Something I have learned is that a good therapist will listen and guide you to find your own answers. Quite often we know the appropriate answers for our life's challenges, it just takes saying them outloud to be recognized. Good job!
It is wonderful that you get to share this gift with your children and grandchildren. Often we don't go towards our lives confused on purpose...and our children usually figure that out. Your gratitude shows, and I celebrate it with you!
I believe all of us are on a journey throughout life. It takes many paths and many trials before we become who we are intended to be. Thearpists, friends, problems, failures, successes all help us learn (if we choose to do so) who we are and how we want to live. As we breathe we continue to be in the process of being. ld
