“When you come to the edge of all the light you know and are about to step into the darkness of the unknown, Faith is knowing that one of two things will happen. There will be solid ground to stand on, or you will be taught to fly.” Author Unknown.
Women are amazing. We are. Sometimes we are amazing because of what we do for a living. Sometimes we are amazing because of who we are to the people we care about…mother, sister, wife, aunt, friend, daughter. Sometimes. But every time we are amazing just because we exist in this world.
We are ENOUGH just because we exist in this world. We are good enough.
The tough part about that message is that it isn’t usually what we hear very often. Whether we hear criticism from our family, our community or our inner voice…it comes at us fast and furious that we need to be more. We are not enough. There is something wrong with how we look, think, act. That we need to keep trying until we are good enough.
Women who seek counseling have usually had enough of this message. Sometimes they don’t know they have had enough of this message…they just know they have deep sadness, or constant anxiety, or that their marriage is in crisis. They sometimes feel they aren’t a good enough parent, or that they don’t know who they are supposed to be as they grow into adulthood. Sometimes they don’t know how their own story, their own traumas, are impacting how they carry themselves in every relationship in their lives.
Through counseling, there is a place to explore all of this. To find clarity, to repair the hurts, to understand maybe somewhere along the way we have been believing the wrong messages about ourselves.
