I believe that we have within us the abilities to live our lives well. That we become stuck or lost or scared or feel depressed or anxious is often the result of what we have lived through, and how these past-events impact on us now.
It can be confusing and frightening to find ourselves repeating behaviours or feeling stuck, not knowing which way to turn and feeling unable to make decisions. We can find ourselves blocked and unable to access those parts of us that can cope, perhaps through fear or not feeling able to trust.
We may begin to see the world as a hostile place that is impossible to make sense of. Our lives can begin to seem pointless or we may find ourselves living a life that just doesn’t feel fulfilling.
