Knowledge is power, but only wisdom is liberty - Will Durant
Poos and wees.
It's funny right? I think it is.
Or maybe it's not.
Whatever the case, poos and wees, are poos and wees.
A session with one of my patients today took an interesting turn.
They, like many of my patients suffer from mood and anxiety problems.
They feel as though life takes them for a ride.
The slings and arrows of life and such...they feel like they have no control over the things that happen to them in life.
Our perceptions of our reality can truly affect how we feel and think about our lives; but it doesn't change reality.
The only thing we have control over is how we think.
We must find a way to 'slow' down what happens between what we sense/perceive and the resultant feeling that happens next - which might be joy, sadness or anger.
