You are not broken

Across the couch, I've been listening for more than a decade.

I've been listening to women and men, young and old, witnessing their unfolding and walking beside them as they take tenuous steps toward feeling better.

I've noticed a few things:

  • You are not broken. Never have been and never will be.
  • Those things you hate about yourself? Those things make you beautiful and unique ( ... and just may be cause for celebration).
  • You can go from I'm not OK because this crappy thing happened to I'm OK, even though this crappy thing happened.
  • There are strong parts of you, no matter how small they feel at times.

Love, Maureen
