My writing at the moment is quite sporadic. I am looking forward to the time when I can spend more time fulfilling this side of my life. The last six months or so I have dedicated to growing my counselling practice. This has been successful as I have the pleasure to be supporting more people with their mental health. As I wrote in my last blog, I have been manifesting aspects of my life which I want to enhance. All the work and energy that I put into my business and work with clients has been paying off. I am finding it hard to write today, this sometimes happens when I have not written for a long time. I will be kind to myself and just keep writing, see where it takes me. Life anything in life, the key is to let it be and do not force it. Supporting people with their mental health can bring up many similarities in patterns of thought. One of these is how people try and push away, get rid of, run away from feelings they deem ‘negative’. We naturally do not want to ‘feel’ difficult emotions or pain and so in whatever means possible we try and separate from them. We now believe on some level that we are safe. We are not. All you are doing is delaying the inevitable. Facing the pain is never as bad as you imagine, it is the fear of the unknown which we all know can be a big fear and one which can keep us stuck.
This is a post that I started to write in December 2019. I value my writing so I have kept it as it is. It feels nice to not feel like I have to post what I deem ‘perfect’. I accept my writing as it is. I accept myself as I am.
