Quote: Reflection on Life Direction

“It’s easier to experience symptoms than it is to explore causes.”  -HSW

Therapy, if engaged seriously, can be hard work. It involves challenge and discomfort and pushing through resistance into new territory. The advantage is creating fresh possibilities and satisfaction in your life.

It’s much easier to simply keep doing what you’re doing. The only downside to that is you are likely to continue being right where you are.

If you’re considering therapy, remember this nugget from Lao Tzu: “If you do not change direction, you may wind up where you are heading.”

Is that where you want to go?
