“And time won’t heal a thing. It’s just something you say when you don’t know where to begin…”.
I’m totally digging this jam right now. The lyric above definitely caught my attention. As a mental health therapist, I tend to describe myself as a “realist”. Though I am very empathic, I simply do not believe in fluff. Fluff may be ok for very young children, but for the adults I work with, if you are coming into therapy with me, work is what we will do. 😉
Time is going to pass regardless… Consequently, I always encourage the individuals I work with to use their time wisely. Remember that you cannot undo the past, but you can live and enjoy the present moment, and look forward to a more promising future. I encourage all of us to live by the previous sentence, gain acceptance, forgive, let go of resentments, build and maintain healthy boundaries, and learn how to love yourself so that you may love others.
Hope you enjoyed yet another jam I’m hollering about. I also hope you have a wonderful day!
**As always, thanks for reading**
I look into your eyes prepared to utter my truths, but the tight lump in my throat obstructs the words.
I take a deep breath while my thoughts fumble and jumble and eventually convince me to refrain.
But, wait, I’m determined to express how I feel!!! Oh, who am I kidding? My cognitions are so commanding.
They manage to silence my feelings by way of intimidation. Somehow, all that I wanted to say sounds like, “Yea, I’m ok”, followed by a faux smile.
Wise men and women across the earth have exclaimed that one cannot have his or her cake and eat it too. I use to wonder, “Well, why the hell not?” However, as an adult women who has had intimate relationships, I now fully understand. If you’ve made the choice to establish a relationship with another, in other words, if you have decided to share some of yourself with another, then things are no longer all about you. You must be considerate of both you and the other party’s desires. At any time you are unwilling to do so, then that’s the time you need to make the decision to leave the relationship and keep to your damn self. Once I notice that any of my relationships are too one-sided, I’m on it. If things do not improve, I’m out! I have had a few opportunities to turn my back on inconsiderate pricks….just packed up my baggage, slipped into my flip flops and I’m out the door. Feels good to know your worth! #0FKSGVN.
Hope you enjoy this jam as much as I do. 😉
