“ I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, NOT the life others expected of me “
The top five regrets of the dying – by Bronnie Ware
My thoughts about this saying – Over the expansion of time since I began Counselling, I have found most people don’t really know who they are. When asked “Who are you?” most people tell me their roles in life, or titles they have, or the tasks they do.
What about asking yourself “Who am I ?” If you don’t really know, ask people around you (NOT your roles, titles or tasks). Then explore the nice person you are. The values you have within yourself. Your heart attitude. Your emotions. What hurts you. What colours you like. What kind of people do you like. Follow through with this exercise and explore the person you are. You will find an exciting, beautiful, loveable, etc etc etc person you are. Sometimes we forget and look very negatively and critical at ourselves. This is NOT true. We were’nt born that way. We all have pieces of our hearts that are really wonderful. If you are having trouble finding them, give us a call and we’d love to help you.
