"What is the bravest thing you've ever said?" asked the boy.
"Help," said the horse. -Charlie Mackesy
Imagine that with some time you learn to trust me, but really trust me. You feel like you can be just as you are and like you don’t need to wear a mask, even in the midst of sharing a fear or being vulnerable. Imagine that when you are doing this I don’t run away or trivialize what is giving you trouble or how you hurt.
Instead, I sit with you – sometimes over and over. There is no need to change or be different before I can accept you.
Then, when it’s right, I will learn to attend to your troubles carefully and decisively.
Whether this looks like teaching tools, discerning facts and creating a plan, discussing philosophy, cultivating an inner dialogue of compassion, or finding what electrifies you, I will know how to care for you because you’ll feel safe enough to let me. With time this collaborative caring becomes a familiar practice between us. When you take the practice out into your own life amazing things will start to happen.
I know that if you are willing to put in the work with me, finding what you’re looking for, be it meaning, belonging, peace, or vitality in your life, is entirely possible.
Should this speak to you, I encourage you to learn more about what our work might specifically look like here: About Me
