The Problem You “Think” Is The Problem… Probably Isn’t

Understanding That You’re Human

I have something that I LOVE to tell to all of my clients.

“That makes you Human. Welcome. We’ve been waiting for you.”

I say this nearly every session.

It is SO common for all of us to think that we are just one huge complete mess of a “thing” that needs 5 Billion different drugs, vitamins, minerals, products, and services to fix us.

We don’t know how we will EVER become a “normal” human being.

But I have found that about 95%+ of the time, the things we “think” are broken in us, just simply aren’t.

I’m not saying that disorders and diseases “don’t” exist — they do.

My Brother-In-Law is someone who lives with a real disorder.

What I AM saying is that MOST of the things that we think make us “Broken” are just misunderstandings of things that just make us Human.

Frequently I get clients that ask me things like, “Why do I do X all the time? It’s not normal and I should see someone about it.”

Or, “Why do I keep having Y feeling come back again and again?”
