The anxiety of my 17-yr old client was over the top.  The stress of always needing to do her best; and to compete with her peers in school and in sport, took its toll on her body. She was diagnosed with a bleeding ulcer. Ignoring the cues of your body is one form of not being honest with yourself. We all do this, including telling ourselves what we want to believe in hopes that it will be true. Your honesty frees you to live self-aware and awake. How is honesty an important part of your authentic happiness? Join me in the episode of 'Therapy Best Practices'. Have a Therapy Question for Me?

You ALWAYS speak truth. I HEAR you. I am so grateful that although I am unable to be a client at this time, and your fees are incredibly REASONABLE; you’ve provided these wonderful theory sessions. With love and respect for a wonderful teacher, Judith O.

I needed to hear this!
i realized that, as a person who also suppresses her feelings, i HAVE TO take a good lesson from this client's story

Lying to myself is devastating and I’ve been doing it for decades.🫤
I don’t know how to go back and fix all the self harm I’ve done, but I need to do better moving forward.
