|"Repetition is not failure. Ask the waves, ask the leaves, ask the wind." Mark Nepo|
So often I have people say to me in therapy that they thought they had already dealt with this particular issue, and, of course, they have --- on an earlier level. I believe that inner growth is like layers of an onion. We deal with one layer, and then, when we are ready, we are given the opportunity to deal with the next layer of the same issue. Much of life is dismantling the beliefs we absorbed which no longer serve us. The beliefs may have served our parents, our school personnel, our church leaders, and even ourselves as younger selves; but they no longer serve us. So it is time to thank the belief and let it go. That enables us to move on into a higher level of functioning and sense of well-being.
