Otherwise, it is only a continuous run of pain, not a marathon in reality.
Something really deep to reflect upon.
Therapy is helping me.
I’m also getting broken into pieces.
But therapy is the glue that helps me fix them, instead of the cement that helps me conceal them. And that’s powreful.
Also, life is beautiful 🙂
Today I was talking to my therapist, and I don’t know how I spoke about two different sides of me:
The one is the kiddish side of me who wants to come out, and the other is the side that is expected to be mature.
And she said a line: “If people around us are not giving us that space, you better go take it.”
She also went on to tell a story, saying if you are sitting on a bench in a park, enjoying your view, and someone comes and sits next to you, what would you do?
“I’ll get up and leave!”
“Most people would shift a bit, then again shift a bit if they come closer, and over time, they would just fall of the bench. In the process, they also ruin their view. What if you just claim that view to be yours, that no one can take away?”
“I agree, I just get up and leave from such views, and keep wandering…”
OMG, she makes me speak such truths about myself that are so buried inside!
Now she has given me a task to be more spontaneous and less calculative during the week. Fingers crossed :))
Had the first therapy session today.
Who in the world talks about it openly?
Well, we haven’t been open, that is why we have been needing therapy 🙂
On that note, it felt a bit better. Even though it will take some time to heal unseen wounds of years, well, all is well that starts well. 😊
