Everyone that comes in for a consultation with me is unique. No two people have had the same upbringing, perspectives, feelings, past life events, etc. So, when someone says that their goal is to get better, I want to know: what does getting better mean to you?
Here are some responses I’ve heard:
What does getting worse mean?
For most people, it means that I’m still feeling that which I don’t want to feel and you are responsible for helping me get better. Getting worse means that I am more aware of that which I don’t like.
Now, what if, the pain was supposed to be there? What if your pain has a message for you?
You pain carries within it an opportunity. An opportunity to change your life in some way. Pain tells you to 1. Stop 2. Pay Attention 3. Do something different. If you keep doing the same things you’ve always done, you’re going to keep getting the same results you’ve always gotten. Change the patterns in your life and your life changes.
