And I have taken two months to learn that time passes so quickly it is tragic and so slowly it loses meaning. That emotions are in such great contrast they become paradoxical, and though confusing, these are the most real of feelings.
What would my clients think if they knew that I suffered from loneliness? In what way would it affect the therapy? Are they under the assumption that as their therapist, I have everything figured out in my life, and that I subsequently enjoy a life of relational stability and meaningful relationships?

The thing is, it’s good to have a focus. And it’s great to be known for something. I just hope that you’re not limiting yourself out of fear.
When we take the time to heal from past connections, it allows us to finally build up the emotional capacity to experience and try at a new connection again, because isn’t that our purpose on this earth? To love?

You will not find a love that is perfect, but you will find a love that reminds you that goodness exists. This love, it will inject honey into the soul of you, it will feel like warmth has cracked within your bones. And you will see how it learns you, and fights for you, and stays to weather the storms by your side. You will be reminded that there is connection in a world that often chooses distance over depth.
