Have you ever sat down and thought about all the things you do wrong? Not critiquing others and pointing out all their wrongdoings. But instead, choosing to put your attention on you!
We can’t fix others, but we can fix ourselves.
A year ago, I started therapy. I wanted to heal all of my open wombs and work on becoming a better me. Not just for me but for everyone that I love. You see, I do this funny thing. Well, maybe funny isn’t the right word, more like a thing that was in desperate need of change.
I use to have a habit of cutting off communication with people. Not because I don’t like them but more so because my feelings may be hurt about something. And instead of talking it through, I’ll just pretend like you don’t exist.
But wait, here’s the interesting part. I didn’t think that I needed therapy about this. But after hours and hours of talking, I discovered that cutting off communication was the root of all my problems. As well as overthinking situations and making them a bigger deal than what they really were.
The Big Discovery
I NEED TO continue to CHANGE! There I said it… I need to continue to fix me and get out of my head!
I’ve realized that I’m doing more harm than good by ending communication. If I really love you, why in the world would I stop talking to you. Instead, we can talk through our problems then choose to either solve it and move on together peacefully or decide to have closure and end on friendly terms.
Anyways during my sessions, I was forced to admit that I love to love. I will bend over backward to help anyone. My listening skills are top-notch, and I will allow you to vent, vent, and vent some more. But with the help of therapy, I’ve learned to speak up to you and not to anyone else when I feel that our friendship/relationship is one-sided.
So, in conclusion, today and tomorrow will be good days. My need and want for change are working on the same level these days, and I could not be more enthusiastic about it.
