It's so common to struggle with making sense of where to go next. Some part of us knows that life should feel different. We might long for more peace with or within our bodies. Maybe it's the ability to have hard conversations with our families or deeper, more meaningful relationships with our partners. Or maybe we're just trying to figure out how to be less alone with our grief and our pain.
We live in a world that too often sends us the message that what we feel is too much. We come to believe that what makes us different, makes us a burden, and that we should learn how to deal with it on our own. It can be unthinkable, imagining that what we carry could ever feel lighter. And I can promise you that something mysterious and powerful happens when we speak about just how heavy that burden is. Something new emerges.
To need help is human. What makes us different, makes us powerful. We are not broken for suffering; what we feel does not need fixing. I believe that our hurts are signal flares from some deeper, more intact self. Our hurts light the way to a better relationship with the world around us. Therapy is the practice of learning how to follow these signals — but with someone walking alongside you, this time.

We each find our own ways of dealing with the isolation, the limitations, and the challenges of living in bodies that pain us. But we don't have to do it alone.
