lately. You can read the blog at the link in my signature line.
Personal Hell Words...
The weak sinews become strong by their conflict with difficulties...Frederic
Related Words - the hot place, infernal regions, place of torment
Even though we may not live in the devastated areas, as we experience the
images on our television sets & in our newspapers, we often find ourselves in
our own personal hell. Here are some quotes from my patients this week -
How can I think about my measly problems when people I see people struggling
for their lives?
What does it really matter if I smoke or not?
This is no time to stop biting my nails!
Working to organize myself & my goals seems sinfull in light of what is
I feel like a spoiled child who should be ashamed.
I can't enjoy any part of my life knowing that in those very same moments
people are suffering.
I feel like it's not ok to laugh or tell a joke.
Nothing seems important.
My fears seem meaningless, almost as if I should shut-up about them.
I'm on a short fuse these days.
I can't eat without feeling guilty.
One minute my kids are driving me bonkers & the next minute I can't stop
I keep having flashbacks from my childhood. I feel like life as I know it is
It's very easy to be dragged down into a tragedy, even though we may live
thousands of miles away. The images we see & the words that accompany them are
all triggers for our own subconscious mind programs. They can make us feel
very uncomfortable, even guilty & filled with shame. There is anger & disbelief
to contend with as well. We are witnesses to the fragility of life & quickly
things can change.
