I love this quote by Byron Katie. It is so important to sit with the truth of this. What story are we telling ourselves? How do we know? I often share this story with my clients: A man and his 2 teenage boys get on a subway car. The man sits down rather out of it and the boys are running up and down the car being very disruptive. The father does nothing. Meanwhile the other riders are getting pretty pissed off. Finally someone angrily says to the dad – “Hey aren’t these your boys? Why don’t you teach em a little manners or get off the subway!” “Oh, sorry, said the still dazed dad. Their mother just died. I guess we all are a bit off today…” The blessing of doing the kind of work I do with my clients is that it gives us a chance to get to know ourselves better and become better able to handle the challenges of difficult relationships. As we get to know, understand and even love ourselves better, we find we can become more loving, more understanding and more patient with others. Family dynamics shift, decisions about work, friends, love and life really do become more clear. How would you like to change your life?
